Eye Lid Surgery in Miami
The eyes are an indicator of our age perhaps more than any other part of our body. As you age, the delicate skin composing our eyelids become flaccid and puffy giving you a tired or fatigued appearance. This excess skin on the upper eyelid and puffiness on the lower eyelid is what makes you look dull and tired. In some cases the flaccid skin can even interfere with vision and cause wrinkles on your forehead because of the strained brow and forehead muscles trying to further open your eyes. The excess skin and fat removed in Miami eyelid surgery is crucial to renewing your appearance and giving you a rested, younger look. Our physicians and surgeons are recognized in Miami for their professionalism and dedication to the community. For patients in Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and South Florida, who want an instant rejuvenation, eyelid surgery noticeably turns back the clock on your face. All incisions and sutures in Miami blepharoplasty or Miami eyelid surgery are hidden in the crease of the eyelid to minimize any sign of surgery.
What should I expect after surgery?
Following surgery, patients should be ready for some swelling and bruising in the areas treated. Difficulty opening the eye and tightness are also common in the healing process. You will always have contact with our office and surgeons to address any question you have. You are not alone through the journey; we are with you 100% of the time.
Patients undergoing Miami eyelid surgery have their stitches removed roughly 7 days after surgery and could return to work in as little as 10 days. Follow-ups with your surgeon are scheduled until you are healed.
