What is Eyelid Surgery?
Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can help reduce the appearance of visible signs of aging in the eye area, such as:
- Loose skin in the upper eyelids
- Pockets of fat in the lower eyelids
- Drooping or sagging skin on both the upper and lower eyelids
In some cases, eyelid surgery can be paired with additional procedures in order to help the patient maximize their results. These options can be discussed with Mr. Salerno during your consultation.
How is Eyelid Surgery Performed?
The extent of your blepharoplasty may depend on several factors such as the level of correction needed, your surgical preferences, your aesthetic goals, and more. The upper or eyelids may be operated on, or both. Any necessary incisions are typically placed according to the surgical plan created prior to your procedure. Mr. Salerno and our medical team can explain what you can expect and how to prepare for your procedure.
Who is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Men and women who have excess skin and/or fat in the upper, lower, or both eyelids and who are seeking to correct this cosmetic condition with surgical intervention may be candidates for eyelid surgery. The best way to determine your candidacy for this procedure is to schedule a consultation at our Melbourne office with Mr. Salerno and our medical team.
What is Recovery Like?
This process can be different for everyone as no two patients heal at the same rate after surgery, but some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort may be experienced afterward. During your consultation, Mr. Salerno and our medical team will discuss how long you should take off from work to recover after your surgery as well as any necessary aftercare for your incision sites.
