Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after eyelid surgeons in Palm Beach, Wellington, Jupiter, West Palm Beach, Boyton Beach, and Delray Beach. His attention to detail and methodical technique create beautiful and natural results. The goal of eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is to improve the appearance of aged upper or lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery is also popularly known as eyelid lift. Some common eyelid changes with aging include excess skin, droopy skin, bulgy fat, and bags that can make the person appear tired. Sometimes, the skin sagginess can interfere with vision. Eyelid surgery helps the eyelids regain the youthful and rested appearance. In cases where the skin was interfering with vision, the surgery can also improve sight. Dr. Rueda may refer you to an eye doctor if he determines it’s necessary to obtain other information to guarantee the eye is healthy before the surgery.

EYELID SURGERY PROCEDURE

Dr. Rueda offers two types of procedures for upper and lower eyelid lift surgery: traditional lift, and transconjunctival lift combined with non surgical skin tightening

Dr. Rueda performs a chemical peel that tightens the outside skin for patients who choose the transconjunctival procedure and have mild to moderate skin laxity. This leads to reduced laxity, improved skin color, and less wrinkling around the eyelids.

No Visible Scar Options

Dr. Rueda has found that a significant amount of patients can achieve excellent eyelid surgery results without visible scars. These options are usually available for patients who have mostly eyelid bags and fullness with mild skin laxity.

Customized Surgery

Most eyelid surgery is not simply about removing excess skin or fat in a one size fits all approach. Most of the time patients desire fullness in some areas, custom eyeshadow space, and many other factors that require significant planning. A small portion of patients may need a eyelid lift or correction of lid droopiness with the eyelid surgery. Dr. Rueda works with each patient to make sure each eyelid procedure incorporates these fine but important changes.

Anesthesia Options

Most patients prefer to have sedation with this procedure. However, some patients want to avoid any form of general anesthesia and have the procedure done with local anesthetic. At Precision we specialize in performing the procedure safely and comfortably using both techniques.
