Newport Beach & Orange County, CA
Eyes are expressive and they tell much about how we feel. However, with the passing of time, as tissues and muscles lose elasticity, eyes can make us look older than we actually are. The technical term for eyelid surgery is blepharoplasty and it defines the procedure of fat removal, along with excess skin and muscle, from the upper or the lower eyelid. The relatively easy recovery makes eyelid surgery attractive for those who wish to gain a rejuvenated, youthful look.
- For drooping eyelid correction upper eyelid surgery is used, while puffy bags below the eyes have lower eyelid surgery as an efficient cure.
- Dr. Brennan might sometimes recommend you to combine eyelid surgery with brow lift or face lift in order to complete and improve the overall appearance of the face.
Our Newport Beach cosmetic surgeon is perfectly skilled to perform any of the eyelid plastic surgery procedures. He has performed over 3,000 eyelid procedures and is dedicated to help you obtain the results you wish for.
Blepharoplasty Procedure Costs in Orange County
Varying between $2,500 and $4,000, eyelid surgery cost largely depends on whether it is:
- performed on the upper or lower eyelid
- combined or not with another cosmetic surgery procedure
- done with local or general anesthesia
Other factors that influence eyelid plastic surgery price are the complexity level of the operation.
Eyelid Surgery Recovery Process
Eyelid surgery recovery is quick and permits patients to resume normal daily activity days after the operation, even after only one day in most cases. Most patients experience little to no discomfort, bruising, and swelling. Sutures are removed one day to a week after the operation. It is normal and temporary to experience tearing, sensitivity to light or slight blurring during the first days after surgery. It is advised to keep the head elevated for a couple of days and Dr. Brennan will instruct you on the correct use of compresses and eye drops.
