Finding the right facial plastic surgery procedure for your specific aesthetic goals is the best approach when you start considering your facial rejuvenation options. A treatment that works well for someone else may not be the best fit for you, so it’s important to find out about the many different ways you can combat signs of aging.
At the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, Dr. Azizzadeh customizes each of his facial rejuvenation treatments to address the unique concerns of an individual patient. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, may be an appropriate treatment on its own, or it may complement another surgery, such as a facelift. Here are seven ways blepharoplasty helps you achieve youthful-looking eyes.
1. Droopy Skin Removal
Although each blepharoplasty is designed for each patient’s facial features, most cases require skin removal. The muscle is then contoured to create an appropriate crease. Fat is rarely removed during upper blepharoplasty, but it can be repositioned as needed to improve aesthetics.
2. Minor Incisions
During surgery, incisions are made following natural lines and creases. If necessary, the incisions will extend into the fine squint lines, or crow’s feet, at the outer edges of the eyes. Extremely fine stitches should be used and removed within three to four days. Once healed, the hairline scars will fade, leaving a very inconspicuous incision line that becomes virtually unnoticeable after a short time.
3. Facial Harmony
Although you may initially want to have one type of plastic surgery, such as a facelift or rhinoplasty, a combination of procedures may work best for you. When you visit the CENTER in Beverly Hills, Dr. Azizzadeh offers comprehensive consultations that inform you about all of your surgical and non-surgical options. The results of blepharoplasty, or any other facial rejuvenation treatment, should be natural and balanced.
4. Delicate Attention to Detail
Eyelid surgery is always customized because the eyes are such a delicate and unique part of each individual. If eyelid skin is excessive, it may obstruct vision and lead to a peripheral field defect. In such cases, particularly in men with heavy eyebrows that push eyelid skin down, a forehead or brow lift is performed in conjunction with an upper blepharoplasty.
5. Eliminate Bags and Puffiness
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty helps patients get rid of the excess fatty deposits under their eyes that cause puffiness. Without the excess fat, patients have firmer skin under their eyes.
6. A Well-Rested Appearance
In order to achieve a fully rejuvenated appearance, lower eyelid blepharoplasty repositions or redistributes the fat pockets without external incisions. The procedure needs to avoid the muscle that surrounds the eye at all costs in order to reduce the risk of post-op rounding. When appropriate, the use of a deka fractional laser tightens the lower-lid skin and completes the rejuvenated look.
7. Volume Preservation
As the blepharoplasty procedure is tailored to a patient’s specific features, it is crucial that volume is preserved to avoid making the eyes look depleted like a skeleton. Such a dramatic reduction actually makes you look order, rather than younger.
