All the steps involved in the surgery and after the surgery were explained step by step and all questions were answered clearly and honestly. I knew exactly what to expect after my breast surgery and the follow up care was exceptional! I am now over 1 year out from my surgery and I love the way my breasts look and I feel less pain in my shoulders and back. I am more confident in my appearance now more than ever before. I wish I had done this surgery sooner. I completely trust Dr. Albright and now see him for all my aesthetic needs including Botox, Dysport and Fillers. He always makes me look natural and refreshed vs. “overdone”.

Plan Your Procedure
what to expect
During blepharoplasty, depending on the nature of the surgery, general anesthesia or IV sedation will be used. This cosmetic procedure may be done on the upper eyelid alone, on the bottom portion, or a combination of both treatments at once.
Upper blepharoplasty assists in reducing the loose of skin that droops over the eye and attains a more flattering look. An incision is usually made along the natural crease to remove skin and tissue.
Lower bleph is performed to reduce bulging, bloated skin underneath the lower eyelid. The incision is made below the lash line to allow access to remove fat, and the skin is gently lifted to create a flatter, smoother look. In some cases, a nonsurgical laser treatment can be performed to assist with discoloration, while injectable fillers can be used for additional volume and smoothness if needed.
Eyelid surgery can last up to two hours depending on whether one or both eyes are treated. After surgery, patients should allow several days to rest. Cold compression can help reduce swelling, bruising, and discomfort. The results from eyelid surgery can last years and even though the results are lasting, the aging process does not stop. To continue to enhance the surgical outcomes, nonsurgical treatments such as injections, filllers, and laser can be paired to create a glowing appearance.
