Eyelid Surgery Eyelid Surgery in San Ramon, CA

Eyelid surgery—also known as the eye lift or blepharoplasty—is a surgical procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the eyelids. This is done by getting rid of excess skin from the upper eyelids and decreasing bagginess from the lower eyelids. Getting eyelid surgery in San Ramon can help bring back life to tired-looking, aging eyes.

What Is Eyelid Surgery?

One of the most common procedures performed, rejuvenating the eyelids can make a person look years younger and more rested without any visible scars. Loose skin of the upper and lower eyelids can make you look tired and sad when you are not. This procedure removes the loose skin and excess fatty tissue around the eyes but doesn’t change the shape of the eye. The incision is hidden in the natural crease of the upper eyelid or on the lash line of the lower eyelid. Younger patients with puffy lower eyelids and no loose skin can have an incision hidden inside the lower eyelid.

The majority of the procedures can be performed in the office with light sedation and approximately one to two weeks of downtime, depending on how much bruising there is. The result is a youthful more rested appearance without looking different or artificial. Eyelid lifts are performed on both men and women and the result is very natural. Removing the excess skin can even assist in vision and make the eyes less tired by the end of the day without having the weight of the skin on the eyelids.

Is Eyelid Surgery Right for Me?

You are an ideal candidate for eyelid surgery if you:

  • Are physically healthy with no medical conditions that can impede healing
  • Are a non-smoker
  • Have no serious eye conditions
  • Have a positive outlook and realistic goals

Your Eyelid Surgery Consultation

Some of the factors to be discussed with Dr. Place during your consultation include:

  • Your surgical goals
  • Medical history and drug allergies
  • Past medical treatments and surgeries (especially eye-related ones)
  • Current prescription medications
  • Surgery options
  • Course of treatment
  • Possible outcomes of the surgery and any potential complications
  • The type of anesthesia to be used

Dr. Place will thoroughly evaluate your facial anatomy to determine which procedures might best remedy your unique concerns. She will then discuss your options with you in greater detail.

What Is Eyelid Surgery Like?

General anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation will be administered depending on the extent of your eyelid surgery.

The surgical techniques chosen for your eye lift will be based on your facial anatomy and the changes needed to achieve your goals. Upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or both may be performed.

Eyelid surgery is conducted as an outpatient procedure and typically lasts from 45 minutes to 2 hours. Once the tissues have been altered as needed, incisions will be closed with fine sutures.

The Recovery Process

During the first week or two following your eyelid surgery, you may experience some visible bruising and swelling, and your eyelids may feel unusually tight.

Using cold compresses may help in alleviating any pain or soreness, and sleeping with your head elevated can decrease swelling and discomfort.

How Much Does Eyelid Surgery Cost?

Most health insurance does not cover the cost of eyelid surgery. The full price may vary according to:

  • Surgeon’s fee
  • Hospital or surgical facility costs
  • Anesthesia fees
  • Prescriptions for medication
  • Medical tests
