from Our Patients
I had a great experience with Dr. Newman. After having my lower eyelids done by him a few years ago, it was time for another rejuvenation - I wanted a laser resurfacing treatment. the procedure went exactly as Dr. Newman had promised it would, he had explained the pre op and post op care to me as did his wonderful nurse. I look fantastic - the healing took the amount of time the doctor had said it would. My friends ask if I've been on vacation and say that I look ten years younger. When I tell people my age, they are amazed! (PS Dr. Newman is a kind, caring and talented doctor with a kind and attentive staff)
I have been a patient of Dr. Newman since I beleive 2013. For me, that in itself says something about his expertise and quality of work. The office and medical staff are very friendly and its always been a very good experience whenever I am there. In my opinion, Dr. Newman is the best plastic surgeon in the business. He is very friendly, gives you lots of time, is detailed, organized and confident in making you the best you can look.
What Can Eyelid Surgery Address?
An Incredibly Popular Treatment
Not Sure Eyelid Surgery Is Right for You?
Consult an Expert
With over 30 years of plastic surgery experience, Dr. Newman has the knowledge and expertise to provide results that enhance your self-esteem as well as your appearance.

Take a Look at How Blepharoplasty Works...
Types of Blepharoplasty
Upper blepharoplasty can remove drooping skin and fat in the upper eyelids that can obscure vision and cause patients to look tired or angry.
Lower blepharoplasty can reduce puffiness and under eye circles by tightening the skin and removing excess fat from the eyelids.
Worried about Scarring?
Modern Techniques Make Scarring Virtually Undetectable
Dr. Newman uses modern surgical techniques to minimize the appearance of scarring after blepharoplasty. In upper eyelid surgery, he creates the incisions in the natural crease of the eyelid. For lower eyelid surgery, he can place the incision just below the lash line. Dr. Newman works carefully to provide patients with a rested and rejuvenated appearance with no obvious scarring.

I’ve been coming to Dr.Newman for about 10 years now and he truly is THE BEST PLASTIC SURGEON IN AMERICA. He is excellent in his profession and actually cares about his patients. I love how he updates me on whats newest in the field but does not ever push treatments, he educates. His work has been beautiful and I’m pleased with the results after every visit. He is my anti-aging secret!

Even the follow ups afterward made me feel cared for and important. Definitely would recommend coming here!
The Results: Natural-Looking & Potentially Life-Changing
Most patients are pleased with their blepharoplasty experience and their newly invigorated appearance. In fact, greater confidence in one's appearance can often lend itself to greater confidence in professional and social engagements. Most people will not realize that you have undergone a surgical procedure but may comment that you look younger, healthier, and better rested.
The Cost of Eyelid Surgery
Affordable, Transparent Pricing
The cost of eyelid surgery depends on your choice of surgeon, the extent of surgery, the purpose of your surgery, and a number of other factors. For example, functional blepharoplasty procedures can remove excess skin obstructing your field of vision. Because this is intended to improve your vision, insurance plans may cover part of the cost. In contrast, blepharoplasty performed for cosmetic purposes can provide a dramatic aesthetic enhancement but is not covered by insurance.
On average, though, an upper or lower blepharoplasty costs about $3,000 for both sides, and about $6,000 for upper and lower on both sides. More information on your estimated blepharoplasty cost will be explained during a consultation with Dr. Fredric Newman at our Darien practice in Fairfield County.

Factors Affecting Cost
The venue where surgery takes place is a significant cost factor. Hospitals are the costliest option, while an ambulatory surgical center (ASC) or third-party surgical venue costs less. Dr. Newman has his own surgical center certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, which is considered the gold standard for patient care and safety. In addition, the center meets the stringent requirements of the State of Connecticut, the same agency that credentials hospital operating rooms.
Having our own ambulatory surgical facility allows us to not only offer our patients increased privacy, but also provides significant cost savings compared to a hospital or ASC. We follow a strict screening protocol and do not treat anyone with infections. Patients need to first undergo pre-operative testing, after which they are cleared to receive treatment at our facility. This has ensured that we have an infection rate of nearly zero.
Worried about How to Pay for Surgery?
Financing Options Available
Patients who undergo blepharoplasty to improve their vision can expect that insurance may cover a portion of the cost. If not, we can still recommend a number of financing options including CareCredit® and Comprehensive Finance, which offer low-interest monthly payment plans for qualified applicants. Dr. Newman and his team believe that treatment should be within reach for all individuals who desire it and we will do everything we can to make your treatment more affordable at our Darien practice.
Alternatives to Eyelid Surgery
Explore Your Options
For patients who are not ready to undergo surgery, Dr. Newman can recommend a non-surgical alternative such as BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, microdermabrasion, or laser treatments. However, it is important to remember that non-surgical treatments do not provide the same long-lasting results as eyelid surgery and you will likely need to undergo regular treatments in order to maintain your results.
