What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty (called an eye lift or eyelid surgery) is a surgical procedure that restores a bright, well-rested appearance by surgically treating sagging eyelids. This surgery is usually performed for cosmetic reasons, or to improve eyesight in patients who have drooping upper eyelids that obstruct vision.

Who is a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

With time, changes in skin quality and resilience are inevitable. The loss of skin elasticity, coupled with the pull of gravity leads to changes in appearance to the upper and lower eyelids. The upper eyelids can droop, creating a hooded appearance, or heavier eyelids can be an inherited natural trait.

Under-eye bags or drooping lower lids can be surgically corrected. A candidate for blepharoplasty in Torrance is experiencing one or more of the following issues:

  • You have saggy upper eyelid skin.
  • You appear tired, even on your best days.
  • You are experiencing obstructed peripheral vision due to excess eyelid skin.
  • Puffy heavy-looking upper eyelids.
  • Dark circles or fatty zones beneath your eyes.

Lower Eyelid Lift

Upper eyelid surgery requires the removal of excess skin, and for some patients, tightening the underlying muscle structure. Lower eyelid surgery can involve removing fat deposits or treating saggy lower eyelids. When the surgery is performed at Marcus Medical, precision surgical techniques make all the difference in the outcome. We are committed to achieving surgical results that look natural, not visibly the result of surgery – a refreshed, elegant, more youthful look.

Under-eye Hollows

Dr. Marcus may employ an innovative technique to address hollows beneath the eyes. With precision injections of dermal fillers or natural fat transfer, this aesthetic concern can be resolved. In some cases, an incision is placed within or just below the lower lid eyelashes. When healed, the incision is virtually invisible. Excess fat, skin, and muscle are addressed to achieve the changes you envision, appearing refreshed and natural.
