Blepharoplasty: Ask Dr. Brian Evans
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a common procedure designed to
remove fat and excess skin around the eyes. If you feel your eyes always look tired
and puffy, eyelid surgery may be your best option.
Blepharoplasty - Look Smarter and More Beautiful with Eye
As you age, you tend to lose the youthful appearance and have more chances to
develop puffy eyes, eye bags or drooping skin around the eyelids. Such changes can
affect the facial appearance and make you look dull or tired. By undergoing
blepharoplasty surgery, you can regain your confidence and get back your vibrant
youthful appearance. This cosmetic surgery, also known as eyelid surgery, is used to
remove the fat deposits and tighten the loose skin around the upper or lower eyelids.
"How do I undergo the surgery and what results can I expect from blepharoplasty,"
are among the common questions asked by those who plan for this surgery.
Normally, blepharoplasty surgery is performed as a single procedure but doctors and
surgeons may also recommend it along with other cosmetic procedures like brow
lifts, facelifts, or skin resurfacing. This cosmetic eye lid surgery can correct the
imperfections of the eyelids to give you a fresh look but it cannot eliminate dark
circles or completely remove the wrinkles around your eyes.
Know in Detail about Blepharoplasty Procedure
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure performed by a licensed medical professional.
Make sure you choose a blepharoplasty plastic surgeon who is experienced in
providing this surgery. An expert surgeon will initially examine your eyelids and
check to see how much fat is to be removed. During the surgical procedure, local
anaesthesia is administered and the surgeon makes an incision on the eyelid to
remove the accumulated fat deposits. In the case of drooping eyelids, the sagging
muscles are carefully trimmed and the small incisions are closed with stitches.
Types of Surgeries Performed
Blepharoplasty plastic surgery can be performed to correct both upper and lower
eyelids. The lower eyelid surgery focuses on removing excess skin, muscle, or fat. It
also helps to reposition the corner of the eye or the entire eyelid. In the case of upper
eyelid surgery, corrugator hyperactivity or glabellar frown lines can be improved.
Moreover, it removes the puffiness around the eyelid. Sometimes when upper eyelid
marginally interferes with the vision, surgeons may recommend both upper and
lower blepharoplasty procedure at the same time.
After the surgery, it is common to experience temporary numbness of the eyelid skin,
swelling and occasional bruising. The stitches will remain for about a week and scars
may take a few months to fade away. You can return to your routine activities or
However, it is always essential to get an expert's answer for the query "what results
can I expect from blepharoplasty".
At our surgical center Dr. Brian Evans Plastic Surgery in West Hills Hosptial &
Medical center, we perform eyelid surgery on both the upper and lower eyelids.
Eyelid surgery targeting the upper lids can remove excess skin that may be impeding
vision, and eliminate the "droopy" appearance caused by overhanging skin. Eyelid
surgery on the lower lids can reduce bags around the eyes and tighten loose skin that
contributes to a tired, worn out look. After a thorough exam at our practice, Dr. Brian
Evans MD can help you decide whether eyelid surgery is appropriate for your lower
lids, upper lids, or both.
Based on the condition of your skin and your aesthetic goals, Dr. Brian Evans may
recommend that your eyelid surgery be combined with a facelift or a brow lift for
complete facial rejuvenation.
