Eyelid Surgery Candidacy

Serving Bonita Springs, Estero, Fort Myers, Marco Island, & Naples, Florida

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is an incredibly effective way to restore an energetic and youthful look to the eyes. Targeting the areas around the eyes, eyelid surgery helps soften crow’s feet, removes dark circles and puffy skin from below the eyes, and raises the lids themselves into a more alert and attractive position. The best way to learn if this procedure is right for your particular needs is through a one-on-one consultation with board-certified Naples plastic surgeon Dr. Manuel Peña.

To schedule your eyelid surgery consultation, please contact Peña Plastic Surgery online or by calling 239-348-7362 today. Based in Naples, Dr. Peña welcomes patients from Fort Myers, Bonita Springs, and all surrounding areas of Florida.

Eyelid Surgery Considerations

To be a good candidate for eyelid surgery you should be:

  • A nonsmoker who is in generally good health
  • Free of any serious eye conditions
  • Able to take time to rest during a brief recovery period
  • Willing to closely follow all pre and postoperative instructions

It is also important to have realistic expectations when considering eyelid surgery. During your initial consultation Dr. Peña will listen to your concerns, discuss the benefits and limitation of eyelid surgery, and help you determine if it is the best procedure for your needs.

Combining Procedures

Eyelid surgery is commonly combined with other treatment options for complete facial rejuvenation. Depending on your specific concerns, Dr. Peña may recommend combining eyelid surgery with:

  • Facelift
  • Forehead lift
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic
  • Dermal fillers

Combining procedures allows Dr. Peña to address several areas of concern and can help produce a look that is more youthful, attractive, and satisfactory.
