    Blepharoplasty (aka eyelid lift) is a wonderful procedure to rejuvenate the eyes, giving a more awake, happier appearance.For the upper eyelids, the procedure is a predominantly skin-reduction surgery. This procedure removes excess skin and can also reduce some of the fat. However, only a small amount of fat is removed to prevent a “hollow” look. Upper eyelids can be done under local anesthesia in the office or in the operating room.

    For lower eyelids, the procedure is a predominantly fat-reduction or fat-redistribution surgery. Only a small amount of skin is removed or tightened to prevent a pulling down of the eyelid. The fat can be either taken out, or moved slightly to fill in a hollow or tear trough under the eye. This is done under anesthesia in an operating room.The procedures have little if any pain afterwards.

    The next day, many patients are out and about with “celebrity sunglasses” on!

    The downsides of surgery including a 10 day recovery with some bruising and swelling. The scars should be nearly invisible. Anesthesia for lowers and/or uppers is usually tolerated really well but some can get nauseous. As well, any procedure can have complications and not all people are candidates for the procedures.

    I wish you success with your eyes.

    Eyelid correction plastic surgery is known as Blepharoplasty in medical parlance. Eyelid surgery basically involves correcting droopy eyelids. With age, our eyelids stretch and the muscles supporting them become weak. This may result in excess fat gathering around eyelids resulting in droopy or saggy upper eyelids and bags under lower eyelids. The eyes are the most important aesthetic component of the face - for this reason eyelid surgery is among the most efficient ways to obtain significant aesthetic improvement to the face with relatively light surgery. If you want to do this I recommend to search plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills for example here is popular clinic https://www.jasonchampagnemd.com/blepharoplasty
