Upper eyelid surgery or upper blepharoplasty is an outpatient eye lift procedure designed to restore a younger looking and more rested appearance of the eyes. Aging or other factors can cause the eyelid tissue to become stretched and the muscles may also weaken. This can give a puffy appearance to the eyelids, which makes the patient’s face appear tired or angry.
Apart from loose skin around the upper eyelids, sometimes ptosis may also be present. This can cause droopy eyelids, and the patient may appear sleepy-eyed even when they are fully awake. An oculoplastic surgeon can identify the presence of ptosis and provide a comprehensive surgeon solution to lift the upper eyelids as well as remove underlying ptosis.
Aging, sun exposure or other factors may cause the lower eyelids to appear puffy, or make the skin appear like crepe paper. Dr. Hui provides a cosmetic eyelid surgery called lower blepharoplasty in such cases for her patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, and surrounding communities. The procedure begins with the surgeon placing an incision inside the eyelid or on the outer skin to reduce the eye bags or excess skin.
The incision is made in an inconspicuous way to hide the scarring. Lower eyelid surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. Patients typically go back to their regular routine in about one to two weeks.
The condition of ptosis or drooping eyelids may effect on or both upper eyelids. The surgeon will first ascertain the cause of ptosis and then determine the appropriate surgical treatment approach. Sometimes the patient may be suffering from excess skin of the upper eyelids along with ptosis. An experienced oculoplastic will be able to identify the presence of underlying ptosis and provide correct surgery at the same time while performing upper eyelid surgery.
Botox Injectable Treatment
Botox is one of the most popular FDA approved anti-aging treatments in the world. The treatment does not involve any surgery, and produces instant but temporary results. An ocuplastic surgeon will have a deep understanding of the eyelid anatomy and its relationship to ocular function and facial expression. This expertise can help them achieve optimal outcomes with botulinum toxin injections around the eyes. Botox can help reduce frown lines as well as crow’s feet around the eyes.
High advanced, FDA approved dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm can be used to reduce signs of aging from the face without surgery. Dr. Hui employs her extensive training and experience in oculofacial cosmetic surgery to provide safe, precise and effective treatments with dermal fillers. Outcomes with dermal fillers can last for up to a year.
