Your eyes are one of the features a person notices about you first. Your eyes need to look their best to make an excellent first impression. Unfortunately, eyes also show age first. If you’re wrinkling or sagging prematurely in the eye area, several eyelid procedures are done by Seduction Cosmetic Center™ in Miami, FL. can keep your eye area looking smooth and youthful.
Some of the eyelid surgeries our doctors offer include:
• Reconstructive surgery.
· Ptosis surgery (droopy eyelids).
Usually, eyelid skin appears smooth. But over time, fat bulges, age, sun damage, and heredity all can play a factor in causing lines and bumps around your eyes. When your eyelids start to bag or sag, eyelid rejuvenation surgery can help you regain smooth eyelids.
Each surgery has a different level of complexity, so times for the procedure and recovery differ. To find out what Seduction Cosmetic Center™ can do for you, you’ll need to schedule a consultation for an evaluation and examination.
Blepharoplasty gets done on either the upper or lower eyelids. If both eyelids are done, the top eyelid gets corrected first. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty might get approved by your insurance if your eyelid disturbs your peripheral vision. A small incision removes fat and excess skin, and a muscle might need tightening.
Ptosis means that your upper eyelid droops. Blepharoplasty can also treat this condition.
The process for lower eyelid blepharoplasty remains similar to the upper lid procedure, but a small incision made inside the eyelid gets done to remove fat.
Using Local Anesthesia for Eyelid Surgery
Many eyelid cosmetic procedures use only local anesthetic for pain. During local anesthetic procedures, you’ll get both an oral sedative and local anesthetic. Using this type of anesthetic makes your recovery time much shorter as compared to using general anesthesia. You won’t feel discomfort, but you’ll feel the doctor working during the procedure.
Some more complex eyelid surgeries require general anesthesia or IV sedation to keep you comfortable. Our main goal at Seduction Cosmetic Center™ remains to provide you with the great new look you’d like while avoiding any discomfort.
About Eyelid Surgery
If you’re having your upper eyelids worked on, excess fat and skin get removed to give you a refreshed, younger appearance. When your lower eyelids need surgery, fat and a little excess skin get removed, so your eyes don’t bag anymore. Surgical procedures might also occur in both your upper and lower eyelids. Most of these surgeries get done on an outpatient basis.
You can combine these procedures with non-surgical treatment like a chemical peel to increase your youthful appearance.
After Eyelid Surgery
Most patients report that they only need pain medication for a day or two after surgery. After three days, over-the-counter medicines only should be required.
Your eyelid surgery process keeps your scarring to the bare minimum because of your doctor’s high skill level. You’ll get a complete list of dos and don’ts after the procedure.
