When the face begins to age, it can be incredibly difficult to conceal changes in the eyes. A blepharoplasty can help alleviate the effect of aging on the eyes to create a rested, youthful appearance. Rosenthal Cosmetic Plastic Surgery and Dermatology offers this and other facial surgery services to the residents of Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, and Wellington, FL.
What is a Blepharoplasty?
A blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that addresses drooping eyelids and sagging skin around the eyes. You may choose to have a blepharoplasty to achieve a younger, more rested appearance, since sagging eyelids can often make one look angry or tired. In some cases, drooping eyelids can even interfere with your vision. In these cases, a blepharoplasty can also help restore your vision. A blepharoplasty can also be combined with a brow lift or a facelift to achieve more dramatic results.
How Much Does a Blepharoplasty Cost?
The cost of a blepharoplasty will vary based on your unique needs and treatment goals. During your consultation, we take many things into consideration to design a personalized treatment plan that will optimize your results and treatment experience. Once this treatment plan is determined, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your blepharoplasty procedure. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Can I Expect During the Blepharoplasty Procedure?
Before a blepharoplasty, we will use anesthesia to ensure that you remain safe and comfortable throughout the treatment. During the procedure, incisions are made inside the natural folds of the eyelids, where they are well-hidden. Through these incisions, excess skin and fat will be removed, producing the desired results. A blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, depending on the your treatment goals.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from a Blepharoplasty?
The results from a blepharoplasty can be subtle yet impactful, creating a more youthful appearance in the eyes and face. However, it can take a few weeks for any residual swelling to fade, revealing the full results of treatment. Blepharoplasty results are long-lasting, but they cannot prevent gradual changes from developing in the future due to the aging process. We encourage you to maintain a healthy lifestyle to make your results last as long as possible.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following a Blepharoplasty?
It can take several weeks to fully recover from a blepharoplasty. During the initial recovery period, it is not uncommon to experience blurred vision and mild swelling. It is important to give your eyes plenty of rest following the procedure to ensure that they heal properly. Dr. Rosenthal will inform you how to care for yourself as you heal, which may include important instructions regarding hygiene, diet, and daily activities.
