Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery, known medically as blepharoplasty, is designed to improve the appearance of the eyes and can involve either the lower lids, the upper lids, or both. Based in Glendale, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sepideh Saber is a widely respected physician with an aesthetic sense that both her patients and colleagues agree produces consistently attractive and natural-looking outcomes.

Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

The eyes are one of the most important facial features and framing them in a more flattering fashion can make a big difference. Most of the eyelid surgeries Dr. Saber performs are to rejuvenate the eyes by removing excessive and loose skin, dealing with drooping eyelids, or minimizing dark circles, wrinkles, and puffiness under the eyes. While the procedure is typically performed for strictly cosmetic reasons, it is sometimes also needed to improve the field of vision. Studies have shown that patients who get it may experience improved confidence and better quality of life.

Is Eyelid Surgery Right for You?

Eyelid surgery is safe and effective but no surgery is for all patients. Candidates for blepharoplasty should be in good health and maintain a realistic expectation regarding the effects of the procedure. Dr. Saber will look closely at the patient’s medical history to assure that a procedure will be both safe and effective.

Q&A

Consultation and Preparation?

Before you choose to go forward with a procedure, Dr. Saber and her team will discuss your goals with you in addition to reviewing your medical history. She will also discuss your expectations for the procedure and explain the most likely outcomes in your case as well as the possible risks. At that point, you will be able to make an informed decision about whether blepharoplasty is right for you.

Before the procedure, patients are provided with instructions about what to do in the days leading up to surgery. Often, these instructions may ask you to avoid certain types of OTC medications and refrain from smoking, among other matters.

What Happens on the Day of the Procedure?

Step 1: Anesthesia

On the day of the surgery, Dr. Saber and her medical team will begin the one to two-hour-long procedure with anesthesia. In most cases, it will be a combination of local anesthesia and sedation, though in some cases general anesthesia may be required. In either case, a board-certified anesthesiologist will be present at all times to ensure the patient’s safety.

 

Step 2: Incision

Dr. Saber will strategically place incisions that are hidden along natural creases to extract excess skin and/or fat and to achieve a desired rejuvenating result.

 

Step 3: Incision Closure

Incisions are closed with tiny stitches, usually in place for a few days to a week.

What is the Recovery Process Like?

Following eyelid surgery, patients commonly experience some swelling, bruising, dry eyes, and slight irritation. Any discomfort can be managed with cold compresses, ointment, drops, and medication. Most patients will be able to return to their ordinary routine within 10 to 14 days following their surgery. Dr. Saber and her team provide patients with instructions regarding what to expect in the aftermath of the procedure and what steps are needed to minimize discomfort and ensure the best and safest outcomes.

It may take some time for the full benefits of the procedure to appear. Typically, it may be about four to six weeks before all of the improvements become completely visible.
