Eyelid Surgery to put the sparkle back in your eyes
Droopy eyelids, pockets of fat, and dark shadows beneath the eyes age the face and cause the eyes to appear puffy and tired. Fortunately, cosmetic eyelid surgery can tighten and smooth the critical area around the eyes for a refreshed look.

He is a Board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in facial surgery and eyelid rejuvenation for men and women at the Miami Center for Plastic Surgery in Miami Beach, FL.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical intervention aimed at enhancing the visual aspect of the eyelids. This cosmetic procedure is often performed to reduce the signs of aging, such as drooping or extra skin around the eyelids. It can also correct vision problems caused by sagging eyelids that interfere with a patient’s visual fields.
During blepharoplasty, a skilled cosmetic surgeon will remove excess fat and skin from each upper or lower eyelid. The goal is to create an even distribution of weight and firmness throughout the entire area in order to restore a youthful appearance to the eyes. If necessary, he/she may also reposition some muscles and tissues in order to improve peripheral vision and field of vision. In addition, he/she may reposition sagging eyebrows if needed. Blepharoplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia and takes one to two hours depending on the complexity of the case. Depending on each patient’s individual needs and aesthetic goals, different surgical techniques may be used during this procedure in order to minimize scarring or blurred vision after surgery.
During a blepharoplasty consultation, Dr. Salloum will evaluate the patient’s eyelid skin and fatty deposits, discuss their desired cosmetic purposes, and determine if there is excess eyelid skin that needs to be removed. He may also recommend additional procedures such as a brow lift (as brow lift and blepharoplasty are often compared) or laser resurfacing treatments in order to achieve the desired outcome. Depending on the patient’s individual needs, Dr. Salloum will then determine which type of blepharoplasty techniques and type of anesthesia are best suited for their surgical treatment. He may also recommend further evaluation of any underlying medical conditions that could affect the results of the procedure.
Preparing for your Eyelid procedure
Preparing for your eyelid procedure includes getting a comprehensive eye exam to check for any double vision and the strength of the eyelid muscles. In some cases, your doctor may also recommend imaging tests such as ultrasound or MRI in order to get a better look at the upper eyelid skin and fatty deposits. Additionally, you should also avoid consuming alcohol for 24 hours prior to surgery and stop taking certain medications one week before the procedure. Finally, you should make sure that all instructions from your doctor are followed closely in order to ensure a successful outcome.

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure used to remove excess skin, fat deposits, and redundant tissue from the eyelids. This common cosmetic procedure can help reduce drooping eyelids or vision problems caused by other underlying medical conditions. It is usually performed as an outpatient procedure using local anesthesia and takes one to two hours depending on the complexity of the case. During surgery, a skilled cosmetic surgeon will remove excess fat and skin from each upper or lower eyelid in order to restore a youthful appearance to the eyes. He/she may also reposition some muscles and tissues in order to improve peripheral vision and field of vision if needed. After blepharoplasty, patients typically experience minimal downtime with slight swelling, bruising, or redness around the eyes that should subside within 7-10 days after surgery.
Types of Blepharoplasty
Eyelid surgery is customized based on your goals, and a different type of surgery may include only upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or a combination of both.
Upper Eyelid Surgery
Dr. Salloum creates a small incision along the upper eyelid crease before removing excess skin, fat, and muscle drooping over the eyes. He carefully closes the incision to create a defined crease without visible scars.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
Dr. Salloum creates a small incision below the lashes, hidden in the natural crease, or inside the lower lid. He removes any excess fat and sagging skin, tightens the muscles, and smooths away bags and wrinkles before closing the incisions.
Double eyelid surgery, or Asian eyelid surgery, makes the eyelid crease more visible. Much of the Asian population has no natural fold in the eyelids. Double eyelid blepharoplasty makes applying make-up easier and the eyes look wider.

Risks of Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty complications are rare, but there are risks associated with every cosmetic surgery. Eyelid surgery risks and side effects may include swelling and bruising, bleeding, anesthesia complications, dry eyes, infection, sensitivity to bright light, changes in vision, persistent pain, and the possible need for revision surgery. Surgical risks are reduced when the procedure is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.
Eyelid Surgery Recovery
Your recovery process following eyelid surgery will depend on the extent of your procedure and the individual healing capabilities of your body. You should plan for some downtime, which may include cold compresses or ice packs to reduce swelling, as well as herbal supplements to speed up the healing process. You should also avoid strenuous activities or exercise during the first few weeks of recovery. With proper care and rest, you should be able to enjoy a full recovery and remarkable results in no time.
