Eyelid Lift in Port St. Lucie FL

The eyes are the window to the soul and are an important part of how people see you and perhaps how you see yourself. It could be that your eyes make you look older than you are. If this is the case, then eyelid surgery may be right for you.

Upper Eyelid Lift

Droopy eyelids are a major reason why some people consider eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to remove and tighten excess eyelid skin for a more alert, youthful appearance. As skin ages, it gradually loses its elasticity. A lack of elasticity plus the constant pull from gravity causes excessive skin to collect on the upper (and/or lower) eyelids. The fat that cushions the eyeball from the skull can also cause bulges in the eyelids. During a pre-operative evaluation of factors such as your underlying facial muscle structure, bone structure, and the symmetry of your eyebrows, Dr. Viggiano will decide how much skin, muscle, and/or fat to remove.

Lower Eyelid Lift

Excess skin on the lower eyelid causes wrinkles and bulges. If you have puffy, sagging “bags” under the eyes, it is likely due to herniated fat that collects beneath the eyes. This can become more pronounced over time but can also affect people in their twenties, making them appear older than they are. Lower eyelid surgery can be an excellent solution to correct eyelid bags. Through tiny incisions, Dr. Viggiano will remove or reposition fat to create a smooth, natural contour beneath the eyelid.

Lower Eyelid Resurfacing

Skin resurfacing treats wrinkles and fine lines, brown spots, sun damage, and skin texture issues. Resurfacing creates a controlled skin injury, followed by recovery. The skin’s innate repair mechanisms lead to increased skin collagen content and thickness.The ablation skin resurfacing eyelid surgery is a wonderful way to restore the youthful appearance of your eyes and rid yourself of that tired appearance. Conventional lower eyelid surgery requires incisions beneath the lashes. Lower eyelid skin ablation treatment is performed without an incision!
