When to Choose Eyelid Surgery (and When Not To!)

Although eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is more popular as a cosmetic surgical procedure, Dr. Croley and the rest of the team here at our Ocala ophthalmology practice also perform the procedure for purely medical reasons.

If you’ve been wondering for a while now whether or not an eyelid surgery is the best procedure for you, read on below to figure out which specific concerns (either cosmetic or medical) will respond well to eyelid surgery.

By and large, eyelid surgery can help you with the following:

  • Reduce or totally remove loose, sagging skin in the upper eyelid that may impede vision and/or make you look tired and older than you really are
  • Reduce or totally remove puffiness around the eye area by removing or redistributing fat
  • Improve significant droopiness of the lower eyelids which in some cases can droop below the iris, revealing the white part under the colored portion of the eye
  • Remove loose skin and wrinkles in the lower eyelid

Your Personalized Eyelid Surgery Plan at the Central Florida Station

Whether it’s for cosmetic or medical purposes, we can help you come up with a personalized eyelid surgery plan. Because blepharoplasty can affect the function and lubrication of the eye, a consultation with Dr. Croley is important. Although other surgeons may perform blepharoplasty, an ophthalmologist is the only surgeon trained specifically to treat the eye and perform eyelid surgery. Therefore, he is uniquely qualified to help you decide whether you should consider this procedure.
