Eyelid Lift

Blepharoplasty, commonly referred to as eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift, allows an individual to remove bags from the lower eyelids and excess skin from the upper eyelids. It frequently is performed for cosmetic reasons but also enables people to eliminate sagging upper eyelids that otherwise can hinder their vision.

For blepharoplasty in Los Angeles, Dr. Babak Azizzadeh offers a superior choice. Dr. Azizzadeh is a Harvard-trained facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has helped many CEOs, celebrities and international dignitaries. He boasts unprecedented facial plastic surgery expertise and continues to help patients accomplish their blepharoplasty goals.

What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that is designed to enhance the appearance of the eyelids. It can be completed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both.

In addition, blepharoplasty allows an individual to treat many problems, including:

  • Bags that form under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids
  • Fine wrinkles and excess skin around the lower eyelids
  • Excess fat deposits in the eyelids
  • Loose or sagging skin that can impair an individual's vision

Several types of eyelid surgery are available, including:

  • Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty: Involves the removal of excess skin, muscle folds and fatty bags that are located in the corner of the eye.
  • Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty: Ensures an individual can eliminate puffiness of the lower eyelids that occurs due to an accumulation of fluid within the skin.
  • Revision Blepharoplasty: Corrects the results of a previous eyelid surgery and can deliver both cosmetic and functional benefits.

Dr. Azizzadeh understands the ins and outs of blepharoplasty. He will collaborate with a patient, learn about his or her blepharoplasty needs and ensure this individual receives comprehensive support throughout an eyelid surgery.

Is a Non-Surgical Eyelid Procedure Available?

A non-surgical eyelid lift is available that addresses volume loss in and around the eyes that otherwise may cause a person to appear older than his or her actual age.

During a non-surgical eyelid lift, injectables are used to minimize hollowness of the lower eyes and laxity of the upper eyelids. The most common injectables utilized as part of the procedure include:

  • Restylane: Offers an injectable dermal filler that consists of hyaluronic acid.
  • Juvederm: Provides a smooth gel that can be injected into the skin quickly and easily.
  • Fat Grafting: Delivers an ideal option for individuals who are dealing with significant eyelid hollowness and sagging.

Temple rejuvenation also is available to help give a person's eyes a more youthful appearance. It involves the use of Sculptra, a collagen stimulator, to fill in the hollowness of the temple region and lift the brow. As a result, temple rejuvenation may help a person slow down the aging process.

Dr. Azizzadeh remains a leading provider of non-surgical blepharoplasty in Los Angeles. During an initial consultation, he will outline all of the blepharoplasty treatment options that are available.

What Should You Expect During Blepharoplasty Recovery?

The blepharoplasty recovery period usually requires about 10 days. However, it may take several months for post-surgery scars and swelling to dissipate.

After a blepharoplasty, an individual may have small stitches around the eyes, and this person's vision could remain blurry for a few days. An individual may have his or her eyes wrapped in a bandage following surgery as well.

In the first few days after treatment, an individual may require a cool compress for the eyes. Furthermore, an individual should not drive for several days after surgery.
