Eyelid Surgery

See the World Through Youthful Looking Eyelids

If you have a perpetually tired look to your eyes, removing droopy, sagging or puffy eyelid skin can make a vast difference in your appearance.  Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, rejuvenates the eye area, leaving you looking well rested, youthful and awake.  For patients whose sight is impaired by sagging eyelids, this procedure will also help to restore vision.

The Eyelid Surgery Procedure at Coastal Cosmetic Center

Consultation

Your initial consultation will review your personal goals for eyelid surgery and will help you determine the best treatment plan for your procedure. The board certified plastic surgeons at Coastal Cosmetic Center will help you visualize your results with before and after pictures of local patients who have undergone eyelid surgery. Additionally, all applicable costs for your procedure will be reviewed during this appointment.

Procedure

Surgery is available to correct both the upper and lower eyelid areas. Incisions are placed along the natural creases of the eyelids and the extra fat, skin, and muscle is removed. This outpatient procedure is performed under general anesthesia at Coastal Cosmetic Center’s nationally accredited surgery center in Jacksonville, FL. Generally, patients can expect eyelid surgery to take less than three hours to complete.

Recovery

Side effects consist of bruising, swelling and light sensitivity—all of which will dissipate within ten days post-procedure. Contact lenses can be worn immediately after eyelid surgery, although the use of any eye make-up is restricted until after the sutures are removed.

The presence of sagging eyelids and dark under-eye circles can impact your appearance significantly by making you look tired and emphasizing your age. Eyelid surgery can produce dramatic results by highlighting one of your most important features.
