If you feel self-conscious about how drooping eyelids have aged your appearance, you may benefit from eyelid surgery.
Blepharoplasty performed at Fishman & Sheridan in Leesburg, FL, tightens and lifts the eyelids for a rejuvenating effect.
Why should I consider eyelid surgery?
Eyelid Surgery Can Have Life-Changing Benefits
Rejuvenate Your Appearance
Your eyelid surgery will be completely personalized to address your needs and achieve the most flattering results. Addressing sagging eyelids can significantly improve your appearance.
Improve Your Field of Vision
Drooping upper eyelid skin can affect your ability to see clearly. You can restore a complete field of vision by removing the excess skin.
Refine Eyelids after Lesion Removal
Skin cancer lesion removal can leave noticeable scarring. Blepharoplasty can be performed to reduce or eliminate the scar.
Eyelid Surgery: The Procedure
Strides in modern medicine have improved eyelid surgery techniques for increased precision and effectiveness. During a blepharoplasty procedure, we can remove excess fat, skin, and muscle tissue from the upper and lower eyelids, resulting in improved contour and unobstructed sight.
Eyelid Surgery Risks & Complications
As with any procedure, there are risks associated with eyelid surgery. While serious complications are rare, some patients may develop minor infection, irritation, numbness, or temporary vision problems. To ensure you are informed, our physicians can review these risks during your consultation.
Eyelid Surgery Recovery & Results
The recovery period from eyelid surgery lasts several weeks, and most patients are able to return to work seven to ten days later. Some patients may experience minor side effects, including light sensitivity and blurry vision. Our staff can provide at-home instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
Sun damage and genetics can accelerate the aging process around the eyes. To reduce puffiness and create a more youthful appearance, we can perform lower eyelid surgery. During the procedure, we can carefully remove excess fat and skin from under the eye, transforming your appearance.
Upper Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid surgery can address a drooping eyelid that impedes vision. During this procedure your doctor can remove excess fat and tissue that sags over the brow line, for a tighter, more rejuvenated look. Upper eyelid surgery is often combined with other procedures such as lower eyelid surgery.
Eyelid Surgery Cost
The average cost of eyelid surgery is relatively low in comparison to other forms of cosmetic surgery. The total cost of treatment is determined by several factors, including the type of medical testing required, anesthesia and surgical facility fees, and expenses associated with medication.
