    What is Blepharoplasty?

    Blepharoplasty Eye Surgery

    shutterstock_101868868Aging signs typically become more visible in the eye area. Puffiness in the lower eyelids and droopiness in the upper lids can make a person look tired, older, or angry.

    Blepharoplasty or eyelid lift plastic surgery can be used to eliminate lax skin and excess fat deposits around the eyelids. This procedure can create a fresher, more youthful appearance for the eyes.

    In addition to the aesthetic advantages, Blepharoplasty can also provide functional benefits such as correction of partial vision obstruction in the upper lids (which may occur due to droopy eyelids.) Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides blepharoplasty to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.


    Blepharoplasty offers both cosmetic and functional benefits. This type of surgery can effectively treat:

    • Surplus or lax skin in the upper eyelids that can lead to a hooded appearance and alter the eye contour. This can even lead to partial vision obstruction.
    • Fatty deposits on tissues can cause puffiness in the lower lids, under eye bags, and heaviness around the eyes.
    • Droopiness in the lower lids

    High precision blepharoplasty plastic surgery procedures can address form as well as function of the upper and lower eyelids.

    Upper Eyelid Surgery

    Natural skin elasticity may be lost in the eyelids as the muscles become weaker and the eyelid tissue stretches because of aging and other reasons. Consequently, the eyelids may start looking puffy, making a person appear tired or angry. Blepharoplasty surgery can correct this issue successfully. This outpatient surgery procedure can provide the eyes with a more relaxed and youthful appearance.

    During an upper eyelid blepharoplasty surgery, the surgeon places an incision along the eyelid contour so that the subsequent scarring remains discreet. Then the surgeon will remove surplus skin through the incision to make the upper eyelid appear smoother. The incision will be closed using fine sutures.

    Lower Eyelid Surgery

    In some instances, weak eyelid muscles and loose tissue can cause the lower eyelids to appear puffy and tired. The eyelid skin can look wrinkled and rough. This problem can be corrected with a lower eyelid blepharoplasty procedure.

    During this surgery, the surgeon will place an incision either inside the eyelid or on the skin to eliminate the surplus skin. The objective is to remove the puffy bags under the eyes. The surgeon places incisions just beneath the eyelid margin to make any scarring inconspicuous.


    The surgeon will provide the patient with comprehensive instructions for post-op care. The patient should get adequate rest, use cold compresses to reduce the swelling and bruising, ensure the head remains elevated, and use an ointment prescribed by the surgeon to decrease irritation. A majority of the patients can resume work after a week as the bruising improves. However, the swelling may require more time to subside.

    In about two weeks, the patient will be able to notice vibrant and more youthful outcomes as the redness and swelling resolves. Dedicated cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and towns in this part of the southwest for eyelid surgery.

    How Much Does Cellulite Removal Treatment Cost?

    Cellulite Removal Treatment

    BMa2Bf0YB_Fp3FNvXXqR6yYw_ZfhawbBi-8kCYYC-wUVenus Freeze is an innovative non-surgical RF based treatment that helps in the targeted reduction of cellulite and skin tightening. Individuals considering enhancing their appearance without plastic surgery may choose Venus Freeze as an effective and safe option.

    The provider will discuss various aspects of the treatment, including its estimated costs, during the initial consultation.

    The first concern of a committed treatment provider will be to assist the patient in making a well-informed decision. The cost of the procedure is a part of this decision, particularly for elective aesthetic procedures that are not covered by health insurance.

    Cordial cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides cellulite removal treatments to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.

    Comparison of Costs with Surgery

    Health insurance usually does not cover an elective procedure such as cellulite removal. Therefore, the cost becomes a vital consideration for a patient. Surgery will cost more as it includes costs such as the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, and surgical venue costs as the procedure may have to be performed at a hospital or a surgery center.

    Furthermore, surgical procedures also involve post-operative costs, for instance, post-surgical appointments with the surgeon, lab tests, prescription medications, and surgical accessories costs. A non-surgical treatment such as Venus Freeze will not involve such cost elements, making the procedure more affordable than plastic surgery.

    Dollar Amount Components

    The cost of a cellulite removal treatment varies between practices due to their geographical location. The cost of living index is typically different between two diverse regions. This will have an impact on the total cost of the procedure. The costs in major cities and coastal areas will usually be more in comparison to smaller towns situated in interior regions.

    Factors such as technological capabilities, standard of care, expertise of the treatment provider, personalized services and attention to the patients at a particular practice will impact the overall costs. Patients must evaluate all factors while considering the cost of their cellulite removal treatment.

    Average Cost

    Venus Freeze treatment costs may be determined by the treatment location, number of areas to be treated, or the number of treatment sessions that a patient may require.

    The procedure may be offered as a package of six to eight sessions with treatment duration of about one hour per session. If the patient only requires the face and neck area to be treated, it may involve six treatment sessions of 45 minutes each. This could lower the treatment costs to some extent.

    Individual patients may also choose to undergo touch ups within a few months for sustained benefits. Patients should account for such additional costs while considering Venus Freeze. In some cases, a practice may be able to offer a rebate if the Venus Freeze treatment is combined with another cosmetic procedure.

    Patients who choose not to make the entire payment upfront may seek financing options such as family borrowings, personal loans, credit cards, or financing from a medical care financing company. Committed cosmetic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other towns and suburbs in this part of The Golden State for cellulite removal treatments.
