Rejuvenating the eyelid with surgery is very popular in the United States and around the world. If you are unhappy with the way your eye area has aged, our plastic surgeons at Inspire Aesthetics can help ease the look of your tired and aged appearance with cosmetic eyelid surgery. In our offices in Fort Lauderdale and Delray Beach, FL, we offer upper and/or lower eyelid surgery (also called blepharoplasty) as an outpatient procedure. To enhance the upper eyelid, we can provide relief from the common problems with aging skin in this area such as excessive skin (hooding) and puffiness caused by herniation of fat. Our skilled plastic surgeons can delicately change the shape, position, and depth of your eyelid crease. We also see patients who need upper eyelid surgery to improve vision. Lower eyelid surgery removes the "bags" or puffiness of the lower lid.
"Male - Neck Lipo (No thermi) Happy With Results From Dr. Goodwin - Since high school I had a prominent pouch of fat under my chin. It did not really get worse or better with weight gain or loss. Last year, when I began talking to Dr's about possibly correcting this problem, one Dr. told me I needed to have neck and lower face lift ($13,000). The same Dr. gave me a 7K quote on doing my eyes ( I had not asked him about my eyes). Dr. G and 3 other Dr.s said that since my skin was tight, a face lift was not recommended. I brought up the idea of having a chin implant with Dr. G, but he disagreed, and said he thought I would do fine with just neck lipo. He was not my cheapest option, but he's a confident, plainspoken man. I feel lucky that I found him and made the choice to have him do the surgery."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jan 30, 2019
"After going to another Spa for consultation and being rushed out without any answers, I found Inspire. B O Y! I’m I happy I found them. Went in for a consultation 2 wks ago. To begin Kristen was a sweetheart! She explained over the phone the process and made me an appointment. I came in and the office to so beautiful and clean. Smells so fresh! Staff is super friendly. I was seen by the Dr (wish I remembered his name) but he was so nice! He explained my options and advised that Volbella was the best option for me. Yesterday was my appointment for fillers around my eyes. The process was quick and painless and the results W O W! It was instant! My dark circles and bags were gone. I can’t stop looking in the mirror. My husband noticed immediately! I’m absolutely floored on how great I look. I can’t wait to go back and get more procedures done. Love this place and the staff I’m THRILLED to have found the place. Yesterday after my procedure it started pouring and one of the staff members escort d me to my car with an umbrella...what GREAT customer service! They have a customer for life! Thank you for a wonderful experience!"- C.S. / Yelp / Sep 19, 2017
"I’m IN LOVE - OMG! Went in for Juviderm Volbella I purchased through Groupon, and I’m in love at 65. This place is GORGEOUS (EVERYONE is SO NICE) and my Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Drew, filled my lips (and my HEART, with joy). EXPECTATIONS EXCEEDED! (Severe lip lines much smoother). Amanda (his assistant) is awesome. I would trust Dr. Drew with any part of my body, if I had the money to do it all. He is BOMB! I had too many questions, wanted to know everything, and brought a good amount of distrust and doubt with me. Dr. Drew won me over (honest & patient) and told me what to expect during and after. Hands down, he is THAT GOOD & TOTALLY TRUSTWORTHY. I had already bought Botox elsewhere, but after their Juviderm XC, was sceptical. He checked their work, showed me what packaging & syringe should look like, and advised me to go ahead with the Botox I already bought from them, plus where to use it. Dr. Drew did the Botox around my eyes, for better precision. Did I tell you I LOVE THIS GUY?!"- 5. / RealSelf / Jul 08, 2018
"I I wanted to take a moment to write a little review about the BEST Master Injector in all of South Florida; Christopher Thompson, APRN ... IG @christheinjector ...I am consistently so impressed by Chris’ skill, precision, artistry and kindness! Chris is absolutely the BEST injector at Inspire Aesthetics. I found Inspire’s practice searching Instagram for the best injectors in south Florida. I’ve been Chris’ client for about 6 months and I wouldn’t have anyone else to touch my face. I send all my friends, colleagues, etc. to Chris. I keep his business cards in my purse Bc I’m often asked who does my work on the street. I usually get treated with 1-2 syringes of juvaderm in my lips; once every 3 months or so... Totally Gorgeous!! Btw. I describe the look I want, and Chris literally brings my vision to life. Sometimes I will ask him to create what he thinks will look best on my face. Stunning!! I always leave feeling like I have the MOST Beautiful face. Last month I inquired about a product called Belotero- to fill in my crows feet wrinkles and some hollow areas underneath my eyes. I’m 32 years. I