Eyelid Surgery Miami

The eyes are often called the windows to the soul and are the most recognizable features of the face. Wide, gorgeous eyes add facial beauty and proportion, while those that appear lined, wrinkled, or droopy close off the face and make individuals appear older than they are. Eyelid surgery in Miami at Icon Cosmetic Center can reduce puffiness and drooping that could prematurely age the face. In some cases, it can even correct structural issues that could be limiting one’s line of vision.

What Is Eyelid Surgery or Blepharoplasty?

With increasing age, the fragile skin around the eyes naturally begins to droop and darken. However, this can be reversed with an eyelid surgery in Miami. This procedure, sometimes called an eyelid lift, is used to address chronically puffy tissues or drooping skin found on both the upper and lower eyelids. It can improve the contours of the eyes, reduce the appearance of dark bags under the eyes, and create a rejuvenated appearance. This surgical procedure can either be conducted independently or combined with other facial plastic surgeries, like a brow lift, to achieve a more striking and comprehensive impact.

Eyelid Surgery Candidates

Unwanted eyelid changes are most frequently noticed beginning in one’s thirties, but they will worsen throughout midlife. The majority of candidates are between the ages of 35 and 65. While patients older than this could receive this surgery, the skin is usually thin and loses much of its tone and elasticity with advancing age. In addition, the ideal candidate should meet the following qualifications.

  • Be in generally good health
  • Be a nonsmoker
  • Have realistic goals for the outcome of the procedure
  • Not have serious, chronic vision concerns

How Does Eyelid Surgery Work?

There are a number of ways that our plastic surgeons can perform an eyelid lift. They may remove skin and excessive tissues that are destroying the sight lines and proportions of the eyes, or they may add or remove fat under the thin eyelid tissues to create a more youthful appearance. Plastic surgeons may address the upper eyelid alone, the lower eyelid alone, or both eyelids in a bilateral procedure.

Upper Blepharoplasty

With an upper blepharoplasty, only the upper eyelid is addressed. Usually, the incision can be well hidden in the natural crease along the top of the eyelid. It will give the surgeon access to all of the tissues, skin, and muscles in the area.

Lower Blepharoplasty

With a lower blepharoplasty, only problems with the lower eyelid are addressed. The plastic surgeon will frequently make the incision directly beneath the lower eyelashes, where any resulting scarring will be hidden. However, in some cases, the surgeon may instead elect to conceal any scars with a transconjunctival incision made inside the lower eyelid.

Bilateral Blepharoplasty

A double or bilateral procedure is done to address problems with drooping, sagging, or puffiness around both the upper and lower eyelids or to reduce narrow eyelid folds to create a wider eye shape.

Preparation Before Eyelid Surgery

Prior to any eye bag surgery, patients will complete initial consultations with the plastic surgeon to ensure that they are good candidates for the procedure and to get answers to any questions they might have. The surgeon will also ask about any medical conditions, current medications, and previous surgeries and will discuss surgical options to create the ideal course of treatment.

Following this, patients may need further medical examinations along with laboratory testing. Some may need to adjust the medications that they are taking, especially those that increase the risk of bleeding with surgery.

Recovery After Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery performed at the Icon Cosmetic Center in Miami is a same-day procedure, providing patients with the opportunity to recover fully within the comfort of their own homes. Following the procedure, patients will spend some time in a recovery room before being sent home with complete instructions on caring for their surgical sites.

Patients may have cold compresses or gauze over their eyelid incisions following the procedure. They may have some swelling and bruising around the area, along with mild discomfort that can be controlled with over-the-counter or prescription medications. Within two weeks, most of these issues should clear up, and patients will feel good about heading out into public again.

The results of this surgery are permanent. However, complete results may not be seen for several months until swelling in the area dissipates completely.

Eyelid Surgery Miami Cost

The average cost of this surgery is between $3,000 and $4,000. However, these numbers usually do not include additional necessary expenses, such as anesthesia or laboratory testing. Patients may also need to pay for additional medical consultations and prescription medications during the recovery period. Of course, eyelid surgery costs also depend on the complexity of the surgery. Patients will be able to learn more specifics about potential eyelid surgery costs following their initial consultations.
