Eyelid Surgery Fort Myers

Eyelid skin is normally smooth, but over time, the eyelid stretches, the fat bulges, and the muscles weaken. These changes are most often caused by age, heredity and sun damage.

Eyelid skin is normally smooth, but over time, the eyelid stretches, the fat bulges, and the muscles weaken. These changes are most often caused by age, heredity and sun damage. Surgery to improve the appearance of the eyelids is called blepharoplasty. This procedure can be done to both the upper and lower eyelids.

Upper lid blepharoplasty may be a covered procedure by insurance if we can prove the sagging skin obstructs peripheral vision. The excess skin and fat are removed from a small incision hidden in the natural eyelid crease. If the upper eyelid is droopy, the muscle that raises the lid may need to be tightened.

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can be performed through an incision on the inner surface of the eyelid to remove fat. If excess skin needs to be removed as well, a small incision may instead be made just below the lower eyelid lashes. Often laser resurfacing or a chemical peel may be used to further smooth and tighten the lower lid skin.
