At the Aventura Center for Cosmetic Surgery, located just north of Miami, eyelid surgery is one of our most highly requested, and most satisfying procedures. Dr. Sam Gershenbaum uses an advanced approach to this life-changing procedure, and has become known as a leader for eyelid surgery - blepharoplasty in the Miami region.
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty at our center is performed only with the latest techniques and technology, because we understand that the eyes are responsible for an important part of facial expression; they project the feelings and emotions of happiness, sorrow, anger and fear. Many feel the eyes are the "windows to our soul." Yet, the eyes themselves are essentially expressionless structures.
In actuality, it is the contour of the skin, muscle, fat, brow and lashes around the eyes that produce expression. Wrinkles, lines, loose skin and fatty bulges slowly develop and become more prominent as time goes on. Sun exposure, genetic predisposition, weight fluctuations and smoking can also be contributing factors that together produce a tired and older appearance.
Eyelid surgery, technically known as blepharoplasty, can correct conditions that produce an aged, tired appearance by removing pouches or "fat bags," sagging eyelids, and excess folds of loose skin around the eyes. With skin folds, fat bulges removed, and eyelid creases improved, a more youthful and rested appearance can be achieved through eyelid surgery.
The fat in the eyelids is positioned behind a thin fibrous septum that, for various reasons, may become lax and allow bulging of orbital fat (the fat that surrounds and supports the eye). This is often seen as "bags" under the eyes that give that tired appearance. This fatty tissue can be removed or at times repositioned through eyelid surgery - blepharoplasty, which tightens of the lax fibrous septum. In other instances, the fibrous septum is opened and the fat is repositioned down and over the bony rim below the eye to conceal hollowness if present.
Our Miami eyelid surgery center understands that every patient has individual requirements. We formulate a procedure specific to each patient to ensure the best possible results. A comprehensive consultation and examination is needed to decide which procedure or combination of procedures is required to obtain the desired results.
