For Bethesda Plastic Surgeon Dr. Roger J. Oldham, nothing is more important than pleasing patients with the latest, most advanced surgical procedures, especially those designed for facial rejuvenation and the targeting of specific facial features including the comprehensive face reshaping (facelift), the smoothing of the forehead (brow lift), the reshaping of the neck and facial profile (neck lift), and finally, the reshaping of the upper and lower eyelids (blepharoplasty). Dr. Oldham is a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience performing blepharoplasty procedures for men and women alike.
Blepharoplasty surgery is among those cosmetic procedures which can be individually tailored to fit a patient’s individual desires. Some patients request only an upper lid lift, others a lower lid lift, still others a combined comprehensive approach with both upper and lower eyelids being treated. So which one is right for you? Generally, an upper lid lift is ideal for patients whose eyelids have begun to droop significantly. This can be observed when the lid presses against the eyelash line, when it begins to obscure vision or when there is a just a small extra fold of skin. Generally, a lower eyelid lift is ideal for patients whose lower lids have been puffy and raised, especially in proportion to other facial features such as the bridge of the nose. A combined approach can treat both upper and lower lids. All three approaches can be seen in these pictures before and after blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery).
You can discuss your candidacy for blepharoplasty surgery (upper, lower, or combined approaches) when you visit Dr. Oldham for your initial consultation. When you call to schedule your consultation, you can also ask questions and request a blepharoplasty price estimate.
