FACIAL REJUVENATION FOR THE EYES
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is recommended for healthy adults of any age who suffer from droopy eyelids or heavy bags under their eyes. Dr. Fortes will evaluate your medical history to determine if you are a candidate for this type of facial surgery.
Blepharoplasty involves incisions being made in the creases of your upper eyelids and just below the lashes in your lower eyelids, so that underlying fat and excess skin are removed, eliminating the dropping appearance.
Eyelid surgery usually takes between one to three hours as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. The incisions are closed with fine sutures designed to leave nearly invisible scars. The sutures are removed in about one week, and scarring is usually minimal after three weeks and undetectable in six months. Most patients can return to work in five to seven days and can begin strenuous activities in about three weeks.
Contact Dr. Fortes to learn more about eyelid surgery, including transconjunctival blepharoplasty, during which skin is not removed and the incision is made inside the lower eyelid. If droopy eyelids impair your vision, check with your health care provider to determine if this procedure is covered by insurance

I’ve had rhinoplasty with Dr. Fortes. Going through surgery; the environment doesn’t feel like being in a hospital, some people get scared when it comes to needles & all of that stuffs. It was totally painless. The staff is very nice. The surgeon makes his patients feel appreciated. He is an artist.
It’s been only 3 weeks and my stomach is so flat and my waist is so little!
Dr. Fortes is extremely professional and makes you feel very comfortable. I had a tummy tuck and liposuction, because my c-section left me with extra skin. It’s been only 3 weeks and my stomach is so flat and my waist is so little! I highly recommend this doctor! The staff is nice and very helpful as well!
