Conveniently located in Aventura, Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon, performs eyelid surgery for residents of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida.
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic eyelid procedure designed for the correction of congenital conditions, to minimize the effects of aging, and repair injuries. People often approach cosmetic surgeons to remove sagging skin or fat deposits around their eyes that make them appear older than their actual age. Dr. Rubinstein is skilled in performing blepharoplasty to enhance the eyelid appearance, while maintaining its functionality. Having eyelid surgery can enhance the patient’s appearance by minimizing puffiness due to too much fat under the eyes or by lifting eyelids that are droopy. Properly performed, eyelid surgery can remove fat, skin, or muscle that blocks vision or is visually unappealing. The average eyelid surgery patient is over 35 years of age and desires a more youthful appearance. Different forms of anesthesia are applied during eyelid surgery to minimize discomfort. The typical eyelid surgery takes several hours when both upper and lower eyelids require incisions, and fat tissue is to be removed. Dr. Rubinstein takes care to make such incisions in obscure locations along lashes or creases so that the scars are as unobtrusive as possible. If you are a resident of Miami, Fort Lauderdale or South Florida, and require a board-certified plastic surgeon for eyelid surgery, contact Dr. Rubinstein in Aventura to schedule an appointment.
