This type of procedure may be done for cosmetic reasons if you’re unhappy about your appearance as you age. It may also be a functional procedure meant to restore vision by removing overhanging skin. It can also be done for both reasons. This kind of procedure is recommended if you’re uncomfortable with folds, saggy skin, or bags under your eyes. It’s often done with other procedures, such as an upper blepharoplasty or facelift, and together this can rejuvenate your features and help you regain your self-confidence.
Your eyelids are likely to feel sore and tender, which is normal. You will need to apply cold compresses for at least two days after surgery. This will alleviate your discomfort and speed up your overall healing. You can take over-the-counter pain relievers if you need to, or you can talk to Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz about prescription pain medication.
You will have some swelling and bruising around your eyes for up to two weeks. There may also be some bleeding and soreness because of the sensitivity of the skin around your eyes. You’ll be able to start wearing your glasses right away, but you should avoid wearing contact lenses until the swelling is completely gone. You should also avoid any eye makeup. Patients often take at least ten to fourteen days off of work, school, or other obligations to recover.
Not really. Any incisions that are made are usually inside the eyelid crease or hidden in the folds of your eyes. This decreases their visibility as you heal and will fade over time.
Generally speaking, both upper and lower blepharoplasties are elective procedures and as such, not covered by most insurance providers. However, if you require a blepharoplasty for medical reasons, some or all of the costs may be covered. There are also financing and payment options available, which you can review during your consultation.
Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz requires that any patient interested in receiving blepharoplasty in Miami needs to have a consultation prior to scheduling surgery to establish their eligibility. Please note that if you have any eye disease, including glaucoma or dry eye, you may need to see an ophthalmologist ensure your eye conditions are stable prior to receiving a blepharoplasty. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will evaluate your concerns and the results you want to achieve and will help you plan for your procedure.
