Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Naples Plastic Surgery

Blepharoplasty is an advanced plastic surgery procedure that treats sagging skin around the upper and lower eyelid areas. It can also treat prominent under-eye bags and ptosis (drooping eyelids). Following eyelid surgery, our male patients often look younger and more rested, achieving a dramatically improved appearance.

If you’re seeking a solution tailored to masculine aesthetic, allow me to introduce you to blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. During our consultation, we’ll dive in to your specific concerns.

Blepharoplasty in Naples

Sagging skin around the eyelid area can cause our male patients to look constantly fatigued, despite being well rested. In many instances, aesthetic eye conditions are genetic, such as ptosis and under-eye circles. Because these conditions are caused by laxity in the skin, few topical treatments can have any significant effect. This leaves eyelid surgery as one of the only effective methods to treat them.

Dr. Paul Gardner, Dr. Leo Baccaro, Dr. Mark Walsh, and Dr. Andrew Bonett begin all eyelid surgery procedures by meeting with their respective patients personally to discuss any aesthetic concerns or goals they may have. This information is then used to tailor a treatment plan designed to specifically meet all of the patient’s unique needs. The surgeon may suggest that the procedure be conducted in their office under oral sedation, or, if the surgery is more extensive, in the practice’s state-of-the-art surgical suite, which is endorsed by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAASF)

Once Dr. Gardner, Dr. Baccaro, Dr. Walsh, Dr. Bonett, and their team prep the patient for surgery, 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, the surgeon removes excess fat, muscle and skin in order to tighten up the sagging eyelids and achieve a smoother, more refreshed appearance. In patients who suffer from ptosis, or droopy eyelids, the surgeon may also strengthen muscle tone in order to treat obstructed vision.

Recovering from Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. Bandages and lubrication are applied to the eyes, and a detailed list of instructions will be given to the patient and his caregiver to ensure a healthy recovery. Patients are encouraged to regularly apply eye drops and cold compresses, and to elevate their heads in order to alleviate swelling and promote healing. Sun exposure should be limited during recovery, and 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. Naples Plastic Surgery has a stellar reputation for expertise in performing cosmetic eyelid surgery, making it one of the most sought-after eyelid surgery practices in Naples.
