Eyelid Surgery

Older model couple with females hand on males shoulder smiling

Our eyes are our connection to the people around us and allow us to express the way we feel. Unfortunately, the eyes are one of the first features of the face to convey signs of aging. Drooping, puffy, or wrinkled eyes make us appear older and more worn-out than we feel. Refresh your tired-appearing eyes with an eyelid lift, also known as eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kent V. Hasen performs eyelid surgery at his Naples-Fort Myers, FL, practice with discreetly positioned incisions that are nearly invisible once healed.

If you are seriously considering eyelid surgery, we invite you to contact us for more information or to schedule your consultation. Be sure to register online for a special consultation savings.

Who Is a Good Eyelid Surgery Candidate?

Ideal eyelid surgery candidates include:

  • Patients who receive comments from others that they appear sad, tired, or old.
  • Men and women with excess skin that causes hooding of the upper lids.
  • Patients who cannot easily apply makeup to the upper eyelids.
  • Patients with excess skin, wrinkles, bags, or puffiness to the lower eyelids.
  • Patients who have a drooping look to the corners of the eyes.
  • Men and women who have difficulty seeing when looking upward.

If the under-eye area is your main concern, you may be a candidate for a nonsurgical procedure called Renuvion®, which tightens skin and reshapes underlying fat.

How Is Eyelid Surgery Done?

The procedure is performed in our fully accredited, private surgery suite using local or general anesthesia. It is complete in about 2 to 3 hours for both eyes.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

During upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Hasen creates a very thin, barely visible incision in the natural crease of the eyelid. He tightens the muscle and removes excess skin and fat to create a more awake, open appearance.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

In lower eyelid surgery, Dr. Hasen makes an incision either below the eyelashes or below the inside edge of the eyelid. Through this incision, he removes excess skin and fat to correct puffy bags that collect below the eyes. He may also tighten or lift the muscles.

Either approach can be combined with a forehead lift or a facelift at our Ft. Myers-area practice for a more dramatic result.

How Much Does Eyelid Surgery Cost in Naples?

While the actual cost differs between patients, the price of upper and lower eyelid surgery typically ranges from $9,975 to $12,650. We work to keep our fees competitive with those of other plastic surgeons throughout Naples and Fort Myers. During your eyelid surgery consultation, you’ll receive a written quote that reflects the specifics of your procedure.

What Is Eyelid Surgery Recovery Like?

While patient experiences vary, in general, you can expect the following progression after eyelid surgery:

  • Immediately after surgery: You can go home after several hours and shower 2 days after surgery.
  • Discomfort: Minimal discomfort is mostly gone by day 2 or 3  and is easily controlled by medications.
  • Swelling and bruising: Swelling is mild to moderate for 1 week and rapidly disappears thereafter. There may be minimal bruising, which is at its maximum at 2 days then disappears rapidly by 7 to 10 days.
  • Returning to work: You’ll likely need about 3 to 4 days away from work. You may apply make-up in 3 to 4 days and comfortably appear in public at that time.
  • Resuming activities: Resume many activities within the first week, and most by at least 3 weeks.
  • Removing stitches: Some stitches will be removed at 4 days and the rest between 7 and 10 days.

Your scars will continue to flatten and fade to very thin, light lines over the next several weeks.

How Long Do Eyelid Surgery Results Last?

While nothing can stop the aging process altogether, eyelid surgery results are generally long-lasting. The results of eyelid surgery vary between individuals and may include one or more of the following benefits:

  • Very natural, rested, and younger appearance.
  • Better vision and no more heaviness or discomfort to the eyelids.
  • Lasts for a long time and looks better than if you did not have the surgery.
  • Natural and presentable appearance in the first week that continues to improve over the next 3 to 6 months.

Eyelid Surgery FAQ

What’s the best age to have eyelid surgery?

The “best” age is when your concerns can’t be corrected with nonsurgical treatments and you are prepared to take time out for recovery. Most patients are at least 35 years old; however, younger patients have the procedure to correct concerns related to genetics.


Can eyelid surgery really help with hooded eyes?

Yes. Upper eyelid surgery can remove the lax skin that causes hooding. In some cases, a brow lift is necessary to completely address this concern.


How is blepharoplasty approached for different ethnicities?

The reasons people of different ethnicities seek eyelid surgery often differ from the goals of traditional blepharoplasty. For example, patients of Asian descent often want a defined upper eyelid crease. Dr. Hasen takes care to preserve the natural ethnic aesthetic of the eye area while accomplishing his patient’s cosmetic goals.


Is there anyone who shouldn’t have a blepharoplasty?

Patients should have realistic expectations about the outcome of the surgery and be willing to follow Dr. Hasen’s post-opt instructions carefully. Certain medical conditions, such as chronic dry eye and hypertension, can exclude you from being a good candidate. If upper eyelid sagging is due to a heavy brow, you might need a brow lift instead of (or in addition to) blepharoplasty.


Is the surgery painful?

People often think eyelid surgery will be painful because the eye area is so delicate; however, Dr. Hasen’s patients are usually pleasantly surprised by how little discomfort they experience after the surgery. Typically, over-the-counter pain medication is enough to keep them comfortable.


Will I need someone to stay with me following surgery?

You will need an adult friend or family member to drive you home after surgery and help you out for the first few days. It is normal to have blurry vision initially due to ointment, swelling, and fluid that may drain from the incisions.
