Eyelid Surgery and Forehead Lift
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Upper Eyelid Surgery
The eyes are often the first part of the face to show significant signs of aging, such as sagging or drooping lids, bagginess, or puffiness. Blepharoplasty, also known as Eyelid surgery, can address these signs of aging by trimming sagging skin and removing or re-positioning fat deposits. A Blepharoplasty can create dramatic, yet natural appearing results that provide significant improvement in terms of looking more rested and youthful.
Fat deposits and sagging skin of the upper eyelids can sometimes interfere with vision. Many insurance companies will cover the costs of correcting the loss of vision due to overhanging upper eyelid skin. Your insurance company may require a Visual Fields test performed by your Optometrist or Ophthalmologist. Our staff will be happy to assist you in determining your insurance plan benefits.
Brow lifts can improve wrinkled foreheads and correct eyebrows that hang too low and close to the eyes, creating a more youthful, rested appearance to the forehead and eye area, and smoothing out deep forehead wrinkles. They’re like a facelift for the upper third of the face.
A brow lift is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. There are several options for incision size and placement, depending on your hairline and amount of lift needed. Dr. Kenna or Dr. Buckius will explain which method is best for your particular situation during your consultation.
In Office Procedures
Upper Eyelid Surgery
Many patients seeking an upper eyelid lift are pleasantly surprised to hear that they can undergo the procedure in an office setting under local anesthetic. An in-office Upper Eyelid lift depends on our Provider’s recommendation as well as the patient’s personal level of comfort regarding location of surgery. Having the procedure done under local anesthetic in the office does significantly reduce total cost as there are no anesthesia & facility charges involved.
In-office Eyelid procedures are generally completed within an hour. Most patients return to work within a week to 10 days. Scarring is minimal and typically fades within a few months of the surgery.
