eyelid surgery san francisco bay area | blepharoplasty What is Blepharoplasty?

It can be hard to feel alive and vibrant when you see those drooping eyes looking back at you from the mirror! The loose skin and fat bags under your eyes can make you look more tired and older than you feel inside. An eyelid lift could be your answer to this problem.

Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Surgery, is a surgical procedure that can correct sagging eyelids, remove excess skin from the upper eyelids, and remove fatty pouches beneath the eyes. A lower eyelid lift for eye bag removal can be accomplished without any skin incisions, which eliminates the risk of scarring and facilitates the healing process.

Eyelid Surgery Benefits

Common issues treated with blepharoplasty surgery include:

  • Loose or sagging skin that disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
  • Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

What procedures can be combined with Eyelid Surgery?

Blepharoplasty can be done alone or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift, brow lift, or laser skin resurfacing for total facial rejuvenation.

Blepharoplasty procedure

Eyelid Surgery can be performed on the Upper Eyelid or the Lower Eyelid. This procedure could be done either under local anesthesia, with sedation or general anesthesia.

The upper eyelid procedure involves an incision within the natural crease on the eyelid. This allows for removal or repositioning of fat deposits this help tighten the muscles and removal of excess skin. Lower eyelid procedure is meant to also remove or reposition the fat deposits to help tighten the muscles. This procedure involves an incision just below the lower lash line.

Dr. Armen Serebrakian understands that every patient is unique that is why the procedure process and techniques may vary vary.
