Blepharoplasty in Huntington Beach is a common procedure for those with sagging upper eyelids or others with bags under the eyes. The experts at Coastal Dermatology & Plastic Surgery can help you determine if this procedure might benefit you. Below is everything you need to know about the procedure.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is the Greek word for eye surgery. This type of eye surgery is not surgery of the eye itself, but the surrounding areas.
Blepharoplasty in Huntington Beach includes those procedures that repair droopy eyelids and may involve removing excess skin, muscle, and fat above or below the eye. During the aging process, muscles that support the eyelids weaken, eyelids stretch, and excess subcutaneous fat may gather above and below the eyelids, causing eyebrows to sag, the lids to droop, and bags to form under the eyes.
Who Is a Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
The surgeons who perform Blepharoplasty in Huntington Beach, along with other members of the medical team, will consult with you regarding your candidacy. A medical history will be taken, and a physical assessment of your facial structure, skin condition, and general presentation will be made. You will discuss your goals and expectations, and the surgeon will offer their expert opinion as to treatment options and whether blepharoplasty is right for you. As well, part of the consultation may include recommendations to have other facial procedures performed at the same time as the blepharoplasty.
How Is Blepharoplasty Performed?
Much of the procedure will depend on your goals, expectations, anatomy, and facial structure. Your surgeon will usually work on your upper lids first, carefully removing skin, muscle, and fat to smooth out, tone, and tighten up tissues around your eyes, eyebrows, upper cheeks, and upper nasal bridge–symmetry is achieved without leaving the lingering appearance of having surgery.
What Is the Recovery Time for Blepharoplasty?
Recovery time depends on the procedures you have had done. You will be monitored during your recovery time to make sure the healing process goes according to plan in order to help minimize the amount of visible scarring after the procedure. Above all, you’ll be monitored to ensure that you are satisfied with your blepharoplasty procedure.
