Eyelid Surgery in Irvine and Ladera Ranch

Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) enhances the look of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, and subtly rejuvenates your overall facial look. Successful eyelid surgery will leave you looking well-rested, younger, and more approachable – in the most natural way.

What can eyelid surgery do for my look?

As we age, our eyes become hidden under the heavy brow skin, which weighs on the upper eyelids, creating folds of skin, creases, or leaving heavy bags beneath the eyes. In some cases, the loose folds of eyelid skin can even impair vision. Cosmetic eyelid surgery removes the excess skin and fat of the eyelids and restores the natural contour of the eye, creating a revitalized, youthful appearance.

Am I a candidate for eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery is usually performed on adult men and women who have healthy facial tissue and muscles and have realistic goals for improvement. Conditions that are treatable with eyelid surgery include:

  • Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids
  • Loose or hanging skin that folds and creases, disturbing the natural contour of the upper eyelid or impairing vision
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles along the lower eyelid
  • Bags or puffiness below the eyes
  • Sagging lower eyelids

What is the recovery time after eyelid surgery?

You should not experience much pain following surgery, but it is normal to experience some bruising and swelling. Most people can resume normal activities within a few days, begin to wear makeup after one week, and can resume social activities in two weeks.

What does eyelid surgery entail?

Blepharoplasty is typically performed under “twilight” anesthesia, often in conjunction with other facial procedures. While the upper or lower eyelids alone can be treated, the best results are often achieved with a “quad” blepharoplasty, which addresses the signs of aging on both the upper and lower eyelids. 

The incisions are inconspicuously placed in the natural creases and lines, where they are well concealed. Some patients may be candidates for a transconjunctival approach, which allows the surgeon to access the fat without a skin incision at all. In certain cases, an eyelid tightening procedure may be necessary if the lower eyelids are loose or sagging. The procedure can vary in length, based on the extent of the correction needed, but generally takes between one to two hours to complete.
