Expert facial plastic surgeon, Kevin Caceres, MD., offers superior results for advanced facial rejuvenation by combining eyelid and facelift surgery in St. Petersburg, FL. These popular cosmetic plastic surgery procedures can eliminate or significantly improve common signs of facial aging. Read on as we delve into how the benefits of each procedure can complement one another to restore a more youthful facial appearance with comprehensive and enduring results. 

The Transformative Power of Eyelid Surgery

Upper or lower eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty revitalizes eyes that have dark circles and appear aged or tired from eyelid skin that sags or is puffy. The goal of this specialized procedure is to maintain the unique character of the patient’s eyes while restoring a refreshed appearance. During the procedure, the surgeon removes excess skin, and fat and redefines eyelid contours. Droopy eyelids can affect one’s field of vision, and eyelid surgery can correct this, making the procedure not only cosmetic but also functional. 

The Enduring Appeal of Facelifts

Facelift surgery, or rhytidectomy, rejuvenates the mid to lower face and neck. The procedure tightens underlying muscles and reduces loose and sagging skin, eliminating or improving the appearance of jowls, deep nasolabial folds, and wrinkles. Surgeons who are board-certified in facial plastic surgery can employ advanced techniques to avoid the overly “pulled” look associated with early facelifts.

What Are the Benefits of Combining Eyelid and Facelift Surgery?

For individuals seeking facial plastic surgery to address signs of aging with more comprehensive results, Dr. Caceres often recommends a single procedure that combines upper and/or lower eyelid and facelift surgery, this dual surgical approach offers the following benefits: 

Comprehensive Rejuvenation – Eyelid surgery targets sagging skin, puffiness, and wrinkles around the eyes, while a facelift addresses loose skin, deep folds, and jowls in the mid to lower face and neck. Changes in one area can affect the perception of others. Simultaneously performed eyelid and facelift procedures ensure a harmonious visual transition in the appearance of the upper and lower face.

Synchronized Recovery – Undergoing both procedures simultaneously minimizes downtime and allows for a more efficient recovery process than scheduling surgeries separately.

Safety and Cost-Effectiveness – Patients only undergo anesthesia once, reducing potential risks. Combining surgeries can reduce overall expenses, including anesthesia and facility fees, compared to having them done individually.

Candidates for Eyelid and Facelift Procedures

At Kevin Caceres, MD., Facial Plastic Surgery in St. Petersburg, a comprehensive consultation begins the process. Ideal candidates for facial plastic surgery are in good general health and are non-smokers, or who are at least willing to quit smoking for several weeks before surgery and during the recovery. A thorough evaluation of the patient’s medical history and facial anatomy will confirm individual candidacy. 

The Importance of Facial Plastic Surgery Board Certification

When contemplating any form of cosmetic facial surgery, it is essential to consult with a surgeon who is board-certified in facial plastic surgery. Surgeons who are certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS) and the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (ABOHNS) are facial reconstructive specialists who possess the highest level of training in patient safety, facial anatomy, advanced surgical techniques, and functional and aesthetic considerations specific to the face and neck.
