Eyelid Surgery Beverly Hills Los Angeles – Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty
Eyelid surgery or “blepharoplasty” treats drooping or fullness of the upper or lower eyelids. As men and women age, their upper eyelids tend to sag and their lower eyelids tend to become puffy. These developments can lead to a tired and older appearance. Blepharoplasty uses small incisions that are hidden within natural skin folds. Various amounts of excess skin, fat and muscle are removed. Scars are usually almost imperceptible. Sometimes the lower eyelids can be treated using incisions made on the inside of the lower eyelid, with no external scars, in a procedure called transconjunctival blepharoplasty. At Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills – Los Angeles Ca, we tailor our eyelid surgery to the needs of each individual patient. Though these procedures usually only last one to two hours, the improvements in appearance are often dramatic.
