As individual age, the facial structure begins to change and one of the most noticeable of these changes is in the eyes. Excess fat and skin in the upper and/or lower eyelids can oftentimes cause men and women to appear tired, angry, or older than they are. In order to correct this unpleasant feature, you may wish to consider a cosmetic facial procedure such as eyelid surgery. A Palo Alto eyelid surgery professional can help you achieve your desired outcome.

The Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

Also known as "blepharoplasty," eyelid surgery is intended to remove excess skin, fat, and muscles from the upper and/or lower eyelids. This is done to reduce the amount of baggy skin underneath the eyes and/or sinking or drooping eyelids. Through this simple procedure, you will not only look younger, but potentially feel great too.

During your procedure, incisions are made in the natural crease of the upper eyelid and a crescent shaped area of skin, fat, and tissue is removed. Scarring is easily hidden by the natural folds of the eye. Lower eyelid surgery is performed through incision along the lash line or inside the eyelid. Fat and tissue are removed in order to reduce the appearance of bulging or “bags” under the eyes. Any scarring from this technique is also hidden inside the eyelid or in the natural creases. Patients may anticipate a more refreshed and youthful appearance after their eyelid surgery.

For optimal results, some patients choose to undergo an eyebrow lift in conjunction with eyelid surgery. A Palo Alto plastic surgeon can help you decide on the most beneficial procedure(s) to help meet your goals.

Eyelid Surgery Cost

The average cost of eyelid surgery in Palo Alto is $4,460. However, anesthesia and surgery center fees are not included in this cost. Medications prescribed before and after surgery can also influence the final cost of this procedure. A more accurate approximation of the total cost can be discussed during your visit with a qualified physician.
