Before your Eyelid Surgery

Types of Anesthesia
Dr. Narsete will discuss the type of anesthesia used for this procedure during your consultation and will depend on factors, such as your medical status and your comfort level. A local anesthesia may be used, which will numb the area but leave you awake during the procedure. A general anesthesia may also be considered, which would allow you to sleep comfortably throughout the surgery.
The Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Incisions are placed in a natural skin fold to avoid a detectable scar. Then excess fat is repositioned or trimmed. The procedure takes 1-2 hrs and both the upper and lower eyelids can be done at the same time. Dr. Narsete can also enhance your normal skin crease by repairing a muscle inside your upper lids.
What is the cost of Eyelid Surgery?

To help make eyelid surgery affordable and accessible for everyone, Dr. Narete offers financing options which can be discussed during your consultation.
