Cosmetic surgery is an effective way of reducing aging signs such as wrinkles, sagging skin, fine lines, and skin folds, and is a popular choice for older people. Many facial plastic surgery procedures enhance large segments of the skin but do not touch the eyelids, which can also experience these same laxity issues. Therefore, individuals struggling with aging signs around the eyes should consider eyelid surgery in Encino.
This procedure (also called a blepharoplasty) helps reduce adverse impacts on your facial appearance and expressions, such as consistently appearing tired, angry, or worried. Further, it could minimize routine cosmetic concerns regarding the eyes, including undereye bags. AESTHETICA LA is your destination for all enhancements related to making your eyes more alert and inviting.
Since a facelift does not rejuvenate any facial area above the cheeks, many individuals seek an eyelid operation in Encino for a more complete enhancement. The frequent cosmetic concerns for eyelid surgery patients include loose, sagging skin around the eyes and eyelids that contributes to wrinkles and an aged appearance. In addition, excessively loose skin around the eyes could begin to sag and block the field of vision, resulting in vision impairments.
Additionally, the upper and lower eyelids may begin to droop with age, contributing further to vision disruptions and an aged look to the eyes. These drooping eyelids could cause or worsen dry eyes, watery eyes, and eye fatigue. Lastly, excess fat underneath the eyes could be removed during a procedure and redistributed to reduce the appearance of puffy eyes.
During an Encino blepharoplasty surgery, Dr. Yaghoubian trims away excess skin by tightening and repositioning the underlying tissues, facial muscles, and remaining skin around the eyes and eyelids. Additionally, the surgery could remove excess fat and redistribute remaining facial fat to reduce puffiness, particularly underneath the eyes. This procedure uses minor incisions to make changes, so patients will have tiny but visible scarring that fades over time.
Though patients might have mild side effects for a few weeks, returning to work and light-impact activities typically only takes between five and ten recovery days. It is vital to protect the eyes and incision sites from excessive sun exposure with sunglasses, sunscreen, and hats during this time. Patients must avoid applying excess pressure on the eyes by sleeping with the head above the chest, avoiding rubbing the eyes, and refraining from wearing contacts.
Due to the possible side effects persisting for several weeks, the enhancements are not entirely apparent immediately after surgery. Instead, final results could take four to six weeks to become noticeable once most of the swelling and bruising dissipates. Though the operation does not prevent the eyes and eyelids from aging naturally afterward, patients typically enjoy enhancements for between five and 15 years.
Developing aging signs around your eyes might not only negatively impact your appearance and self-confidence, but could disrupt your vision. Though other procedures could reduce loose facial skin, eyelid surgery in Encino is the best option for specifically resolving this concern around the eyes and eyelids. After surgery, patients feel more confident in their younger-looking appearance and have fewer adverse impacts on their facial expressions
Certain medical conditions such as chronic dry eyes, heart disease, and diabetes may prevent some individuals from undergoing eyelid surgery.
