Look Dramatically, Naturally Younger with Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery in Florida
POSTED ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25, 2011 AT 5:17 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin
As a natural part of the aging process, the fragile skin around the eyes loses elasticity, leading to drooping upper eyelids and puffiness below the eyes. If you’re tired of dealing with excess skin and muscle around the eyes, you may be a good candidate for blepharoplasty, or cosmetic eyelid surgery. Leading Florida plastic surgeons Dr. Roger Bassin and Dr. Rigo Mendoza have years of experience performing upper and lower blepharoplasty in Florida.
Upper blepharoplasty in Florida is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin, muscle, and fat from the upper eyelid and restores the eyelid crease. This procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, so patients can go home the same day as their surgery. In many cases, upper eyelid surgery is combined with eyelid ptosis repair and/or an internal brow lift, which both share common incision lines.

Lower blepharoplasty is ideal for treating circles and bags under the eyes that can dramatically age the face. As we age, the tissue layer that cushions the area behind the lower eyelids breaks down, leading to bulging fat pads beneath the eyes and contributing to the appearance of puffy under-eye bags. In order to provide patients with optimal lower blepharoplasty results, Dr. Bassin has developed an effective method of repositioning the lower eyelid fat pads to fill in under-eye circles. By shifting the fat pads rather than excising them entirely, Dr. Bassin and Dr. Mendoza are able to prevent the hollowed appearance that is often a result of too much tissue removal in traditional blepharoplasty surgery. In addition to upper blepharoplasty, lower eyelid surgery is often combined with laser resurfacing and a cheek mid-facelift.
The recovery period following upper and lower blepharoplasty is typically fairly short. Patients can expect some bruising and swelling for the first four to six days after surgery, and will be seen approximately six days after surgery for a post-operative visit.
