Aliso Viejo Eyelid Surgery can help patients who feel that their eyes are making them look older than they truly are. An eyelid surgery can correct sagging, drooping lids and even puffiness beneath the eyes. While it cannot correct crow’s feet or some fine lines and wrinkles, this surgery may be combined with another facial cosmetic surgery, such as a brow lift or facelift for even more impressive results. Patients who have an Aliso Viejo Eyelid Surgery often find that they have a wider field of vision, a smoother upper eyelid and a renewed look of youthfulness.
Only qualified surgeons who have training and expertise in this field should perform eyelid surgeries. Dr. Tavoussi from the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach, California, has been performing this and many other cosmetic procedures for over twenty years in the Orange County area. An Aliso Viejo eyelid surgery requires precision and finesse to be accomplished correctly with a minimum of scarring or other complications.
Aliso Viejo patients can expect to have some swelling and possibly even bleeding around the incision sites. This can lead to pain, which can often be controlled using only over-the-counter pain medication. In some cases, Dr. Tavoussi will prescribe a pain medication for greater pain control. Patients will be instructed to keep their head elevated for at least the first 24 hours and to use cold compresses around the affected areas to decrease swelling. Patients should also treat the incisions with great care as they get dressed or wash their faces. They will not be able wear contacts for a while and will most likely need to use eye drops initially to decrease the effects of dry eye.
