Eyes are often said to be the windows of the soul, but they are also frequently the first part of your face to show signs of aging. The upper eyelids can develop a crepe-y appearance and may sag or look hooded. Dr. Kerendian, Los Angeles upper eyelid surgery expert, can use several procedures to create a more youthful appearance and improve the look and function of your eyelids.
Dr. Kerendian, expert in upper eyelid surgery in Los Angeles, will first need to determine your candidacy for the procedure. You may be a candidate for eyelid surgery if you:
• Are healthy
• Have no chronic conditions that could delay or interfere with healing
• Do not smoke
• Have specific goals and realistic expectations
• Have no serious eye conditions
Upper eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can be used for cosmetic and functional reasons. It can be used to uplift drooping eyelids that are interfering with your vision, tighten loose or sagging skin, and eliminate fatty deposits that create a puffy or swollen appearance.
