Eyelid Surgery

Many people would agree that a few wrinkles around the eyes add expression to their appearance; however, dark circles, droopy eyelids and bags convey an undesirable fatigued appearance. Significant crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and “11” furrows are not kind to ones appearance. That is why thousands of men and women have chosen eyelid surgery at Destin Plastic Surgery in Florida to get a rested, brighter and more youthful appearance.

Surgery Is Not Always The Answer

Non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers including Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, can help in the early stages of the aging process. Many men often prefer BOTOX injections because the results are subtler. Although these treatments are not permanent, crow’s feet, furrows, and dark circles can be softened and often eliminated with these treatments.

Destin Plastic Surgery has been a national leader in non-surgical facial treatments since 1998. We are a Diamond rated office for BOTOX and JUVÉDERM, as well as a training facility for Allergan, the makers of BOTOX. There is no other facility in the region with comparable experience.

A Reputation Built on Results

You deserve the highest caliber of service, care, and results, and at Destin Plastic Surgery, we're committed to providing all that and more. But don't take our word for it—see for yourself what our actual patients have to say about their experiences with us.

My experience was a little nerve-racking at the beginning especially with the poor quality of customer service from the nursing staff or the receptionist I don’t know what the title is however Dr. Enis did an amazing job with my breasts and he gave me everything I wanted no scars my breast are perfect the same size I’ve gotten nothing but compliments from friends and family the aftercare was great as well. I have no complaints about these doctors and the staff could’ve been a lot warmer and inviting but the doctors are great and they know what they’re doing at least Dr. Enos I got my breast augmentation intothousand10 and nine years later it still looks phenomenal beautiful he did a perfect job!

Just wanted to share the perfect experience I had getting my mommy makeover. Breast lift, tummy tuck and lipo of flanks and hips. Dr Burden and his staff (Joan), made the experience that much better. My results are better than I anticipated. Dr. Burden saw me at each appointment with a terrific bedside manner and answered all questions to relieve my fears. I could not be happier with my results. I recommend 100%.

When Surgery Is The Answer

Surgical procedures to reshape the area around the eyes can help the more advanced signs of aging.

Brow Surgery (Endoscopic Brow Lift)

In explaining the brow lift concept to patients, we give the following analogy: Think of the eye as a “window,” the upper eyelid as the “curtain” and the brow as the “curtain rod.” If the “curtain rod” is a quarter or halfway down the window the curtain begins to puddle at the bottom of the window. You wouldn’t cut off the “curtain.” You would raise the “curtain rod” to the proper position and then tailor in the “curtain” as indicated. This concept of total or structural rejuvenation of the area is appealing to our patients. Elevating the outer brow and correcting the outer upper eyelid hooding restores the facial harmony and prevents the operated on appearance. Note this is the images below.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

A critical portion of the aging process involves the cheek pad (mid-face). As the cheek pad falls and begins to droop, the lower eyelid takes on an elongated appearance and the lower eyelids take on a puffy, baggy appearance. The lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) technique developed by Dr. Burden addresses this. Note the improvement following surgery in the pictures below.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

The upper eyelid is an attractive structure that has a beautiful oily sheen and a darker hue than the surrounding skin. When this area begins to appear droopy and puffy, a person appears tired and aged. Removal of the periocular fat of the upper eyelid will improve the “puffiness” and removal of the skin will improve the “droopy” appearance.

Recovery From Eyelid Procedures

In general, upper and lower eyelid surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure. The recuperation period is not prolonged with most men and women alike returning to work between 7 and 14 days. Postoperative pain is well tolerated, requiring a short-term course of narcotic pain pills.

Dr. William R. Burden, MD, FACS is known for his experience and dedication to staying in the forefront of leading technology in plastic surgery. Dr. Burden not only treats many patients from Panama City, Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach, Tallahassee, Dothan, Atlanta, and Birmingham but also from around the world. Many people travel from Europe, South America and Asia to Destin to seek out his services.
