Upper Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid surgery is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to reverse unwelcome changes to the eyes caused by the natural aging process and daily exposure to dangerous UV energy and toxic environmental pollutants. Damage to the upper eyelid, including upper eyelid ptosis (drooping) and “hooding” (dermatochalasis), can become noticeable even as early as the late 30s or early 40s, and can significantly undermine your fresh, youthful, vibrant appearance. In the worst cases, these symptoms can also cause medical problems such as loss of peripheral vision, vision problems due to insufficient light entering the eye, and headaches, fatigue, and wrinkles caused by continual lifting of the brows to improve the field of vision.
When performed by a skilled, capable, highly-trained oculofacial and cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir in Beverly Hills, CA, upper eyelid surgery (also known as upper blepharoplasty or an upper eyelid lift) can correct these problematic changes undermining your appearance, to restore your well-rested, youthful look. Dr. Steinsapir is a world renowned expert in eye surgery, and has developed innovative, less aggressive surgical techniques designed to enable subtle corrections to the fragile, delicate skin and musculature of the eye, corrections that deliver dramatic results while preserving the structures of the eye and minimizing the risk of complications and discomfort as much as possible.
What’s the first step?
If you believe you may be a candidate for an upper eyelid lift, the first step is easy: contact our office to schedule an individual consultation with Dr. Steinsapir. During your in-person meeting with Dr. Steinsapir, he will take the time to discuss your concerns and goals, conduct a thorough examination to determine the root cause(s) of your specific concerns, and explain the range of options most appropriate to achieve your unique goals. Once you and Dr. Steinsapir together have decided which procedure (or potentially combination of procedures) is right for you, we will provide you with a detailed cost estimate. This cost estimate will:
- Include everything your surgery will involve (with the exception of unexpected complications which can, unfortunately, arise during any surgical procedure, no matter how “safe”)
- Be based on a customized surgical plan focused on delivering customized results
- Enable you to see exactly what you are getting for your money: Dr. Steinsapir plans and performs every eye surgery and cosmetic surgery himself, so you can experience all the benefits of Dr. Steinsapir’s exceptional level of training and innovative surgical techniques
We encourage you not to begin your cosmetic surgery journey with an inquiry about cost. We understand that knowing the cost of a procedure is an important factor in your decision-making process. However, when you obtain a cost estimate through an Internet search or even from a surgeon’s office based on a photo or description of your problem (as opposed to an in-person visit), it is indicative of a willingness to forego a personalized approach in favor of a “cookie-cutter” surgical plan that is not based on your unique anatomical structures and aesthetic goals and, unfortunately, is unlikely to result in a surgical plan that complements your facial contours and improves your appearance.
By scheduling an in-person consultation with Dr. Steinsapir, you can feel comfortable knowing that the quote we provide you is honest, truthful, complete, and based on a surgical plan designed to ensure naturally-beautiful, age-defying eye rejuvenation that will help you stay young and gorgeous for years to come. We look forward to hearing from you today!