was interested in Belotero because I am completely resistant to all Neurotoxins: Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin. I started very young with neurotoxins (18years old) and was treated often; maybe 1x/ every 2mo. I built up antibodies to the botulinum toxins and they don’t have any effect on my crows feet or in between my brows any longer. However here’s the GOOD News! Chris filled in my crows feet wrinkles like a true artist, he works with such accuracy and is a nothing short of a perfectionist. Chris explained that Belotero is lightweight and soft, so it can be injected into very very fine lines (crows feet) without creating lumps or bumps. Essentially.. super great for superficial fine lines, and under-eye tear troughs. Chris treated both areas during my last visit and I’m obsessed 🤩 with my results!! I feel like I look 3-5 years younger. I’m going back for one more syringe to perfect my final look. A girlfriend of mine is joining me this time, as Chris is treating her for the same concerns. I have to say.. I always feel like a million bucks when I leave Inspire Aesthetics Ft Lauderdale. Chris has the brightest most positive personality. Injectables, medical cosmetics and customer service is his calling! Chris is a true Beacon of light for this business. He listens to his clients.. because he cares! Chris address my concerns like a true professional. He’s also a blast to spend a little time with- he has a phenomenal personality, sense of humor and attitude. That means a lot to those who may not be super comfortable getting injectables. Chris puts me at ease. Inspire is a very clean, beautiful, welcoming and loving atmosphere, which makes my entire experience even more wonderful every time. I can barely see my crows-feet wrinkles at resting face. I love my Smooth skin. And my lips are always juicy, full, and plumped to die for 💋. Chris is undoubtedly the best in his field. Go see him, you will be so happy you did. I highly recommend Chris. If you’re curious to see my face, beautifully enhanced by Chris.. follow my IG @oh_g_miracle ♥️"- A.S. / Google / Apr 19, 2021
"So I went into Inspire in August for a Blepharoplasty consult, upper and lower. I scheduled my appt right away for September. Out Patient surgery was done and recovery was pretty fast and easy for me. I had the upper and lower done and I could not be more happy with the results! Dr. Crane is amazing, his professionalism and knowledge made me very comfortable during my consult & during my procedure. Post OP is going well. All the girls in the office and truly amazing, Erika especially. She helped me before during and after my procedure and kept me well informed. Dr. Crane called me the night of my surgery to check in on me and he has been helpful and has over extended himself to me during this whole process. I wish I would have done this procedure sooner. Thank you Dr. Crane and staff for everything. You guys rock & I am ecstatic with my results."- M.F. / Google / Oct 03, 2022
Best Candidates for Blepharoplasty
Good candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who experience:
- Bags or fat deposits under the eyes
- Loose skin and wrinkles on the upper eyelid
- Impaired vision due to hanging skin on the upper eyelid
- Unhappiness with their facial appearance
Healthy adults with droopy upper eyelids or puffy bags under the eyes are generally the best candidates for this procedure.
What to Expect from Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both under local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia. This procedure is most commonly used to treat excess, loose, and sagging skin around the eyes that can impair vision and make a patient look and feel tired. This procedure also corrects minor wrinkles and folds around the eyes to improve your appearance. During the procedure, the loose skin around the eye is removed along with any fat pockets through small incisions. At your private consultation, we will discuss in depth the surgical technique and all of the surgery details as it pertains to your specific case.
Following eyelid surgery, patients should keep their head elevated for the first several days. Bruising and swelling should be expected and may last up to 3 – 4 weeks. Your surgery results will look their best once the treatment area has healed in 3 – 4 weeks. Patients should expect minimal scarring at incision points, which will be almost invisible to the naked eye.

Awake and Alert Again with Blepharoplasty
Eyelid surgery can help to improve your eyes by making you look more attractive and improving your vision. Many patients, both men and women, undergo blepharoplasty to rejuvenate their appearance and improve the physical ailments that come from loose, sagging skin around the eyes. For women, this loose skin can make putting on makeup a burden and may prevent them from achieving the look they desire. If you are considering eyelid surgery schedule a consultation at our office in Fort Lauderdale or Delray Beach, FL to begin the journey toward your rejuvenated look.
