About Eyelid Surgery
The eyes are a unique aspect of the face that deserve to be seen; however, an abundance of skin on top or around the eyes can render an unflattering look. Port St. Lucie, FL plastic surgeon Dr. S. Darrell Lee performs blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery) to lift and tighten the upper or lower eyelid, creating an awakened appearance. Countless men and women have eyelid surgery at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center to correct sagging skin, leading to improved function and appearance. Whether upper and/or lower, eyelid surgery creates a softer, younger appearance and can produce subtle yet striking improvements.
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that is popular among both men and women. During the initial consult, treatment alternatives will be provided by Dr. Lee based on your conditions that need to be addressed. Most often, ideal candidates suffer from excess, sagging skin and folds on the upper or lower eyelid. These conditions can cause functional problems that can hinder everyday life. For a rejuvenated facial appearance, eyelid surgery may be the right treatment for you. If you have excess, hanging skin on the upper eyelid, or puffy bags under the eyes, blepharoplasty can fix this to give you a softer appearance.
Eyelid Lift Reviews
"I chose Dr. Lee after visiting other plastic surgeons and I’m glad I did! He did a neck, brow and eyelid lift for me and I’m so happy with the results! I found Dr. Lee to be very patient and understanding and that goes for his excellent nurse and office staff as well. I highly recommend Dr. Lee!"- S.E. / Google / Jul 14, 2018
Depending on the nature of the blepharoplasty, general anesthesia or IV sedation will be used. This surgery may be done on the upper eyelid alone, on the bottom portion, or a combination of both treatments.
Upper blepharoplasty assists in reducing the loose of skin that droops over the eye to create a more flattering look. An incision is usually made along the natural crease to remove skin and fatty tissue.
Lower bleph is performed to reduce bulging, bloated skin underneath the lower eyelid. The incision is made below the lash line to allow access to remove fat, and the skin is gently lifted to create a flatter, smoother look. In some cases, a nonsurgical laser treatment can be performed to assist with discoloration, while injectable fillers can be used for additional volume and smoothness if needed.
What to Expect
Eyelid surgery can last up to two hours depending on whether upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both are treated. After surgery, you should allow several days to rest. Cold compression can help reduce swelling, bruising, and discomfort. The results from eyelid surgery can last years, but even though they are lasting, the aging process does not stop. To continue to enhance your surgical outcomes, nonsurgical treatments at Lee Plastic Surgery and Laser Center such as injections, fillers, and lasers can be paired to create a glowing appearance.
