West Palm Beach area doctor restores appearance and vision with correction of sagging eyelids
Dr. Jarial takes years off of patients’ faces and can restore clear vision with a precise, conservative surgical approach to correct sagging eyelids in West Palm Beach.
Why you may need surgical intervention
The scientific term for droopy and saggy lids, ptosis, can be caused by congenital and neurological conditions, but is commonly associated with aging. As the tendon attached to the levator muscle responsible for lifting the eyelid weakens, it causes the lid to droop. Age-related changes to fat distribution can cause excess padding over or under the lids, droopy brows, and bags that make you look older and more tired than you are.
Ptosis may be so severe that it limits peripheral vision and you may need to lift the tissue with your fingers to see.
Dr. Jarial’s approach to treatment
Blepharoplasty to correct eyelid-related problems translates to “eyelid surgical repair.” If the doctor determines blepharoplasty is the best approach for you, smoking and the use of some OTC painkillers or herbal supplements is discouraged due to healing and bleeding risks. You will need to arrange for transportation from the office.
The day of your visit, medications will numb the treatment area and help to put you at ease. Excess skin, fat, and muscle will be removed along the fold of the eyelid and the incision will be closed. If lower lids are your problem, excess is removed at the natural crease or inside of the lid.
After your procedure, you may experience fleeting, mild redness, tenderness, light sensitivity and watering for a short period. For results that last a lifetime, follow after-care as directed by Dr. Jarial. This includes avoiding activities that may strain the eyes, applying drops and ointments, and following through with post-treatment visits.
