About Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty, the technical term for eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic operation that seeks to give the upper and lower eyelids a more youthful look by removal of excessive skin, fat, and/or tissue. There are many reasons why you would choose to get a blepharoplasty. This procedure can help remove signs of aging such as droopy or baggy eyes; however, it cannot correct things such as crow’s feet, sagging eyebrows, and dark circles. Some patients are concerned that blepharoplasty will remove any racial or ethnic features. While it does not erase any evidence of heritage, it can add a crease to the upper eyelid for Asian women or men.

Blepharoplasty procedures typically take one to three hours, but this depends on the extent of the surgery. For a patient who is having both upper eyelids and both lower eyelids done, the surgeon will likely work on the upper lids and then work on the lower lids.

Typically, incisions are made along your natural lines and creases so that extra fatty tissue can be removed. The surgeon will also trim any extra skin and/or tissue that is sagging. Depending on your situation, longer incisions may have to be made along your crow’s feet.

If you are a young patient with more elastic skin, you can also undergo a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, which seeks to remove only excess fat, not skin. In order to avoid visible scarring, your surgeon will place the incision inside the lower eyelid and then finely close up the incision with fine sutures.

What to Expect

For my patients considering eyelid surgery in Orange County, this procedure is one I consider a great starting point for facial rejuvenation.

More than any other facial feature, your eyes reveal the most about how you feel. When your eyes are bright and alert, you appear energized. It is truly amazing the difference patients can see even with a small amount of upper eyelid skin removal. The beauty of eyelid surgery is the relatively easy recovery.

In many cases, upper eyelid surgery can be performed in the office under local anesthesia only, without the need for postoperative pain medications at all. If performed appropriately, the results should be, as I say, a “dramatic change,” but not a “drastic change”. This procedure is often used in conjunction with a facelift or forehead lift.

Recovering from Surgery

Side effects such as bruising, swelling, double vision, dryness, and pain will often result from blepharoplasty. Your surgeon will prescribe pain medication that will help alleviate the initial soreness after the anesthesia. Application of ointment, eye drops, or bandages may also be necessary. Bruising is typically at its worst stage within the first week of recovery. Cold compresses are useful in reducing bruising, and you should always elevate your head to avoid further swelling. Each patient is different, so bruising can last as long as a month or as short as two weeks, depending on the situation. Patients may also experience other temporary side effects such as blurring, light sensitivity, or excessive tearing. Within the first stages of your recovery, your surgeon will remove the sutures after monitoring your healing progress. Any noticeable side effects will eventually go away once the stitches have been removed. However, if you are experiencing excessive pain as a result of the blepharoplasty, you should contact your surgeon right away.

Turn the Clock Back

After being chosen by Tamra Judge, one of the Real Housewives of Orange County, for a breast augmentation in Season 3, Dr. Ambe was chosen once again to perform a facelift – except this time on her mother. Tamra and her mother, Sandra Baker, ultimately chose Dr. Ambe due to his reputation as one of the best facelift surgeons in Newport Beach/Orange County and one that specializes in very natural facelift results. After her incredible results last season, Tamra knew that Dr. Ambe would give her mother the perfect “turn the clock back” look she desired.
