Eyelid Surgery/Blepharoplasty Newport Beach
The eyes often become droopy, saggy, or puffy as we age, creating a tired or sad appearance. Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty helps to rejuvenate the area around the eye by removing excess folds of skin and fat and by tightening underlying supportive structures. At Pacific Plastic Surgery Institute, PC, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joyce Chen performs eyelid surgery for patients in Newport Beach.
Options for Eyelid Surgery
Upper eyelid surgery, also known as an eye lift or upper blepharoplasty, removes excess skin, fat, and sometimes muscle from the upper eyelid. This surgery is often done under local anesthesia in an office setting. Upper eyelid surgery can also be combined with a forehead lift or lower eyelid surgery to rejuvenate further the eyes and peri-orbital area.
Lower eyelid surgery, also known as eye bag surgery or lower blepharoplasty, removes excess skin, muscle, and fat under the eye, and can correct the tear trough deformity below the fat that can give the appearance of puffy bags under the eyes. This surgery is performed under general anesthesia with surgical incisions hidden along the lash line.
Eyelid Surgery Recovery
Swelling and bruising will occur after eyelid surgery. These issues will subside over the next few days. Any pain or discomfort can be managed with medication. Most patients need around 10 days of recovery before they feel comfortable returning to work. Swelling can take around three months to fully subside.
Eyelid Surgery Cost
The cost of eyelid surgery in Newport Beach will depend on the type of blepharoplasty performed along with other factors.
