Eye Lift Cosmetic Surgery
Eye lift cosmetic surgery (also called blepharoplasty) is a procedure that can help make tired, puffy and saggy eyes look bright and fresh! By removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eye lid, you can achieve natural-looking eyes that shave years off your appearance. With an eye lift surgery, people will notice the difference, but not know what’s different about you!
Obtain a Fresher, Younger Look – Eye lift surgery is an effective way to reduce the signs of aging without drastically changing the look of your face. While it is impossible to turn back the hands of time, it is possible to look younger than you are. Eye life surgery may be performed as a cosmetic surgery or a medically necessary surgery depending on your situation. If your eye lids are interfering with your ability to see well, your insurance may cover the cost of your eye lift surgery.
Achieve Success with your Surgery – It is important to have a good rapport with your cosmetic surgeon to obtain a successful plastic surgery outcome. You must be able to clearly communicate your desires to a surgeon who must then provide you with realistic expectations. Trusting your surgeon and having open and honest communication with him or her is paramount to achieving success with your eye lift cosmetic surgery.
Eye Lift Cosmetic Surgery Procedure – The surgery is an outpatient procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia. Surgery usually involves small incisions along the natural lines and creases of the upper and/or lower eyelids; excess skin, muscle tissue and fat are then removed. It is best to have the procedure performed by an experienced plastic surgeon to reduce the appearance of scarring.
After surgery, you will need to keep your head elevated for several days and wear an icepack on your eyes for the first two days. You may experience some minor bruising and swelling for a few days after surgery. To protect the delicate skin around your eyes, it is a good idea to protect your eyes from sun and wind irritation.
The Cost of Eye Lift Surgery – The cost of eye lift surgery varies throughout the country. How much you pay for eye lift surgery is largely based on extent of surgery. Additionally, if your procedure is strictly cosmetic, it will not be covered by insurance; but if your drooping eyelids are impairing your vision, blepharoplasty may be covered by your insurance.
