What Is Blepharoplasty?
A person's eyes are often the most striking and memorable part of their look, but an excess of skin can hide even the most beautiful eyes, creating a tired and unflattering appearance. Dr. Sean McNally at The Oregon Clinic uses eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) to reduce excess skin and rejuvenate the lower or upper eyelid, creating a softer look. Countless men and women receive eyelid surgery at The Oregon Clinic to reduce puffy bulges, leading to improved function and appearance. Whether upper or lower, eyelid surgery creates a more awakened appearance and can give you subtle yet noticeable improvements. Contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. McNally if you want to learn more about refreshing your eyes with eyelid lift surgery in Portland, OR.
What Should I Expect for A Blepharoplasty?
At The Oregon Clinic, we can offer general anesthesia or IV sedation for your procedure, depending on the type of eyelid surgery being performed and the complexity of the treatment. Blepharoplasty can be carried out on the top eyelid, the bottom, or a combination of both.
Upper blepharoplasty assists in diminishing the loose skin that droops over the eye to create a more flattering look. The incision point is often placed along the lash line or crease to trim away skin and tissue.
Lower eyelid surgery is performed to reduce puffy and bulging skin beneath the lower eyelid. In most cases, an incision is placed just under the lash line to allow access to remove fatty tissue, and the skin is gently lifted to create a softer, flatter look. Sometimes, a nonsurgical laser treatment may be applied to help with discoloration while injectable fillers can be used for more volume and smoothness if desired.
Dr. McNally commonly carries out blepharoplasty to help patients see better while highlighting the natural beauty of their eyes. Contact our cosmetic office in Portland, OR to learn more.
The Oregon Clinic Reviews
Dr. McNally did a scar revision for breast cancer surgery that I had over five years ago and I am so pleased! I wish I had done it sooner. I am blown away by his skill (I look as good as new)! My experience was perfect from start to finish. Five stars!!
I chose Dr. McNally after diligent research and interviewing multiple surgeons to perform several procedures including abdominoplasty and liposuction. Ultimately, I chose Dr. McNally for his bedside manner, credentials, professionalism, confidence and skill. It’s difficult to find a plastic surgeon who is skilled at multiple procedures that are cosmetic and medically necessary, who go to bat for their patients with insurance companies…That speaks to Dr. McNally’s true character. Dr. McNally takes time answer any questions and really listens. He has greatly exceeded any expectations for pre op/post op care and results on my body contour. I’m still in shock with how my body looks and feels and look forward to enjoying living in comfort with style. Major surgery can be a scary process, but every step of the way, I felt cared for and comfortable knowing that Dr. McNally would deliver the best results with the latest technology and skill. If you’re looking for a surgeon with empathy, confidence and ability to deliver results, look no further. Thank you, Dr. McNally! ~M
Dr. McNally was great; friendly, good bedside manner, and good surgeon. Happy with the results.
Dr. McNally changed my whole life for the better! I cannot say enough great things about him. From the very first appointment I had with him I felt completely comfortable and knew I made the right choice having him be my surgeon. He actively listened to any concerns I had and informed me on what to expect pre and post surgery. The procedure with him went smoothly with no complications. He put my mind at ease during my healing process and my incision lines are practically invisible! So thank you Dr. McNally!!! You have no idea the impact you made on my life! Highly highly recommend!

I just explanted with Dr. McNally. I really wanted to have an en bloc capsulectomy done and it was really important to me to have the right surgeon to do this. Although Dr. McNally could not guarantee he could do this and would only do this if this did not put me at risk, which I greatly appreciated that he was successful in doing the en bloc capsulectomy along with a lift. I am extremely happy with the results and I highly recommend Dr. McNally. He is very skilled and caring.

Can I use insurance to pay for my eyelid surgery?
When loose skin is limiting your vision, your insurance may cover some of your eyelid lift. Please tell Dr. McNally during your consultation if you are considering using your insurance. Someone at The Oregon Clinic will help you get the required paperwork and information to your provider to process your claim. In most cases, you will require a letter from an ophthalmologist or optometrist that an eyelid lift is medically necessary to restore your field of vision.
What are some other benefits of an eyelid lift?
Blepharoplasty not only helps to refresh your face, but it can also give you other benefits. You may find your field of vision expanding once hanging skin on your upper eyelid is removed. It is also easier to apply eye makeup once your upper lid is smooth. Eliminating fine lines, paper-thin skin, puffy bags, and dark circles under your eyes may make your eyes appear brighter and fuller without a lot of makeup.
Will an eyelid lift fix wrinkles and Crow's feet?
Wrinkles on your forehead and the corners of your eyes (Crow's feet) might be better corrected with a brow lift or facelift since the improvements of eyelid surgery are limited to the upper or lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery may be combined with a nonsurgical treatment such as BOTOX®, which can smooth wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. An injectable filler can also be effective because it adds volume to hollow areas for a softer, smoother appearance. During your initial consultation, Dr. McNally will develop your custom treatment plan based on your needs and goals.
