Will Blepharoplasty Change the Appearance of My Face?

The shape of your eyes and eyelids affects your overall appearance more than you might realize. If you feel like your face looks weary, heavy, or aged, cosmetic surgery around your eyes could be the best way to address your concerns.

World-renowned oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Raymond Douglas, MD, PhD provides cosmetic eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty, from his Long Beach and Beverly Hills, California offices. Talk to Dr. Douglas about your appearance-related complaints, and find out if a blepharoplasty could be the best way to subtly transform the whole appearance of your face.

The benefits of blepharoplasty

Dr. Douglas and his care team perform blepharoplasties on patients’ upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both lower and upper eyelids at the same time. The typical recovery period after this procedure is about ten days, although some patients return to work in just a week.

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty effectively eliminates sagging and drooping. Dr. Douglas uses small incisions, naturally concealed in your eyelid crease, to reposition fat and take up excess skin and tissue. Dr. Douglas follows the natural lines of your bone structure, so you won’t look totally different, just refreshed and with more visible eyes.

In lower eyelid blepharoplasty, Dr. Douglas and his team work through small incisions below your eyes. This procedure reduces bagginess underneath your eyes, giving you a refreshed, rejuvenated look. Dr. Douglas can reposition subdermal fat deposits in the area under your eyes, filling in hollows and at the same time, reducing unwanted under-eye puffiness.

Cosmetic eyelid surgery and your appearance

Getting a blepharoplasty definitely changes the appearance of your face. Dr. Douglas can help you understand the effect that your proposed treatment will have on how you look.

If you feel frustrated with your heavy under-eye bags, sagging upper eyelids, or excess skin around your eyes, a blepharoplasty might be right for you. You’d be amazed at what a difference improving the area around your eyes makes for your overall appearance. Your eyes may appear bigger, brighter, or more awake after your upper, lower, or double blepharoplasty.

Many people find that blepharoplasty works well to erase visible signs of aging and increase youthful radiance. Discuss your anti-aging goals with Dr. Douglas, and find out more about what a blepharoplasty could do for you.
