Eyelid surgery from your Beverly Hills surgeon achieves four distinct benefits
Eyelid surgery has become increasingly popular in recent years as men and women have realized the speed at which the eyes can be rejuvenated. Blepharoplasty, the procedure through which eyelids are modified, may be performed on one or more areas, including both the upper and lower lids. In the office of Dr. Dass, cosmetic eyelid surgery is customized to the needs of the individual patient.
The level of care provided in our Beverly Hills practice is sought after by residents of Los Angeles as well as other Southern California cities. Whether performed strictly for aesthetic reasons, or for functional reasons, patients may notice four distinct benefits after healing from their procedure.
No more bags
One of the primary conditions that create an appearance of age and fatigue is puffiness under the eyes. For individuals with bags that remain long after waking up in the morning, a great deal of dissatisfaction may occur. The lower blepharoplasty procedure is conducted in a precise manner through which excess fatty tissue and skin below the eyes are removed. In some instances, the reduction in size of bags beneath the eyes also solves the problem of dark circles.
The primary goal of eyelid surgery is to diminish the appearance of bags under the eyes or “hooding” on the upper eyelid. When each of these areas is lifted through the removal of excess skin, a natural result is the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. Not only can an eyelid lift diminish the appearance of lines on the eyelids and below the eye but also at the corners. These results can be further enhanced with non-surgical rejuvenating treatments such as Botox or a peel.
Improved visual fields
In some cases, blepharoplasty is performed for functional reasons. Patients whose upper eyelids are exceedingly droopy may develop visual concerns as well as those that are cosmetic in nature. Lifting the upper eyelid eliminates obstruction to vision.
One of the primary reasons that patients decide to undergo surgical eyelid treatment is to refresh their appearance. There is no doubt that adequately opened eyes are vibrant and full of life. We cannot hide our eyes, so when they look tired we may not feel our best. Removing heavy tissue and skin from above or below the eye takes years off the face. As a result, confidence and wellbeing may improve as well.
