Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery, technically called blepharoplasty, can rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin, and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. In addition to functioning as a cosmetic procedure, blepharoplasty can also improve vision by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient’s field of vision. At Miami Aesthetic, the procedure is usually performed with local anesthesia in as little as 45 minutes. Dr. Pazmiño may recommend combining eyelid surgery with a brow lift, facelift or BOTOX® treatments to raise the eyebrows or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet or dark circles under the eyes.
