No matter how much sleep you try to get, or how much you follow a healthy lifestyle, you still feel as though you look constantly fatigued. Thanks to drooping eyelids and sagging brows, you look perpetually tired – and no amount of eye cream in the world can help you look like you’ve logged your eight hours.
If the above sounds familiar, it might be time to consider eyelid surgery. Also known as a blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can help address cosmetic issues associated with:
- Sagging eyelids
- Drooping eyebrows
- Excess fat on the lids
- Wrinkles and lines around the eyes
In some rare cases, eyelid surgery can even help with vision problems caused by excessive drooping.
What To Expect From Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is surprisingly simple, making it a great option for patients who might be concerned about sagging eyelids, drooping skin, excess fatty deposits around the eyes, and more. The end result is a smoother, more contoured eyelid appearance, as well as tighter skin around the eyes.
Eyelid surgery often involves making small incisions around the upper eyelid, which allows the plastic surgeon to remove fatty deposits and excess skin. The eyelids are then repositioned in such a way to address sagging, drooping, and wrinkling.
In some cases, eyelid surgery can even be performed in the office under local anesthesia.
How Much Does Eyelid Surgery Cost?
The cost of eyelid surgery often depends on multiple factors, including desired results. The average cost of eyelid surgery is around $3,000; this price does not include anesthesia, medication, and other related expenses.
Some patients may want to check with their health insurance providers to determine if their eyelid surgery could be covered by their policies.
