Whether you call it an eyelift, upper eyelid surgery, or the formal blepharoplasty—whatever name you know it by, Dr. DeRosa’s patients love the results of this one-hour long, in-office procedure. When patients come to the DeRosa Clinic in Palm Beach Gardens, they often don’t know exactly what they need. Of course, most patients have the goal of looking younger and more attractive, but many can’t pinpoint exactly what the best options are—this is where Dr. DeRosa’s expertise really shines.
Trained in all facets of facial plastic surgery, Dr. DeRosa can look at a person’s face and see where he or she is ageing most noticeably, and then recommend a reasonable plan of action.
Oftentimes, it is our eyes that dim and first reveal our age. Upper eyelid surgery is a simple, in-office procedure that addresses heavy lids, sagging skin, and “fat bags.”
The results are dramatic and leave the patient looking brighter, more awake and rested. While it is one of the simplest plastic surgery options, it is also one of the most effective in restoring youthfulness to the face. Additionally, upper eyelid surgery provides long-lasting results that remain for years.
During the upper eyelift surgery, Dr. DeRosa makes an incision along the natural curve of the eyelid—an optimal place that leaves the healed incision nearly invisible. She removes the excess skin and closes the incision with fine stitches. This process takes about an hour to complete.
During this in-house procedure she uses a local anesthetic while the anesthesiologist gives medication through an IV. This conscious sedation or “twilight sleep,” helps to keep her patients relaxed, comfortable and safe throughout the process.
As always, Dr. DeRosa uses a conservative approach so that all her upper eyelid surgery patients are assured a rejuvenated, natural appearance—and it all takes place right in Palm Beach Gardens as an in-office procedure at the DeRosa Clinic.
