Blepharoplasty

Rejuvenate the Upper Face with Upper or Lower Eyelid Surgery in Los Angeles

An eyelid lift is the surgical removal of excess skin from either the upper or lower eyelids—or both—resulting in a more alert, rested, and youthful appearance. This procedure is known technically as a blepharoplasty. In Los Angeles at Cassileth Plastic Surgery, Dr. Catherine Chang tailors the procedure to the needs of each patient, whether the problem is excess upper eyelid skin or serious "bags" beneath the eyes.

Although it affects only a tiny area of the face, an upper or lower eyelid lift can make a huge difference in how you look. Removing just the right amount of skin—and combining this with removing, repositioning, and even adding fat—will help the eyes to look refreshed and young. Because blepharoplasty surgery can create such dramatic results, it is important to work only with a plastic surgeon who has experience with the specific procedure and who has a thorough knowledge and understanding of facial anatomy. Dr. Chang is known for natural-looking blepharoplasty results. She is highly trained and has worked with a wide range of patients seeking specific solutions for their eyelid problems, both cosmetic and functional. Dr. Chang is an Ivy-league trained craniomaxillofacial aesthetic and reconstructive surgeon and former Harvard clinical instructor who specializes in face surgery.

What Can a Blepharoplasty Do?

Smooth Out Aging Skin

Wrinkles around the eyes are a tell-tale sign of getting older. Blepharoplasty removes excess skin around the eyes, revealing the eyelashes and contouring the upper lid, and removes bags in the lower lid. This gives the entire face a more youthful appearance.

Rejuvenate the Eye Area

Do you have tired-looking eyes, dark circles, or bags? A blepharoplasty rejuvenates the upper and lower eyelids for a well-rested appearance that can make patients look years younger.

Enhance Your Eye Shape

A blepharoplasty is ideal for anyone looking to enhance their overall eye shape and correct hooded and sagging skin, puffy eyes, and more to create an ideal double eyelid shape. Our plastic surgeons use advanced techniques to preserve distinct ethnic aspects, such as with Asian eyelid surgery, to ensure a more alert and rejuvenated appearance without altering the fundamental characteristics that contribute to your unique look and identity.

What Does a Blepharoplasty Entail?

Upper Eyelid Surgery

The surgeons at Cassileth Plastic Surgery perform upper eyelid blepharoplasty through an incision hidden in the natural fold of the upper eyelid, so that any resulting scar is camouflaged and practically invisible. Excess fat and lax skin are accessible for removal through this incision. The final result looks natural and youthful.

Some blepharoplasty patients may have such severe hooding of their upper eyelids that the drooping tissue obscures their vision. Diagnosis of impaired vision is determined by a "visual field test" performed by an ophthalmologist. Some insurance plans provide coverage for an upper eyelid lift when the surgery is performed to correct impaired vision. Before your blepharoplasty procedure, our billing team will verify your insurance benefits.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

With normal aging, the skin below the eyes can become overly wrinkled or baggy. To correct this look, your surgeon will redistribute the fat from the “eye bag” area to just below the lower lid, putting it back where it belongs and filling the valley below the eye. This eyelid surgery creates a smoother, more youthful contour and a well-rested, revitalized look. The blepharoplasty incision is hidden inside the lower eyelid, so there are no visible scars. If excess skin is also present, an incision can be created at the lash line to remove the skin and further tighten the lower lid.

Options Beyond Blepharoplasty in Los Angeles

Age-related skin laxity and other changes rarely impact only one feature. Facial surgery options beyond eyelid surgery at Cassileth Plastic Surgery include brow lift for elevating and smoothing out the forehead, facelift to re-contour the lower portions of the face and neck, and facial fat grafting to restore lost volume.
