Nothing ages a face more than the appearance of bags on your lower lids or hooding of the upper eyelid, making us appear tired and older. An eyelid lift will dramatically improve your overall appearance by giving you more a youthful and refreshed look. Lifting and tightening the skin around your eyes effectively addresses this problem where loose skin, surplus fatty tissue and relaxed muscle in the eyelids are removed to tighten the skin. The board-certified facial plastic surgeons at The MIAMI Institute have performed thousands of these procedures.
"Beautiful eyes are like eloquence to speech"
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a procedure to remove fat, usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. At The MIAMI Institute, our surgical team can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes - features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision. However, it won't remove crow's feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under your eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows. While it can add an upper eyelid crease to Asian eyes, it will not erase evidence of your ethnic or racial heritage. The procedure can be performed on either the lower or upper eyelids, but many patients prefer to have surgery on both for a more balanced correction. The best candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in their expectations. Most are 35 or older, but if droopy, baggy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have eyelid surgery at a younger age.
