A person’s eyes are a beautiful facial feature that deserve to be visible, but sometimes excessive skin around the eyes makes you look tired, can be unflattering, and can even impede vision.
Blepharoplasty, or an eyelid surgery, can be performed alone or in conjunction with a facelift surgery in Santa Rosa to reduce excess skin and rejuvenate the lower or upper eyelid, creating a more “alert” look.
Ideal candidates for an eyelid lift
Upper or lower blepharoplasty is a facial cosmetic enhancement that is performed on both women and men. Often, this procedure enhances different types of facelifts.
At your first visit, treatment options will be explained by Dr. Canales or Dr. Furnas based on your areas of concern that need to be corrected. Generally, ideal candidates have excess drooping skin and folds that exist on the top eyelid, or bloated skin just under the bottom eyelid. These irregularities can cause functional difficulties that can get in the way of normal, everyday activities. For a more awake look, blepharoplasty may be the appropriate surgery for you.
How is eyelid surgery performed?
Because of the complex nature of eyelid surgery, some form of anesthesia will be provided. This treatment may be done on the top eyelid by itself, under or on the bottom eyelid, or a blend of both eyelids.
Upper eyelid surgery assists in decreasing the folds of skin that impair vision to produce a more awakened and appealing look. The incision point is often placed along the lid crease to excise loose skin and fatty tissue.
Eyelid correction on the lower lid is performed to improve puffy and bulging skin beneath the lower lid. In most cases, an incision is carefully made along the lash line to surgically remove tissue and fat, and the skin is subtly lifted to allow for a softer, flatter look. Sometimes a nonsurgical laser procedure may be incorporated to help with discoloration while fillers can be used for more smoothness and softening if desired.
What to expect when you get an eyelid lift in Northern California
Blepharoplasty can take up to two hours depending on whether both eyes or one is treated. After this outpatient surgery, you should plan for about a week of recovery and rest at home. A cold compress can assist in reducing discomfort, swelling, and bruising.
