Eyelid Surgery

An Elevare MD eyelid surgery can go a long way in restoring or making your eyes one of your best features. It can eliminate signs of aging and rejuvenate your entire appearance, typically without ever having to step into a hospital.  Eyelid surgery is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the United States each year. To minimize and eliminate visible scarring, Elevare MD can use hidden incisions to perform the surgery, which can:

  • Eliminate excess or sagging skin of upper and lower eyelids
  • Eliminate under eyelid bagging
  • Remove bulging fat from around the eyes
  • Correction of ptosis (elevation of drooping eyelids)

Eyelid surgery is often combined with other cosmetic procedures such as facelift or brow lift. To achieve the best results, practicing good skin care after the procedure is important.

The Elevare MD Experience

Dr. Michael DeWolfe is Elevare MD’s Board Certified, fellowship-trained plastic and reconstructive surgeon. He is an expert in working with the delicate skin that surrounds the eye. Based on your goals, Dr. DeWolfe will determine the best approach to take and fully explain the procedure, what you can expect to achieve and may make recommendations for additional procedures or treatments.

Eyelid surgery is typically performed in the office under local anesthesia or IV sedation. The procedure can often be completed in less than an hour. Thanks to advanced techniques and Dr. DeWolfe’s skill and experience, bandages over the eyes typically aren’t necessary after the procedure. Any incisions made will be virtually invisible once fully healed.

The Elevare MD team will make sure you have all the recovery resources you need, along with any prescriptions for managing any discomfort you may experience. Patients can typically return to most normal activity within about a week.

Of course, we will always be here to answer any questions or concerns.
