The quality of the skin around your eyes influences your overall appearance. Factors like aging, smoking, or exposure to the sun can cause this skin to sag, wrinkle, and overlap. You can regain a more youthful look and handle serious cosmetic issues around your eyes by undergoing eyelid surgery with our skilled surgeon in Santa Rosa.
What Is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that can be performed on the upper and/or lower eyelids, depending on the situation. It can be performed on an outpatient basis in most cases. The effects of the surgery are long-lasting. You can improve your appearance and feel more confident about the way you look by having cosmetic issues around your eyes corrected with eyelid surgery.
How Is Eyelid Surgery Performed?
As mentioned, eyelid surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure. The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient based on the unique wants and needs of the individual, as well as the situation. A typical procedure may involve the removal of excess skin and fatty deposits and the skillful contouring of the outline of your eye. The remaining skin can also be tightened in order to achieve a younger, more refreshed appearance.
Once the procedure is finished, you will be closely monitored until you are sent home to recover. It is important that you follow our doctor’s post-surgical instructions to minimize discomfort and promote healing.
Learn More During a Consultation
Eyelid surgery is a popular procedure that can address cosmetic issues around your eyes. It can also be used for functional reasons, like in cases where the upper eyelid skin is hanging so low that it blocks vision. With this procedure, you may improve your appearance and your confidence in the way you look while also improving eyelid function.
