Dr. Kris Reddy FACS: West Palm Beach Eyelids Surgery Expert
The eyes are the most expressive part of the face, but they're also one of the first areas of the body to show signs of aging. When they start to age, eyes detract from the look of your face, making you appear old, tired, and worn out. Over time upper eyelids droop and sag, sometimes even impairing your peripheral vision. Lower eyelids puff out with bags and dark circles. Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, board certified plastic surgeon and West Palm Beach Blepharoplasty expert, helps many women and men regain that youthful, refreshed look.
Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, West Palm Beach board certified plastic surgeon and West Palm Beach eyelids surgery expert, has the rare double honor of being a Fellow of American and International College of Surgeons, the only board certified plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon in Palm Beach County, Florida to hold both of these prestigious honors. Dr. Reddy is also a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
The Basics – West Palm Beach Eyelid Surgery
Cosmetic eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) removes the excess fat and wrinkled, drooping skin of the upper eyelids that can make you look constantly tired or sad. It also eliminates bags under your eyes and tightens your lower-eyelid skin. The result is a more alert and rested appearance.
During a blepharoplasty procedure, Dr. Reddy will remove fat as well as excess skin and muscle from your eyelids. There are several medical reasons why you might choose to have a blepharoplasty procedure performed, including:
Bags under your eyes
Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids
Excess skin around the upper and/or lower eyelids
Loose or sagging skin that detracts from the natural contour of the upper eyelid
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is often performed along with a facelift or other facial rejuvenation procedures. Some people have inherited traits that cause them to have eyelid surgery as early as their 20s or 30s.
Sometimes our South Florida eyelid surgery patients require additional surgery at the corners of the eyelid. If the corners need to be tightened and lifted, the surgeon will perform a canthopexy. Eyelid surgery also can restore peripheral vision impaired by loose, sagging eyelids. Since this procedure restores obstructed vision, in some cases insurance companies may provide coverage for a portion of the cost of eyelid surgery.
Patients who request consultation for blepharoplasty may ask about lower eyelid surgery, upper eyelid surgery, eyelids surgery, double eyelid surgery, under eye surgery, droopy eyelid surgery, Asian eyelid surgery, and cosmetic eye lid surgery.
Your Procedure, Your New Look
Dr. Reddy performs eyelid surgery at the West Palm Beach Plastic Surgery Center, his AAAASF nationally accredited surgical center, utilizing MD Anesthesiologists to provide either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia.
For upper eyelid surgery, he usually makes the incisions within the natural crease of the upper lids, and removes excess skin and fatty tissue.
Treatment of the lower eyelids often requires an incision that is hidden just below your lower lashes. Through this incision, excess skin, muscle and fat are removed or adjusted; sometimes fat may be repositioned to eliminate puffiness or bulges. If your lower eyelid skin is not excessive, Dr. Reddy, a West Palm Beach Blepharoplasty expert, may decide to use a different technique that removes fat through an incision placed inside the lid. A laser sometimes is used, if necessary, to resurface the lower eyelid skin and to achieve a small degree of skin tightening.
After surgery, expect some swelling that may persist for a week or longer. Your vision may be somewhat blurry for a few days, and you will want to wear dark glasses to protect your eyes form wind and sun. Within a week, you can wear makeup to conceal any remaining discoloration. You should be back to work in a few days to ten days depending on your natural healing abilities.

Patient Recommendation for Dr. Kris Reddy
Throughout the website, we generally include a patient recommendation describing his/her experience with Dr. Reddy. These recommendations better describe Dr. Reddy's style and personality more than anything we can write.
"It’s been 6 weeks since my blepharoplasty surgery and I am already very pleased with the amazing results. I now see that you had the vision of what I wanted from the very start. Initially, when I was going through the healing process I couldn’t have imagined that things would look as good as they do now in such short period of time. I am truly lucky to find you….you are a rare diamond in the sand!
Traveling from New York to West Palm Beach Florida for a consultation with you took a gamble, but from the very moment I stepped into your office I was greeted with such warmth and support from you and your wonderful staff. Shirley, Diana, Anne, Lisa, and Vivek are amazing!! You took time to explain the procedure and made sure that I was very well informed and comfortable with my decision. Thanks for your amazing surgical skills, affordability, and your sincere ability to give personalized service. Even back in New York, I feel comfortable knowing that if any concerns arise you are only a phone call away.
I am now optimistically looking forward to a more confident and beautiful me. My future looks a lot more beautiful and sunny thanks to you! I look forward to seeing you next time I am back in Florida.
With much gratitude and love,"

