Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) – Orange County | Newport Beach
View Our SpecialsEyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) corrects these problems and also removes puffiness and bags under the eyes that make you look worn and tired. This procedure cannot alter dark circles, fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nor can it change sagging eyebrows. Though blepharoplasty is often performed as a single procedure, your surgeon may also recommend a brow lift, facelift, or laser skin resurfacing to achieve the best results.
Upper and lower eyelid surgery is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed at Newport Plastic & Reconstructive surgery. This information is put together as to help our patients understand the different aspects of this highly technical procedure.
Successful plastic surgery is a result of good rapport between patient and surgeon. Trust, based on realistic expectations and exacting medical expertise, develops in the consulting stages before surgery.
Your surgeon can answer specific questions about your specific needs.
Droopy eyelids can make you look older and can also impair vision. In many cases it is the first sign of facial aging. A tired, staring or stressed look are one of the main complaints voiced by our patients.
Is Eyelid Surgery Right for Me?
As with all plastic surgery procedures, good health and realistic expectations are prerequisites. Blepharoplasty removes the excess fat, muscle, and skin from both upper and lower lids. The results can be a refreshed appearance, with a younger, firmer eye area.
People with severe circulatory, ophthalmologic, or other serious medical conditions must rely on the diagnostic skills of their own personal specialists to determine whether blepharoplasty is an option to consider. Consultation with a plastic surgeon can help you decide whether any additional, complementary surgery would increase the success of the surgery.
What to Expect During Your Consultation
During the pre-surgical consultation, you will be examined or asked to answer queries concerning vision, tear production, use of lenses, and your desires for surgery. Your surgeon will explain what you can expect from blepharoplasty and take a complete medical history. Factors to be weighed include age, skin type, ethnic background, and degree of vision obstruction. Furthermore, you can expect an open and honest exchange between you and your surgeon, which will establish the basis for a successful outcome.
After a mutual decision is made by both you and your surgeon, the technique indicated for your individual surgery will be discussed. The type of anesthesia, the surgical facility, any supportive surgery, and the risks and costs inherent in the procedure will be outlined.
