Aliso Viejo and area residents benefit from blepharoplasty

During human interaction, a triangular pattern on the face is noticed. This pattern begins at the eyes and ends at the mouth. As such, first impressions are based partly on the appearance of the eyes, or eyelids. Loose skin and pockets of excess fat on the eyelids can make you appear older than your biological age, and far older than you feel. Correcting sagging, excess skin in our Aliso Viejo area practice is simple with a blepharoplasty procedure.

Also called eyelift surgery, blepharoplasty improves facial aesthetics by addressing issues such as:

  • Excess fat deposits beneath the skin, causing festoons, or bags on the upper or lower eyelids.
  • Loose, sagging skin that masks the natural contours of eyes.
  • Extreme drooping in the lower lid, revealing more of the whites of the eyes.

How Blepharoplasty Works

At the Orange County Eye Institute, Dr. Salib listens to your aesthetics concerns and desires, and provides details on suitable treatments. Each blepharoplasty procedure is tailored to the patient’s unique concerns and physical makeup.

Blepharoplasty is a simple procedure that is performed in our office with the use of local anesthetic. Precise incisions are made in least noticeable areas. For instance, the upper eyelids may be revised through incisions in the eye’s natural crease. Treatment of the lower lids may begin with incisions made at the lower lash line.

The Post-surgical Period

[img1]Once the eyelids have been perfected, incisions may be closed with either skin adhesive or sutures that will naturally absorb over time. Ointment may also be applied to the eyelids, which produces a bit of blurriness for a short time. It is common for swelling and bruising to develop in the first few days following this minimally invasive procedure. Within a few weeks, all side effects of blepharoplasty should fade, revealing revitalized eyes and a more vibrant appearance.

We can rejuvenate our appearance in several ways. Issues with drooping eyelids, fatty deposits, and loose skin do not have to age you any longer. Dr. Salib has the skills and precise techniques to correct these cosmetic issues in our comfortable, state-of-the-art office.
