While many patients don’t always think about the area of their eyes unless they are problematic, it is amazing what can be done if patients seriously consider the advantages of blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). Blepharoplasty is can be done to enhance the appearance of the eyes by addressing excess skin on the eyelids.
Patients who are appropriate candidates for eyelid surgeries are individuals who are dealing with:
- Loose skin that results in folds or poor contouring of the eyes
- Impairment of vision due to excess or sagging skin
- Fatty deposits around the eyes that result in a puffy appearance
- Bags underneath the eyes
- Lower eyelids that droop and show excess white of the eye below the iris
- Fine lines, wrinkles, and excess skin on the lower eyelid that appears heavy
Dr. Genevieve Broderick is the plastic surgeon at DermASAP who can address the eyelids and provide patients with noticeable rejuvenation for better appearance and improved vision. Using special surgical techniques, she can achieve the desired results with less scarring and a dramatic improvement in appearance. It is important to work with a plastic surgeon who has the experience necessary to make the enhancements look completely natural, as few patients want to reveal that they’ve had “work done.”
Patients who are interested in eyelid surgery are encouraged to book an appointment with our team to determine if they are appropriate candidates. Many of the above situations are the reasons patients decide that eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is right for them. Our team can provide a thorough evaluation of the eyelid skin to determine if it is indeed appropriate to perform for enhancement of the eye area.

It is common for the team at DermASAP in Plymouth to see patients who desire a more attractive appearance. They want to look and feel their best, and if there are imperfections of the face or body, they want to address them in a safe, affordable, and natural-looking manner. When patients in Plymouth and the surrounding areas are unhappy with the appearance of their eyes they may speak with our team to determine the options they have available. At DermASAP, we have both a dermatologist and a plastic surgeon on our team who can help with concerns around the eyes such as excess fatty deposits and sagging skin with upper and lower eyelid surgery.
Eyelid surgery is unique to each patient. It may involve the removal of excess skin that causes folds and unattractive contouring of the eyes and may improve the appearance by reducing fine lines and wrinkles that have developed and negatively affected the look of the eyes.
Dr. Genevieve Broderick, our plastic surgeon will first consult with patients and perform a thorough evaluation to determine if eyelid surgery is right for them. This is a great time for patients to ask about alternative solutions or discuss what they can expect before, during, and after the procedure. Aftercare information is crucial as patients may take time off work following the procedure.
