During a blepharoplasty procedure, your doctor 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
Vision problems associated with puffy eyelids
As part of a facelift or browlift
Blepharoplasty is generally performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia. Because of the initial bruising associated with the procedure you will probably not want to go back to work for a week to 10 days after surgery. You will also experience some initial problems with your vision that should disappear in two to three days.
The common name for blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery. It is usually performed on patients who want to look younger and boost their personal self–esteem.
Once you have healed from the surgery, the results are in many cases permanent. You will look and feel younger.

My daughter (16) had a Rhinoplasty with Dr. Devita and it has only been 2 weeks since her surgery and the results are amazing! She had a deviated septum, a bump and an enlarged tip. Dr. Devita is a true artist. Her nose looks so natural and fits her face perfect. He explained the process throughout and was in regular contact with us after the surgery. She had very little pain and no365 bruising, just discomfort for the first week. She can already breathe better and loves the way it looks. Trust me, I did my research and found the best of the best! Highly recommend!

At 9 years old I broke my nose so there was a bump that I was very uncomfortable with. Dr. Devita fixed it and now i have my dream nose!

Dr. DeVita brought my confidence to an all time high! My nose was something I have always been self conscious about so I went to Dr. DeVita to see what he could do. All I can say is that he really outdid himself. It's only been one month but I am amazed with my new look already. He was so kind and reassuring as I was nervous for the surgery and he answered all of my questions (since I had a lot.) I highly recommend Dr. DeVita, he really does a fantastic job!!

Dr. DeVita has done a lip correction for me. For 3 years I have been living with an insecurity on my face due to being hit in my mouth. My lip was uneven and had a huge lump. I was told by Dr. DeVita that the surgery would be quick but the healing process would be long. It has only been 2 months and the results are already amazing. I can smile just like before...with confidence. I am soooo very thankful for him and his check ups!

Today I am a little over 2 weeks postoperative and could not be happier with the results so far. Dr. DeVita took all the time I needed to answer questions prior and after surgery, checked to make sure all was going well after surgery and to just monitor my progress. He is a wonderful, skilled surgeon and his staff is friendly and helpful as well.

This is the second surgery I have had done by Dr. Devita. I am beyond thrilled with the results and would recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing plastic surgeon. His staff is professional and courteous and always super helpful with any questions / concerns I had.

Dr.Devita is an excellent plastic surgeon! He has performed two cosmetic procedures on me. The outcome was better than I even imagined! Amazing doctor! Highly recommend!

Took me 3 years to finally find the right surgeon to repair my nose that I broke playing rugby, and more importantly a surgeon who could get the procedure adequately covered by my insurance. Dr. Devita did both, and I can finally breathe properly again. Very happy with both the functional and cosmetic results from the surgery. And the recovery was far quicker than I had expected

I couldn't be more than happier and thankful to Doctor De vita!! From the moment that I walked into doctor De Vita's office I felt comfortable and trusted in his long medical experience. He did a remarkable tummy tuck on me and I couldn't be more grateful. I really appreciate him walking with me through my recovery process. I am in my third month since my surgery has been completed and I'm feeling outstanding. Dr. De Vita is an incredible surgeon, he is the best!! God bless Doctor De Vita and his fantastic courteous and caring team. Just want to say thank you very much to all for been good care of me! :)

3 weeks ago I had rhinoplasty performed by Doctor DeVita and not only did his work change my life, but it also influenced what I want to study in college. I have wanted this surgery since I was 13 years old, and now being 18 right before entering my freshman year of college, my parents let me have this surgery. I was so nervous going through all the consultations and also anxious because my time was limited. From the moment Doctor DeVita met with me, I knew he was the surgeon for me. I can't express enough how life changing this was for me and what an amazing doctor he was, I was so lucky to have him perform this surgery for me. Everyday I see myself in the mirror and I couldn't be happier :)

Dr DaVita is a professional friendly face that you want to see. He performed a procedure where previously I had open heart surgery (with several complications) and the scar is definitely something I will live looking at. I've gotten many compliments on how my scar looks. He's always friendly and concerned with how you feel. I had no choice with this surgery, but I can't wait to return for a tummy tuck !

Dr. DeVita is an excellent plastic surgeon. He had done both my rhinoplasty and otoplasty and I’m very happy with the results. My ears are now perfectly symmetrical and my new nose fits my face much better. Dr. DeVita took time to understand what I was looking for and also offered his recommendations as to what would work well with the rest of my face/body. On the day of the surgery, he made me feel calm and addressed all my concerns. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.
