Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) in Jupiter, FL
A refreshed look to your face is often the most noticeable result when eye bags are improved with blepharoplasty. Located in Jupiter, FL, Koger Cosmetic Clinic and Medspa, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Koger, performs eyelid surgery for Palm Beach County residents, including West Palm Beach, Vero Beach and Wellington.
What is a Blepharoplasty?
Droopy eyelids can make you look older and can also impair your vision. Some people want and need to correct these issues. Blepharoplasty corrects these problems and also removes puffiness and bags from under the eyes that can make you look worn out and tired all the time, even when you are well rested. This procedure cannot alter dark circles or fine lines around the eyes, nor can it change sagging eyebrows. Though blepharoplasty is often performed as a single procedure, Dr. Koger can also recommend that eyelid surgery be combined with a brow lift, facelift or skin resurfacing to achieve optimal results.
The Best Candidates for Blepharoplasty
Under-eye bags and sagging upper eyelids that come with age can be corrected through cosmetic eyelid surgery. By changing how you look, facial plastic surgery can help change how you feel about yourself. Blepharoplasty can really help you by addressing premature signs of aging that undermine your self-confidence by smoothing the appearance of under-eye bags or puffiness, and tightening and removing extra eyelid skin.
Planning Your Blepharoplasty
One of the first areas of the face to exhibit signs of aging is the area around the eyes. Fortunately, when it comes to planning for your blepharoplasty, the eyelids heal remarkably quickly and scars are usually quite inconspicuous. Why not schedule your consultation now? During your consultation, Dr. Koger will explain the procedure in great detail and you can count on Dr. Koger as the most highly credentialed plastic surgeon in the area.
Preparing for Your Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty is a relatively minor cosmetic surgery procedure that can refresh the appearance of your face and leave you looking years younger. Leading up to your surgery, you should limit or eliminate alcohol consumption and smoking. Dr. Koger and his amazing staff will make certain that you have a detailed list of all your post-operative needs. You should arrange for someone to drive you to and from your blepharoplasty procedure.
The Blepharoplasty Procedure
In upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Koger first marks the individual lines and creases of the lids in order to keep the scars as invisible as possible along these natural folds. The incision is made, and excess fat is removed or repositioned. Dr. Koger then removes the loose muscle and skin. Fine sutures are used to close the incisions, thereby minimizing the visibility of any scar.
In lower eyelid surgery, Dr. Koger makes the incision in a completely inconspicuous site along the lash line and smile creases of the lower lid. Excess fat, muscle and skin are trimmed away before the incision is closed with fine sutures. Eyelid puffiness caused primarily by excess fat may also be corrected by Dr. Koger with a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. The incision, in this case, is made inside the lower eyelid and excess fatty material is removed. When sutures are used to close this kind of incision, they are invisible to the eye. They are also commonly self-dissolving and leave no visible scar. Under normal conditions, a blepharoplasty can take from one to two hours.

After Your Blepharoplasty
Getting back to normal following your blepharoplasty with Dr. Koger is surprisingly quick and easy. Immediately following eyelid surgery, the incision sites will appear red with some minor bumpiness. You may have some swelling and discoloration, but generally, within a week or two any bruising and swelling should have gone away, and your eyelid surgery should be yielding great results.
