Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

The Benefits Of Eyelid Surgery

It’s easy to assume that anti-aging and beauty are the only reasons for cosmetic eye surgery, but the reasons go far beyond aesthetics. Eyelid surgery in San Diego is most often an outpatient procedure—which can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelid depending on your goals. Recovery time is typically between 2 to 7 days, and varies depending on the scope of work completed.

The key is to work with a reputable plastic surgeon, whose quality and experience are easy to verify. Don’t rush in to any procedure without checking references, and viewing the surgeons before and after portfolio. While the budget is always a consideration, surgery is never a time to compromise quality for budget.

Below are some of the most common reasons to consider cosmetic eye surgery.

If you opt for San Diego eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) for vision, you will, of course, enjoy the cosmetic benefits as well.

Eyelid Surgery For Antiaging

If you are searching for a way to minimize crow’s feet, wrinkles, bags, and dark circles—this is the procedure for you. Depending on the severity of your cosmetic concerns, you may combine a couple of procedures for maximum results. This might include a brow lift, chemical peel, or other rejuvenation procedure. The end result will be brighter and more youthful appearance.

Ease Migraines

Patients who suffer from migraines experience debilitating pain, and are often open to trying a variety of procedures to improve their quality of life. Strategic incisions in the upper eyelid may deactivate trigger nerves that increase the frequency and severity of migraines. Schedule a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon to discuss if this procedure is an option for you.

Asian Blepharoplasty

A double eyelid surgery can be performed to add an extra fold to the upper eyelid for those who naturally lack an upper eyelid crease. This fold can help to brighten eyes, decrease puffiness, brighten eyes—and can even make it easier to apply eyeliner and eye shadow. This procedure is often sought out by patients of Asian descent, but may be suitable for anyone who lacks an upper crease.

Wake Up Your Eyes

Sometimes patients seek out blepharoplasty in San Diego, because they are tired of people asking if they are tired. If makeup and beauty creams aren’t able to brighten your naturally tired eyes, surgery may be able to help. By removing the excess skin on the upper or lower lid, you will look rested and refreshed.
