Open Up Your Eyes This Year With Eyelid Surgery

You might have been born with drooping eyelids, or you could have developed them as you got older. Aging and sun damage can cause your skin to lose elasticity, which makes the sagging worse. If your eyelids are starting to hamper your vision or your self-confidence, a blepharoplasty can correct them. 

At Desired Beauty — with offices in the Beverly Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles and in Bakersfield, California — board-certified cosmetic surgeon Farzin Kerendian, DO, FACOS, FAACS, can perform eyelid surgery to improve the look of your upper and lower eyelids. 

Understanding eyelid surgery 

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a procedure that removes excess tissue from around the eyes. It’s considered a type of cosmetic surgery, but it has practical applications as well. 

Fat deposits and sagging skin can become cumbersome, making your eyelids heavy and blocking your vision. This not only gives you a tired, drooping appearance, but it can also limit your ability to see. 

An experienced surgeon can carefully remove these fat deposits and excess skin, in effect opening up your eyes. The procedure also reduces wrinkles, giving your eyes a more alert, youthful appearance. By tightening the skin around the eyes, you can remove years of aging caused by squinting and sun damage. 

Who is a good candidate for eyelid surgery?

Dr. Kerendian carefully reviews your medical history and expectations during an initial consultation. A good candidate for blepharoplasty is well-researched and realistic as well as healthy enough to recover from surgery safely. Every eyelid surgery is tailored specifically to each patient, so think carefully about what you want your results to look like. 

If you’re seeking eyelid surgery for cosmetic reasons, it’s important to be aware that a blepharoplasty doesn’t completely remove crow’s feet and other wrinkles. If you’re looking for something more effective, talk to your surgeon about adding a brow lift or Botox® to your treatment. 

What to expect with eyelid surgery

You’re sedated before the procedure, and Dr. Kerendian reviews your goals one last time before you go under. He makes incisions in either the upper eyelid, the lower eyelid, or both. using the natural creases of the skin around your eye to minimize scarring. He then removes excess fat and tissue.

After surgery, you spend some time in the recovery room until you’re cleared to go home. Make sure to arrange for a friend or family member to drive you, and be prepared to take some time off. 

While blepharoplasty is a relatively minor procedure, it is still a surgery, so it requires some downtime. It only takes about 10-14 days to recover from eyelid surgery, but the impressive results are long-lasting.
