Eyelid Lift at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre
You may be a candidate for an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) if you have excessive, sagging, or wrinkled upper or lower eyelid skin. An eyelid lift can also be helpful if you have excess upper eyelid skin that interferes with vision or if you have lost your natural upper eyelid crease. An eyelid lift may also be indicated if you have puffy pouches of fat in the upper or lower lids that create a tired or aged appearance. The eyelid lift procedure is intended to produce a more youthful and rested appearance of the eyes. The procedure may also widen your visual fields if excessive upper lid skin has partially blocked vision.
An eyelid lift can range from $3,800–$4,300 (upper or lower). Both upper and lower eyelid lifts range from $6,000–$6,500. Apply for financing now!
The Eyelid Lift Procedure
Blepharoplasty is done on an outpatient basis under sedation and local or general anesthesia. The incisions are made where the natural crease should be in the upper lids and below the lash line in the lower lids. Excess fat and skin are removed. If only excess fat is present in the lower lids, it may be removed through an incision inside the lower lids with no external incision or scar (transconjunctival blepharoplasty).
In either case, preoperative planning with your plastic surgeon will have determined how the surgery will be performed. Imaging will be performed at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre in order that you can actually “see” what the result would look like with more or less correction.
