Eyelid Surgery Costs NJThe eye area is typically one of the first places to show signs of aging. If you have heavy, hooded upper eyelids; puffy, drooping lower lids; or a combination of these conditions, others may develop the impression that you’re always tired or stressed. In addition to cosmetic concerns, impaired vision may also occur in extreme cases. Fortunately, there is a treatment that can help. Commonly referred to as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty offers abundant aesthetic and functional benefits. Our double-board certified facial plastic surgeon, Eugenie Brunner, MD, performs this procedure at our state-of-the-art medical center.

Upper eyelid surgery, as the name suggests, focuses on the lids above the eyes. As a result of the natural aging process, family history, or a congenital effect, the upper eyelids may begin to form heavy folds that could eventually obstruct your eyesight. You may even feel the weight of the lids as your skin’s elasticity weakens and drooping worsens. During the procedure, Dr. Brunner will remove excess skin that causes these concerns through an almost imperceptible incision. As a result, your eyelids should feel lighter, and you should look more refreshed, youthful, and alert.

Lower eyelid surgery is designed to address the lower lids in a similar way. Many patients consider this procedure when puffiness and under-eye bags become a constant, rather than only occurring occasionally in the morning or after a long night. Lower blepharoplasty involves reducing excess skin as well as removing any excess fatty tissue that contributes to the swollen look. Dr. Brunner will utilize a small, nearly undetectable incision to optimize your outcome. As a result, the tired, stressed, or frustrated look that is often associated with puffy eyes can be significantly reduced.

Many individuals experience a sagging, aged, or tired appearance on both the upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty from our practice will be customized to suit your needs and goals. The procedure can address just the upper eyelids, just the lower eyelids, or both sets of eyelids simultaneously for the best possible result.
