Upper eyelid surgery is a surgical rejuvenation procedure designed to reverse unwelcome and unappealing alterations to the eyes stemming from the natural aging process and frequent exposure to the sun’s UV energy and harmful environmental pollutants. Unfortunately, even with sun protection and an excellent skin care routine, changes to the upper eyelid such as upper eyelid ptosis (drooping) and “hooding” (dermatochalasis) may become noticeable as early as your 40s. These changes will often undermine an otherwise fresh, youthful, and vibrant appearance and in the worst cases can actually lead to medical problems, including loss of peripheral vision, vision problems, and fatigue and headaches caused by the lifting of the brows to improve the field of vision.
If you are concerned about specific aesthetic changes to the delicate skin around the eyes, or are just concerned that you don’t look as youthful and vigorous as you once did, upper eyelid surgery (also called an upper blepharoplasty or an upper eyelid lift) may be for you! When performed by skilled and highly-trained oculofacial and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir in Beverly Hills, CA, upper eyelid surgery can make subtle yet highly-effective corrections to the upper eyelids that will re-invigorate and rejuvenate your entire face. Dr. Steinsapir is a world-renowned, double Board Certified expert in eye surgery and cosmetic surgery. He is known for his innovative, less aggressive surgical techniques designed to deliver dramatic results while maintaining the delicate structures of the eye.
If you are interested in upper eyelid surgery and believe you may be a good candidate, we encourage you to start by scheduling an individual consultation with Dr. Steinsapir. During this meeting with Dr. Steinsapir, he will work closely with you to discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals, conduct a thorough medical examination to determine the root cause(s) of your specific concerns, and provide details on the surgical (and/or non-surgical) options most appropriate to achieve your unique goals. Once you and Dr. Steinsapir together have worked out the details of your customized treatment plan, we will provide a detailed cost estimate that will cover all anticipated costs of your surgery (excluding unexpected complications which are a possibility during any surgical procedure) and enable you to understand exactly what you are getting for your money!
While we understand that cost is an important factor, we urge you not to begin your cosmetic surgery journey with an inquiry about the price tag. Cost estimates provided through an Internet search or based only on a photo or description of your problem (instead of an in-person visit) are likely based on a “cookie-cutter” surgical plan, instead of one that is formulated on your unique anatomical structures and aesthetic goals. The end result is likely to be either (1) a disappointing surgical outcome, and/or (2) more expensive than the original estimate. Obtaining a quote based on an in-person consultation with Dr. Steinsapir and a custom-tailored surgical plan is the best bet for avoiding unwelcome surprises in both your appearance and your wallet!
When you come to Dr. Steinsapir about concerns over your appearance, you can feel comfortable knowing that the quote we provide you is honest, truthful, and complete, and that our goal is to ensure naturally-beautiful, age-defying eye rejuvenation that will keep you looking young and gorgeous for years to come. We look forward to hearing from you today!
