Blepharoplasty is a Greek name to mean eye surgery. According to the 2014 statistics, more than 80 percent of women conducted this process in the United States to help correct visible signs of aging around the eyes and refresh their appearance. At Coastal Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, we offer blepharoplasty procedures to both men and women who qualify. Contact us today to schedule a consultation in Los Alamitos and surrounding areas!
What is Blepharoplasty?
The main goal of this procedure is to have either the upper, lower or both eyelid areas reinvigorated. Men and women who seek this procedure are often experiencing bags under the eyes, sagging skin and moderate to severe visible signs of aging that can even inhibit peripheral vision in some cases. At Coastal Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, our experienced surgeon can correct the upper, lower, or both areas of the eye depending on your individual needs.
What Can I Expect During Blepharoplasty?
When performing Blepharoplasty, the usual modification or correction is of the lower and upper eyelids. It can also be performed on the surrounding eyebrows, the upper cheek portion, and upper nasal bridge area to achieve a balanced, natural-looking appearance that enhances your natural beauty without causing you to appear as though you have “had work done.”
During this procedure, the skin, underlying tissues, and muscle structure of the eye areas will be manipulated. Depending on your aesthetic goals, excess skin will be removed, and the structure of the muscle and tissues will be smoothed out and tightened to help create a younger-looking appearance.
Am I a Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
During your consultation with our medical team, we will assess several factors such as your health, medical history, skin condition, aesthetic goals and surgical expectations. We will also discuss your treatment options and whether blepharoplasty is right for you. For men and women who require more extensive correction, we may recommend blepharoplasty as part of a full facelift procedure. Ask us about this option during your visit.
What is the Recovery for Blepharoplasty?
The amount of downtime associated with this procedure often depends on the individual. Prior to your procedure, we will discuss how much time you may need to take off from work and normal activities, as well as any aftercare instructions that may be necessary. Taking care of your incision sites and aiding the healing process can help minimize the amount of visible scarring after your procedure, and we will monitor your results to ensure that you are satisfied with your blepharoplasty.
