Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Looking for Eyelid Surgery in Beverly Hills? Choosing a qualified cosmetic surgeon for your eyelid surgery can be a daunting task. With so many seemingly reputable surgeons from whom to choose, how do you know which one will best meet your needs?

The most important thing is to find someone with whom you can connect on a very personal level, who takes the time to listen to your needs and offer the solutions that will work for you. A face to face consultation is the best way to begin.

What to Ask for on the first visit

For your initial consultation, be prepared to discuss your options, treatment suggestions, recovery times and other important details. Some questions you may want to ask include:

  • Is there a non-surgical solution to my issue?
  • What are the newest treatment alternatives for eyelid surgery?
  • Am I a good candidate for this treatment?
  • What kind of side effects and recovery issues might occur?

Choosing your Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon comes down to feeling comfortable, not only on a personal level, but also with regards to his or her credentials as well. Be sure the cosmetic surgeon you choose is board-certified by a reputable board for this specialty. Ask for referrals from friends or colleagues and of course, trust your own instincts. If you find the surgeon to be professional and considerate while taking the time to thoroughly explain every procedure, odds are you will have a good relationship throughout the entire process.

Be sure to schedule a consultation well in advance of your procedure. Tell your plastic surgeon of any medical problems you may have, as well as any special concerns or requests. If you are planning your procedure to coincide with a special event in your life (for example, a wedding or other important occasion), schedule your surgery far enough in advance to allow adequate time for healing and recovery. Talk to your surgeon about the best time frame for this. Prior to surgery, it is always advisable to get your eyes checked by your ophthalmologist for underlying visual or globe pressure problems that you may not have noticed. Typically, your eyes will be moderately swollen for 2-3 days. After that, you will have trace swelling for 3-6 weeks before your eyes are back to normal.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that addresses visual field obstructions and the aesthetic appearance of the eye. Depending on your specific condition, blepharoplasty can be performed on your upper eyelid, lower eyelid or both.

The procedure involves removing excess skin and adding or removing fat from the eyelids. When the upper eyelid is addressed, a thin incision is made in your natural eyelid crease. The placement of this incision is vital as it allows any resulting scar to be virtually invisible.

When the lower eyelid is addressed, incisions can be made directly below the lash line or on the inside of the eyelid.

Recovery

The recovery time for blepharoplasty is relatively short but after surgery bruising and swelling will be noticeable, this will start to dissipate quickly. Using a cold compress for 48 hours after surgery can greatly reduce the bruising and swelling and well as a light activity such as walking.

Bandages are usually placed over the sites of incision and can be removed within a couple days. Most people may return to normal activities after 7 to 10 days following the procedure. By 2 weeks the bruising and swelling should be completely gone.
