Eyelid Surgery in Miami / Boynton Beach – Lee A. Gibstein, MD

Dr. Lee Gibstein is a Miami plastic surgeon with several decades of experience performing intricate facial rejuvenation procedures, including eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). When performed by the skillful hands of Dr. Gibstein, this procedure can refresh the appearance of the eyes and thereby rejuvenate and illuminate the whole face. Read on to learn why numerous men and women have sought out Dr. Gibstein as their blepharoplasty surgeon.

Eyelid Surgery Candidacy

Before recommending blepharoplasty, Dr. Lee A. Gibstein carefully evaluates the patient’s candidacy for this procedure. He examines the patient’s medical history to learn whether he or she is healthy enough to undergo surgery. Dr. Gibstein then asks about any medications the patient is currently taking. The goal of these pre-surgery steps is to maximize patient safety during surgery and lower the risk of complications.

Many of Dr. Gibstein’s Miami eyelid surgery patients are men and women in their 40s and 50s. However, younger and older patients can also benefit from this treatment. In general, anyone with droopy upper eyelids and/or excessive under-eye bags may be an eyelid surgery candidate. If you are unsure whether this procedure is for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Gibstein and ask for his advice.

Small Procedure, Great Effect

When interacting with you, most people concentrate their gaze on your eyes, which means that they might notice even small signs of aging in this area. Saggy, droopy upper eyelids and puffy bags beneath your eyes can make you look older and more tired than you feel.

By reducing the appearance of excess skin and fat from around the eyes, blepharoplasty not only rejuvenates the eye area. Because the eyes are the focal point of the face, eyelid surgery can make the whole face appear younger and more energetic, even though only a small area of the face is treated.

Eyelid Surgery: Important Considerations

While eyelid surgery can deliver amazing results when performed as a stand-alone treatment, sometimes the results are even better if blepharoplasty is performed in conjunction with other facial procedures. A particularly popular combination is eyelid surgery and brow lift. These two procedures work together to address the signs of aging in the upper face. Another commonly requested combination is blepharoplasty and facelift. As a leading Miami face lift surgeon, Dr. Gibstein customizes each facelift to precisely correspond to the age, aesthetic needs and desires of each patient. The result is a refreshed face that appears younger without the “pulled face” effect.

Blepharoplasty Procedure and Recovery

Eyelid surgery usually requires about two hours to complete and is performed under sedation anesthesia. Dr. Gibstein creates small incisions. In the upper eyelids, the incisions are placed in the natural creases of the lids. In the lower eyelids, they are placed below the eyelashes or inside the eye. Due to the inconspicuous locations of the incisions, they will be completely unnoticeable once you have healed.

As a top Miami blepharoplasty surgeon, Dr. Lee Gibstein uses a number of eyelid surgery techniques that he selects and customizes according to the needs of each patient. Generally, he removes excess skin and fatty tissue to gently tighten the skin around the eyes. Sometimes he also tightens the muscles. Immediately after the procedure, your eyes will most likely appear black and blue. This is completely normal. The swelling and bruising will subside during the next few days. Most of Dr. Gibstein’s eyelid surgery Miami patients look good enough to return to work within two weeks. The final results of eyelid surgery are often apparent after one month.
