Achieve a More Youthful Look 
With Eyelid Surgery

A Blepharoplasty procedure at The Clinic of Facial Plastic Surgery in Buffalo, NY, can enhance the aesthetic and functionality of your eyelids. Dr. Sherris can perform surgery on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Benefits of the procedure include: 

Sagging Upper Eyelids

As you age, the skin of the upper eyelid can start to sag or droop. Although this is natural, a drooping eyelid can unintentionally make you look angry, tired, or sad.

Baggy Lower Eyelids

Another consequence of aging, the lower eyelid can become puffy or baggy over time. Eyelid surgery can correct this cosmetic issue. 

Tired Appearance 

Loose and sagging skin around your eyelids can make you appear tired, even if you're fully awake. Blepharoplasty can make you look younger and more youthful. 

Blepharoplasty can address drooping upper eyelids and baggy skin beneath the eyelids. However, eyelid surgery alone won't eliminate dynamic crow's feet at the corner of your eyes or sagging of the mid to lower face. Procedures like BOTOX®, facelifts or brow lifts can address wrinkles and sagging skin around different areas of your face when combined with eyelid surgery.

A Blepharoplasty May Be Right For You

During a consultation at his Buffalo, NY, office, Dr. Sherris will review your medical history and your aesthetic goals to see if eyelid surgery is right for you. Our plastic surgeon will check:

Overall Health

Certain health conditions can increase risks during surgery. If you have any medical concerns or are taking any medications, be sure to disclose this information to Dr. Sherris before surgery. 

Tobacco Use

Smoking and other tobacco products will compromise your body's ability to heal. At minimum, you should quit smoking a month before your eyelid surgery. 

Expectations

No plastic surgery or treatment can completely reverse aging. However, a blepharoplasty can make you appear much younger than before. 

The Blepharoplasty Procedure

Anesthesia

Anesthesia is applied for your comfort before any incisions are made.

Incision 

Once you are properly sedated, Dr. Sherris will make small incisions near the upper or lower eyelids. He will then remove excess skin and sometimes fat deposits or reposition the natural lower fat pad. The remaining skin is tightened, giving you smoother contours around the eyes.

Stitches 

After repositioning the skin, the incisions are stitched up. Dr. Sherris will remove the stitches about one week after the procedure and check healing.

Paying for Blepharoplasty Treatment 

Patients of all walks of life should be able to enjoy the benefits of eyelid surgery. Dr. Sherris offers financing through CareCredit®. 

CareCredit is free and easy to apply and you'll receive a decision immediately. If you're approved, you can schedule your procedure even before you receive your card. Some financing options through CareCredit allow you to make payments that range from six to 60 months. 

Our friendly office staff will gladly answer any questions you have regarding finance options during your visit. 

Complementary Procedures

When combined with eyelid surgery, a facelift or BOTOX can eliminate other lines and sagging skin around the face, leaving the patient looking more youthful. 

Facelift

Similar to how blepharoplasty addresses wrinkles and loose skin around the eyes, a facelift procedure smooths out sagging skin along the jawline, lower face and neck. Dr. Sherris also tightens and lifts the underlying layer of tissue over the facial muscles. He then removes sagging skin and smooths over the remaining tissue. This leaves the patient with a natural-looking, youthful appearance.

BOTOX Cosmetic

Botox injections are easy and can address crow's feet, forehead lines, and frown lines in just one visit. This non-invasive procedure requires minimal downtime and can help restore confidence with a more youthful appearance.
