What to Know about Eyelid Surgery in Pennsylvania

Eyelid surgery is performed mostly for cosmetic reasons when, as the aging process accelerates, the eye takes on a fatigued appearance or begins to look puffy either on the upper or lower eyelid, or both. The fragile skin around the eye begins to stretch, fat accumulates. This consequence of growing older is most noticeably seen in women more than men. If you mention baggy eyes, there is almost no woman over the age of eighteen who cannot tell you what that means. The change in appearance in before and after photos of patients who have had eyelid surgery can be astonishing, taking years off of a person's face.

Eyelid surgery is an elective surgery; however, when loose or heavy skin impedes your field of vision, surgery is an effective treatment. The eyelid surgery performed to correct that unwanted, haggard, appearance, is known as blepharoplasty. The surgery does exactly what you would think, getting rid of excess skin and muscle, as well as getting rid of fat accumulations that result in those highly noticeable puffs of flesh above or below the eye. Eyelid surgery can be done on one eye or both and be done on both the upper and lower portion of the eyes, as well.

In Pennsylvania, as in most of the U.S., a patient may choose between several types of eyelid surgeries. Surgery performed on the lower eyelid is done to get rid of those puffy bags of accumulated fat and excess skin. Upper eyelid surgery is done to eliminate the hooding effect on eyes caused by heavy, loose, flesh. People who have heavy upper eyelids often appear angry or haggard, despite feeling the complete opposite. The recovery times for these surgeries vary from person to person but you can expect for the first 7 to 10 days that you will need to take it easy and that full recovery up to three weeks for swelling to completely go down.

Costs can be hard to pin down, in Pennsylvania, or just about in any town wherever you go, without making a call for a consultation. Most clinics or doctor's staff will not quote prices unless you do. In general, the cost of a good eyelid surgery will run in the area of $3,000, per eye, on average. Again, costs will vary on things like where in Pennsylvania you have your surgery, your surgeon's experience and fee, hospital or surgery center costs, anesthesia fee, prescription medications, and any other fees that may be needed. This surgery is not generally covered by insurance, so be sure to inquire about financing options.
