 Are you tired of always looking tired? Let Dr. Emily Pollard brighten your look with blepharoplasty. Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia, Pollard Plastic Surgery offers blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, to patients who wish to get rid of their sagging, puffy eyelids.

Blepharoplasty Procedure

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, uses the latest technology to reduce the excess muscle, fat, and skin around the eye to correct drooping upper eyelids or puffy lower eyelids. The first step in your eyelid surgery procedure, or blepharoplasty, is to meet with Dr. Pollard so that she can examine your eyelids and propose the best possible solution. She may discuss several factors with you, such as puffiness, loose skin, and fatty deposits. During your consultation, share with Dr. Pollard any other eye problems that you are experiencing, such as irritation that may be caused by skin rubbing against your eyelashes.

After examining your eyes, Dr. Pollard may recommend upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or both. Upper eyelid surgery is recommended for patients who have excess skin and fat above their eyes. Pouches beneath your eyes, puffiness, and a lumpy appearance are some of the cosmetic concerns that are addressed by lower eyelid surgery.

How Much Does Blepharoplasty Cost in Philadelphia, PA?

What are the Benefits of Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery not only makes you look better, but the procedure can also help you feel less tired while reading and watching television. The weight of your upper eyelids can fatigue your eye muscles, and you may not have even noticed how much energy you exert to keep your eyes open. Eyelid surgery is not intended to reduce certain signs of aging, such as crow’s feet and other wrinkles around your eyes. The procedure will not address dark circles or restore your brow area. Dr. Pollard may recommend eyelid surgery in conjunction with a brow lift, facelift, and skin rejuvenation.

Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

During your consultation, you and Dr. Pollard determine if eyelid surgery is right for you. She describes the technique that suits your case, including the type of anesthesia that is required. Ideal candidates for blepharoplasty are in good general health and wish to refresh the look of their saggy, puffy eyes.
