Eyelid Plastic Surgery
Your eyes are the primary features of your face, giving you sight and contributing heavily to your facial aesthetics and expressions. Your eyes can convey happiness, sadness and anger. They also reveal when you feel tired or begin to age. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid plastic surgery, can be used to change the shape of the eye or to lift the lower or upper eyelids. Dr. John Anastasatos at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery offers advanced options for eyelid plastic surgery at our clinic in Beverly Hills.
Blepharoplasty removes fat, usually along with excess skin and muscle, from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes. These are features that make you look older and more tired than you feel and could even interfere with your vision. However, having a blepharoplasty won’t remove crow’s feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under your eyes or lift sagging eyebrows. There are other procedures that can address these issues.
Blepharoplasty can be done alone or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures, such as a facelift or browlift. An eyelid lift can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence. The results can give you a more energetic and youthful look, especially for those with droopy upper eyelids or puffy bags below the eyes.
Types of Eyelid Plastic Surgeries
Eyelid lifts, or traditional blepharoplasty are only one group of eyelid plastic surgeries. Other options can address those dark circles, wrinkles or the shape of the eyelid. Some of the eyelid plastic surgeries we offer at Los Angeles Plastic Surgery include:
The best candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who are physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in their expectations. Most are 35 or older, but if droopy, baggy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have eyelid surgery at a younger age. There are many men and women in their twenties who look older than they are due to droopy eyelids or puffy bags that are caused by genetics.
