A Solution for Droopy Eyelids
Residents of St. Pete Beach, Florida, who have droopy eyelids that obstruct their peripheral vision may be good candidates for eyelid surgery at St. Michael’s Eye & Laser Institute in Largo. Our eyelid surgery techniques have led to positive outcomes for patients throughout the Tampa Bay area. Our skilled surgeons can safely and effectively lift drooping eyelids, reduce puffiness in the upper and lower lids, and remove excess skin, restoring your field of vision and giving you a younger, more vibrant appearance.
What Does Eyelid Surgery Entail?
Also know blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is performed under local anesthesia. Your surgeon will create a small incision in the fold of the upper eyelid and trim away excess skin. As the incision is closed, your eyelid will be tightened and smoothed. Your stitches will be removed after about a week, and you can expect to see the full results of your surgery after about six weeks.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Good candidates for eyelid surgery are patients who are healthy and have no medical conditions that can impair healing. If you have any of the following conditions, we may be able to treat you:
- Bags under the eyes
- Sagging skin that disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid and obstructs peripheral vision
- Droopy lower lids that reveal white below the iris
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower lid
