Get rid of drooping eyelids and revitalize your appearance
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure that addresses the signs of aging that affect the eyes. Whether you’re dissatisfied with the shape or appearance of your eyes, or have noticed changes as a result of the natural aging process, Dr. Kitto can improve the appearance of your upper and/or lower eyelids. Dr. Kitto is an oculoplastic surgeon who specializes in eyelid rejuvenation and aims to provide natural results.
Blepharoplasty is for patients who are bothered by drooping eyelid skin, bags under the eyes, and fat deposits that cause them to appear older than their age. Candidates for this surgery should be in good physical condition and don’t have serious eye problems.
In the past 20+ years I have had a face lift and various facial rejuvenations and fillers. So I have seen several docs, here and in Northern Virginia. Dr. Kitto is aces!!! She has a great eye and suggests subtle corrections that enhanced my best features and make me look refreshed and well rested. She has the most caring manner of any physician ever. She’s a highly skilled physician as well as a mom and wife. By doing what she does so well, she helps me go out into the world to do what’s mine to do, with my best face forward.
Patients may choose to have this procedure on either their upper or lower eyelids, or both. Dr. Kitto will make an incision along the natural crease of the eyelids to remove excess skin, muscle and fat deposits making the entire face look younger and refreshed.
I recently had a blepharoplasty procedure by Dr. Kitto. She was amazing! Dr. Kitto was professional, thorough and and has a comforting bedside manner. She explained all aspects of the procedure, prior to the surgery, and provided excellent followup care afterwards. I am thrilled with the results and highly recommend her practice!
Blepharoplasty is an outpatient same day procedure. Patients are sent home to recover with detailed instructions and follow up. Full recovery may take up to a week. Common side effects may include bruising, irritation, swelling, and in some cases dry eyes. The side effects are usually mild and temporary, and can be treated with over-the-counter pain medications and ointments. Patients are seen in the office regularly by Dr. Kitto to ensure complete recovery.
My experience with Dr. Kitto set the bar high for my standards in a doctor. She was the first doctor I felt that took her time in listening to what I wanted while educating me in what to expect
