How Does Eyelid Surgery Help?

Over time, the skin of the upper and lower eyelids thins and sags creating an impression of fatigue. In addition, the fatty tissue that surrounds and supports the eye begins to bulge over time, creating a puffy, tired, or angry appearance. Eyelid surgery—also called blepharoplasty—can correct these concerns. While this procedure can also make improvements in the fine wrinkles on the lower lids and “crow’s feet” on the side of the eye, it cannot eradicate them completely. Laser resurfacing can be used to further smooth out these wrinkles. Sometimes, sagging skin hangs down onto the lashes and obstructs vision. Repairing this extreme condition is considered a medical necessity and may be covered by insurance.

How Much Does Eyelid Surgery Cost in the Washington, DC, Metro Area?

How Is Eyelid Surgery Performed?

During blepharoplasty, surgeons remove excess skin, muscle, and protruding fat. The resulting scar on the upper eyelid usually is hidden in the crease formed when the eyelid opens. The extension of the scar to the side is also hidden. In some cases, a brow lift is also performed to raise sagging eyebrows and open the upper eye area further.

Two approaches are used on the lower lid. One involves making the incision just under the lower lashes leaving an inconspicuous scar. Another approach is called transconjunctival blepharoplasty. This procedure is limited to the removal of excess fat only. The incisions are made on the inside of the lower lid preventing any external scar. Laser resurfacing is ideal for smoothing out any remaining fine wrinkles in the lower eyelid and “crow’s feet” area.

How Long is Recovery After Eyelid Surgery?

After surgery, the eyelids will be bruised and swollen. If both upper and lower lid procedures are performed at the same time, it may be difficult to see until some of the swelling dissipates in 2 or 3 days. Permanent alterations in visual acuity are extremely rare. Some patients may have difficulty closing their eyes completely or may notice changes in their lower lid position, but these problems are usually temporary. Sutures will be removed within three to five days after surgery and you may shower then. In general, patients may resume light exercise one week after surgery and include more strenuous exercise two weeks after surgery. Bruising generally disappears within 10 to 14 days after blepharoplasty.
