Blepharoplasty in Southern California is one of the most commonly performed surgeries by our oculoplastic team. In fact, Blepharoplasty is the 3rd most commonly performed elective surgical procedure in the United States. Blepharoplasty refers to the removal of excess tissue to rejuvenate the upper and/or lower eyelids. Sometimes called the “eyelid lift”, it can restore a more youthful appearance.
Blepharoplasty is a very useful surgery for those looking to correct:
-Puffiness in the upper eyelids that results from excess fatty deposits
-Folds of skin created by loose or sagging skin. This affects the contour of the upper eyelid and can even impair vision.
-Excess skin and wrinkles of the lower eyelid
-Not just the upper and lower eyelids are treated, but bags under the eye that create an unrested look.
-Droopy lower eyelids
Upper Lid Blepharoplasty is performed by making an incision along the crease of the upper eyelid. Excess fatty tissue and sagging muscle are moved and the drooping skin is trimmed. The incision is hidden in the natural crease line. The eyelids and skin around the lids will be bruised and swollen for a short time following the procedure. Most people are able to return to their normal routine about a week after the surgery.
“Incisionless” Lower Lid Blepharoplasty is a procedure that removes excess fat from the lower eyelid without making any skin incision. With this “no incision” technique, there is no scar on the exposed lower lid, and healing is typically very quick. Anyone with “bags” or puffy lower lids may be a candidate for this procedure.
SoCal Eye also provides Southern California with cosmetic solutions that include Asian Eyelid Surgery. This procedure is designed to create a more pronounced upper eyelid. With minimal recovery time and no visible scars, the result is exceptional.
