Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty on the Treasure Coast
Wrinkling, drooping, and puffiness of the upper and lower eyelids are part of the natural aging process. However, these issues can make you look and feel older, and may even lead to problems with vision obstruction. An eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, procedure with Dr. Lipschitz can help restore the shape and contour of your eyelids to give you radiant and refreshed eyes.
Why You May Consider Eyelid Surgery in Stuart Florida
Most eyelid surgery candidates are at least 35 years of age but if droopy, baggy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have the surgery at a younger age. Many patients have eyelid surgery performed at an earlier age than other procedures because the eyes are one of the first features of the face to show signs of aging. Eyelid surgery can be performed during a mommy makeover and in some cases combined with a brow lift
Upper Eyelid Surgery
Florida plastic surgeon Dr. Lipschitz may recommend upper eyelid surgery if you are struggling with one or more of the following issues:
- Excess, drooping skin
- Wrinkling of the upper eyelid
- Vision obstruction due to a sagging eyelid
- Congenital disorders (Dermatochalasis, Ptosis)
Lower Eyelid Surgery
Some common issues that can be resolved with lower eyelid surgery include:
- Puffy bags beneath the eyes
- Dark circles or discoloration
- Folding of the lower eyelid
- A tired appearance
Not all patients require both upper and lower eyelid surgery. Blepharoplasty in Stuart Florida can be performed on either one or both eyelids, depending on your condition.
A Brief Walkthrough of Your Eyelid Surgery Procedure
During the consultation, Dr. Lipschitz will carefully examine your eyelids and listen to your goals and results expectations. With your permission, he may also discuss your case with your ophthalmologist to get a better idea of your condition.
Depending on what is discussed during your consultation, Dr. Lipschitz will make an incision in the natural creases and folds of your upper or lower eyelids to help conceal the appearance of incision lines. Dr. Avron’s philosophy is to rejuvenate the eyelids by restoring your natural eyelid shape and contour. He believes the old techniques of performing eyelid surgery in Stuart, Florida by over-excising skin, muscle, and fat only make the eyes age more rapidly.
You may experience bruising and swelling once you get out of your surgery with Dr. Lipschitz, but this will continue to fade with time. Mild dryness, light sensitivity, and temporary blurred vision may occur, but Dr. Lipschitz encourages you to contact him with any concerns you may have during the healing process. You will be able to return to work in just a matter of days, looking younger and feeling great about your new appearance.
