Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, addresses the aging of the upper or lower eyelids, or both.
Dr. Dabbah’s Boca Raton eyelid surgery rejuvenates the upper eyelids by removing excess skin that is creating heaviness on the eye. In addition, Dr. Dabbah removes the fat sometimes found at the inner aspect of the eye, by the nose, giving the patient a clean contour to the eye and taking away that aged look.
The puffiness of the lower eyelids is not only fat herniating through the muscle, but loss of muscle tone as well. Depending on the quality of the skin, the lower eyelids may have lost elasticity and Dr. Dabbah helps to tighten that with peels or laser. Optimally, the patient will begin using medical-grade skin care at home, like ZO or Environ products, to keep that rejuvenated look into the future.
In addition to making the patient look tired, if left too long, the line created becomes a crease in the skin, yet another characteristic of aging. Dr. Dabbah’s treats the fat, muscle and skin to alleviate that tired, aged look to give the patient that natural youthful appearance that is Dr. Dabbah’s signature.
Eyelid surgery can be done in conjunction with a face and necklift for total surgical facial rejuvenation. And, of course, at that time, fat grafting can be done to give the face the fullness associated with youth, as can a medium-depth TCA peel.
Additional non-surgical procedures to blepharoplasty surgery is Botox or Newtox, as well as deeper peels and lasers to tighten the skin and fine lines around the eyes. One additional option which we find necessary is quality, medical-grade skin care. Skin care is vital to maintain the beauty that our patients are working hard to attain.
