Los Angeles Eyelid Surgery is performed at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach, California. Dr. Tavoussi has a long-standing reputation for excellence and cosmetic surgery safety in the Orange County area. He has 20 years of experience doing this type of surgery as well as other facial surgeries that can be combined with an eyelid surgery, such as a facelift or brow lift. Dr. Tavoussi’s goal with this surgery is to restore the youthfulness and beauty to Los Angeles patients’ faces while keeping the eyes and face structurally accurate.
Eyelid surgery can be a pricey procedure because it is usually not covered by health insurance. Most insurance companies only cover the procedure if it is performed to restore a poor visual field due to sagging skin. Most other Los Angeles Eyelid Surgeries must be covered out-of-pocket, although our office can help patients put together payment plans that will work for them. Eyelid surgeries performed by themselves usually cost just under $3,000. Patients should also know that upper eyelid surgery may need to be repeated because the results last between five to seven years.
Because this is a Los Angeles cosmetic surgical procedure and even though it is often performed using a local anesthetic, it does come with several risks. Patients should understand that there is a risk of bleeding as well as for dry eye, numbness around the eyes and swelling. Patients may be able to control their pain using over-the-counter pain medication, such as acetaminophen, or may need a prescription painkiller from Dr. Tavoussi. They will also want to have a cold compress available for when they go home as well as several bed pillows to elevate the head.
Most patients find that they are pleased with the results of a Los Angeles Eyelid Surgery. Those who come in with realistic expectations and goals find that they feel more youthful and that they have increased confidence when out in public. Although eyelid surgery does not stop the effects of aging around the eyes, it does allow people to look younger by restoring eyelid definition, removing under-eye bags and tightening sagging skin.
