Blepharoplasty by Dr. Marco Saucedo

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure we use to make your eyes and face look younger and less tired. Your eyes are the first part of your face that is seen in conversation. When your comfortable with your eyes and overall appearance, that expression of confidence is seen in your eyes.

Some people have extra skin on the upper eye lid as well as a fat pad. We remove one or both problems with upper blepharoplasty. For people with a prominent fat pad below the eye this makes them look very tired. Patients often have loose skin on the lower lid and corrections of this is called lower blepharoplasty. We also can combine these surgeries with acid peels that remove fine wrinkles from the face so people can recover from both at the same time and maximize the effect of the blepharoplasty. One of the techniques we use is to go through the inside of the eye to remove the lower fat pad in a procedure called Transconjuctival Blepharoplasty. I do this with local anesthesia and enter the fat pad through the inner eye lid. Because no sutures are placed and the incision is 3 mm, healing is quick. This surgery takes 60-90 minutes and is done with local anesthesia.

Upper blepharoplasty is $1750.00 and lower blepharoplasty is $1750.00. Both procedures are normally $ 2700.00 each so now is a good time to take advantage of pricing for the summer. We look forward to talking to you at your consultation.
