Considering Blepharoplasty? You’re Not Alone

Our eyes serve as the focal point of beauty, conveying thoughts and emotions with a single glance. Over time, the delicate skin around the eyes may exhibit signs of aging, stress, and fatigue. In fact, many of our patients find that their eyes are the first part of their face to start showing obvious signs of aging. You may have noticed:

  • Wrinkles
  • Drooping upper lids
  • Excess skin
  • Under-eye bags 
  • And more

As these factors become more pronounced, they can negatively impact the overall radiance of the face. These complaints are common, but luckily, the cure can be simple in the capable hands of your Changes plastic surgeon.

An Eye-Opening Look at Your Options

While many individuals seeking Upper Eyelid Surgery are 35 or older, age is not the sole factor determining if you are a candidate. Genetic predispositions can lead to these issues emerging at a younger age.

For patients seeking to have eyelid surgery in San Diego, we can customize this procedure to their desires: altering the overall shape of their eyes or provide a more natural, rejuvenating look.

A Symphony of Precision: The Upper Blepharoplasty Procedure

Duration and Customization

  • Typically lasting one to two hours, the Blepharoplasty procedure's duration varies based on individual needs. During this transformative process, your surgeon makes incisions strategically in the natural lid creases of the upper lids. 
  • These incisions may extend into the crow’s feet or laugh lines at the outer corners of the eyes, showcasing the meticulous approach taken by our skilled surgeons.

Sculpting Beauty

  • Working through these incisions, your surgeon delicately removes excess fat, trims sagging skin and muscle, and artfully enhances the aesthetics of the eyes. 
  • The incisions are then carefully closed with fine sutures, ensuring minimal scarring for a seamlessly rejuvenated appearance.

Combining Procedures for an Artful Result

At Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, we believe in the art of combination. In careful consultation with your surgeon, patients choose to undergo an upper and lower blepharoplasty and/or to enhance their results further by combining chemical peels, BOTOX®, or a brow lift with blepharoplasty in San Diego. This synergistic approach eliminates crow’s feet and sagging eyebrows, yielding the most dramatic and comprehensive results—a rested, alert, and pleasantly rejuvenated look.

Your Path to Radiance: Recovery and Beyond

Post-Procedure Care: On your path to radiance, post-procedure care is paramount. Following Upper Eyelid Surgery, you'll be advised to keep your head elevated for several days and use cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising. Our surgeons may recommend eye drops to alleviate dryness, burning, or itching.

Navigating Recovery: While the initial days may involve excessive tearing, sensitivity to light, and temporary changes in eyesight, you should be able to resume reading or watching television within two or three days. Contact lenses may be avoided for about two weeks, and most individuals find themselves ready to re-enter public life and work within ten days to two weeks.

In the skilled hands of our expert plastic surgeons at Changes Plastic Surgery & Spa, Upper Eyelid Surgery transcends traditional expectations, revealing a timeless beauty that mirrors the essence of your inner radiance. Schedule your consultation today and embark on a personalized journey to rediscover the captivating allure of your gaze.
