Irvine eyelid surgery is an excellent way to improve the look of the face without a major surgery. However, it may be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as a brow lift or full facelift for even more dramatically youthful results. Eyelid surgery can turn back the hands of time by improving the contours of the eyelids and reducing sagging and puffiness in both the upper and lower lids.
Those in Irvine who want both their upper and lower eyelids corrected will undergo a short procedure. In less than two hours, the surgeon will make an incision in the upper eyelid crease and beneath the lower eyelid to remove excess fat and skin. He will then suture the sites closed. Patients will be given a chance to recover before being sent home.
Our skilled double-board certified surgeon, Dr. Tavoussi, performs our Irvine eyelid surgeries. Dr. Tavoussi has a reputation around the country for being an innovative cosmetic surgeon who can maintain natural looks for people of all ethnicities. In fact, he has lectured several times to fellow surgeons and has published his techniques in research journals.
Eyelid surgery is generally considered a safe procedure. However, as with any surgical procedure, there are some risks of which patients should be aware. Of course, the incisions will leave initial scars, which may not fade for six months or more. There may also be some temporary bruising or bleeding around the incisions. Other risks include dry eyes, problems with closing the eyes, temporary blurred vision and eye muscle injury. Dr. Tavoussi will thoroughly go over these and other risks prior to the surgery.
Irvine eyelid surgery can improve the look of one’s face by removing excessive skin and tissue from the eyelids. This can improve peripheral vision by widening the line of sight to how it once was. Our goal at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique is to satisfy our patients completely by using the latest techniques and instruments while explaining each step along the way.
