Am I a candidate for upper/lower eyelid blepharoplasty ?

Older, younger and in between individuals may be candidates for upper/lower eyelid blepharoplasty. Older people may be candidates secondary to normal and typical aging process while younger people may be candidates secondary to prominent lower eyelid bags due to hereditary factors. Even teenagers can be candidates if their upper eyelids posses more fat and a low or absent eyelid fold is present again secondary to hereditary factors and racial characteristics. Others may desire more deeply set eyes. Blepharoplasty can also improve upon eyelid asymmetries

Can the procedures be performed under local anesthesia?

Upper/lower eyelid blepharoplasty may be performed under local or general anesthesia. The patient can make the choice in conjunction  recommendations by Dr Stafford.

How long is recovery?

One may feel comfortable socializing in public after five to ten days. Up to six weeks will be required for 75%of the swelling to resolve. Up to a year could be required and for all bruising to resolve (primarily in more pigmented individuals) and incisions to fade.

When will I see the results?

Some will appreciate an improvement immediately while others may not be able to visualize beyond the normal bruising and swelling.

The vast majority will see an improvement by one week post surgery. Results will improve from there as swelling, bruising and inflammation subsides.

How long do the results last?

The effects of blepharoplasty last for many years. It is rare for lower lid blepharoplasty to be performed more than a single time. As a person ages, additional upper eyelid skin may need to be excised a second time but with the slowing of the aging process with a healthy lifestyle and non surgical aesthetic treatments such as lasers, fillers and microneedling, the eyelids may remain in a desirable position.

Will my insurance cover the procedure ?

Insurance will cover upper eyelid blepharoplasty if an obstruction of vision occurs.
