Blepharoplasty in Miami

One of the simplest facial procedures that gives patients a more youthful look is blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or eyelid lift. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the lower eyelids, upper eyelids, or both. Double eyelid surgery can improve facial balance and reduce sagging eyelids, while also giving patients a youthful, rested result.

Good Candidates For Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty Procedure Details

Blepharoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia in about one hour. Depending on the incisions and the amount of tissue to be removed, Dr. Reyna may recommend intravenous anesthesia as well.

Dr. Reyna will make the surgical incisions where they will be concealed by the natural creases of the eyelids. For upper eyelid lifts, the incision will be made in the natural crease about the eye. For lower eyelid lifts to remove bags under the eyes, the incision is made just below the lower lash line or within the lower eyelid itself. Double eyelid surgery may include multiple incisions in order to best improve facial balance.

After the incisions are made, excess tissue and fat is removed or redistributed. The muscles and skin of the eye are tightened. Any excess skin is removed. The incisions are gently closed with surgical tape or removable sutures.

Your eyelid lift may also be combined with other common facial plastic surgery procedures, including a facelift, brow lift, or rhinoplasty. It is important to remember that these other procedures may be recommended to meet your cosmetic goal, as the overall facial aging process may have an effect on the droopiness or sagging of the skin around the eyes.

Your Results and Recovery

Your results will gradually appear as swelling and bruising go down. Within a few weeks, patients can expect a more youthful and alert facial appearance. Your eyes will be more defined, with younger looking facial contours.

During recovery, you may experience pain, discomfort, and irritation around the eyes. There may be redness and tearing for the first several days. Most symptoms are easily controlled with cold compresses and medication. It is extremely important to wear sun protection, including sun screen and sunglasses with 100% UV protection to protect the vulnerable skin.

Strenuous activity should be avoided for up to two weeks. Most patients can return to work in about a week.
