It is common to feel a pinch of pain with the injection of local anesthetic and then only pressure and mild discomfort for the remainder of the procedure.

Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is appropriate for both women and men, young and old. Generally it is preferred to start at an earlier age with eyelid skin tightening, including simple fractionated CO2 laser (DOT) treatments. Men particularly get their upper eyelids corrected, and this is part of our Executive Makeover™ package.

Blepharoplasty is performed on adults of all ages. You should be in relatively good physical health to be a good candidate for blepharoplasty. You should want to improve the appearance of your eye area, have realistic expectations for the procedure’s results, and have a good understanding of the procedure.

How Much Does a Blepharoplasty Cost?

The average total cost of a blepharoplasty in Boca Raton ranges from $3,500 to $5,000. The average cost without facility, anesthesia, and other fees ranges from $2,500 to $4,500. Lower and quad blepharoplasties tend to cost more than upper blepharoplasties. 

Here’s what goes into the total cost of your blepharoplasty procedure:   

  • Anesthesia fees may apply. Most blepharoplasty surgeries are outpatient procedures that are done under local anesthesia and oral sedation. Your anesthesia fee may vary based on the best type of anesthetic for you and your individual procedure.  
  • Facility fees may apply. Your blepharoplasty procedure is done in a clean, modern surgery center that meets the highest quality, health, and safety parameters. Our patient’s safety is our top priority.  
  • Dr. Andress Ress is the most experienced blepharoplasty surgeon who provides the best results, and his pricing reflects this. His experience and outcomes make his procedures worth more than those of less experienced and less successful surgeons. 
  • Most blepharoplasty procedures are elective and cosmetic procedures not covered by health insurance. On rare occasions, eyelids can begin to droop far enough to obstruct your vision. In this case, your insurance may cover all or part of the procedure. 
  • Your consultation is always free. After your consultation, we can provide specific details on your total expected blepharoplasty cost. 
  • Financing options are available at [liv]® Plastic Surgery. Financing options can be discussed during and after your individualized consultation.

How long does blepharoplasty last?

The results of upper eyelid surgery lasts about 5 to 7 years and lower eyelid surgery results are essentially permanent. The results of your blepharoplasty can also depend on individual factors, genetics, your skin care regimen, and sun exposure. 

Professional and medical-grade skin care can extend the life of your blepharoplasty. Sunscreen, sun hats, and sun protection are instrumental in extending your results. 

The results of blepharoplasty can be amplified, improved, and extended when paired with other cosmetic procedures. Here are additional procedures that pair well with blepharoplasty: 

  • Injectable neurotoxins such as Botox®, Dysport®, and Xemin®
  • Sculptra®
  • Facial filler
  • Laser resurfacing
  • Facials and the HydraFacial MD®
  • Chemical peel
  • Microneedling
Is A blepharoplasty worth the money?

The vast majority of people are pleased with the results of their eyelid surgery and say that their blepharoplasty procedure was worth the money and more! Your eye area is one of the first and most prominent parts of your body to show signs of age. Blepharoplasty is an extremely effective way to appear refreshed, younger, and more energized while minimizing the visible signs of aging. 


Eyelid surgery results are designed to appear natural looking and enhance facial features. Eyelid surgery is considered to be worth it if you are wanting to look younger and more refreshed. 

What is the difference between a Brow Lift vs. a Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is most effective for people with excess skin and droopy upper eyelids. A brow lift works best for people with heavy, droopy eyebrows and forehead wrinkles. Each procedure provides excellent results, but one may be better for you based on your goals, desires, and outcomes.


If you are debating whether to pursue a brow lift, blepharoplasty, or both, ensure you receive a personalized consultation with a cosmetic surgeon before making a decision. A skilled and experienced surgeon is your best resource when determining which procedure is correct for you.  

Will I look the same after blepharoplasty?

Yes and no! The results of your blepharoplasty will be noticeable but natural. You will look like yourself but appear more youthful, refreshed, and rejuvenated. You will also notice a substantial decrease in the appearance of undereye bags and puffiness.  


Blepharoplasty can help make the eyes look "larger" by removing encroaching soft tissue from the corners. However, the actual shape of a person's eye is not changed with this procedure. Your surgeon will ensure your procedure is done with care and consideration of your natural facial features and structure.
