Why Would I Need Eyelid Surgery?

The aging process, and its effects, are eventualities both men and women have to deal with. As we age, the facial muscles become weaker, and we cease to produce the necessary amounts of collagen to keep our skin looking youthful. The primary area which shows age is the face. We begin to notice wrinkles by the eyes and deep creases and lines in the brow as our skin begins to lose elasticity.

Dr. Zuriarrain understands how any patient’s self-confidence can receive a severe shock due to the effects of aging. Anyone is a possible candidate for a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) procedure. We will work together, after your thorough consultation from Dr. Z, to establish your beauty goals and how best to achieve them.

What is a Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, sometimes known as eyelid surgery, is a type of cosmetic surgical procedure that removes excess skin from the eyelids and addresses other aesthetic concerns in the eye area. The procedure can correct both upper and lower eyelid issues.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty

Sagging and wrinkled eyelids can not only make you look older than you are, but they can also make you appear tired or drowsy when you’re not.

Blepharoplasty can provide a younger appearance as well as give you a more awake, alert look. Benefits of blepharoplasty include:

  • Tighter, more lifted eye look
  • Brighter eye appearance
  • Correcting vision in very droopy eyelids

Am I a
Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

Dr. Zuriarrain understands how any patient’s self-confidence can receive a severe shock due to the effects of aging. Anyone is a possible candidate for a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) procedure. We will work together, after your thorough consultation with Dr. Z, to establish your beauty goals and how best to achieve them.

Before Eyelid Surgery

Before Dr. Zuriarrain performs any plastic surgery in Miami, there will be a consultation in the Miami, FL clinic. This is held to determine the goals and expectations of the patient, and to also deliver any options or alternatives for the procedure. In some instances, blepharoplasty will be performed along with a brow lift.

With a thorough physical examination, Dr. Zuriarrain will check skin elasticity, fat deposits, or the extent of hooding or drooping over the eyes. He will discuss the site locations for the incisions, and how they will be hidden in place like below the lash line, in the natural creases of the upper lids, or inside the lower eyelid.

He will run through medical histories to make sure there are no medications, herbal supplements, nicotine products or recreational drugs being used. Once this is resolved, he will describe in detail what will happen in the preliminary steps of the procedure and answer any questions you may have.

During Blepharoplasty Procedures

Patients can have either local or general anesthesia, and the surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. If the eyelid surgery is being performed as a standalone operation, this takes around two hours. During your blepharoplasty Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Zuriarrain will make incisions in the areas discussed during the consultation for each area that will be receiving attention. Once these are made, then excess fat will be repositioned and tissues lifted and placed in the optimum positions. Any excess skin or tissue will be trimmed before incisions are closed and gauze used to cover areas.

Upper Blepharoplasty

This type of blepharoplasty adjusts the muscles and extra skin on the upper eyelid and addresses unwanted hooded eyes.

Lower Blepharoplasty

This procedure removes fat or excess skin from the lower eyelids to reduce bags and wrinkles.

Double or “Asian” Blepharoplasty

This technique adds a more pronounced eyelid crease and enhances the lids’ contours.

After Blepharoplasty Procedures

Dr. Zuriarrain will advise patients to walk around for the first couple of days after their blepharoplasty. This promotes healing and helps reduce the chances of blood clots forming. The majority of Miami blepharoplasty patients are able to return to regular activities after around ten days.

Most of the swelling and bruising will diminish during this time, although patients are advised not to undertake anything too physically taxing during the first few weeks. Any scarring will fade after a few months. Light cosmetics may be used to conceal any remaining bruising. When in the sun, use sunglasses for further protection.
