What is Blepharoplasty?
A person's eyes tend to be an appealing component of their face that deserves to be seen, but sometimes excess skin above or under the eyes can result in a tired and unflattering facial appearance. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin performs eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) to remove excess skin and lift the upper or lower eyelid, creating a refreshed appearance. Many patients choose to have eyelid surgery at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery to address sagging skin, and this procedure typically leads to improved function and appearance. Upper and lower eyelid surgery helps to create a fresh, youthful appearance and can give you natural yet noticeable improvements. If you're interested in rejuvenating your eyes with eyelid lift surgery, contact us to schedule a consultation at our office in Brea or Beverly Hills, CA.

Ideal Candidates for Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is a facial cosmetic enhancement that is popular among both men and women. During your private consultation, treatment alternatives will be discussed with Dr. Corbin based on your conditions that need to be addressed. Generally, ideal candidates have excess drooping skin and folds above their eyes, or bulging skin just under the bottom eyelid. These conditions can cause vision impairment that can get in the way of everyday activities. For a rejuvenated facial appearance, blepharoplasty may be the right procedure for you. If you have hanging skin that folds over on your upper eyelid or bulges and puffiness under your eyes, blepharoplasty may help fix this to provide you with a softer appearance.
Eyelid Surgery Technique
Depending on the type and complex nature of the eyelid surgery, some form of anesthesia will be used. Eyelid surgery may be done on the upper eyelid alone, on the bottom eyelid, or a combination of both treatments.
Upper eyelid surgery helps to decrease folds of skin that impair vision to produce a more flattering look. An incision is usually made along the lash line or crease to remove loose skin and fatty tissue.
Lower eyelid surgery is performed to reduce puffy and bulging skin under the lower eyelid. The incision is carefully made below the lash line to surgically remove fatty tissue, and the skin is delicately lifted to allow for a smoother look. Sometimes, a nonsurgical laser treatment may be applied to help with discoloration, while injectable fillers can be used for additional smoothness and softening if desired.
What to Expect After Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty can last up to two hours based on whether one or both eyes are treated. After this outpatient surgery, you should expect about a week to recover and rest at home. Cold compresses can assist in reducing swelling, bruising, and discomfort. The results from eyelid surgery may last years, but even though they are lasting, the aging process does not stop. To complement your surgical outcomes, other nonsurgical cosmetic treatments at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery such as injections, fillers, and lasers can be added to create a glowing appearance.
If you're having a hard time seeing due to folds of skin on your upper eyelids or are frustrated by bulging bags underneath your eyes, then blepharoplasty at Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery may be right for you. This surgery can help you look refreshed and youthful while offering a beautiful solution to your vision impairment concerns. We invite you to get in touch with our office in Brea or Beverly Hills, CA to schedule a consultation with Dr. Corbin.
