Blepharoplasty

What is Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Surgery?

Are drooping eyelids, puffy eye bags, or dark circles under your eyes causing you to not like your reflection in the mirror? An eyelid lift procedure, or blepharoplasty, improves the appearance of your eyelids. Blepharoplasty removes or tightens sagging skin around the eyes, correcting defects, deformities, and disfigurations. If the appearance of your eyes bothers you, eyelid surgery can help to restore a youthful look to your eyes.

How Much Does Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Surgery Cost?

Every patient has unique blepharoplasty needs. As a result, your costs, which will be discussed during your consultation, will vary from patient to patient. We accept all forms of payment, including credit cards and checks, and also offer convenient financing options.
