Blepharoplasty Eyelift Surgery in Miami, FL

With aging, the skin around the eyes can become droopy and saggy, making us look tired and older than we are. Eyelift surgery can help address these concerns and give you a more youthful, refreshed appearance. Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that addresses the lower and upper eyelids by removing excess fat (in some cases) and skin.

What is Eyelift Surgery?

Eyelift surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin, muscle, and fat from the eyelids.
This procedure can address various aesthetic concerns, such as droopy, puffy, or sagging eyelids, and can help patients achieve a more youthful appearance.

In addition to its cosmetic applications, eyelift surgery can have clinical uses. In some cases, excessive skin on the upper eyelid can impair vision, making it difficult for patients to see correctly. In such cases, eyelid surgery can help to improve vision by removing the excess skin that is obstructing the patient's field of vision.

What are the different types of eyelid surgery?

Different types of eyelid surgery are designed to address specific concerns. The three main types of eyelid surgery are:

Upper Eyelid Surgery

The upper eyelid surgery targets the upper eyelids. Dr. Askari will remove excess eyelid skin, muscle, and fat. This procedure can help to reduce drooping or sagging of the upper eyelids, which makes patients look tired or aged. During the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision along the natural crease of the eyelid and then remove or reposition the excess tissue. The incision is then closed with sutures. The eyelid skin is not the only part that can be removed. Excess fat pockets can be extracted to lighten the heaviness of the eyelid.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Lower eyelid surgery addresses concerns such as under-eye bags, dark circles, and sagging skin in the lower eyelids. During the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision on the inside of the lower eyelid and/or just below the lash line and then remove or reposition the excess tissue. Excess fat and excess skin are removed from the lower eyelid. The incision is then closed with sutures. The goal is to reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes.

Upper and Lower Eyelids Surgery

Upper and lower eyelid surgery is a combined procedure that addresses both the upper and lower eyelids. This procedure can help to reduce droopy eyelids, sagging upper eyelids, and bags under the eyes. This cosmetic surgery is excellent for addressing both upper and lower eyelids simultaneously. During the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions in both the upper and lower eyelids, remove or reposition the excess tissue, and then close the incisions with sutures.

Add-on surgery to an eyelid surgery

Brow lift

A brow lift, also known as a forehead lift, is a surgical procedure that raises the position of the eyebrows and smooths out forehead wrinkles, . It can help correct drooping or sagging eyebrows that may contribute to hooded upper eyelids.

Canthopexy

In addition to the eyelids surgery, a canthopexy surgery can be performed to tighten and reposition the outer corner of the eye. The goal is to improve the shape and support of the lower eyelid and prevent complications such as ectropion.

Skin Resurfacing

Skin resurfacing treatments can be performed as a complementary procedure to address fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging around the eyes. This can be done using various techniques, including chemical peels, laser resurfacing, or dermabrasion.

Who is a Candidate for Eyelift Surgery?

Before opting for eyelift surgery, it is important to consider a few factors. To be considered a candidate for eyelift surgery, you should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the procedure's outcome.

In addition, you should have specific concerns about the appearance of your eyes that can be addressed with eyelift surgery. This may include:

Droopy or sagging eyelids that impair your vision or make you appear tired or older than you feel

Excess skin or fat around the eyes that creates a puffy or swollen appearance

Deep, coarse wrinkles around the eyes that make you look perpetually tired, and older.

During your consultation with our surgeon, he will evaluate your medical history, overall health, and cosmetic goals to determine whether you are a good candidate for eyelift surgery. He will also discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure, as well as the expected recovery time and aftercare instructions.
It is important to remember that while eyelift surgery can be a highly effective way to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes, it is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Every patient is unique, and our plastic surgeon will tailor the procedure to your specific needs and goals to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

Recovery Process after an Eyelid Surgery

After undergoing an eyelift surgery, it is expected to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. However, following proper recovery protocols can help minimize these symptoms and ensure optimal healing.

The degree of swelling and bruising after the procedure varies depending on the extent of the surgery and the individual's response to the procedure. Most patients experience mild to moderate swelling and bruising, which typically peaks within the first few days after surgery and then gradually subsides over the following weeks.

The duration of recovery after eyelid surgery can vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the surgery and the individual's healing response. In general, most patients are able to resume normal activities within 7 to 10 days after surgery, although some may require up to two weeks of recovery time.

What to Do and
What Not to Do During Recovery

During the recovery period, it is important to follow your surgeon's instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of complications. Here are some general guidelines on what to do and what not to do during the recovery process:

Apply cold compresses to the treated area to reduce swelling and bruising. The surgeon may recommend using ice packs or frozen peas wrapped in a towel for the first 48 hours after surgery.

Take any prescribed pain medication as directed to manage discomfort.

Keep your head elevated while sleeping to minimize swelling.

Avoid strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and bending over for at least one week after surgery.

Avoid rubbing or touching the treated area to minimize the risk of infection.

Avoid smoking, as it can delay the healing process and increase the risk of complications.

Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with your surgeon to monitor your progress and ensure proper healing.
