If you are having upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Cutolo typically performs the procedure in his office, using local anesthesia to keep you comfortable throughout your procedure. Lower eyelid procedures are usually performed in a hospital using either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. For the upper eyelids, Dr. Cutolo makes tiny incisions in the natural creases of your eyelids, hiding them so scars are practically invisible. After removing excess fatty tissue, he tightens loose skin and may make adjustments to the muscles.
For the lower eyelids, the incision is completely hidden and fat is removed as well. If needed, Dr. Cutolo uses laser technology to smooth your lower eyelid wrinkles and to reduce excess skin. Excess skin can also be reduced with a procedure called a “skin pinch.” Dr. Cutolo may also recommend adding BOTOX® Cosmetic to your eyelid surgery to minimize lines and wrinkles in the crow’s feet area. The procedure usually takes 1 to 3 hours. Dr. Cutolo will discuss these options with you during the consultation and will recommend which will give you the best and longest lasting results!
