Newport Beach eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, helps to improve the appearance of eyelids that droop. It can also remove bags from under the eyes and decrease puffiness that often accumulates around the eyes. While you may think that this procedure is only used on the upper eyelids, it can actually be used on the smaller but no less important lower eyelids as well.
You may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery in Newport Beach if you are generally healthy and are a non-smoker. You should also not have any major eye issues that have been diagnosed. Your eyelids may appear droopy, or there may be more eyelid fat than you like. However, if your eyelids are drooping due to sagging forehead skin, you may benefit more from a forehead lift or a brow lift. These cosmetic surgeries can sometimes be done along with an eyelid surgery as well.
During the surgery, the surgeon will remove extra skin, fat and other tissues from the area to make the area smoother, firmer and more youthful-looking. Once this is done, the incisions are closed with small sutures that must eventually be removed or with skin glue that does not have to be removed.
You will need to plan to rest and recover following surgery. Initially, the treated areas will appear swollen and bruised. In a few weeks when the swelling subsides, you will be able to see your newly rejuvenated appearance. You should plan to take a week or two off work.