Question: What is blepharoplasty?
Answer: Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure to remove excess fat, skin and loose muscle from the upper and lower eyelids.
Question: How is the procedure performed?
Answer: During blepharoplasty, Dr. Reddy makes incisions within the natural creases of the eyelids or on the inside of the eyelids. Dr. Reddy removes some of the herniated fat and excess skin and then closes the incision with very fine sutures.
Question: Is there much scarring with a blepharoplasty?
Answer: As with any surgical procedure, some scarring is to be expected. However, Dr. Reddy’s careful attention to detail will ensure that the scarring with blepharoplasty is minimal, well hidden, and practically nonexistent after several months of healing.
Question: At what age can blepharoplasty be performed?
Answer: Fat and loose skin around the eyes usually appears with age, but some young people are genetically prone to it, so some patients in their 20s will consider eyelids surgery.
Question: Will a blepharoplasty get rid of my eye wrinkles?
Answer: No. A blepharoplasty is not designed to remove the wrinkles at the outer corners of your eyes (crow's feet) or to fix sagging brows. There are other procedures available that can be used to remove wrinkles near the eyes.
Question: What should I expect postoperatively?
Answer: After your surgery, your eyes will be tender, swollen, and sore, and you will probably have some bruising. These should all resolve in a few days. Discomfort can usually be controlled with pain medications prescribed by your surgeon. You may experience blurry vision for the first few days after your procedure, and your eyes may be watery or very dry.
Question: When will my sutures be taken out?
Answer: Sutures are normally removed three to five days after your surgery. The removal process may sting a little, but is usually not too uncomfortable.
Question: When will I be able to see the results?
Answer: You should be able to see a definite difference once the swelling goes down, but this won't be for several days.
Question: What are the risks of blepharoplasty?
Answer: Blepharoplasty, like all surgery, has risks. Minor complications associated with blepharoplasty include temporary double or blurry vision, temporary swelling, and tiny white pimples around your eyes. Your eyes may also heal at different rates, which can mean that they will be temporarily asymmetrical. More serious risks include permanent asymmetry or difficulty closing your eyes and keeping them closed.

Dr. Kris Reddy has the rare honor to be one of the 100 physicians nationally to be part of the Realself 100 for the highest standard of quality, safety, and satisfaction in the country which is driven by the reviews from our patients:
Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, West Palm Beach Plastic Surgeon, can address this triangle of age either surgically with procedures such as facelift, fat transfer to the face, and/or chin liposuction. Alternatively, Dr. Reddy can address the triangle of aging with dermal fillers such as voluma and/or nonsurgical fat reduction procedures such as Coolsculpting or kybella. Laser resurfacing procedures as Halo also helps. Some typical signs of aging include loss of collagen, formation of lines and wrinkles, drooping skin in the cheeks, brown spots and rough skin texture, and sagging skin on the jawline.
Live Your Life Forever Young
"Live Your Life Forever Young” is one of Dr. Reddy's unique concepts which he derived partially from the research and publication of Dr. Anne Lynn S. Chang of the Stanford University School of Medicine as published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology and scientists Dieter Manstein, MD, PhD and R. Rox Anderson, MD of Harvard University.
As applied at his AAAASF nationally accredited center, “Live Your Life Forever Young” means providing patients significant transformation without needing them to alter their lifestyle.
Some of the key procedures that would fall under this concept include Coolsculpting which is a revolutionary nonsurgical treatment for fat reduction (Dr. Reddy has the only Certified Coolsculpting Center in West Palm Beach), Halo Laser Resurfacing which is widely recognized as the first major advance in laser resurfacing in 2 decades (Dr. Reddy has the only Halo Laser in West Palm Beach and treats appropriate patients with traditional laser), and Nonsurgical Facelift utilizing Voluma, Juvederm, Volbella, Vollure, Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Refyne/Defyne, and Radiesse. Dr. Reddy is a an experienced and expert physician injector.
