Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery

Cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a very popular and effective technique used to improve the appearance of your eyelids. Just like other areas of your body, your eyelid skin can lose elasticity as you grow older. This can cause sagging of the upper eyelids and bags under the eyes, making you look older and tired.

How Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Works

At Pendleton Eye Center we perform cosmetic eyelid surgery in Oceanside, California, as an outpatient procedure.

  • Local anesthetic is administered
  • Incisions are made in the natural creases of the upper eyelids and/or the inside lower eyelid
  • Excess fat, skin and muscle is removed
  • The incisions are closed with small stitches that dissolve naturally

Because the incisions are made in the natural creases, scarring is usually minimal. To achieve the most natural-looking results, it is important to choose a specialist that has extensive training and experience with this delicate procedure. During a Cosmetic Consultation, you can learn more about this procedure as well as our experience and find out if you are a good candidate for surgery.

Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Recovery

It is common for the eye areas to have mild bruising and swelling for a week or two after surgery. Your eyes might also be sensitive to light and be prone to tearing. These are typically temporary side effects that can be minimized by following our doctors instructions for applying lubricating ointments, cold compresses, medications, etc.
