The eyes are often the first area to begin developing signs of aging. At Newport Plastic Surgery, we perform blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) procedures for men looking to rejuvenate their appearance. We offer this and other men’s procedures under the guidance of Dr. Go, an experienced triple board-certified plastic surgeon in Costa Mesa, Irvine, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, and the nearby communities in CA.
What is a Blepharoplasty?
A blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, is a surgical technique used to eliminate excess fat and skin around the eyes and produce a more rejuvenated, youthful appearance. The blepharoplasty procedure can be performed on the upper eyelids or the lower eyelids. With upper eyelid surgery, we can address sagging eyelids that impair vision or cause a tired or angry appearance. Lower eyelid surgery can address excess skin and bags under the eyes. We understand that men have different aesthetic desires, and adjust our blepharoplasty treatment to meet these needs. We strive to rejuvenate the appearance while providing results that are natural-looking, and enhance the masculine features of the face instead of minimizing them.
How Much Does a Blepharoplasty Cost?
The cost of a blepharoplasty can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver a patient’s desired results. When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Go of Newport Plastic Surgery, he will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific cosmetic goals. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We also offer financing through CareCredit® to make this and other treatments more affordable.
What is the Blepharoplasty Procedure Like?
The blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) procedure is performed under local sedation or general anesthesia to ensure the safety and comfort of the patient. Whether you are having upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or both, incisions are made within the natural folds of the eyelids. This way, any scarring will be virtually invisible. Through the incisions, we will remove or redistribute fat to produce the desired results. Then, we will remove excess skin and tightening the remaining skin to complete the treatment.
At Newport Plastic Surgery, Dr. Go takes pride in making blepharoplasties one of his main areas of expertise that he enjoys doing. He has performed hundreds of these procedures over the years on both men and women, and is confident in achieving his patients’ goals in the safest and most effective manner possible.
How is Recovery After a Blepharoplasty?
After a blepharoplasty, it is important to rest the eyes as much as possible. In order to rest adequately, patients will have to take at least a week off of work and other activities. It is common to experience some bruising, swelling, and even blurred vision during this time. After the initial recovery period, patients still need to avoid weight lifting and other exercise activities for a few weeks.
