Portland Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery can provide an improvement in the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is often used to provide Portland plastic surgery patients with a more rested and alert appearance. Eyelid surgery can be combined with a brow lift, laser skin resurfacing, facial fillers and Latisse to provide a complete rejuvenation of the eye area. Our staff is equipped and experienced to provide Portland eyelid surgery patients the results they desire.

Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery patients and plastic surgery patients in general should be in good overall health prior to any procedure. Both physical and mental health are important, both for the effectiveness of the procedure and the recovery process. Good Portland eyelid surgery candidates typically display the following concerns:

  • Puffy upper or lower eyelids
  • Tired looking eyes
  • Excess upper or lower eyelid skin

 How is Eyelid Surgery Performed?

The best technique used to perform every eyelid surgery in Portland will depend on the patient and their needs. Factors that decide how the surgery will be performed include age, ethnicity, and which eyelids (upper, lower, or both) are being operated on.

Incisions for upper eyelid surgery are made along the crease of the lids, so scars are virtually invisible. For the lower eyelid, the incision can be made on the inside or outside of eyelid. Depending on your cosmetic needs, Dr. Chan can remove excess fat and skin from the eyelids and surrounding areas.

What Can I Expect After Eyelid Surgery?

Portland eyelid surgery patients should expect slight swelling and bruising of the eyelid surgery. These symptoms should subside within a week and can be helped along by following post-operative instruction given to you by Dr. Chan.

How Much Does Eyelid Surgery Cost?

The cost for eyelid surgery can be discussed at your initial eyelid surgery consultation with our expert cosmetic surgery staff. Insurance will generally not cover the cost of eyelid surgery.
