Eyelid Surgery/Blepharoplasty Newport Beach

Eyelid Surgery/BlepharoplastyThe 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.

Upper eyelid surgery 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 or lower blepharoplasty removes excess skin, muscle, and fat under the eye, and can correct the tear trough deformity below the fat. This surgery is performed under general anesthesia with surgical incisions hidden along the lash line.

Non-surgical rejuvenation around the eyes can also be done with Botox or fillers such as juvederm to soften or fill in the wrinkles and furrows around the eyes and forehead.
