Dr. Gardner has proven himself as an outstanding cosmetic surgeon who boasts years of experience performing eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty. As a board-certified Naples plastic surgeon and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Gardner possesses the exceptional surgical skills, artistic touch and high level of finesse to achieve beautiful results for his Naples eyelid surgery patients.
Eyelid surgery is an advanced plastic surgery procedure that treats sagging skin around the upper and lower eyelid areas, as well as prominent under-eye bags, sinking eyelids or ptosis (drooping eyelids). After undergoing blepharoplasty, patients often look more youthful and rested, achieving a dramatically rejuvenated appearance.
Sagging skin around the eyelid area can cause patients to constantly look fatigued, despite being well rested. In many instances, aesthetic eye conditions are genetic, such as ptosis, under-eye circles or drooping eyelids. Because these conditions are caused by laxity in the skin, few topical treatments can affect them, causing many patients to undergo eyelid surgery.
As a leading Naples blepharoplasty specialist, Dr. Gardner begins all eyelid surgery procedures by personally meeting with the patient during an initial consultation. He strives to understand any aesthetic concerns and goals for the procedure so he can tailor a treatment plan that will specifically meet all of the patient's needs. Dr. Gardner performs all procedures at a state-of-the-art surgical suite, which is endorsed by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAASF).
The procedure begins with a small incision along the crease of the upper eyelid and/or along the eyelash line of the lower lid. Then, Dr. Gardner removes excess fat, muscle and skin in order to tighten up sagging skin and achieve a smoother, more refreshed appearance. He may also strengthen muscle tone in patients who suffer from ptosis, or droopy eyelids, to treat obstructed vision.
Following eyelid surgery, which is performed on an outpatient basis, Dr. Gardner will apply bandages and lubrication to the eyes and give the patient and their caregiver a detailed list of instructions to ensure a healthy recovery. Patients are encouraged to regularly apply eye drops and cold compresses as well as elevate their heads in order to alleviate swelling and promote healing. While advised they limit sun exposure, patients are asked to wear sunglasses and sunblock whenever they come into contact with sunlight.
Blepharoplasty is a complicated elective surgical procedure that can develop complications. Dr. Gardner holds extensive experience and expertise in performing eyelid surgery, making him one of the most sought-after eyelid surgeons in the Naples area.
