Top 10 Reasons You Need Blepharoplasty Surgery in Los Angeles  

Top 10 Blepharoplasty Benefits

There are many blepharoplasty benefits, both functional and cosmetic. Our facial enhancement and plastic reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Aynehchi, is double board-certified in both otolaryngology (head and neck surgery), and specializes in performing blepharoplasty surgery in Los Angeles.

  1. Reduced Eye Bags
    One of the many blepharoplasty benefits is the removal of excess fat pockets that give the appearance of under eye bags, which are often misinterpreted to be caused by allergies, fatigue, etc. This isn’t always the case; however, under eye bags are typically caused by prolapsed lower eyelid fat. 

    To improve the under eye bags, blepharoplasty is performed to remove, reposition and sculpt orbital fat. Some are concerned that by removing the under eye bags there may appear to be excess skin under the eyes. However, excess skin is often removed at the same time of the procedure.

    Through blepharoplasty surgery, the skin that once accommodated the orbital fat pockets is tightened after surgery naturally and the  under eye bags are removed without any excess skin. The incision is a minimally invasive approach, leaving the patient with no visible scarring, as well as a a quick recovery.

  2. Expanded Line of Sight for Improved Vision
    In severe cases, there can be excess skin in the upper eyelid that drapes over the eyelashes, making peripheral vision difficult. This sagging can either be due to genetics, aging or even from sun exposure. Sagging upper eyelids are very concerning since they can make it difficult to see and create other health concerns. 

    Aside from sagging skin, if you notice you tip your head to see properly, this may be a sign that upper eyelid blepharoplasty is needed to correct vision. If you have excess upper eyelid skin and experience difficulty seeing, you may need to consider an upper eyelid blepharoplasty.

  3. Enhanced Eye Shape for a Refreshed Appearance
    Upper eyelid blepharoplasty and lower eyelid blepharoplasty can benefit eyelid rejuvenation by removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids and surrounding areas, and also reveal a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance and enhanced eye shape. 

    To improve the appearance of aging lower eyelids, blepharoplasty procedures are sometimes combined with face lifting techniques, which include fat grafting, dermal fillers and more. In combination, blepharoplasty and these face lifting techniques prove to improve facial resilience and enhanced eye shape.

    The removal of excess skin and fat pockets in your upper and lower eyelids are done in a minimally invasive manner to allow for a speedy recovery and instant refreshed appearance.

  4. Reduced Skin Irritation from Excess Folds Rubbing Together
    Excess skin in the upper eyelids can result in a heavy feeling and often can cause irritation while blinking due to excess skin rubbing together. A blepharoplasty surgery can help improve this irritation and discomfort, and also help those who experience issues from their eye makeup smearing.
  5. Youthful & Rested Appearance
    Undergoing blepharoplasty surgery can help rejuvenate the appearance, and also provide an alert and rested appearance unlike no other. 

    During an upper eyelid consultation, a plastic surgeon will evaluate the position of your eyebrow in concordance with your eye. A droopy eyebrow accentuates age and you may be recommended to get a brow lift or forehead lift to account for this.

  6. Removal of Dark Under Eye Circles
    A blepharoplasty can also help boost your self-confidence as well as your self- esteem by restoring a more youthful and well-rested appearance. Removing excess fat from under the eyes along with fat repositioning can help eliminate dark circles and soften your overall appearance.
  7. Improvement in Lower Eyelid Hollowing
    During a blepharoplasty some excess fat can be repositioned to help improve the volume loss below the eyelid. Volume loss below the eyelid often occurs when orbital fat begins to protrude forward due to a weakening of the orbital septum. Additionally, volume loss below the eyelid is also in response to a loss of fat and volume in the cheek. The result of this is a deflating of the cheek which ultimately begins to descend away from the lower eyelid. The end result is a very large abrupt junction between the lower eyelid and cheek which causes the tired, aged look and lower eyelid hollowing. 

    With blepharoplasty, patients will see an improvement in lower eyelid hollowing and a reversal of the tired, aged look that results from lower eyelid hollowing. In some cases Fat grafting may need to be incorporated in addition to fat repositioning in order to address excess volume loss.

  8. Muscle Straining No Longer Causes Forehead Discomfort
    Blepharoplasty is not only used for cosmetic purposes, but for functional benefits as well. A functional eyelift is also useful for reducing muscle straining and improving forehead discomfort. Removing excess skin can help give relief to people who feel as if their eyelids are heavy due to the skin weighing down on the eyelids and eyelashes. 

    Due to muscle straining, forehead wrinkles typically become overactive, which can cause headaches. In addition to removing excess skin, blepharoplasty improves muscle strains caused by overuse of the forehead.

  9. Fewer Fine Lines On Outer Corners & Lower Eyelids
    A blepharoplasty can help diminish the number of fine lines seen around the outer corners and lower eyelids. The appearance of fine lines can be reduced by lifting the lid and removing excess skin around the eyes.
  10. Natural Appearance
    Our blepharoplasty surgery specialists use advanced techniques that are minimally invasive, lead to quicker recovery time and help patients rejuvenate their appearance.
