Bristol Eyelid Surgery/ Blepharoplasty Surgeon – Dr. Bandeian
Serving Patients in Kingsport, Elizabethton, Bristol, Tri-Cities, TN-VA and Johnson City, TN


Eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty), one of the most popular facial rejuvenation procedures Dr. Bandeian offers, is a corrective procedure that can reduce dark circles or “bags” under the eyes, remove excess wrinkles, and provide a more youthful appearance to the eyes. One of the first things noticed about a person is their eyes. During the aging process, wrinkles, lines, and puffiness contribute to a tired or aged appearance. The blepharoplasty surgery is often performed in conjunction with other facial procedures such as a face lift or rhinoplasty (nose surgery). Dr. John Bandeian, a renowned Bristol eyelid surgery provider, has helped many blepharoplasty patients in Elizabethton, Johnson City, Bristol, Tri-Cities, TN-VA and Kingsport, TN achieve a more youthful and refreshed look with this procedure.

Patients who are interested in a blepharoplasty may call Dr. Bandeian’s office for a consultation. The cost of the initial consultation is applied to the surgical fee. At the consultation, he listens to his patients’ concerns and then discusses eyelid lifts and alternatives in details. He will also learn about the patient’s past medical history so the surgery can be done as safely as possible. Patients will be show before and after pictures of eyelid lifts and alternatives.

The blepharoplasty procedure includes tiny incisions made in the natural contours around the eyes which should leave no visible scarring. Bristol blepharoplasty surgeon Dr. Bandeian will usually work on the upper eyelids first to remove any fatty tissue and tighten loose skin. Lower eyelids are completed next to eliminate puffiness and reduce dark circles. In some instances, laser technology may be used to smooth lower eyelid areas. Newer techniques may include Botox injections to firm fine lines and wrinkles.

The surgery generally takes about one to three hours and is performed at our state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery Bristol facility using a combination of sedation by vein and local anesthesia. If additional cosmetic procedures are being performed, the eyelid surgery could last longer. Patients are given pain pills, although there is very little pain after the operation. The stitches come out in 5 days, and most patients can wear sun glasses to conceal the bruising and resume many regular activities after a few days.

In addition to performing eyelid surgery in Bristol, TN, Dr. Bandeian also offers surgical treatments for Bristol facelift, Botox and Restylane patients seeking to rejuvenate their appearance
