Eyelid Surgery

The eyes are one of the most important features when revealing to others how we genuinely feel and appear. Naturally, as we mature, the area surrounding the eyes begins to display noticeable signs of aging. The skin loses its elasticity and starts to droop, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, the eyes may get puffy and result in what people call “bags under the eyes.” These facial aging changes, particularly around the eyes, can cause individuals to appear fatigued or unhappy and make them feel self-conscious about how they look. Eyelid surgery is a procedure designed to address these specific aging changes. Dr. Alexander’s technique of eyelid surgery is designed to produce beautiful, natural-looking rejuvenation to the eye area with world-class results. Award-winning Dr. George Alexander, MD, FACS, performs eyelid surgery to restore a more youthful aesthetic to the eyes, which helps patients feel more confident about their appearance.

Most patients can return to work one week after eyelid surgery, but they should avoid strenuous activities and exercise for at least four to six weeks. Following all aftercare instructions provided by Dr. Alexander can ensure a speedy recovery and the best possible results.

The incisions created during eyelid surgery are small and carefully placed so that with normal healing they are virtually unnoticeable. While there is a minimal risk of developing visible scarring, most scars tend to fade over time.

Dr. Alexander has over two decades of award-winning experience as well as multiple board certifications, making him highly qualified to perform eyelid surgery. While price should be a factor in your decision to undergo any procedure, quality and surgical expertise must also be considered. The cost of eyelid surgery varies depending on the techniques used, anesthesia fees, and the extent of correction. An accurate cost estimate will be calculated for you during your initial eyelid surgery consultation.

Most eyelid surgery patients experience mild discomfort following their procedure. Bruising, swelling, and irritation are also common side effects, all of which can be managed with prescription pain medication and cold compress application.
