Are your eyelids puffy or drooping? Do you always look tired, even if you’re well rested? Are your eyes beginning to show your age? With the eyes being the “windows to your soul,” it’s important to have them look their best to ensure you look youthful and well-rested. If patients have puffy eyelids, bags under their eyes, or drooping upper eyelids, it may be time to speak to a professional about surgical interventions. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, patients can learn more about a surgical procedure to refresh the eyes known as an eyelid lift.
Understanding how the eyelid lift works
There are many facial surgeries that can be used to assist in turning back the hands of time. The eyelid lift is just one of these popular treatments. The eyelid lift, also called a blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can be used to address many of the common changes that can occur to the eyelids with age. Patients can eliminate puffy eyes, correct drooping upper lids, and erase the common signs of aging found in the eyes. Men and women who undergo blepharoplasty often feel more self-confident with their appearance and enjoy looking more youthful.
The eyelid lift is performed on patients with either local anesthetics or general anesthesia. Incisions are made along the natural eyelid lines to reduce the visibility of scars that may be left behind. During the treatment, fat, muscle, and excess skin are removed to tighten and improve the eye area. This procedure helps patients achieve desirable results with long-lasting impact.
How much does eyelid surgery cost?
The cost of such treatments vary from patient to patient, determined by the extent of the surgery and what is being done during surgery. By consulting with our team and getting an initial examination performed, our team can provide a more accurate quote for the cost of services.
