Temecula eyelid surgery lets men and women appear younger and more vibrant by physically enlarging the so-called windows to the soul. The procedure removes fat as well as excessive tissues and skin from the eyelids to create a more open shape without drooping. While it does not remove wrinkles around the eyes that can age the face, this surgery can be combined with other surgeries to create a full-face effect. Many patients like to have a facelift or forehead lift performed at the same time as a Temecula eyelid surgery.
Eyelid surgery can be performed on both upper and lower eyelids. It can improve the line of sight in some instances, in which case it may be covered by health insurance. However, in most cases, insurance will not cover Temecula eyelid surgery because it is a cosmetic procedure. Additionally, this surgery can improve puffy eyelids, bags under the eyes and sagging skin that covers the upper eyelid. Patients should be generally healthy without chronic health conditions. Patients are encouraged to stop smoking before the procedure and will find that the results of the surgery are more easily maintained by avoiding smoking post-surgery as well.
Temecula eyelid surgeries are performed under full general anesthesia. Dr. Tavoussi uses the Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center nearby for his surgeries because of the outstanding level of care and expertise offered in this accredited facility. Patients will find a safe and secure atmosphere and will be happy to experience the high level of care from numerous anesthesiologists and ACLS-certified registered nurses. Because this is not a major surgery, patients can plan to go home the same day after recovering briefly in the post-operative unit.
