About the Procedure
Eyelid surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure using IV sedation or general anesthesia. This is solely administered under the care of a board-certified anesthesiologist. Procedure details depend on the unique needs of the patient and whether an upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or double eyelid surgery is being performed.
For upper eyelid surgery, the incisions are deliberately placed along the crease of the upper eyelid. Through this incision, Dr. Prichard will gently remove excess skin and fat from the area.
Regarding lower eyelid surgery, or under eye bag surgery, incisions can be made within the lower eyelids, or along the lower lash line, causing the resultant scar to be virtually invisible. Dr. Prichard makes it his priority to perform some of the best eyelid surgery Phoenix has to offer.
