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 Aesthetics 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.
"What an amazing team!! Dr. Goodwin, Kathy and Angela made a very stressful life event involving my double mastectomy and reconstruction turn from a nightmare into a dream.

"Get It Done Right From the Start - Dr. Matthew Goodwin is a fantastic plastic surgeon. Prior to seeing Dr. Goodwin, I had been through a unilateral mastectomy followed by six unsuccessful breast reconstruction surgeries. I heard about a woman who experienced the same and that Dr. Goodwin fixed everything for her in just one surgery. That was the inspiration I needed to go see him. Dr. Goodwin was very pleasant, answered my many questions perfectly, and gave me confidence in his ability to get this right. I recently had the surgery, and am absolutely thrilled with the results. Please don't wait until you've had several failed surgeries. Go to him right from the start."- D. / RealSelf / Mar 01, 2020
"Very happy with the result! I did a chin augmentation and could not be happier with the outcome. It is a slight, yet significant change in my appearance. Dr. Schnitt is knowledgeable, skilled and very honest. He will not try to do unnecessary procedures to make money, but rather recommend what is really needed in your case. He takes all the time in the world to answer questions. I have been in a total about 6 times including the surgery for pre-ops and post-ops, and it has always been a breeze to get in and out. His staff is also friendly and extremely helpful - available to answer questions quickly on email, phone or SMS. I rarely leave reviews, but felt the need to tell my experience at Inspire Cosmetic. As a guy it was a bit hard mentally to get this done, but the staff made me feel very comfortable about my decision. Thank you so much guys!"- D.G. / Yelp / Feb 27, 2020
"Dr. Drew Schnitt could not have been better! He was upfront and thorough about my procedure before and after. The results are exactly what I was hoping for. I couldn't be happier. I can't thank Vanessa enough for constantly being on call to answer my questions and concerns throughout my healing process. There was never a time that she would not answer within an hour, even when she was not working. She made the experience a million times easier for me. I can't say better things about Inspire, and I will be a long time client. I will be recommending Dr. Drew & the Inspire team to all my friends."- C.F. / Yelp / Feb 08, 2020
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.
