What is Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Surgery?
Blepharoplasty, otherwise known as eyelid surgery, is a procedure to get rid of excess skin and fat that causes the lower or upper eyelids to droop. This procedure results in brighter, younger eyes and can also improve vision when it has been impaired by a drooping lid. In his office, Dr. Torkian offers premier eyelid surgery services to help his patients look as young as they feel. If you are interested in what our patients call the best blepharoplasty Los Angeles has to offer, please call our office to schedule an initial consultation.
I have been going to see Dr. Torkian for six years, and he is an amazing doctor and person. After all of this time, I know that he makes recommendations based on what I want and what is best for me, not what will make him more money. His staff is friendly and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Torkian to family and friends.
Candidates for Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is a relatively simple procedure designed to eliminate excess fat and skin from the lower and upper eyelids. It is often an introductory procedure serving to provide rejuvenation on the first area that usually succumbs to the aging process.
Candidates for blepharoplasty are concerned about the tired appearance they project even when they are fully engaged and energetic. They may also have impaired peripheral vision caused by excess skin blocking the full radius view that normally would be available. This can interfere with reading, driving and other activities.
Many of Dr. Torkian’s patients are seeking the most elegant blepharoplasty Los Angeles residents could hope for and have naturally come to his plastic surgery practice. As a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, his entire career has been focused on the face, head and neck. He has performed countless eye lift procedures at his clinic often on those who make their living in front of the unforgiving public eye.
What to Expect: Lower and Upper Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery can be performed on different parts of the eye. It can be performed on the upper eyelid or the lower eyelid. Surgery for the upper and lower eyelids is usually done at the same time, if it’s determined that both procedures are necessary. Each procedure may be done alone, or in combination with other facial cosmetic procedures, such as facelift or rhinoplasty.
Upper Eyelid Lift
Dr. Torkian is highly trained and delivers high quality upper eyelid surgery. For this procedure, following anesthesia, excess skin and fat are removed from the upper eyelid, leaving a single thin incision line, which falls into the natural skin fold.
Many patients who come to our plastic surgery clinic are seeking facial enhancement and a more youthful, fresh facial appearance. Sagging, drooping eyelids are one of the first signs of aging facial skin, and the condition cannot be hidden with cosmetics – but it can be completely resolved with upper eyelid surgery.
This procedure must be performed with the highest level of skill to create a natural-looking enhancement, rather than a startled, pulled look. Dr. Torkian, as a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, has the advanced skills and delicate approach to perform this surgery correctly and produce truly beautiful results – natural, refreshed, and rejuvenated.
Lower Eyelid Lift
Lower eyelid surgery can often be done from the inside surface of the eyelid, without any incision on the skin. In this way, fat bulges may be removed or repositioned, and healing is generally faster. However, if excess skin exists on the lower eyelid, an external excision may be recommended to ensure this skin is properly and thoroughly removed, giving you the best results possible from lower eyelid surgery. As in the upper eyelid, the incision line becomes very difficult to discern with time.
Patients often inquire about "crow's feet" or other fine wrinkles or spots around the eyes. While these areas are not directly corrected with an eye lift, they can often be improved with a chemical peel or laser resurfacing at the same time as surgery, or shortly after.
The most important issue in this surgical procedure is the delicacy with which it is performed. An incorrectly performed lower eyelid surgery may leave a person looking unnatural. Dr. Torkian is an acclaimed facial plastic surgeon who is recognized for surgical excellence and his ability to create a natural look that appears youthful and fresh – and like you.
The benefits of lower eyelid blepharoplasty include:
- Tighter lower eyelid skin
- Reduces bulging eyelid fat
- A more rested, youthful, refreshed facial appearance
Blepharoplasty Recovery: The Facts
After your surgery, you will need time to rest and recover. Most patients arrange for two weeks off work. The procedure leads to bruising and swelling, and you need enough time for these side effects to diminish. While the recovery is not particularly uncomfortable, the bruising and swelling must have time to resolve. You will have full aftercare instructions to follow to help speed healing.
After Eyelid Surgery
You will need to keep your head elevated after your surgery, so have plenty of pillows or a comfortable reclining chair, with all you need at close hand. Avoid reading or watching TV for the first week, but listening to music, podcasts, or the radio can keep you entertained.
No bending, vigorous physical motions, or the risk of having the area treated bumped by a pet or child. Sequester yourself away and rest so your eyes can heal as they should.
