EYELID SURGERY - BLEPHAROPLASTY FaceCenterLA - Plastic Surgery, Facial Plastic Surgery Heredity and aging greatly affect the appearance of your eyes. Drooping skin in the upper eyelids may make you appear sad or angry, while puffiness or bags in the lower eyelids may make you look worn out. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) corrects the excess skin and fat in both the upper and lower eyelids, resulting in a more youthful and energetic appearance.
The surgical approach for blepharoplasty is tailored for each individual. Generally, for the upper eyelid, the incision is hidden in the normal eyelid fold. In the lower lid, the incision can be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a face lift, facial implants, tissue augmentation, or resurfacing. Excess skin and fat are removed from the affected eye areas to create a full, open look in the eyes.
Eyelid surgery is usually performed as an outpatient surgery and patients should expect to stay one night. Patients undergoing eyelid surgery should expect a minimum of of one week after blepharoplasty and some patients may require additional healing time. Dr. Schendel uses the latest techniques and innovations in plastic surgery to provide you with a natural, youthful appearance that patient's love. The eyelids will be lifted revealing a youthful, almond shape, and a gentle smooth contour around the eyes.
