Eyelid Surgery Jacksonville
Another popular cosmetic surgery procedure that can produce dramatic results is eyelid surgery. Eyelid cosmetic surgery, offered at our Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach and Orange Park area practice, can produce dramatic results and age defying results. Your eyes are one of your most important features. Don’t let droopy, sagging, or puffy eyelid skin make you look tired or older than you really are.
What is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can dramatically improve the appearance of skin around your eyes, making you look well rested, refreshed, and more youthful. Eyelid surgery can also restore vision to some patients whose vision has been impaired by sagging eyelids.
Eyelid surgery is a surgical method of removing surplus skin, fat, and muscle from the eyelid. Our plastic surgeons at Coastal Cosmetic Center in Jacksonville first make an incision down the length of the eyelid, and then the unwanted skin, excess fat, and unnecessary muscle are removed. Lastly, the incision is stitched closed. Performed as an outpatient procedure under anesthesia to patients in the Jacksonville, Orange Park and Jacksonville Beach area, eyelid surgery takes about one to three hours. Side effects last about ten days after surgery and may include swelling, bruising, dry eyes, and light sensitivity.
Are There Any Eyelid Surgery Before and After Pictures I Can See?
During your consultation visit, your surgeon will show you before and after pictures of patients from Jacksonville, Orange Park and Jacksonville Beach who underwent an eyelid procedure. You will see firsthand the difference this procedure made for our patients and browsing through these photos will help you visualize what the procedure may do for you.
How Much Does Eyelid Surgery Cost at Coastal Cosmetic Center?
The cost of an eyelid procedure varies from patient to patient. During your consultation appointment with your surgeon at our Jacksonville office, the price of the procedure as it applies to you will be explained in detail.
Is there a better time of year to have the surgery performed?
You should schedule your surgery when you can allow yourself enough time to heal. Some swelling, bruising, dry eyes, and light sensitivity are typical after the procedure. Some activities that interfere with healing must be avoided during the early recovery period. Most patients return to work within ten days.
