Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Droopy, puffy eyes and eyelids can result in a tired and aged appearance, and may make you look older than you really are. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, eliminates excess skin and fat around the eyelids, resulting in a more refreshed, youthful appearance. Eyelid surgery at The Aesthetic Surgery Centre can also improve vision that is impaired by sagging eyelids. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani is a board-certified plastic surgeon who can help you effectively rejuvenate your appearance.
Please contact The Aesthetic Surgery Centre to schedule a consultation for eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) with our plastic surgeon.
The Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Eyelid surgery, medically referred to as blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper lids to eliminate drooping or on the lower lids to remove fat pockets from under the eyes. During upper eyelid surgery, incisions are discreetly made in the natural folds and creases of the lids. Excess fat, muscle, and skin are removed, and the incisions are stitched closed with fine sutures. During lower eyelid surgery, the incision is made along the lash line. Excess fat and skin are removed and the incisions are closed with fine sutures. Eyelid surgery at our Florida practice can be performed as a single procedure, or it can be combined with other procedures, such as a face lift.
Eyelid surgery is performed under anesthesia and takes about one hour to complete, depending on the extent of your procedure.
Eyelid Surgery Recovery
Following eyelid surgery, you may experience side effects such as swelling, bruising, blurred vision, double vision, dry eyes, and sensitivity to light, but they should fade within 10 days. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani and his staff will be happy to answer your questions about all aspects of the eyelid surgery procedure, including the pre-operative and recovery process.
Eyelid surgery can leave the skin around your eyes looking and feeling firmer, tighter, well-rested, and years – even decades – younger. If you would like to learn more about eyelid surgery, please contact the Aesthetic Surgery Centre today.
