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, deep creases and lines in the brow and 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.

Before Eyelid Surgery

Before Dr. Zuriarrain performs any plastic surgery, 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.

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.
