With simple changes to your eyelids, eye rejuvenation immediately transforms your appearance, making you look rested, younger, and more interested in life. The team at Revive Wellness Center offer their expertise in eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, to help eliminate droopy eyelids and bags under your eyes. Contact one of their offices in Torrance and Palm Springs, California, or schedule an appointment online to get a consultation and learn how they can rejuvenate your eyes.
As you age, your eyelid muscles weaken, the eyelids stretch, and fat accumulates above and below your eyelids. These changes can create the following issues, and eyelid surgery can correct them all:
When you want to improve the appearance of your eyelids, or you need to change them because the excess skin is uncomfortable, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is the solution.
Blepharoplasty may be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both at the same time. Upper eyelid surgery is performed through an incision made in the crease of the eyelid, while the incision for lower eyelid surgery goes just below the eyelashes.
In both cases, the incisions are made in areas where the scar will be concealed. Plus, your Revive Wellness Center surgeon can remove excess skin, fat, and muscle from either location.
These symptoms commonly develop following eyelid surgery:
All of these side effects should resolve in 2-3 weeks. In the meantime, your doctor at Revive Wellness Center will give you detailed care instructions; for example, you’ll need to clean your eyelids with prescription ointments, avoid straining and strenuous activities, and sleep with your head higher than your chest for a few days. It’s also important to quit smoking because it interferes with healthy healing.
Eyelid surgery does not remove dark circles, change the position of your eyebrows, or eliminate wrinkles around the eyes like crow’s feet. A different surgical procedure can be performed to create a natural-looking, permanent eyelid crease.
You can also have other procedures, such as an eyebrow lift, done at the same time as your eyelid surgery.
Top-heavy eyelids are one of the most noticeable features in an aging face. If it’s time to rejuvenate your appearance, please call Revive Wellness Center or schedule an appointment online.
