Eyelid Lift Surgery Boca Raton

The aesthetic effects of aging on the eyes can be a thing of the past with FSIBR’s eyelid surgery that enhances the appearance of your eyes to give you a more youthful look.

Is an Eyelid Lift right for you?

Aging around the eyes is a common concern for both men and women. Droopiness and redundant skin of the upper lids can develop, while puffy bags and wrinkling can form under the eyes. This droopiness in the upper eyelids can also negatively affect vision and create an unappealing cosmetic appearance for some.  

The ideal solution to these complaints is a surgical cosmetic procedure called blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift surgery. Dr. Melyssa Hancock and Dr. Jaclyn A. Klimczak can skillfully perform eyelid surgery at the Facial Surgery Institute of Boca Raton to address all these cosmetic and functional concerns. Their blepharoplasty procedure results improve confidence and add quality to the lives of the many patients they consult.

Tired-looking eyes that do not improve with sleep may be due to sagging skin and puffiness that can be solved with surgery. Eyelid surgery, known medically as blepharoplasty, is a procedure that removes excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper and lower lids. 

It can be done on the upper eyelids to raise hooded or droopy lids and can be performed on lower lids to remove bags and tighten loose skin. The procedure results in a more rested appearance and may be combined with other cosmetic surgeries for optimal improvement. An additional enhancement can be seen with double eyelid surgery that creates a crease in the upper lid to give the eyes a more rounded appearance.

If people often tell you that you look tired, even when you feel rested, it might be due to puffy or sagging skin around the eyes that make you look tired or even grumpy. Blepharoplasty eyelid surgery may resolve this if you are:

  • In good health and a non-smoker
  • Have no medical conditions that may adversely affect your surgery and recovery
  • Have realistic expectations of the procedure

What is Eyelid Lift surgery recovery like?

The recovery from eyelid surgery is rather quick! Immediately after the procedure, you will likely have swelling and bruising around the eyes. Stitches are generally removed within one week after surgery and many patients choose to return to work around this time. Dr. Hancock and Dr. Klimczak will discuss the post-operative eyelid surgery recovery expectations and instructions in more detail during a consultation.
