EYELID LIFT “Blepharoplasty” IN BOSTON
Eyelid Surgery, also called “blepharoplasty” is great for patients who have noticed excess skin on the upper and/or lower eyelids. It’s a great option for those who feel like their eyes are making them look “tired” even when well rested, are sick of their eye make-up getting smeared on loose skin (or not seen because of sagging upper lid skin), and/or have puffy, tired eyes.
Oftentimes, it is our eyes that dim and first reveal our age. Upper eyelid surgery is a simple, in-office procedure that addresses heavy lids, sagging skin, and “fat bags.”
-Dr. Jaimie DeRosa
Eyelid surgery is the remedy for what ages our eyes. As we grow older the eyelid skin stretches, muscles weaken, and fat pockets become more pronounced and bulge. This can look like dark circles, extra eyelid skin, baggy pouches or somewhere in between and can affect both upper and lower lids. During your blepharoplasty your DeRosa Clinic surgeon can remove excess skin, muscle, and fat from the eyelids—depending on your needs. The procedure returns the natural contour of the eyelid, creating a more alert and youthful appearance. Eyelid Surgery can correct excess skin or fat in the upper and/or lower eyelids.
Eyelift surgery can treat:
Loose & Sagging Skin
Under eye Bags
During your consultation with one of our DeRosa Clinic Facial Plastic Surgeons, they will listen to your facial concerns and goals. It is important for you to be candid about any other medical conditions or history that may impact an optimal result. Next, the surgeon will perform a detailed history and physical examination and discuss her impression and recommendations with you. During this consultation (or anytime thereafter) you should be sure to ask any unanswered questions and voice any concerns. It is important to us that you always feel comfortable with your surgery plan and have a good understanding of the goals and objectives prior to undergoing any treatment or procedure.
The results of eyelid surgery are dramatic and will leave you looking brighter, more awake and rested. While it is one of the simplest plastic surgery options, it is also one of the most effective in restoring youthfulness to the face. Additionally, eyelid surgery provides long-lasting results that remain for years.
DeRosa Clinic recently announced that it is an AAAASF Accredited Surgery Center and the only one of its kind in Boston. Surgeries are performed at our Newbury Street location in the Back Bay under a “twilight sleep”, otherwise known as IV sedation. You can have your surgery performed in our comfortable, private clinic where you can safely have your procedure done and head home comfortably and discreetly. These IV Sedation surgeries are performed by one of the DeRosa Clinic facial plastic surgeons along with a board-certified Physician Anesthesiologist.
As always, our doctors use a conservative approach so that all her otoplasty surgery patients are assured a rejuvenated, natural appearance—and it all takes place right in Boston as an in-office procedure at the DeRosa Clinic.
