What is eyelid surgery?

Dr Ben Cilento describes eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, as a surgical procedure that is performed on the upper, lower, or both lids of the eyes. It can be used to address bags under the eyes, excess skin in the eye area, and to improve deformities or defects in the eye area. When performed, the doctor will ensure balance and aesthetic enhancement with proper surgical techniques.

Who is a candidate for eyelid surgery?

Most adult patients who are interested in improving the appearance of their upper or lower eyelid are welcome to book a consultation visit with the team at Cilento Facial Plastics to determine if they can benefit from this or other facial surgery procedures.

When should I consider eyelid surgery?

An adult patient may consider eyelid surgery when they want to make a permanent enhancement to their facial area. Patients may utilize certain injectables such as those designed for crow’s feet for improvements. However, it may reach a point where the sagging and fine line formation is too severe for improvement with injectables alone. This is when many men and women start considering surgical solutions instead.

How much does blepharoplasty cost?

In most situations, this surgical procedure is relatively affordable for patients considering treatment. There is no single price quoted for blepharoplasty as there are many different aspects and factors that need to be taken into consideration when giving a patient a realistic price. It is best for patients to schedule a consultation visit and initial evaluation with our provider to get a more accurate representation of the final costs associated with blepharoplasty procedures.
