According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 200,000 people in the United States underwent cosmetic eye surgery in 2010. The demand for blepharoplasty surpasses facelift, rhinoplasty, facial implants, and forehead lift. The eyelid and potential fat pockets around and under the eyes may distort the person’s natural expression and contribute to their psychological state of depression. If the lids grow droopy or bulging, the face may project an inappropriate look of fatigue and lack of vigor despite adequate rest and good health. This not only misleads others, but has a detrimental effect on the person thus suffering. Blepharoplasty will definitely help you. However, once the eyes are “hollowed” and “tightened” your face might appear unnatural simply because your sagging jaw or neckline begin to suddenly stand out.
Dr.Fisher therefore recommends undertaking several procedures together, which is also cheaper for you, because the Operating Room does not have to be cleared and sterilized for one brief surgery (such as only blepharoplasty) but for several surgeries (neck-lift, face-lift, and blepharoplasty, and/or rhinoplasty) at the same time, only once. Since a significant item on your surgery bill is the payment for the OR, oxygen, anesthesia etc… Your overall price for several surgeries, which may cost over $5,000 individually, will be lowered to almost one-half.
