Blepharoplasty, or cosmetic eyelid surgery, is a facial cosmetic procedure used to correct issues with collagen depletion and the sagging, bulging or (drooping) look that develops around the eyes as you age. Eyelid rejuvenation surgery can turn back the clock 7-10 years, improving vision, puffy bags, crispness of the eyelid platform. The appearance of fine lines, crepe-like skin can be improved by adding a laser treatment.
The eyes are one of the facial features that personify an individual, and the skin around the eyes is more susceptible to signs of aging than any other part of the face. Whether you are seeking to combat the effects of heredity, stress, or are looking to turn back the biological clock, blepharoplasty may be your solution to a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
An Overview of Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty is a surgical eyelid procedure that rejuvenates and ‘uplifts” stretched, droopy, or weakened muscles around the eyelids. Excess skin, tissue, or fat from the upper or lower eyelids are surgically removed to give a more refreshed appearance and restore peripheral vision and performance.
The skin around the eyes is among the most delicate on the human body and requires the subtle and meticulous hand of a seasoned cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Sikorski seamlessly incorporates non-surgical, minimally invasive, and “minimal touch” techniques for blepharoplasty facial surgery to achieve beautiful, long-lasting results.
In an initial consultation, you and the doctor will agree on the aesthetics and procedures prior to your surgery to obtain the exact results you want. You may undergo a surgical or non-surgical facial cosmetic procedure, or in some cases, a combination of both. Dr. Sikorski may also recommend an eyebrow or facelift to produce enhanced results.
Benefits of Blepharoplasty
The key benefits of blepharoplasty include:
- Smoothens Wrinkles and Fine Line when combined with laser
- Tightens Skin Around the Eyes
- Reduction of Bags Under the Eyes
- Simpler Makeup Application
- Improved Vision
- Younger, Rejuvenated and Refreshed Appearance
- Short Recovery Time
- Compatible with Other Facial Procedures
Ideal Candidates for Blepharoplasty
The ideal candidates for blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery are women or men who have begun to show signs of aging in the eyelids or skin around the eyes. Candidates for eyelid surgery must be in good health and should have a comprehensive understanding of the procedure, including potential risks, benefits, and costs. A potential candidate must also maintain realistic expectations for the procedure, which can be discussed in a consultation with Dr. Sikorski.
Blepharoplasty surgery is perfect for those looking to correct:
- Drooping Upper Eyelids
- Lower Eyelid Bags
- Excessive Skin That Hangs or “Hoods” Over Eyelids
- Deep Grooves Under Eyelids
- Excess Lower Eyelid Skin or Bulging
- Tired or Fatigued Demeanor
What Are the Costs Related to Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a popular cosmetic surgery performed worldwide. Blepharoplasty procedures typically range from $3,000 to $4,500 for both upper eyelids and between $3,000 to $4,500 for both lower eyelids. Total price estimates include the surgeon’s fee, operating room fees, pre-op, and follow-up visits. A final cost is provided after a patient is fully evaluated to assess their respective eyelift surgery needs. Combining the lower eyelids and upper eyelids procedures at the same time can save downtime and expense.

During the procedure, Dr. Sikorski will mark the natural crease in your eyelid and remove excess skin around it with a thermal scalpel or a laser. Dr. Sikorski’s procedure will revise the eyelids to give them cleaner lines and a firmer appearance. Inconspicuous incisions are made on the natural crease of the eyelid, then dressed in small sutures. The incision will heal and fade over time, and results can remove years of aging, correct cosmetic concerns, and restore a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Compared to most cosmetic surgery procedures, eyelid rejuvenation surgery is relatively hassle-free. The procedure does not have to be done at a hospital or outpatient surgery center, and all blepharoplasty and eyelid rejuvenation surgeries are performed at Natural Image OC’s accredited office.
