Release the true beauty felt inside with cosmetic eye surgery from a Miami specialist.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as eyelid lift surgery, can be performed by Dr. Jhonny Salomon in Miami, Florida. This procedure addresses concerns with extraneous tissue around the eyes, that can mask and detract from underlying beauty. Blepharoplasty with an expert surgeon can reshape the eye area using advanced techniques. The manipulation of fat and muscle, or even the removal of extra skin, can successfully correct under eye bags, darkened skin, puffiness, lines and wrinkles, and hooded eyelids.
A relatively simple surgery can produce significant cosmetic benefits to restore youth and confidence.
Dr. Jhonny Salomon is an esteemed plastic surgeon with a history of excellent results in blepharoplasty surgery.
Who is the Best Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
The majority of blepharoplasty patients today are aging individuals who wish to regain the youth that they feel inside. The eyes are amongst the first features to change on the face. UV damage and the effects of gravity on aging skin can create the need for blepharoplasty in Miami.
Blepharoplasty also offers functional improvements. Aging patients who experience discomfort (often when blinking) can find relief with this procedure. Excess skin around the eyes can obstruct vision, and in these cases, blepharoplasty is often considered a necessary medical procedure.
There is no age minimum when it comes to blepharoplasty. Patients of all ages can utilize the surgery for functional or cosmetic benefits. Many younger patients with drooping or tired eyes have turned to blepharoplasty to bring out their natural beauty. Genetics and other factors could lead to premature aging around the eyes, and blepharoplasty is considered to be an effective remedy.
Blepharoplasty is performed around one of the most sensitive areas of the body and will directly impact tissues around the eyes. Surgery may not be possible when certain eye or skin diseases are present.
Surgeries are performed under anesthesia, so patients must be in good health. The ideal candidate should also have realistic expectations about surgery outcomes. Risks and aftercare should be fully understood.
At Dr. Jhonny Salomon Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, individuals are fully assessed throughout the consultation process. This ensures that expectations, risks, and other factors are completely understood prior to surgery. Dr. Salomon is a board certified plastic surgeon and follows a strict code of conduct and ethics. This ensures that there are no surprises during or after the consultation process.
Upper Blepharoplasty in Miami
Blepharoplasty can be performed on both upper and lower eyelids. In some cases, patients will only need to address cosmetic or functional concerns on one of the other.
A common upper blepharoplasty procedure performed by Dr. Jhonny Salomon is the treatment of pronounced fat pockets and excess (redundant) skin around the eyelid. Fat and skin can be removed or reshaped to achieve the desired aesthetic or functional results. Drooping eyelids (eyelid ptosis) can be treated by tightening muscle around the eye while also removing any necessary skin and fat.
The incision for blepharoplasty in Miami is made in the natural eyelid crease. Dr. Salomon will make a small incision during surgery to access tissues below the surface of the skin. Necessary adjustments are made using a thermal scalpel that offers maximum visualization and superior surgical control.
Dr. Salomon is a prestigious plastic surgeon with extensive experience. He is recognized around the world for his talents. Excellent judgement and conservative alterations ensure that there is no over-reduction during upper blepharoplasty procedures.
Extra skin is removed at the end of the surgery, which helps to tighten tissues and remove fine lines and wrinkles. Sutures are applied to the eyelids to facilitate the healing process.
Lower Blepharoplasty in Miami
Blepharoplasty performed on the lower eyelids will address cosmetic and functional concerns below the eyes.
As aging occurs, fatty tissues beneath the eyes can move forward and interact with fat and tissue around the upper cheeks. This forms shadows that can appear as dark circles under and around the edges of the eyes. In addition to darkening, the buildup and movement of fat can also cause bags under the eyes.
Lower blepharoplasty in Miami can be performed to eliminate under eye bags by altering skin and removing fat. Eyes are rejuvenated, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing and youthful appearance. The incision for lower blepharoplasty in Miami is made just underneath the lower lash line. In some cases, the incision is made in the lower eyelid. This is known as the transconjunctival method. Dr. Jhonny Salomon can expertly redistribute, lessen, or remove the fat deposits that cause puffiness around the eyes. Muscle and skin can be altered during surgery to achieve the intended cosmetic results.
The extent of fat removal is dependent on the individual. Patients who have experienced eye bags or puffiness will in many cases benefit from complete removal of the fat pad.
In cases where concerns are related to descending fat pads (due to gravity and aging), Dr. Salomon can also perform work to address the tear trough (the curved groove under the eyelid.)
Autologous fat transfers may sometimes be utilized to create the desired aesthetic. Fat can be harvested and transferred from the lower body to produce excellent results in surgery.
Blepharoplasty Recovery and Aftercare
Blepharoplasty in Miami is performed under anesthetic, which minimizes pain directly after surgery. As the anesthetic wears off, pain and swelling will occur, before beginning to subside within the first week. Pain medication can be prescribed when necessary. An antibiotic cream may also be needed to aid the healing process. Dr. Salomon will provide advice during pre and post-op consultation, ensuring patients are clear on any steps that need to be taken at home.
It usually takes a full month (sometimes longer) for patients to see the complete aesthetic results of blepharoplasty. The results become more apparent as the area around the eye completes the healing process.
In most cases, patients can return to work within a week after the surgery.
