About Eyelid Lift
The eyes are a unique aspect of the face that deserve to be visible; however, an excess of skin above or under the eyes can render an unflattering look. Board-certified plastic surgeon and hand surgeon Dr. Omar Ahmed performs blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery) to lift and tighten the lower or upper eyelid to produce a softer, rejuvenated look. Countless men and women have eyelid surgery at Omar Ahmed, M.D. to reduce puffy bulges, leading to improved functionality and facial appearance. Blepharoplasty, whether lower or upper, creates a softer, younger appearance and can give you natural yet noticeable improvements. If you'd like to learn more about refreshing your eyes with eyelid lift surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Ahmed in Pasadena, CA.

Ideal Candidates for BLEPHAROPLASTY
Upper or lower blepharoplasty is a facial cosmetic enhancement that is sought out by both women and men. During your consultation, Dr. Ahmed will offer you treatment options based on your areas of concern. Most often, ideal candidates suffer from excess, sagging skin and folds above their eyes, or puffy skin just under the bottom eyelid. These irregularities can cause functional problems that can get in the way of everyday activities. If you have loose skin that droops on the upper eyelid, or bags and circles under the eyes, blepharoplasty can treat this to give you a younger appearance.
Eyelid Surgery Technique
Depending on the nature of the eyelid surgery, you will receive some form of anesthesia. This treatment may be done on the top eyelid by itself, on the bottom portion, or a combination of both eyelids.
Upper blepharoplasty assists in reducing the hanging of skin that droops over the eye to create a more flattering look. The incision point is often placed along the lash line or crease to remove loose skin and fatty tissue.
Lower bleph is performed to reduce puffy and bulging skin under the lower eyelid. In most cases, an incision is made along the lash line to surgically remove fatty tissue, and the skin is subtly lifted to allow for a softer, flatter look. In some cases, a nonsurgical laser treatment can be performed to help with discoloration while fillers can be used for added volume and smoothness if needed.
What to Expect with eyelid Lift
Eyelid surgery can last up to two hours, depending on whether both eyes or one is treated. After the procedure, you should allow about a week to rest. Cold compresses can assist in reducing discomfort, swelling, and bruising. The outcomes from eyelid surgery may last a decade or longer, but while they are lasting, aging does not stop. To complement your surgical outcomes, facial rejuvenation treatments at Omar Ahmed, M.D., such as fillers, can be paired to create a fresh appearance.
