Eyelid surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty, can be a game changer in the fight against visible signs of aging. The procedure opens the eyes and can smooth bags under the eyes creating a youthful and firm appearance around the eyes, a major point of focus on the face. The procedure is recommended and produces dramatic results for patients who have excess skin or bags around the eyes. When considering Blepharoplasty, it is important to work with an expert surgeon who has extensive experience in this specific procedure. Dr. John Burroughs at Springs Aesthetics Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa, has performed over 10,000 eyelid procedures, and specializes in oculofacial plastic surgery. He and his team can confidently guide you through what to expect and deliver the results that you are looking for with ease, making your experience smooth and stress-free.

What is Blepharoplasty?

As we age, a complex series of changes takes place in the tissue around the eye. Skin becomes thinner and less elastic, fat may protrude or atrophy, and even the bone can resorb and change lending less support for the soft tissues. Many of these changes can be improved or corrected surgically.

Blepharoplasty (or eyelid surgery) lifts excess skin off the upper eyelids to help restore a platform and smooths the tissues of the lower eyelids. It improves the appearance of aging around the eyes. In the upper lids, the procedure removes excess skin in virtually all cases. Depending on the individual anatomy, fat and muscle may also be addressed. The lower lids may be full and/or there may be skin laxity, both of which would be corrected surgically.

Blepharoplasty Before and After

Blepharoplasties and related eyelid surgeries are among the most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedures and may involve removing, reshaping, restoring, and repositioning of the eyelid skin and underlying tissue.

Is Blepharoplasty safe?

When performed by an expert surgeon with experience, Blepharoplasty is a very safe procedure, and will give you years of improved confidence in your appearance.

Dr. John Burroughs has taught blepharoplasty surgical techniques to other surgeons, and is published in surgical textbooks and journals on the proper evaluation, technique, and care of blepharoplasty patients. Prior to his extensive 2-year fellowship subspecialty training in eyelid, orbital, and facial plastic surgery, he was an eye surgeon. Therefore, he has extensive skill and experience to minimize risks and provide safe surgical treatments around the eyes. Oculoplastic surgeons have microsurgical skills and precision not required of surgeons in all other specialties. Dr. Burroughs’ expertise and experience places him amongst the safest and a top choice among Blepharoplasty surgeons. He has developed several techniques to not only improve the results, but to speed healing and make the surgery as comfortable and safe as possible.

How Much Does Blepharoplasty Cost?

Costs are determined on a patient-by-patient basis depending on the type of approach needed, and whether insurance will cover a portion of the cost. Most patients don’t want to wait for their eyelids to droop so significantly that it impairs vision. Dr. Burroughs’ team can discuss your payment options either before or during your consultation.
