Whether it’s because of a few sleepless nights, high stress levels, or a side effect of aging, under-eye bags and droopy eyelids may be taking their toll on your appearance. Eyelid surgery is an attractive option for men and women who want to rejuvenate their look and maintain a fresh-faced appearance. We can perform blepharoplasty on the upper, lower, or both eyelids to get rid of excess tissue, fat pads, and wrinkles so you look well rested and can maintain a wide-eyed appearance.
Here’s a closer look at how eyelid surgery works, and whether you may be a good candidate for the procedure:
Cosmetic eyelid surgery can get rid of puffy bags under the eyelids and tighten up loose skin around the delicate eye area. These areas are typically difficult to treat with injectables like Botox, or even with other non-invasive skin tightening treatments. We can use very special techniques to reposition the skin and remove excess skin around the area. The final result is a fresh-faced appearance and a rejuvenated look.
If you are self-conscious about puffiness under the eyes, droopy eyelids, or fat pads under the eyes that are taking away from your youthful appearance, eyelid surgery may be the perfect procedure for you.
Both upper and lower eyelid surgery are performed on an outpatient basis under intravenous (IV) sedation or general anesthesia. You will discuss sedation options during your consultation with Dr. Vendetti. The procedure involves removing excess fat deposits, cutting away excess skin, and tightening up loose skin around the delicate eye areas. Incisions are typically made in the natural eyelid crease, or inside the lids and they are virtually undetectable. Most of the swelling and sensitivity you experience after surgery will subside within 2-3 days.
We may recommend other procedures or fillers in conjunction with eyelid surgery to further enhance your look. Dr. Vendetti will prepare a custom treatment plan based on your goals and provide both surgical and non-surgical options to help you achieve the results you want.
