I commonly get asked about the appearance of looking sad or angry or tired and a lot of that has to do with the normal aging process around the eyes. So, what we generally offer for these patients is eyelid surgery also known as blepharoplasty. During a blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, both the upper and the lower eyelids can be addressed to remove excess skin and even some excess fat in order to give you a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. If you think you may be a candidate for blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, come see us in consultation.

Blepharoplasty in Naples

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 elect eyelid surgery.
Dr. Paul M. Gardner and Dr. Leo M. Baccaro begin all eyelid surgery procedures by meeting with the patient personally in a one-on-one consultation to discuss al aesthetic concerns or goals they may have. Dr. Gardner or Dr. Baccaro will then use this information to tailor a treatment plan that will specifically meet all of the patient’s unique needs. Your surgeon may suggest the procedure be done in their office under oral sedation, or, if the surgery is more extensive, in their 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, your surgeon will remove excess fat, muscle, and skin in order to tighten up the 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.

Recovering from Eyelid Surgery

Following eyelid surgery, which is performed on an outpatient basis, your surgeon 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. Patients are also advised to limit sun exposure, and should wear sunglasses and sunblock whenever they come into contact with sunlight.
Blepharoplasty is a complicated elective surgical procedure that can develop complications. Gardner Plastic Surgery has a long-held track record in performing successful cosmetic eyelid surgeries, making our office one of the most sought-after eyelid surgery practices in the Naples, Florida area.
