Best Surgeons For Eyelid Surgery Miami
At Miami Plastic Surgery®, we want you to look your best — whatever that means to you — down to the finest details. To do that, our board-certified facial plastic surgeons specialize in a range of treatments, such as blepharoplasty.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty refers to eyelid surgery, particularly for those unsatisfied with their eyelids' sagging or droopy appearance. During this procedure, we try to enhance your eyes by removing excess skin around them and tightening up the remainder.
There are many eyelid surgery methods due to the delicacy of the upper lid, lower lid or both. You may want to create a better crease in the eyelid. You may even combine blepharoplasty with a facelift or brow lift to get a more noticeable result. During your first consultation, you and your practitioner will speak at length about the results you hope to achieve and which approach will help you most.
The best candidates for eyelid surgery at Miami Plastic Surgery® are:
- Tired of looking fatigued due to age or genetic-related eyelid appearance.
- In good physical and emotional health.
- Have realistic expectations going into this procedure.
What Happens During a Blepharoplasty?
When you come in for your appointment, our patient care team will lead you to a private procedure room where you can prepare in peace. You'll speak with your facial plastic surgeon to ensure you're on the same page, and then they'll get started.
Blepharoplasty procedures require a local anesthesia to relax your eye muscles and IV sedation to keep you unconscious. To keep scarring at a minimum, we place small incisions in the natural creases and lash lines of your eyelids. Then, we'll remove skin and fat and rearrange as necessary until the result looks as close to your specifications as possible.

How Long Does It Take to Recover From Eyelid Surgery?
Since eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure, you'll be released to go home on the same day as your appointment. Make sure you have someone who can drive you home following the surgery and help you out as you begin recovery.
We recommend you give yourself a recovery time of one to two weeks, during which time your full attention is on resting and recuperating. Around days 10-14, you can begin resuming normal activities as you feel ready to. By this time, the results will be mostly visible, although complete healing may take a few months.
During recovery, you may notice some swelling, bruising and irritation, which you can soothe with a cold compress or prescribed medicine. Until the site is fully healed, make sure you wear sunscreen and darkly-tinted sunglasses any time you go outside.
