What is Eyelid Surgery?
Your eyes are a unique component of your face that deserves to be shown; however, hanging skin on top or around the eyes can create a tired and unflattering look for many Atlanta, GA men and women. Plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang performs eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) to reduce excess skin and rejuvenate your upper or lower eyelids, creating a softer look, which can even sometimes lead to improved function and appearance. Whether upper or lower, eyelid surgery creates a fresh, youthful appearance and can produce natural yet striking improvements. If you are interested in rejuvenating your eyes with eyelid lift surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Mang at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Duluth, GA.

Can I Get Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery is a facial cosmetic enhancement that many men and women in Atlanta, GA benefit from. During your private consultation, Dr. Mang will discuss different treatment options with you based on your areas of concern that need to be addressed. You are likely an ideal candidate if you are frustrated with excess, sagging skin and folds on your upper eyelid, or bulging skin below your bottom eyelid. These irregularities can cause functional and vision difficulties that can hinder normal, everyday activities. For a more awake facial appearance, blepharoplasty may be the right treatment for you.
How is Eyelid Surgery Performed?
Depending on the complexity of your eyelid surgery, general anesthesia or IV sedation will be provided for your maximum comfort. Based on your specific needs, this procedure can be done on the upper eyelid, the lower eyelid, or a blend of both.
Upper blepharoplasty addresses the folds of skin that droop over the eye to give our patients a more awakened and appealing look. An incision is usually made along the lash line or crease to trim away skin and tissue.
Eyelid surgery on the lower lid is performed to reduce puffy and bulging skin underneath the lower eyelid. In most cases, an incision is placed along the lash line to surgically remove tissue and fat. The skin will be subtly lifted to allow for a smoother look. In some cases, a nonsurgical laser treatment may be performed to help with discoloration while injectable fillers can be used for additional smoothness if needed.
What Can I Expect After My Eyelid Surgery?
Your outpatient eyelid surgery could last up to two hours, depending on whether one or both eyes are treated. You should plan about a week to recover and rest at home. Using a cold compress can help reduce swelling, bruising, and discomfort. The outcomes from your eyelid surgery can last years, but while your results are long-lasting, it's important to remember that the aging process does not stop. To complement your surgical outcomes, facial rejuvenation treatments are available at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery.
Eyelid Surgery FAQ
How much does eyelid surgery cost?
Cosmetic eyelid surgery costs will vary based on whether you're having an upper eyelid lift, lower, or both. Once your surgical plan is decided during your consultation, Dr. Mang can talk to you about cost estimates. To get natural-looking results that last a long time, it is better to focus on choosing a skilled plastic surgeon who you trust, like Dr. Mang, rather than trying to find the lowest cost. To make it easy for you to afford great results, Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery takes several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing.
Can I use insurance to pay for my eyelid surgery?
When loose skin is affecting your vision, your insurance might cover some of your eyelid lift. Please talk to Dr. Mang in your consultation if you may be applying for an insurance claim. Someone at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery will help you submit the needed paperwork and information for your provider to consider your claim. Typically, you will need a letter from an ophthalmologist or optometrist that blepharoplasty is medically necessary to improve your vision.
What are some other benefits of an eyelid lift?
Eyelid surgery not only helps to rejuvenate your appearance, but it can also give you other benefits. You may find your vision field is greater when excess skin on your upper eyelid is gone. It is also much easier to put on eye shadow and other makeup when your upper eyelid is smooth. Getting rid of fine lines, "crepey" skin, dark circles, and puffy bags on your lower eyelid can help your eyes appear fuller and brighter without cosmetics.
Will an eyelid lift fix wrinkles and Crow's feet?
Crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles might be better addressed with a facelift or brow lift since the improvements of blepharoplasty are limited to the upper or lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty may also be performed with a nonsurgical procedure such as BOTOX®, which can smooth wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead. Wrinkle fillers, like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane, can also be effective because it adds volume for a softer, smoother appearance. In your initial consultation, Dr. Mang will develop your custom treatment plan based on your needs and goals.
What about nonsurgical treatments instead of eye surgery?
Nonsurgical skin tightening and injectable wrinkle treatments ( like JUVÉDERM, Restylane®, and BOTOX ) can give you mild improvements. Although, if you have moderate to severe sagging skin or want long-lasting results, an eyelid lift is better than a nonsurgical treatment. When you tell Dr. Mang about your concerns and goals for your eyes, he will give you his suggestions for your nonsurgical or surgical treatment plan. She might also suggest both nonsurgical and surgical procedures for ideal results.
