Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) in Naples, FL
The eyelids are often the first to show signs of aging and end up projecting a perpetually tired or sad appearance. To correct this, blepharoplasty can be performed to remove excess skin and reposition facial fat for a more youthful appearance around the eyes. The experts at Aesthetic Surgery Center of Naples, FL, offer upper and lower eyelid surgery for patients seeking a long-lasting cosmetic solution.

Blepharoplasty Different Techniques
There are different types of techniques and approaches to blepharoplasty, depending on the patient’s needs. Here at Aesthetic Surgery Center, our surgical team can address the upper eyelids, the lower lids, or both if needed. We also offer non-surgical treatments. Although blepharoplasty can refer to surgery on either the upper or lower lids, the surgical process for each is quite different.
Upper blepharoplasty is beneficial when the skin begins to sag and droop over the eyes. Sagging of the upper eyelids creates a hooded appearance and can obscure the youthful eyelid crease. The eyelids may also feel heavy due to excess fatty tissue and skin.
During an upper blepharoplasty, the surgeon removes excess tissue and contours the upper lids to resolve any cosmetic issues.
Lower blepharoplasty corrects bulging pouches beneath the eyes, often known as “eye bags”. As the skin thins over time, the fat pads beneath the eyes begin to protrude, causing a person to look chronically tired and older than they might feel.
Typically, the fat pads are either removed or repositioned. Sometimes fat transfer to the hollows under the eyes can treat tear trough deformities and restore volume to the eyelid/cheek junction where it becomes hollow.
Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift
A non-surgical eyelid lift usually refers to fat injections or laser resurfacing for wrinkle improvement, or a combination of both. Sometimes, Botox injections can be used to adjust eyebrow position, which in turn may alleviate upper eyelid heaviness.
The upper blepharoplasty procedure is performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation. Prior to the procedure, patients should schedule an eyelid surgery consultation with one of our professionals to discuss desired upper eyelid surgery creases, goals, risks, recovery time, and more. During the surgery, small incisions in the natural creases of the eyelids are made, and excess skin, fat, and muscle are carefully removed as needed. The remaining tissue is then re-contoured to create a more youthful appearance.
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is almost always performed with intravenous sedation in our operating room. Sometimes incisions are made inside the lower eyelid and less frequently, from outside the lower eyelid below the lash line.
In some cases, laser resurfacing may be used to reduce wrinkles around the eyes. The laser treatment helps improve the texture and tone of the skin in order to create a smoother, fresher look. After surgery, patients can expect swelling and bruising, the majority of which usually resolves within two weeks. It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions for post-operative care in order to ensure optimal results.
Blepharoplasty patients in Naples, FL, can expect some swelling and bruising in the days following their surgery. Our plastic surgeons will monitor these symptoms and adjust the treatment plan if needed. If droopy eyelids are an issue, vision may be temporarily affected; however, this typically resolves quickly with no long-term effects on the field of vision. Patients who undergo blepharoplasty for cosmetic reasons may return to work or social activities after about a week.
Blepharoplasty Cost in Naples, FL
The average cost of eyelid surgery in Naples, FL, is $3500 to $12,000 (depending on whether upper and/or lower eyelid surgery is being performed, if laser resurfacing is needed, ptosis repair is warranted, and whether fat transfer is indicated).

Under-eye bags have a genetic component and will worsen with age. We will review your candidacy during the consultation to see if you can have this procedure performed in your 20s.
It is normal to have mild blurry vision and dryness for at least the first 2 weeks after blepharoplasty. This improves with time.
There is also a chance of scarring, but because eyelid skin is so thin, the scars heal exceptionally well. The scars may be slightly red and noticeable upon close inspection during the first few months. Beyond that, they fade to fine white lines and blend in beautifully.
Our team utilizes lasers during eyelid surgery to seal off blood vessels as the incision is made. As a result of using the laser, bleeding, bruising, and swelling are all minimized. The precise and controlled incisions that are made during this procedure result in a newly created eyelid crease that is very inconspicuous and natural.
Generally, you will be able to drive your car in about two to three days following your eyelid surgery. This is, of course, provided that you are not still taking narcotic pain medicine. Some patients have initial temporary blurred vision, which may make driving difficult.
