Eyelid Surgery Inland Empire
Your eyes are the most engaging feature of your face. Your eyes are revealing of your attention, emotions, and health. Puffiness, dark circles or droopy eyelids give the appearance of exhaustion and aging. Dropping eyelids can add years to one’s appearance and for some the excess skin can even obstruct the field of vision, which can be dangerous. Eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) is a corrective procedure that can reduce dark circles or “bags” under the eyes, remove excess wrinkles, and provide a more youthful appearance to the eyes. Patients seeking treatment for excess eyelid skin often also request that Dr. Wali perform combination anti-aging facial procedures like facelifts, chemical peels and Botox in combination with eyelid surgery for overall beauty enhancement.
Reasons for considering Eyelid Surgery
- Dark circles or bags under the eyes.
- Excessive skin or wrinkles surrounding the eyelids.
- A tired appearance or puffiness due to inherited factors.
- Puffy bags and dark circles
The surgical procedure includes tiny incisions made in the natural contours around the eyes which should leave no visible scarring. Dr. Wali will usually work on the upper eyelids first to remove any fatty tissue and tighten loose skin. Lower eyelids are completed next to eliminate puffiness and reduce dark circles. In some instances, laser technology may be used to smooth lower eyelid areas. Newer techniques may include Botox injections to firm fine lines and wrinkles. The surgery generally takes about one to three hours and is performed at our own Inland Empire Facility. If additional cosmetic procedures are being performed, the eyelid surgery could last longer.
