Blepharoplasty

How It Works

Blepharoplasty

Like all procedures, your blepharoplasty starts with a consultation with Dr. Reilly. He will examine the skin around your eyes and determine if a blepharoplasty is the right procedure to address your concerns. The goal is twofold: to learn your goals and find the best treatment(s) to meet them.

On the day of your procedure, you’ll come into the office and be given either local or general anesthesia. Local anesthesia is all that’s necessary for an upper eyelid lift, while a lower eyelid lift may require general anesthesia. Once you’re anaesthetized, Dr. Reilly will remove any excess skin or fatty tissue that might be causing the puffiness or bags around your eyes.

After the surgery, you’ll receive your aftercare instructions and be sent home. You’ll be able to notice brighter, more refreshed eyes within a few months!

From the time you enter the front office to the final review of the surgery, the staff and Dr. Reilly are extremely friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable about all the questions you might have. They were more than accommodating as I had my surgery right before the Christmas break and I had everyone’s cell phone numbers in case I needed help. Professional service from start to finish!!

Why You Should Choose Dr. Reilly

Personalized care in Shelton, CT

Obviously, your eyes are one of your most important sensory organs. People are looking at them all day, every day. If you’re considering a blepharoplasty, it’s essential to find an experienced surgeon with skills you can trust. A surgeon without the right skills and experience could leave you with unsightly results or even damage your vision.

Turn to Dr. Reilly. During his decades in plastic surgery, he’s performed hundreds of blepharoplasties. He has the skill and experience to give your eyes the refreshed, youthful look you want. Whether you want to remove crepe-paper type wrinkles on the lower eyelids or remove loose skin on the upper eyelids, he can do it.

Keep in mind, too, that Dr. Reilly is always there for his patients. He sees them for every pre-op and post-op appointment in addition to the consultation and surgery itself. Many plastic surgeons don’t do this. Fewer still give out their cell phone numbers, like Dr. Reilly does, so patients can call them directly if they have questions or concerns.

Patients throughout Shelton, CT and the surrounding areas trust Dr. Reilly with blepharoplasties, and once you meet with him, you’ll understand why! Take the first step to younger-looking eyes today. Call or fill out the form to request a consultation!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Call us if you have any more questions. (203) 924-2900

  • How do I know if I’m a candidate for the procedure?

    Are your upper eyelids puffy, loose, sagging, or drooping? Do you have undereye bags or saggy lower eyelid skin? If you answered yes to these questions, you could be a good candidate for a blepharoplasty. Dr. Reilly can give you a full exam and let you know if this is the right procedure for you or if another procedure might give the results you want.

  • Will this procedure leave scars?

    All surgeries leave scars, so yes, this procedure will leave a scar. However, Dr. Reilly is an expert when it comes to placing incisions. He’ll make sure your scars are completely unnoticeable.

  • What’s the recovery like after the surgery?

    You’ll get a detailed care plan from Dr. Reilly as soon as your surgery is complete. Recovery from a blepharoplasty is relatively quick. Within a week, you should be able to resume using eye makeup (assuming you used it in the first place) to cover up bruising and discoloration, and you should be able to resume a sedentary job. You should see your full results in a few months.

  • How much will the surgery cost?

    Because each surgery is tailored to the patient’s individual goals, costs vary from patient to patient. You can discuss the cost with Dr. Reilly’s staff at your initial consultation. Rest assured that there are many payment and financing options available.
