I was very impressed from the first phone to see about getting an appointment, to getting, being greeted by staff and by Jennifer, the Physician Assistant. I couldn’t be more pleased with her interaction and discussion with me about my issue and the determination to figure out my issues.

Dr. Beal is AMAZING!Dr. Beal listened to my concerns, he was thoughtful, & thorough. He explained his process & any possible outcomes that may result of my treatment. I felt more than comfortable expressing my concerns and asking questions. Dr. Beal will be the only doctor I go to for any dermatological issues should they arise in the future.

First acquainted with Dr. Beal when I had a sore that would not heal. I was 69 at the time and never went to a dermatologist. He was recommended by primary care Dr. in Troy, MO. I was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma. I was treated/Mohrs surgery. Dr. Beal and his crew were knowledgeable, patient, and professional.Bed side manner was A+. He answered my many questions and helped diminish my concerns. After the Mohrs surgery, and following his treatment plan - I was given the positive green light. Now I go every year, to receive my annual dermatology examine and couldn't be more pleased with Dr. Beal and his crew.I also like that his office is close to our home & we don't have to drive into the city.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. This eyelid surgery can be performed on the lower, upper, or both. Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional issues with your eyelids, blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the area around your eyes.

Conditions of the lower lid that can be corrected include bags or puffiness under the eyes, drooping lower lids, or excess skin and wrinkles. When there is excess fat but little or no excess skin, the incision can be made inside the lower eyelid (a transconjunctival incision), avoiding a visible scar. If you have excess skin and fat, the incision is made just below the lower lashes, where the scar can be well hidden. Excess skin can be removed, and fat can be removed or repositioned.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty

There are several benefits of blepharoplasty. This eyelid surgery can treat:

  • Fat deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disrupts the natural contour of the upper eyelid
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
  • Drooping lower eyelids

What to Expect from Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is usually done under local anesthesia combined with “twilight sleep” and takes about 45 to 60 minutes. The incision is made within the natural crease in the eyelid, so the scar is easily concealed.

Most people experience minimal pain and completely recover in a week. Minor swelling and bruising may last for a few days. The result will be a better-defined eyelid and an alert, rejuvenated appearance.

Your initial healing may include swelling, bruising, irritation, or dry eyes. This can be managed with medication, cold compresses, and ointment. The results will appear gradually as the swelling goes down. You must be diligent about sun protection and wear darkly tinted sunglasses until the healing is complete.
