Blepharoplasty is a form of cosmetic surgery that is used predominantly to enhance the appearance of the eyelids, restoring facial beauty and self-confidence to achieve a better quality of life. Dr. Tenley Lawton is a board-certified plastic surgeon that can complete the transformation to the very highest standards and has seen a growing number of patients in Newport Beach and the surrounding areas opt for this procedure over the past few years.
Also known as an eyelid lift, blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin and tissue around the eyelids. This is a common issue experienced by individuals as they get older, and the skin around the eyes begins to lose its elasticity.
It is a precise form of surgery that removes excess fat, skin, and muscle from the target area. It can be separated into two distinct categories, upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty, which relate to the upper and lower eyelid respectively. Patients can have the treatment on either eyelid or both, as well as a choice of a single eye or both eyes.
Blepharoplasty is a significant and life-changing procedure that can only be completed by an experienced and board-certified surgeon. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons states that the average cost for the treatment in the United States of America is $3,282 – although that figure typically only covers the surgery itself.
The total price will be determined by a range of factors, including but not limited to;
