Tired appearing eyes with puffiness or “bags” around the eyes can be one of the first signs of aging of the face.
An Eyelid Lift or Blepharoplasty removes the excess skin on your upper and lower eyelids and removes excess fat from around your eyes. The result is a more open, rested appearance to your eyes. Dr. Fedele performs an Eyelid Lift procedure to enhance or improve the appearance of your eyes to give you a more rested youthful look.
Eyelid rejuvenation can include additional procedures to improve the appearance of the eyes. Dr. Fedele performs these other procedures which may include a Brow lift (Endoscopic Technique) to raise a drooping eyebrow, and Laser Skin Resurfacing of the lower eyelid to smooth out the fine lines around the eyes to further enhance the results of the Eyelid Lift.
The procedure is typically performed under sedation or “twighlight” anesthesia as an outpatient at an ambulatory surgery center. The Eyelid Lift procedure takes about one to two hours and you will spend about two hours in the recovery room and then be discharged home when stable. In the first three to four days you will have the most bruising and swelling, but by applying ice and keeping your head elevated you can diminish this swelling. Most people are back in the “public eye” in about ten to fourteen days and back to exercising and full activities in four to six weeks.

All surgical procedures carry risks and Dr. Fedele will spend time with you at your consultation to explain the procedure in detail and any risks involved. This website is designed to give you some basic information about an Eyelid Lift and is not a substitute for a comprehensive consultation and exam with Dr. Fedele.
