Blepharoplasty is designed to reduce puffiness around the eyes, eliminate bags under the eyes, and create smoother facial contours. At our practice, eyelid surgery can be used to smooth the skin and reduce fine lines above the eyes and/or below the eyes, and can also add an upper eyelid crease to patients of Asian descent.

Additional Eyelid Surgery Information
Am I a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery can provide an ideal solution for some patients who are unhappy with puffy eyes and bags under the eyes caused by excess skin or fatty tissue. In general, the best candidates for this procedure are middle-aged men and women who are in good health and have realistic expectations about what can be accomplished through surgery. In some cases, younger patients may also be good candidates for blepharoplasty.
Eyelid surgery can also be performed on Asian patients who lack an eyelid crease. Any patient who desires a fold to the area above the eyelashes is a good candidate for Asian double eyelid surgery.
The Eyelid Surgery Procedure
When performing blepharoplasty, Dr. Salzhauer will make several small incisions disguised in the natural creases of the eyelids. From these small openings, he can trim away excess skin and remove fatty tissue to smooth and tighten the area. In some cases where very little excess skin needs to be removed, it may be possible for Dr. Salzhauer to perform transconjunctival blepharoplasty, a procedure in which the only incision made is inside the lower eyelid.
The method of eyelid surgery will vary according to the specific needs of the patient, as will the recovery time. Blepharoplasty is often performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as face lift or rhinoplasty. As with any cosmetic surgery, detailed information about the procedure as it relates to your specific needs will be discussed at length during the initial blepharoplasty consultation at our Miami practice – serving Ft. Lauderdale and other areas. For more information about eyelid surgery, contact our office today.
Asian Double Eyelid Surgery
When creating an eyelid crease for Asian patients, Dr. Salzhauer removes excess tissue through incisions on the eyelids. He then creates a natural skin fold and closes the incisions with fine sutures. Following surgery, scars are completely hidden by the eyelid crease.
