Upper Eyelid Surgery in Tampa is on the increase as more men and women learn about the benefits of this cosmetic surgery procedure. And the cost of upper eyelid surgery can be quite reasonable when considering the dramatic results that are possible. Upper Blepharoplasty (as upper eyelid surgery is known) is a way to reduce drooping eyelids to provide a younger and more alert appearance. It can help rejuvenate your entire face by making your eyes the focal point once again.
How does Upper Eyelid Surgery work?
Upper Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that removes fatty deposits that accumulate in the upper eyelid and tightens sagging skin tissue. This allows the eyes to appear larger and more noticeable. It will eliminate wrinkles and folds that form along the upper eyelid. In some cases, the eyelid surgery can improve vision by allowing the eyes to open fully. During the procedure, the plastic surgeon will make tiny incisions along the natural folds of each upper eyelid to allow for removal of skin and fat. Once completed, the surgeon will close the incisions to allow for healing to occur.
Is Upper Eyelid Surgery Worth the Cost?
Upper blepharoplasty can be a real blessing for those that suffer from droopy eyelids. Not only do sagging eyelids make you appear older, but can also obscure vision in more pronounced cases. When the upper eyelids sag, others can mistakenly think you are sick… or stoned. This is not the image most want to project. The surgery will enhance appearance by allowing the true beauty of the eyes to show again. According to Dr. Dominic Castellano of Elite Facial Plastic Surgery in Tampa, “Since the eyes are the primary focal point of the face, this surgery can make a real difference by opening up the eyes and reducing the puffiness of the upper eyelid.”
Understand the Costs of Upper Eyelid Surgery
The costs of the surgery will vary depending on several factors, but most patients that choose surgery feel it is a wise investment. In some cases, health insurance may cover the costs if the vision is affected but even without insurance the benefits of surgery outweigh the costs. When considering the cost of upper eyelid surgery, be careful to do your research before scheduling a procedure. Make sure you select a board-certified facial plastic surgeon with experience in the procedure and ask where the surgery will take place. All procedures should be done in an accredited medical facility for upmost safety, but the costs may vary if done in a hospital rather than a medical office. Find out if there will be extra costs for the operating suite and if anesthesia is included or billed separately. A reputable practice will readily share all the details of the procedure, costs and recovery with you prior to surgery.
