Your eyes are one of the first parts of your face to show signs of aging, such as wrinkles, saggy excess skin and displaced fat. The skin around your eyes is delicate, and the area is susceptible to stress and exposure to natural elements. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is intended to tighten up the skin and muscle of the eyelids and reduce the amount of excess fat, for an overall revitalizing effect on your facial appearance. Dr. Humberto Palladino, a distinguished plastic surgeon in El Paso, offers eyelid surgery for both the upper and lower lids. To learn more about this procedure and how it can make you look younger and more refreshed, please schedule a consultation at Southwest Plastic Surgery.
Am I a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery may be suitable for your needs if you have one or more of the following cosmetic concerns:
- Saggy skin of the upper eyelids
- Bags under the eyes
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Puffy upper eyelids
Eyelid surgery candidates should be in good physical and psychological health, with concrete goals for their surgery. Candidates should also be free of any medical conditions which could compromise their healing from eyelid surgery. Certain thyroid-related disorders, such as Grave’s disease, may preclude a candidate from qualifying for eyelid surgery.
The Procedure – What to Expect
Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure performed at an accredited surgical facility. Anesthesia and sedation medications are administered for your comfort. Dr. Palladino may perform upper and/or lower eyelid surgery, depending on the areas that need correction. After surgery, you will rest in the recovery suite for a short time while the staff monitors you, and then you will be released into the care of your companion to go home.
It’s common for the eyelids to be swollen and bruised after surgery, but these side effects will disappear with time. Temporary loss of sensation is also common. Dr. Palladino will meet with you several times after surgery to check your healing progress. You should be able to return to work rather quickly; although full resolution of swelling and bruising will take several weeks, makeup can conceal anything that worries you.
The average price for an Eyelid Surgery in El Paso, TX is between $2,000-$4,900. The cost varies depending on the type of anesthesia selected and the extent of lift needed.
