As we get older, it is common for our eyelids to sag, droop, or appear puffy. This happens when the muscles that support the eyelids stretch and weaken, causing excess fat to accumulate above and below the eyelids. The ultimate result is that your eyelids can look tired or baggy. If left unaddressed, sagging skin around the eyes can eventually affect your side or peripheral vision.
Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure that can help your eyes look more rested and youthful. As a Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of South Florida and a former President of the Tampa Bay Ophthalmologic Society, Dr. Geoffrey M. Kwitko is a leading authority on oculoplastic surgical procedures, including blepharoplasty. He has helped countless patients in the Clearwater, FL area achieve dramatically improved appearance of the eyelids, and is ready to put his experience to work for you.
Blepharoplasty is a procedure performed by an eye surgeon that involves removing excess fat, skin, and muscle that creates bags under the lower eyelids and drooping of the upper eyelids. It is done with minimal discomfort, and with short recovery time. In addition to improving the look of the eyes, it can mitigate vision problems caused by sagging of the eyelids.
Before your surgery, Dr. Kwitko will consult with you to answer any questions you may have, and ensure that you are a good candidate for the blepharoplasty surgical procedure. This involves a vision examination, review of your medical history, and photography of the eyes to prepare for the procedure.
Blepharoplasty can help rejuvenate your eyelids, making them appear more youthful and alert.
