All signs of aging on the face cause a dull, older-than-you-are, worn look. You wake up refreshed (sometimes) but look like you haven't slept at all. This is because, as we age, we gain a heaviness of the eyelids themselves.
If that wasn't frustrating enough, we get wrinkles and sagging skin around the eye area. One or the other of these developments doesn't always lend itself to a tired or aged look. In combination however, these unwanted new features can betray our inner energy and vitality and make us look fatigued and sad. Functionally, these changes can make it more difficult to see. They can also make it more difficult to make ourselves up to face the day! Elevating your lids and restoring the surrounding skin energizes your look to compliment how you truly feel and the way you want to take on the world. An eyelid lift or upper blepharoplasty, achieves this restoration for patients.
At Troiano Facial Plastics, our primary focus is patient care paired with aesthetic excellence. Led by Chelsea Troiano, MD, our dedicated team offers a boutique experience, and the finest blepharoplasty in Palm Beach. We will personalize your aesthetic care plan and strive to deliver your ideal outcomes.
This procedure is used to address sagging, droopiness, or puffiness in the upper or lower eyelid. Blepharoplasty provides a youthful, bright, lifted eyelid look. Very precise incisions are used to remove skin, and sometimes fat. After the procedure and healing, the eyelid has a tighter, smoother appearance.
An upper blepharoplasty focuses on the top eyelid and can correct loose, droopy skin. This is used as a cosmetic surgery or sometimes for functional reasons if the skin sags to the point of affecting the vision. It can be combined with other procedures to obtain an optimal result.
This procedure can address under-eye puffiness by removing fat or a sunken appearance by repositioning fat. It is often performed via incisions inside the lower eyelid resulting in minimal to no scarring. The procedure also addresses excess and sagging skin, and if this is performed, an incision on the skin is made to remove the extra skin but usually heals beautifully.
If patients have concerns in both the lower and upper eyelids, a blepharoplasty can be performed in both areas during a single surgery. This offers a convenient single recovery period and can save time and costs.
Look more awake and alert in addition to addressing wrinkles and sagginess. Blepharoplasty is usually an in-office surgery with results that are bright, youthful, and refreshed. Our West Palm Beach Blepharoplasty patients enjoy:

Of course, patients continue to age after the procedure and therefore the aging process on the lids begins again once healing is complete.
