About Eyelid Surgery
Rejuvenating the eyelid with surgery is very popular in the United States and around the world. If you are unhappy with the way your eye area has aged, our board-certified plastic surgeons at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa can help ease the look of your tired and aged appearance with cosmetic eyelid surgery. In our office in Delray Beach, FL we offer upper and/or lower eyelid surgery (also called blepharoplasty) as an outpatient procedure. To enhance the upper eyelid, we can provide relief from the common problems with aging skin in this area such as excessive skin (hooding) and puffiness caused by herniation of fat. Our skilled plastic surgeons can delicately change the shape, position, and depth of your eyelid crease. We also see patients who need upper eyelid surgery to improve vision. Lower eyelid surgery removes the "bags" or puffiness of the lower lid.
"Dr. Schnitt is one of the few doctors who truly provides the quality of care I expect. His front office assistant (Kristin) was highly professional and very caring. Dr. Schnitt took his time to examine my son and explain everything in detail. He was extremely patient and totally thorough. I was able to contact him directly, before and after surgery. He did an amazing job fixing my son's broken nose. I am deeply grateful and I highly recommend him. JG"- D.G. / Facebook / Mar 24, 2017
"Results are Incredible!!! - After a bi-lateral mastectomy Dr Goodwin performed my reconstruction and the results are amazing. He was gentle/kind and the first doctor to check on me in the morning. I'm shock to see a comment regarding him being money motivated. I had the worst insurance and whatever they paid him it was not nearly enough. Three years later, the cancer is gone, the scars are almost non existent, and I recommend Dr Goodwin to every woman I can."- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 18, 2018

Good candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who experience:
- Bags or fat deposits under the eyes
- Loose skin and wrinkles on the upper eyelid
- Impaired vision due to hanging skin on the upper eyelid
- Unhappiness with their facial appearance
Healthy adults with droopy upper eyelids or puffy bags under the eyes are generally the best candidates for this procedure.
What to Expect
Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both under local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia. This procedure is most commonly used to treat excess, loose, and sagging skin around the eyes that can impair vision and make a patient look and feel tired. This procedure also corrects minor wrinkles and folds around the eyes to improve your appearance. During the procedure, the loose skin around the eye is removed along with any fat pockets through small incisions. At your private consultation, we will discuss in depth the surgical technique and all of the surgery details as it pertains to your specific case.
Following eyelid surgery, patients should keep their head elevated for the first several days. Bruising and swelling should be expected and may last up to 3 – 4 weeks. Your surgery results will look their best once the treatment area has healed in 3 – 4 weeks. Patients should expect minimal scarring at incision points, which will be almost invisible to the naked eye.

Awake and Alert Again
Eyelid surgery can help to improve your eyes by making you look more attractive and improving your vision. Many patients, both men, and women undergo blepharoplasty to rejuvenate their appearance and improve the physical ailments that come from loose, sagging skin around the eyes. For women, this loose skin can make putting on makeup a burden and may prevent them from achieving the look they desire. If you are considering eyelid surgery schedule a consultation at our office to begin the journey toward your rejuvenated look.
