Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) in Fredericksburg, VA

What is Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)?

A person's eyes are a beautiful aspect of the face that deserves to be shown; however, abundant skin around the eyes can render an unflattering facial appearance. Plastic surgeons Dr. Howard Heppe, Dr. Harold Bautista, and Dr. Pejman Aflaki perform eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty, to reduce excess skin and rejuvenate the upper or lower eyelid, creating a more "alert" look. So many men and women undergo eyelid surgery at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg to eliminate saggy eyelids, improving functionality and facial appearance. Whether upper or lower, eyelid surgery creates a fresh, youthful appearance and can give you natural yet noticeable improvements. If you want to refresh your eyes by removing excess skin, contact us to schedule a consultation with Drs. Heppe, Bautista, and Aflaki at our Fredericksburg office serving the Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, DC and Maryland areas.

How is Eyelid Surgery Performed?

Depending on the nature of the eyelid surgery, some form of anesthesia will be used. This procedure may be done on the top eyelid by itself, under or on the bottom eyelid, or a blend of both upper and lower.

  • Upper
    Upper eyelid surgery assists in reducing the loose skin that impairs vision to produce a more awakened and appealing look. An incision is usually made along the natural crease to remove tissue and fat.
  • Lower
    Lower bleph is performed to reduce puffy skin under the lower eyelid. In most cases, an incision is carefully made below the lash line to remove tissue and fat surgically, and the skin is delicately lifted to create a smoother look. In some cases, nonsurgical laser treatments can be incorporated to help with discoloration while dermal fillers can be used for added smoothness and softening if desired.

What Are the Benefits of Blepharoplasty?

A customized blepharoplasty at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg yields functional and aesthetic improvements alike to your eyelids with significant upsides, which include:

  • Expanding vision by increasing the line of vision
  • Providing a more awakened, aware expression
  • Minimizing sagging and/or excess skin in the upper and lower eyelids
  • Resolving puffiness in bottom lids
  • Boosting comfort by reducing friction from skin creases
  • Resulting in a more youthful, revitalized look
  • Enhancing the contour and look of the eyes

The whole staff was amazing. I had a breast lift with augmentation and I love the results. I am no longer embarrassed about my chest. I also had filler under my eyes and everyone at work has commented on how rested I look. My only regret is I wish I would have done this procedure years ago.
