Eyelid surgery also referred to as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at improving the look of your upper and lower eyelids. During the procedure, Dr. Kerendian tightens the loose or sagging skin around your upper eyelids, removes the excess fatty deposits that make your eyes look puffy, and rejuvenates the entire eye region for a more youthful look.
The skin around your eye is naturally thinner than the skin elsewhere on your body. When your skin loses its elasticity as you age, the effects are more profound around your eyes.
Additionally, repeated facial expressions can lead to dynamic wrinkles and expression lines. As your eyelid skin droops, the sagging falls forward over the eye, creating a hooded effect that can leave you looking tired or angry.
Although typically performed for cosmetic purposes, eyelid surgery may also have functional benefits if your droopy eyelids impair your vision.
Dr. Kerendian is an experienced cosmetic surgeon who determines if you’re a good candidate for eyelid surgery during your consultation. He may recommend the procedure if you:
If Dr. Kerendian determines you’re a good candidate for eyelid surgery, he reviews the details of your surgical options so you can make the most informed decision about how to proceed.
Eyelid surgery may not eliminate all crow’s feet or facial wrinkles, and Dr. Kerendian may suggest combining your eyelid surgery with other cosmetic procedures, such as an eyebrow lift, to fully rejuvenate your appearance. This procedure lifts your hooded upper eyelids, reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles along your forehead, and smooths out frown lines that form in between your eyebrows.
Your eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure performed using intravenous sedation to help you relax. Dr. Kerendian reviews the specifics of the procedure during your consultation, so you know what to expect.
After your procedure, you’re sent to the recovery room until the effects of your sedative wear off. You’re then sent home with a friend or family member.
You may experience some swelling and bruising after your eyelid surgery, but these side effects usually subside within 10-14 days. After you've healed from your eyelid surgery, you will look rejuvenated, well-rested, and more youthful.
