Plastic Surgeon for Beverly Hills, Los Angeles and Santa Monica, California

A facelift from Dr. Michael McGuire is an excellent way of rejuvenating a worn, aged or haggard facial appearance. With our innovative facelift procedure, you will appear refreshed and relaxed without looking as if you've undergone a facelift.

However, one of the most prominent signs of age and fatigue is the heavy upper eyelid and the lower eyelid "bags.". Tired-looking eyes can make you look exhausted despite your stores of energy and vigor. Fortunately, Dr. McGuire can perform eyelid surgery during your facelift as part of a larger revitalization strateg, or separately as desired.

Known medically as "blepharoplasty," eyelid surgery can rejuvenate tired eyes by lifting heavy and sagging eyelids.

Why Get Eyelid Surgery As Well?

Dr. McGuire is committed to providing you with a natural facelift appearance. But this commitment is not just about avoiding some common pitfalls of facelift surgery, including a "wind tunnel" look. A natural look requires a broader, more encompassing approach to facial surgery.

If you undergo a facelift without addressing your concerns about tired, droopy eyes, the end result will be less than it could be. You'll have a youthful, refreshed look, but your eyes will still seem fatigued and aged.

Dr. McGuire has been performing facial procedures for decades, so he understands how these procedures interact to create the greater whole that is your preferred appearance.

The Eyelid Surgery Procedure

The blepharoplasty procedure itself is fairly simple. If you decide you wish to undergo eyelid surgery as part of your facelift, we will:

  • First ensure you are a sound candidate for the procedure
  • Administer a light general anesthesia before the procedure by a Board certified anesthesiologist (not a nurse)
  • Make incisions in the upper eyelids and inside the lower eyelids to avoid any scar at all
  • Remove excess skin and fat, using some of the fat from the "bags" to fill in the hollow of the lower eyelid

And that's it. The end result will be smoother, tighter eyelids that show off your eyes and provide the appearance of alertness, youth, and vigor. The contour of the lower eyelids will be smooth and youthful. When combined with a facelift, the total results will be nothing short of transformational.

Cost of Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery can vary greatly in cost due to the fact that there are two different ways to approach the procedure, depending on the results you want to achieve. If you are getting an upper eyelid procedure, Dr. McGuire offers this at around $4,200. If you are getting a lower eyelid surgery, the cost is about $4,000. Take note that every plastic surgery procedure prices differ, and may be higher due to anesthesia and operating room fees. However, the best way to know for sure how much your personalized procedure will cost, schedule a consultation with our experienced team.
