Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty at the West Hollywood, CA, plastic surgery practice of Roger Tsai, MD, can eliminate drooping lids and puffy under eye bags. Over time, the skin and underlying support structure in eyelids can become weak, creating a tired and more aged look. Dr. Tsai utilizes specialized surgical techniques to not only remove excess tissue, but to also refine the surrounding orbital contour for eyes that have a more youthful appearance.

Benefits of Eyelid Lift Surgery

Eyelid lift surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, offers a range of aesthetic and functional benefits for patients. Some of the key improvements you can expect include:

  • Reduced Puffiness: By removing excess fat and tissue, eyelid lift surgery significantly diminishes puffiness and bags under the eyes, resulting in a more refreshed look.
  • Smoother Eyelids: The procedure tightens and smooths the skin around the eyelids, eliminating sagging and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
  • More Youthful Appearance: Eyelid surgery can help restore a youthful and alert appearance by lifting droopy eyelids and brightening the eyes, making you look more awake and rejuvenated.
  • Improved Vision: In cases where sagging upper eyelids impair vision, blepharoplasty can remove the obstructive tissue, enhancing your field of vision and overall eye function.

Ideal Candidates for Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid lift surgery can benefit individuals with sagging skin around the eyes and puffy bags caused by excess fat deposits. Ideal candidates include non-smokers who are in good general health, without serious eye conditions or medical issues that could affect healing. While it can significantly enhance one’s appearance, it is important for patients to have realistic expectations. A consultation is the best way to determine your individual compatibility and assess your individual results potential.

Upper and Lower Eyelid Procedures

Dr. Tsai conducts eyelid procedures while patients are fully comfortable under general anesthesia in the privacy and comfort of the accredited surgical center adjacent to our clinic. Whether the procedure involves the upper or lower eyelids, incisions are strategically placed within the eyelid creases, making them virtually invisible after healing.

Excess skin and muscle are removed, and if necessary, the fat pads are excised to eliminate under eye bags. Fine sutures that provide optimal healing are used to close the incisions. The surgery time for upper and lower eyelid surgery is approximately twenty to thirty minutes for each.

Recovery and Results

Downtime following eyelid surgery is short, except for strenuous exercise, most patients can resume their regular activities after a few days. Your first checkup appointment will be the following day in our clinic. To minimize swelling and bruising, we recommend sleeping at an elevated angle for the first 24 to 48 hours post-surgery.

Applying ice packs intermittently as instructed for the first 24 hours will minimize discomfort as well as bruising and swelling. Although many patients can manage post-surgical discomfort with over-the-counter pain relievers, prescription pain medication is made available as well. The results are immediate but will become refined as swelling and bruising improves.

Eyelid Surgery Consultation

During your consultation Dr. Tsai will review your medical history and assess your eyelid skin quality and structure and discuss your aesthetic concerns. If you are a candidate for the procedure the doctor will create a customized surgical plan outlining the specifics of your surgery and review it with you in detail. We are committed to ensuring that you are well-informed and confident about what to expect before, during and after your surgery.

The Cost of Eyelid Procedures

Your eyelid surgery is customized to meet your specific needs and aesthetic goals, so the price varies. Since Dr. Tsai performs procedures at a surgical center, operating room and other facility fees related to the procedure are typically less as compared to a hospital, and we offer the convenience of participating in several financing programs. The procedure plan created at your consultation will include specific price information that is reviewed with you.
