Dr. Roger J. Oldham is an experienced cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon caring for patients from Maryland, DC, and Northern Virginia. Dr. Oldham’s conveniently-located practice in Bethesda has allowed him to care for patients from all over the greater Metro area, treating them through cosmetic procedures like a Facelift, or a cosmetic/reconstructive procedure like a Blepharoplasty. How is a procedure deemed cosmetic or reconstructive?
For many patients, blepharoplasty surgery is cosmetic, meaning it is a way to treat signs of aging around the eyes for patients dissatisfied with the appearance. For some patients, however, blepharoplasty is reconstructive, meaning the procedure is used to treat eyelids that have begun to sag and protrude so significantly that they obscure a patient’s vision. The procedure still has cosmetic benefits, however, and all patients end up more confidently smiling with their eyes, as you can see in these images of patients before and after blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery) in Dr. Oldham’s photo gallery.
In your personal blepharoplasty consultation at Dr. Oldham’s Bethesda, Maryland plastic surgery practice, you will meet with Dr. Oldham to discuss the procedure and then you will meet with Janet, our patient counselor, to discuss procedural details such as pre-operative requirements and blepharoplasty cost estimates.
