In some cases, it can even improve vision impaired by sagging lids. If you are looking for a Fullerton plastic surgeon who is experienced in performing blepharoplasty procedures, schedule an appointment at ADV at any one of our convenient locations in Fullerton, Brentwood or Newport Beach.

Blepharoplasty Procedure

The blepharoplasty procedure begins with an incision made along the eyelid. Excess fat and skin are then trimmed away from the eyelid. This outpatient procedure, which typically takes one to three hours, is performed under anesthesia and is considered permanent in many cases, although it will not prevent natural aging.


Eyelid Surgery Recovery

Following surgery, side effects such as dry eyes, swelling, bruising, and sensitivity to light may occur, but should fade within 10 days.

Steps of an Eyelid Surgery Procedure

At Advanced Skin Care, Dermatology, and Plastic Surgery in Fullerton, we take every necessary precaution in our state-of-the-art facility and have a 0% infection rate. Our board-certified plastic surgeons perform eyelid surgery in the following steps with beautiful, natural-looking results:

  • Anesthesia: This step typically involves general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
  • Upper Eyelid Incisions: In eyelid surgery, incision lines are placed so that the scar is well concealed within the natural structures of the eyelid. To correct the upper eyelid, an incision is made within the natural crease to allow for tightening of the muscles, removal or repositioning of fat deposits, and removal of excess skin.
  • Lower Eyelid Incisions: For lower eyelid correction, an incision is made just under the lower lash line. Excess skin is removed and fat deposits are removed or repositioned through this incision. An alternative technique is a transconjunctival incision made on the inside of the lower lid to remove or reposition excess fat. No skin is removed with this incision placement.
  • Closing: Eyelid surgery incisions are typically closed with sutures or skin glue. When sutures are used, they are removed within a week.
  • Results: Eyelid surgery results appear as swelling and bruising subside to reveal a refreshed, more alert, rejuvenated appearance and smoother, better defined eyelids and surrounding area.

Benefits of an Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery may be performed for both functional and cosmetic purposes. Benefits of this procedure include:

  • Fewer fine lines around the eyes: Most patients see significant improvement in the number of lines around the outer corners and lower lids after eyelid surgery, when both the upper and lower lids are lifted.
  • Better vision: Heavy drooping of the upper eyelids can be more than a cosmetic concern – it can also obstruct your field of vision. Removing fat deposits and extra skin that cause the upper eyelids to droop can improve your vision as well as your appearance. No more bags under the eyes: Baggy areas under the eyes can give the face a fatigued, less healthy appearance. Lower eyelid surgery can remove bags under the eyes by removing excess tissue and skin.
  • More refreshed appearance: Eyelid surgery is one of the most effective ways to make your face appear refreshed and rejuvenated. It also enhances the shape and appearance of your eyes.
