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.

Had my tummy tuck and lipo in December and Dr. Burden is amazing, caring and stands behind his work. I am having a revision in a few months due to a little remaining skin but Dr. Burden has put my fears to rest and I’m 100% confident in him, so much so he will be performing my brachioplasty while doing my revision. If you have ever thought of doing any elective surgery Dr. Burden should be your choice!

Dr. Grisoli is amazing! I've been coming to him for laser after having been to someone else who caused me pain with no results In the end. After one treatment with Dr grisoli I noticed a massive difference. He's so thorough and he truly cares about making you feel and look beautiful. I will always recommend and continue to go to Dr. Grisoli for laser treatments.

I live in Okaloosa County and was referred to Dr.Burden by my daughter who had her breast augmentation there. I was a little worried since I am getting older but this is something I really wanted to do for me. Dr. Burden took the time to meet with me and understand what I wanted to obtain and he did exactly what I asked and I couldn't be happier. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. I had been told how painful the procedure would be but I have to say that I rested the first day and was up and about the very next day. A little sore but very tolerable. I would definitely recommend Dr. Burden with Destin Surgery Center to everyone. Top notch team!

Botox Bill is great. Never any issues with him. Bill the one who gets most stars! Dr Burden seems caring and kind. My breast augmentation went smoothly and with great result. Going from small B to full D with natural looking result, made my husband happy. However his nurse is very cold, short and have demeaning tone. I went for consultation for another procedure but she acted like she makes me a favor by taking all those pictures and was visibly annoyed and frustrated. Even that she could see that I already had surgery there before. You already feel vulnerable there undressed discussing problems, she didn’t make me feel any better with her attitude . I did not schedule that surgery. Chemical peel i had there resulted in chemical burn to part of my face. Lady was polite but seemed like wanted me out of there even that I scheduled full peel service. I did not returned there again for their skin services.

Overall, I am very satisfied with my results and my time spent at the facility. Everyone was very kind and helpful. I would recommend this facility and Dr. Burden to anyone who is interested.

I am originally from Panama City, FL but recently moved to Houston TX. After reviewing many doctors in Houston and in Florida I knew Dr. Burden was my best option. The staff is the friendliest staff that has ever taken care of me. Everyone in the office truly cares for your needs and does whatever they can to achieve that. Having the surgery center included made me feel safer and it was extremely clean. I got a breast augmentation done and Dr.Burden made me feel very comfortable and he is the most trustworthy doctor. If any one wants to get a breast augmentation I highly advise you to use Dr.Burden because you will not be disappointment. I am thrilled with my results.

My experience with Destin Plastic Surgery was exceptional. I had a very frank conversation with Dr. Burden regarding my body during the consult which he turned into my dream come true. I had a better than expected outcome but I did exactly what Dr. Burden, Joan and the staff told me to do regarding care after the surgery. I would definitely recommend them for whatever your plastic surgical needs may be.

I am six days post op with my breast augmentation with Dr. Burden. I am already ecstatic about my results. My consultation with Dr. Burden was great. He took plenty of time to answer all my questions and chat with me for a lengthy period. Going in to surgery, the nurses there were very sweet and did a great job of calming my nerves. My three star rating comes from the experience I had at my post op appointment today. First of all, when I walked into the office there were two nurses upstairs that barely acknowledged my arrival. Once they realized I was there the blonde tall nurse sharply said “Name??” And never once even said hello or shed a smile. I was then escorted back to the room to see Joan, who was really nice and showed me all the proper exercises I needed to do in the coming weeks. As I walked out that same RUDE nurse said “need an appointment?” Never once looked at me, never tried to see how the appointment went. People spend a lot of money to come in there and have procedures done. A lot of times they can be uncomfortable and in pain- as I was. The least the staff could do is be kind and friendly.

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.
