Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, helps to rejuvenate the droopy and sagging eyelids. Eye bags, as they are often called, give an impression of fatigue and age. By removing the fatty tissue and skin that create them, our plastic surgeons are able to give patients of Miami eyelid surgery a more rested, youthful appearance. In extreme cases, drooping eyelids may also block peripheral vision, making blepharoplasty important for safety. Eyelid surgery is also popular with Miami and Fort Lauderdale-area patients as a complement to brow lift surgery.
The cosmetic surgeons of Coral Gables Cosmetic operates on Miami blepharoplasty patients through incisions in the creases of the eyelid in order to hide visible signs of surgery. The doctor trims away extra skin, removes fatty tissue that tends to build up in the lower eyelid, and repositions the muscles to produce a tighter, smoother appearance before closing incisions to complete the blepharoplasty procedure.
Immediately after eyelid surgery, eyelid patients should be prepared for some swelling and soreness. Many people experience excessive tear production and temporary blurred vision, and some also report an increased sensitivity to light. Recovering patients will need to wear sunglasses to protect the eyes and use eye drops and a specially prescribed lotion to keep the eyes and incisions lubricated.
The surgeon usually removes blepharoplasty stitches about one week after surgery, and Miami eyelid patients can return to work after 10 days. Early bruising and swelling fade steadily over the following weeks.
