What Is Blepharoplasty?

Also known as eyelid surgery, this procedure rejuvenates your eyes by removing extra skin or fat. Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz offers both upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty surgeries. During a Blepharoplasty Miami patients may choose to have both the upper eyelid and lower eyelid addressed at the same time, along with a facelift or brow lift treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

There are essentially two main reasons for having blepharoplasty surgery:

Functional: Because overhanging skin can reduce your ability to see, this addresses medical reasons for the procedure.

Cosmetic: If you’re uncomfortable with your appearance, you may elect to have this procedure to fix the extra skin around your eyes and improve self-confidence.

Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz requires that patients interested in receiving blepharoplasty in Miami need 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.

Blepharoplasty Procedure

Depending on whether you have upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or both, your procedure can take up to three hours. Your eyelid surgery may be longer if you choose to have other treatments done in combination. You will be placed under IV sedation (no general anesthesia required). After your procedures are finished, Miami blepharoplasty expert Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will stitch your incisions closed. This ensures your eyelids tighten as they finish healing. You’ll then be helped to a recovery room for monitoring to make sure there are no complications while you come out of sedation.

Types of Blepharoplasty Procedures

Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz specializes in Blepharoplasty, he and his team are known for exceptional aesthetic outcomes with a low complication rate. During your consultation, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz will determine which Blepharoplasty procedures you may need to obtain your aesthetic and functional goals.

We offer the following procedures:

Upper Blepharoplasty:

During upper blepharoplasty, extra skin and/or muscle on your upper eyelid will be removed. This will allow your eyelid to still open and close normally. If necessary, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz may move some extra fat from the middle of the eye to help reshape it.

Lower Blepharoplasty:

Lower Blepharoplasty is beneficial for patients with lower lid bags and very minor excess skin. Instead, an incision is made on the inside of your lower eyelid. Lower blepharoplasty often involves the removal of excess fat or skin, creating a refreshed, youthful look.

Tear Trough Correction:

The Tear Trough Correction procedure is designed to keep your orbital bone from looking too prominent, which makes the eyes look hollow and ages your face. This procedure repositions fat from the lower lid to the tear trough area and is done during a blepharoplasty with long-lasting results.

Blepharoplasty Recovery

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.

Blepharoplasty Results

Patients will note an overall improved facial aesthetic after undergoing blepharoplasty, as the surgery effectively addresses aesthetic issues, such as sagging and puffiness around the eyes. This can result in a more alert and youthful expression. The positive psychological impact of attaining a rejuvenated appearance through blepharoplasty can lead to a heightened self-confidence and an improved quality of life.

How much does Blepharoplasty Cost?

The cost of a blepharoplasty will vary greatly depending on the techniques used, and the extent of the surgery itself.

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.

Blepharoplasty FAQ

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.

Not really. Any incisions that are made during your blepharoplasty surgery, 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.
