Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid Surgery Blepharoplasty HoustonEyelid surgery is a procedure that can improve the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids. It is also known as blepharoplasty. This procedure can correct a variety of conditions. It can remove excess skin from the upper or lower eyelids. It can also remove bags from underneath them. Additionally, this procedure can correct droopy eyelids and take away the “tired look” that ageing eyes can develop.

Ideal Candidate For Eyelid Surgery

The ideal candidate for an eyelid surgery is someone who is healthy and does not smoke. Illnesses and smoking can slow down the healing process. It is also important to note that eyelid surgery is not intended for people who have serious vision problems, thyroid eye disease or severe allergies. Furthermore, people who are interested in getting this procedure should have realistic expectations. People should not get this done to live up to someone else’s expectations.

Eyelid Surgery Cost

The cost of it can vary greatly. The surgeon, type of procedure used and the geographic location are some of the factors that influence the cost. The surgeon’s fee, anesthesia fee, medical tests, surgical facility or hospital costs and prescription medications may be included in the cost. Keep in mind that the eyelid procedure probably will not be covered by health insurance. However, an insurance company may pay for this procedure if it is performed to remove sagging eyelid skin that is interfering with one’s vision (this would need and require an exam by an ophthalmologist).

Possible Risks of Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty is safe, but it is important to remember that it does have risks. Unfavorable scarring, infection, blood clots, fluid accumulation and numbness are some of the potential risks. The most significant risk of lower lid procedure is lid mal-position, which can be avoided in patient at high risk by performing a lid tightening procedure at the same time, known as a canthopexy.
