About Eyelid Surgery

Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Theodore T. Foley, performs eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to improve the appearance of the eyes. Advanced surgical techniques are utilized to remove excess skin and fat from either the upper or lower eyelid to create a more youthful and awake appearance. You may choose to have blepharoplasty to both the upper and lower eyelids at the same time, so Dr. Foley will discuss the best avenue for treatment during your consultation at Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania in Camp Hill, PA. Different techniques are used for upper and lower eyelid surgery, but both produce amazing results. Some patients may even find that their vision improves when excess skin folds are removed from their eyelids to expand their field of vision.

Best Candidates

Good candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who experience:

  • Bags or fat deposits under the eyes
  • Loose skin and wrinkles on the upper eyelid
  • Impaired vision due to hanging skin on the upper eyelid

What to Expect

Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. This procedure is most commonly used to treat excess, loose, and sagging skin around the eyes that can impair vision and make a patient look and feel uncomfortable. This procedure also corrects minor wrinkles and folds around the eyes to improve your appearance. During the procedure, the loose skin around the eye is removed along with any fat pockets through small incisions. For upper eyelid treatment, the removal of excess skin and fat can improve vision and correct the natural fold of the eye.

Other Considerations

Following eyelid surgery, patients should keep their heads elevated for the first several days. Bruising and swelling should be expected and may last up to 1 week. It also takes about this same amount of time for results to be noticeable. Patients should expect minimal scarring at incision points that will be almost invisible to the naked eye.

Awake and Alert Again

Eyelid surgery can help to improve your eyes by making you look more attractive and improving your vision. Many patients, both men and women, undergo blepharoplasty to rejuvenate their appearance and improve the physical ailments that come from loose, sagging skin around the eyes. For women, this loose skin can make putting on makeup a burden and may prevent them from achieving the look they desire. If you are considering eyelid surgery schedule a consultation at our office to begin the journey toward your rejuvenated youth.

Cost of Eyelid Surgery

The cost of Eyelid Surgery ranges on average from $1,500 to $4,480. If you are comparing prices between different plastic surgery practices, make sure you are comparing the fees which include all aspects of your upcoming surgery. These prices include the physician, anesthesia, and facility fees assuming that your surgery is being completed in a surgery center. If your surgery needs to be performed at the hospital, the fees will be ~$1500-$2000 more depending on the procedure, the surgical time, and whether or not you choose to stay overnight at the hospital. Also, your best choice for a cosmetic procedure of any kind is to choose a plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Theodore Foley, who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who is local to you. Not only will you receive the best surgical care that way, but you will also receive the best postoperative care.
