Blepharoplasty in New Jersey

What is a Blepharoplasty?

A blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a procedure performed to rejuvenate the eyes by addressing sagging or drooping eyelids. Over time, both the upper and lower eyelids can begin to sag. This can result in a consistently angry or tired-looking appearance. Blepharoplasty surgery can remove excess fat and skin from the eyelids to create a more youthful appearance, leaving you with a refreshed look. Eyelid surgery can also be performed for ptosis repair, correcting the uncontrollable drooping of the eyelids.

How Much Does a Blepharoplasty Cost?

The average cost of blepharoplasty surgery starts at $2,800. The exact cost of treatment varies, depending on your unique treatment goals and the specific approach we take to treatment. During your initial consultation, we thoroughly discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the blepharoplasty technique that is best for you. Once we develop a customized treatment plan, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of treatment. You can learn more about the cost of your treatment and your payment options by visiting our financing page.

What is the Blepharoplasty Procedure Like?

The blepharoplasty procedure varies, depending on your treatment goals and the treatment plan we develop during your consultation. This treatment may be performed as an upper blepharoplasty, addressing only the upper eyelids, a lower blepharoplasty, addressing only the lower eyelids, or as a full blepharoplasty, addressing both upper and lower eyelids at once.

These treatments begin with delivering anesthesia, ensuring you remain safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. For the blepharoplasty procedure, incisions are made within the natural folds of the eyelids, minimizing any visible scarring. Excess skin and fat is removed and the remaining skin is tightened. After these steps are complete, the incisions are sealed and the treatment is complete.

What is the Blepharoplasty Recovery Like?

The recovery process for blepharoplasty varies, depending on the extent of treatment performed. Most patients experience swelling, bruising and discomfort for a few weeks after their treatment. You may also experience blurred vision or soreness in the eyelids during this time. You may need to take time away from work and other activities in order to rest and heal following your surgery.

What Results Can I Expect from a Blepharoplasty?

The results from your blepharoplasty surgery are visible soon after treatment, and will last for many years to come. However, a blepharoplasty cannot prevent changes in the eyes that might occur in the future due to the natural aging process. We encourage patients to maintain healthy lifestyle habits in order to make their results last as long as possible.
