Santa Ana Eyelid Surgery can be used for cosmetic reasons as well as for medical reasons in some individuals. As people age, the skin on both their upper and lower eyelids begins to show several signs of age, such as droopiness, lack of elasticity and puffiness. Santa Ana eyelid surgery can eliminate many of these concerns and may even extend people’s range of vision by removing tissue that is hanging over the eye. When used for a documented medical reason, Santa Ana Eyelid Surgery is often covered by health insurance.
This Santa Ana cosmetic procedure does not last very long, especially if only the upper eyelids are done rather than both the upper and lower eyelids. When both uppers and lowers are corrected, the procedure typically takes two hours. It may be performed with only oral sedation and local anesthetic, or more extensive cases may require general anesthesia. Dr. Tavoussi performs all of his Santa Ana Eyelid Surgeries at the Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center, which serves the entire area of Orange County. The surgery center is a safe and secure environment with cutting-edge technology to ensure that each of our patients get the quality of care that he or she deserves.
Experienced anesthesiologists with local hospital privileges as well as highly trained registered nurses will be on site to help before, during and after the procedure. They will answer any Santa Ana patient questions and take care of pain or other discomforts that patients may have. During the procedure, Dr. Tavoussi will make several incisions that will allow him to remove unneeded eyelid tissues and smooth the skin of the eyelids. He will most likely use sutures to close the incisions. Patients will be discharged home shortly after the procedure where they will want to rest for at least two or three days. Within a day or two of the procedure, Dr. Tavoussi will have Santa Ana patients come back to the Newport Beach office of OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique for a follow-up appointment during which he will inspect the incisions and the eyelids and find out how well the patient is recovering.
