EYE LIFT / BLEPHAROPLASTY
Blepharoplasty is a surgery for the eyelids which almost instantly restores a more youthful appearance.
If you have a tired, under eye puffy bags or droopy look, Blepharoplasty can be your answer!
By removing fat and excess tissue from the upper and or lower eyelids you will see a total difference. For patients of Asian descent, this procedure can add an upper eyelid crease where there may have not been one before. Blepharoplasty can also be performed in conjunction with other facial rejuvenation procedures.
Dr. Carmina will make incisions that follow the natural lines of your upper eyelids and slightly below the lower eyelashes. Blepharoplasty is normally performed under local anesthesia and sedation and takes one to three hours depending on your individual needs and desires.
