What is Blepharoplasty?

The eyes are a beautiful feature of the face; however, excess skin above or below the eyes can create an unflattering look. At New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana, Dr. Michelle Eagan offers blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery to remove skin and lift the upper or lower eyelid. Many men and women undergo eyelid surgery to eliminate saggy eyelids, which improves functionality and enhances the complexion. Eyelid surgery creates a softer, younger-looking appearance and it provides natural yet striking improvements. If you want to rejuvenate your eyes with eyelid lift surgery, please contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Eagan at her office in New Orleans, LA.

Is Eyelid Lift Surgery For You?

Upper or lower blepharoplasty works well for both men and women. During your initial consultation, Dr. Eagan will carefully listen to your goals and provide information about specific treatment options. Often, ideal candidates for eyelid surgery have saggy skin and folds on the upper eyelid or puffy skin underneath the bottom eyelid. Additionally, excess skin may cause vision impairments. For a more awake look and to improve your vision, blepharoplasty can help you see and look your best. If you struggle with excess skin on the upper eyelid or puffy bags under the eyes, blepharoplasty can treat these issues.

Surgical Technique

At the beginning of your eyelid surgery, we will administer anesthesia to help you remain comfortable. We can perform this procedure on the upper eyelid(s), under or on the bottom eyelid(s), or a combination of both.

  • Upper
    To produce a more appealing eyelid appearance, upper eyelid surgery removes saggy skin, which droops over the eye. An incision is usually made along the natural crease to excise tissue and fat.
  • Lower
    Lower eyelid surgery is performed to reduce puffy and bulging skin underneath the lower eyelid. In most cases, an incision is carefully made below the lash line to surgically remove fatty tissue, and the skin is gently lifted to create a flatter, smoother look. Sometimes, we can use a nonsurgical procedure to reduce the issue.

What to Expect

Depending on if we treat one or both eyelids, an eyelid lift surgery can last for two hours. After carefully monitoring you for a little bit, we will send you home to recover. To help with healing, our group will provide detailed aftercare instructions, such as using cold compresses to reduce bruising and swelling. Your results should last for many years. However, because the aging process does not stop, you may still require other nonsurgical treatments.

How much does eyelid surgery cost?

The cost of eyelid surgery depends on if you get a lower eyelid lift, upper, or both. After creating your treatment plan, Dr. Eagan can discuss your estimated costs. To attain results that look natural and last for many years, we recommend selecting a skilled doctor over the costs. At New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana, we offer a variety of payment options, including low-interest medical financing.
