Eyelid Surgery

The eyes are often the first features we notice in others. They can convey our emotions and reflect our personalities. Unfortunately, the delicate, thin skin around our eyes is especially susceptible to the signs of aging, such as sagging and wrinkling that can undermine the vibrant, youthful energy we feel inside. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Diaz uses blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, to help his patients in Melbourne, Florida, renew their upper and lower eyelids for a reinvigorated, well-rested appearance that lasts for years.

Dr. Diaz approaches every aesthetic enhancement with compassion and care, revealing your unique beauty. To find out how eyelid surgery can improve your appearance, request a consultation online or call our office in Melbourne at (321) 951-2639.

Your Beautiful Face

Eyelid surgery can have a transformative effect on the entire face. Concerns about the eyelids are often age-related, but some people have naturally downturned or sagging eyelids. Surgery on the upper lids, lower lids, or both can help remedy these concerns. You may be a candidate for blepharoplasty if you’re bothered by any of the following:

  • Excess skin of the upper eyelids, causing drooping and wrinkling
  • Vision impairment due to sagging skin or droopines
  • Under-eye fat deposits that can cause bags or a puffy appearance

Dr. Diaz can help you determine whether you’re a candidate for eyelid surgery during your initial consultation. During this preliminary appointment, you and Dr. Diaz spend plenty of time discussing your health history, specific concerns, and desired outcomes.

In some cases, eyelid surgery may be covered, at least in part, by your private insurance provider. This is often the case when the upper eyelids droop enough to affect your vision. Insurance coverage may require documentation from your primary care provider or ophthalmologist. Contact your insurance company to learn more about your eligibility for coverage.

What to Expect

Dr. Diaz usually performs upper eyelid surgery under local, although some patients may opt to have light sedation. Lower eyelids are can be performed with the upper eyelids, usually under general anesthesia in our exclusive and private Riverview Surgery Center

Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. For the upper eyelids, Dr. Diaz hides the incisions within the natural crease of the lids. Once these incisions heal, they create small, fine scars that practically invisible. For the lower lids, the incision is either just below the lower lashes or sometimes even within the eyelid itself, resulting in a faint scar that can blend easily within the lash line.

Depending on your concerns, Dr. Diaz may remove fat deposits, remove excess skin, or manipulate the underlying tissue around your eyes for a tighter, smoother result. He closes the incisions with sutures. On its own, blepharoplasty is typically a brief procedure, although it may be performed in conjunction with a facelift for an overall rejuvenation.

Your Recovery

Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure. You will need a friend or loved one to drive you home and care for you for a few days.” Discomfort is quite manageable with prescribed medication and topical treatments. Most people feel comfortable enough to return to work and other social activities after about 1 week. By this time, Dr. Diaz will have removed your stitches, and you should notice a marked decrease in swelling and bruising. He will give you specific directions about when you can return to certain activities, such as wearing contact lenses or exercising.

In the long term, you can enjoy your results for many years by keeping your eyes and eyelids protected from the sun. Many of Dr. Diaz’s blepharoplasty patients are pleasantly surprised by how easy the process is, especially considering how much brighter and more alert their faces look afterward.

Amazing experience here! I immediately felt at ease with Dr. Diaz and MA. Wendy. Dr.Diaz is incredibly thorough, and patient. He answered all of my crazy questions. The day of surgery, I was quite nervous. And again, Dr. Diaz and his OR staff put me at ease. This was a wonderful experience for me, and I highly recommend Dr. Diaz and his wonderful staff.

The staff here is Amazing - Very attentive, and Wendy Capotosta, who was in with me is so friendly, and makes you feel at ease immediately. Dr. Diaz, is extremely thorough, attentive, while being very down to earth and honest. I definitely will be going there again for other procedures if needed. The Spa ladies are great too and so informative (Amy & Amy) I trust them to give me what is best for the desired effects I am looking for. I looked at lots of places and reviews before selecting Dr. Diaz - The office lives up to the 5 star reviews you will see. I rarely review places - but chose to do this because I have had that positive of an experience, and will continue to go there. 🙂

I had a silicone leakage from a previous augmentation. Dr. Diaz made me feel very confident in my decision to have replacement surgery, explaining why it should be done and the steps to be taken to correct the situation. Wendy helped guide me through from the initial consult to all of my follow up visits. The personalized service in addition to the superb (!) surgical outcome made me very glad that I chose Dr. Diaz.

Dr. Diaz preformed a tummy tuck with lipo on me in Feb and I cannot say enough about my experience as well as my results with Dr. Diaz. From the time you walk in the door you are treated like family, not just another patient and not just another number. From my consultation to my final post op appointment everything was simply amazing. Dr. Diaz was extremely attentive, patient and attended every one of my appointments. Having this surgery was a huge commitment and Dr. Diaz and his extraordinary staff made me feel extremely comfortable answering all of my questions and concerns. Dr. Diaz is a honest and true surgeon who deeply cares for his patients, he will give you his cell number to be able to reach him after hours. Not only did Dr. Diaz exceed all of my expectations so did his remarkable staff. Especially Megan, who had been a part of the team for over 10 years, and Wendy both with their knowledge and compassion.

Dr. Diaz and his staff are outstanding! You can expect compassion, open communication and top notch customer service from this practice. Dr. Diaz went above and beyond my expectations. I learned that I am susceptible to Malignant Hyperthermia during the pre op process and he made sure that I got exactly what I needed to stay safe and called me directly to explain the process every step of the way. 3 months post op and I am very pleased! I highly recommend Dr. Diaz

Dr. Diaz is SIMPLY AMAZING! His work is flawless & pure art. I couldn’t be happier w/ my results & the entire process. Toni, the patient care coordinator who was extremely helpful & friendly. Pam at the front desk & all of the nurses that helped me before, during & after were always very sweet. The day of the operation since he has his own surgery center connected to his office I didn’t have to go into a hospital & deal with everyone like you normally would. This day I only saw Dr. Diaz, my anesthesiology who was so professional & the 2 nurses, this experience made me feel like I was family not just a patient to them. This is a TOP tier team! I went for a breast lift w/ implant exchange. Dr. D was very informative & took the time to explain everything. I wanted to go bigger but wasn’t sure how big so I gave Dr. Diaz full control to work his magic on me. That’s HOW MUCH I trusted him & I am thrilled w/ the results. Dr. D is truly amazing both personality & talent. Highly recommended!!!

Had an INCREDIBLE BA experience with Dr. Diaz and his amazing staff. Dr. Diaz made sure you were completely informed about the surgical procedure - how he does it, the risks and realistic expectations, what he’s putting in your body, and WHY he does it the way he does. Dr. Diaz answered all of my questions (not that I had many, he was so thorough). I felt comfortable throughout the entire process. I am THRILLED with my results! More details- Upfront and transparent about pricing and everything you’ll need for the procedure and preop/postop. Was happy to save 6% just by paying with a check (instead of credit). EVERYONE in the office is friendly, professional, and truly compassionate. They make you feel comfortable and well-cared for. You see a lot of them in the weeks following your procedure! Wendy, Pam, and the BOARD-CERTIFIED ANESTHESIOLOGIST are all especially great. (Anesthesiologist being board-certified is a big deal). Everything is done in the same place - your consultation, preop, your SURGERY, and postop appointments. It was one of the things that made me feel more comfortable with the process. The only out-of-house thing you have to do is bloodwork and a C19 test, which took a total of 10 minutes combined (and they’re included in your procedure costs).
