While cosmetic surgery may seem like a huge step to take, eyelid surgery is a great choice for those who want a more youthful look without a major surgery. A Costa Mesa eyelid surgery can decrease puffiness and sagging around both the upper and lower eyelids while making the eyelids more pronounced. The OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in beautiful Newport Beach, California, can help patients through the entire process, from consultation to post-operative follow-up.
OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique serves the entire Orange County area, including the city of Costa Mesa, and offers a variety of cosmetic surgery procedures with our talented double-board certified surgeon, Dr. Tavoussi. Dr. Tavoussi starts with a comprehensive consultation for all patients, during which he will examine and take photographs of the eyelids, show before-and-after pictures of past eyelid surgeries and answer patient questions. He can also use our state-of-the-art digital computer technology to simulate post-operative results on the patient’s own photograph.
The procedure is typically performed with only local anesthetic and medication for relaxation through an IV. An incision will be made in the fold of the upper eyelid to remove excess fat and skin. Next, the surgeon will make an incision in the crease below the lower eyelid or inside the lower lid for the same purpose. The procedure should take two hours or less.
To decrease financial worries, we offer payment plans to qualifying Costa Mesa individuals. In addition, in the case of eyelid surgery performed for medical reasons, insurance companies cover the cost. For example, patients who have lost some of their periphery vision due to sagging eyelids may have the eyelid surgery covered. Having Costa Mesa Eyelid Surgery done for this reason can dramatically improve vision while driving.
