This procedure is to correct the sagging or drooping of the eyelids and the removal of excess fat, skin.

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to lift droopy eyelids and remove excess skin around the eyes, resulting in eyes that look fresh, well-rested, and alert.

Orange County Eyelid Surgery experts here in European Surgery center makes sure that droopy tired eyes are spruced up. Sometimes Orange County cosmetic surgery patients use liposuction in conjunction with eyelid surgery and remove fatty tissues from other parts of the face.

Who is a good candicate for eyelid surgery?

People that may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery might have excess skin obscuring the natural fold of the upper eyelids, loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids and possibly impairing vision, a puffy appearance to the upper eyelids that make the eyes look tired, excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelids, bags and dark circles under the eyes that are often with a depression along the bony border of the lower eyelids, or droopiness of the lower eyelids that show the white below the iris. Eyelid surgery can normally fix these types of problems, but sometimes an eyelid surgery may be needed in combination with another treatment.

Upper eyelid surgery

When performing upper eyelid surgery, an incision is hidden within the natural fold of the upper eyelid and extends slightly beyond the outside corner into the laugh lines or other existing creases. Excess skin and fatty tissue are removed through this incision. The incision should heal well because it follows the natural contour of the upper eyelid.

Lower eyelid surgery

This is performed by making an incision, which is also hidden, but below the lower lashes. The excess skin, muscle, and fat are removed, or fat may be redistributed to eliminate any puffiness or bulges. If muscle laxity is an existing problem, this will be performed also. The incision will heal well in lower eyelid surgery also because the natural creases camouflage it.

Result

The result of eyelid surgery creates a more rested and refreshed look. Several weeks will be needed to see the final results of the surgery and it will take months for the incisions to fade. Eyelid surgery lasts a long time but can be affected by your lifestyle factors and heredity. Removal of fat from your eyelids is permanent and the results long-lasting. Natural aging may cause the skin to sag and additional improvements may be an option at a later point.
