Eyelid and Brow Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

As people age, the skin of the forehead stretches and the eyebrows begin to droop. This, often accompanied by puffiness around the eyes, can give a tired or saddened appearance to the face. In fact, one of the most common problems that patients present to our office with is being told that they always “look tired”. Several procedures are available to refresh forehead skin, decrease wrinkling and frown lines, and raise the eyebrows. This can give both a more youthful appearance and a refreshed look. Depending on the patient’s needs and desires, incisions can be placed in the hair or at the hairline. In many cases, advanced endoscopic techniques allow browlifting to be done through four or five small incisions back in the hair allowing for minimal discomfort and rapid healing.
Downtime: 7-10 days Cost $3500-4500.00 depending on type of browlift

The eyes are often referred to as the window upon the soul.
With aging, people often develop a weariness or droopy appearance to the upper eyelids and bags under the lower eyelids. Contemporary blepharoplasty can remove excess skin and fat from the eyelids giving a more refreshed appearance. The upper eyelid incision line is hidden within the upper eyelid crease and is often un-detectable after the healing process is complete. The lower eyelid incision is often either in a crease just below the lashes, or behind the eyelid itself leaving no external scar.
Downtime: 5-7 days for upper lids, 7-10 days for lower lids Cost: Upper $2500.00 Lower 3500.00 (includes chemical peel of lower eyelid skin)
