Eyelid surgery, otherwise known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery that recreates the eyelid crease that has been lost or affected due to saggy skin, puffiness, or weakened muscles in the eyelid. Eyelid skin and muscles can lose their elasticity and strength naturally over the course of a person’s life, but they can be tightened and toned under the expert care of our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Grover.
You may consider eyelid surgery in Newport Beach if any of the following applies to you:
Patients who have undergone eyelid surgery report that their peripheral vision has improved, opening and closing their eyes has become easier, and they no longer strain to keep their eyes open. In addition, the puffiness or exhausted look is noticeably less pronounced – your face looks younger, more engaging, and refreshed. Custom blepharoplasty, when performed correctly, can be a significant way to rejuvenate your look.
First, the natural crease of the eyelid will be traced using a marker to identify exactly where to make the tiny incisions. As the incisions are placed in the eyelid’s natural crease, the site will be virtually unnoticeable after healing. The second step involves removing the excess skin giving your eyes a droopy, older appearance. The muscles will be accessible, and Dr. Grover can tighten structures that lie beneath. Lastly, the incision site will be expertly sutured. Within a few weeks, the eyelids will appear freshly rejuvenated!
Complete recovery from blepharoplasty can take anywhere between a month to a month and a half. This allows the surgery site enough time to heal and lose its post-surgery swelling and bruising.
Dr. Grover’s specialized eye for detail is expertly combined with his skills as a plastic surgeon. He prioritizes individual experiences over numbers, so that every patient under his care leaves his office completely satisfied about their surgical experiences. His academic career at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), University of California, San Diego (UCSD), and the Stanford University Medical Center created a foundation of excellence in surgery applied to patient he treats. Dr. Grover is a commendable figure within his field, and his patients express nothing but complete faith and gratitude when under his care.
There will be bruising and swelling at and near the incision site. However, these are temporary and are largely healed by the third week of your recovery period.
The precise number varies on a number of factors, but results can last anywhere between seven to fifteen years.
Lower eyelid surgery can resolve undereye bags. This customized surgery involves removing excess fat that has lodged beneath the eyes. The incisions are placed within the lower lid, and will be invisible once healed.
In some cases, health insurance covers the cost of eyelid surgery. If you struggle to see due to excess upper eyelid skin, it may be considered a health problem, rather than a cosmetic problem. Speak with our friendly administrative staff to get help with insurance questions and financing options.
Every patient will undergo a custom surgery when under the care of Dr. Sanjay Grover. The cost of surgery can vary, based upon the extent of corrections needed, whether upper lid, lower lid, or both, or if you need to address undereye bags, or the eyelid muscles have become loosened. A personal evaluation will help us give you an answer about your cost, but generally, your Orange County eyelid surgery may range from about $2,000 to $4,000.
