NO-SCAR EYELID SURGERY: CORRECT THE SIGNS OF AGING WITH NO VISIBLE SCARRING

Eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure designed to correct obvious signs of aging – sagging crepey skin, bags under the eyes, and/or excess upper eyelid skin overhanging the eyelashes. This surgery, which is also referred to as blepharoplasty, is a popular choice for men and women who feel these “sign of aging” make them look much older and fatigued, even if they’ve been getting a good night’s sleep.

WHO’S A GOOD CANDIDATE?

The best candidates for Dr. Vitolo’s no-scar eyelid lift procedure are patients who have moderate to severe sagging skin and fat bags under their eyes, and/or excess upper eyelid skin. Candidates with excess eyelid wrinkles and folds also see excellent results from Dr. Vitolo’s eyelid lift.

DR. VITOLO’S APPROACH TO THE NO-SCAR BLEPHAROPLASTY

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vitolo is proud to offer patients his no-scar blepharoplasty procedure, which corrects these signs of aging without creating any visible scarring.

This procedure is superior to the traditional lower eyelid surgery in which an incision is made just below the eyelashes, leaving a scar.

In the technique that Dr. Robert Vitolo uses, he places a protective shield over the anesthetized eye and makes an incision in the inside of the lower eyelid. The fat bags simply bulge out and are removed with an electrosurgical fiber, which prevents any bleeding. After the fat removal, the incision in the eyelid heals by itself, without the need for stitches. Thus the fat bags are removed without making any visible scar.

If there is excess skin or wrinkles in the eyelid skin, Dr. Vitolo uses a laser on the skin of the eyelid. The laser tightens the collagen fibers of the skin and removes the wrinkles by rejuvenating the skin cells.

Dr. Vitolo’s technique for the correction of the upper eyelid skin and crepey appearance is with the use of the laser again. The laser tightens the eyelid skin and removes the wrinkles without making an incision. In some cases where there is too much excess eyelid skin to correct with the laser, it might be necessary to excise the excess skin, leaving a minimal scar in the folds of the eyelid.

However, a better technique for the case of excess upper eyelid skin is Dr. Viotolo’s No Scar Upper Eyelid Lift. In this state-of-the-art technique, Dr. Vitolo uses the Endoscopic Brow Lift procedure. The rationale for this procedure is based on the fact that as you age, you don’t get more eyelid skin, but the appearance of the excess skin is the result of the brow drooping, causing the upper eyelid skin to droop. By slightly elevating the brow with the Endoscopic Browlift the skin is lifted up to where it was years ago, thus creating a lifted wider eye look.

Dr. Vitolo has always had a passion for innovative plastic surgery that leaves no or minimal scars and that focuses on the patient’s health and happiness. Dr. Vitolo’s goal is to have the patient so happy with their eyelid surgery results that they feel rejuvenated and look like their younger selves.

IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?

There’s minimal downtime associated with Dr. Vitolo’s no-scar eyelid lift. With the lower eyelid surgery, there is usually no bruising but there is minimal swelling. Patients use ice compresses the first night and the swelling is usually gone by morning. If we use the laser as an adjunct to the surgery there will be an eschar (scab) that will fall off after 7 days. There will be brand new skin after the scab falls off that will be pink in color. It is very important to use a sunscreen on the new pink skin until the color returns to normal.

WHAT RESULTS WILL I SEE?*

Patients can expect to see initial results right away, as there will be less fat bulging around the eyelid. If a laser has been used it will take some time before the pink color is gone and the skin returns to its normal color. The “bags” under the eyes will be gone and you will have a more youthful “awake” appearance.
