Eyelid Surgery Inland Empire
Many patients come in for eyelid surgery in the Inland Empire to achieve a rejuvenated look. 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.
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. Blepharoplasty can correct these issues.
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.

Eyelid surgery, also known as an eye lift or eyelid lift, 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.
The surgical procedure begins with administration of anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. Tiny incisions are then made in the natural contours around the eyes; these incisions which should leave no visible post-surgical marks.
Dr. Wali will usually work on the upper eyelids first to remove any fatty tissue and tighten loose skin. This aspect, known as upper blepharoplasty or upper eyelid surgery, involves an incision in the natural crease at the top of the upper eyelid.
Lower eyelids are completed next to eliminate puffiness and reduce dark circles. Lower eyelid surgery, also called upper blepharoplasty, can be done in one of two ways. The incision can either be made right below the lash line (the transcutaenous incision) or within the eyelid (the transconjunctival incision). The transconjunctival incision is better for situations where excess fat is the primary issue.
Newer techniques may also be performed, including Botox injections to firm fine lines and wrinkles. These injections relax contracted muscles in the region, allowing the skin to lie flat.
Recovery and Healing
The recovery process after eyelid surgery varies from patient to patient and will be discussed during your consultation. Follow the directions of Dr. Wali diligently in order to ensure proper healing.
Temporary minor bruising and swelling will be present in the area. Dryness is common, and so prescribed ointment must be applied as directed. It will also be important to wear proper sunscreen and to wear sunglasses to protect from wind and pollutants. Time off from work will be necessary to rest and recover.
Eyelid Surgery Cost
The details of your blepharoplasty procedure determine its overall price. Factors that impact cost include total surgery time, techniques utilized, and type of anesthesia administered.
