What is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at rejuvenating the appearance of the eyelids. It addresses issues such as drooping eyelids, excess skin, puffiness, and wrinkles around the eyes. During eyelid surgery, excess skin and fat are removed, and underlying muscles may be tightened to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. This procedure can help improve the symmetry and contour of the eyelids, resulting in a refreshed and rejuvenated look.

Benefits Of Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery aims to provide a younger, more alert appearance to the eyes for an improved facial appearance overall. Dr. Yaghoubian can perform other procedures along with eyelid surgery, such as a brow lift or face lift, to address all of a patient’s concerns. It is important to work with a skilled and empathetic doctor like Dr. Yaghoubian, as eyelid surgery is a highly individualized cosmetic operation. Blepharoplasty is available for upper and lower lids, which may have differing cosmetic issues. The procedure involves removing excess skin, tissue, and fat around the eyes and eyelids to reduce signs of aging, such as sagging and wrinkles. Loose skin around the eyes can also impair vision, requiring eyelid surgery to correct. Along with removing excess skin and fat, the procedure repositions muscles, tissue, and fat to achieve an awake and youthful look. Final results are permanent in many cases, but certain patients may require additional surgery to maintain the results later in life.

What Problems Can Eyelid Surgery Correct?

Eyelid surgery can fix various cosmetic and functional eye problems that commonly result from aging. For instance, signs of aging around the eyelids could negatively affect facial expressions, since eyes play an essential role in conveying emotion. Common reasons to undergo a blepharoplasty procedure include:
  • Undereye bags
  • Excess skin and wrinkles around the lower eyelids
  • Fat deposits that create a puffy appearance
  • Sagging lower eyelids
  • Loose skin that creates wrinkles around upper eyelids and impairs vision
Recovery from a blepharoplasty typically takes ten to 14 days for swelling and bruising to subside. In an initial consultation, Dr. Yaghoubian will fully explain what to expect before, during, and after the eyelid surgery procedure. She ensures that patients are informed and prepared at every step of the process for the best possible experience.
