Eyelid Lift in Fort Myers
The eyelid skin is thin and often is the first area to show the signs of aging. The results of aging on the eyelids are:
- Excess skin weighing down the eyelid and covering the eye
- Bulging excess fat
- A tired or angry look
These concerns can often be address with upper and/or lower lid blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).
Upper Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty)
By removing excess skin and occasionally a little bit of fat the youthful crease of the upper lid can be restored. Removing hanging, drooping skin opens up the eyes creating a rested, energetic look. This is accomplished easily with the procedure performed in the office under local anesthesia or in the outpatient surgical center under IV sedation anesthesia. The sutures rest in the natural crease of the upper eyelid. You can return to work or play 3-7 days following an upper lid blepharoplasty.
Lower Eyelidplasty (blepharoplasty)
The lower lids often have lax skin and occasionally protruding fat. These can be addressed yielding a tighter more youthful appearance. It is paramount to accomplish this without any distortion to the lower lid itself. Dr. Stevens performs all the different forms of lower lid surgery and will tailor his recommendations according to your needs and anatomy. You can return to work or play in 3-7 days following lower lid blepharoplasty.
