Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty, also called eyelid surgery, offers you the opportunity to turn back time for a refreshed, more youthful appearance.

Men and women alike take advantage of this outpatient treatment that rejuvenates sagging, tired-looking eyelids that make you look older.

Dr. Jaime Perez at Plastic Surgery Center of Tampa pairs advanced techniques with an artistic eye for a natural, revived look.

Treatment Tailored to Each Patient

Dr. Perez, who has been practicing since 2000, brings more than rote training and high-tech tools to his cosmetic surgery patients in Tampa, FL. He also brings years of hands-on experience. Those years have allowed him to refine his technique so that it can be tailored to each patient's unique needs. As Dr. Perez explains, "Each patient that walks into my office has a different anatomy, different needs, and different goals; this must all be taken into consideration when deciding upon and executing a surgical plan."

Flexible Financing

If the drooping around your eyes impairs your vision, insurance may cover a blepharoplasty. However, if you are seeking eyelid surgery for cosmetic reasons, you will need to pay for the procedure yourself. For patients who are paying out of pocket, we can help make the costs more manageable with flexible financing through CareCredit® or Prosper Healthcare Lending.

An Artistic Eye

While technical expertise is a necessity in plastic surgery to achieve results that are both appealing and natural-looking, top-tier surgeons also need to have a profound understanding of aesthetics and human anatomy. As Dr. Perez says: "If you don't have a clear picture of what beauty is, it's very difficult to make beauty."

Types of Eyelid Surgeries

Traditional eyelid lifts focused on radical removal of skin and fat, which often left patients with a haggard, aged appearance. Dr. Perez, who practices only the most advanced techniques in blepharoplasty, takes a refined approach. He focuses on the conservative reduction of skin around the eye, repositioning fat rather than performing complete removal, and tightening the lower eyelid muscles. His meticulous approach includes ensuring the edge of each eyelid (the eyelid margin) retains its proper position. Depending on your goals, Dr. Perez can treat the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both.

Upper Lid

When muscles weaken and skin loses elasticity, the upper eyelid starts to sag. In some cases, the sagging can even impair your vision. To correct the problem, Dr. Perez removes excess skin, muscle, and sometimes extra fat in the upper lid. The incision is carefully hidden in the natural crease of the upper eyelid. Dr. Perez' years of experience and his artistic touch leave his patients looking rested and younger, not "done" or "pulled."

Lower Lid

Excessive sagging and bags under the eyes can be addressed with lower eyelid surgery. The procedure involves removing or repositioning excess fat, muscles, and sagging tissue. The incision is hidden in the natural creases just below the lashes or inside the lower eyelid.

How Much Does Eyelid
Surgery Cost?

Eyelid surgery at Plastic Surgery Center of Tampa typically costs around $4,000 for the upper eyelid and about $7,000 for the lower eyelid. Of course, each patient is unique. To get a quote that more accurately reflects your needs, please request a consultation.

Blepharoplasty Is Usually an Outpatient Procedure

Depending on the complexity, eyelid surgery usually takes approximately one to two hours to complete and is performed in an outpatient setting, meaning the patient goes home the same day. An eyelid lift can usually be performed under local anesthesia with the patient awake, or with light intravenous sedation. Unless other procedures are performed at the same time, most patients undergoing eyelid surgery do not need to be intubated or put under general anesthesia.

Upper and lower eyelid surgery can be performed at the same time so patients just need one recovery period.

Recovery from an eyelid lift is fairly straightforward. Many patients will experience bruising and swelling for up to a week. After a week, the majority of swelling and bruising will have subsided enough for the patient to be "public-ready."
