Eyelid Surgery

With heavy bags, sagging skin and wrinkles, the delicate eye area is one of the first features to show your age. With eyelid surgery at The Roxbury Institute, our plastic surgeons can address these effects proactively – potentially taking years off your appearance and giving you back your bright and youthful eyes.

The Roxbury approach to eyelid surgery

In performing eyelid surgery for our Beverly Hills patients, we want to rejuvenate your appearance while maintaining your natural beauty. To that end, we operate with a very conservative approach. When surgeons are too aggressive during these delicate procedures, you could end up with hollow areas around your eyes, a pulled back appearance or a completely different eye shape. Our “less is more” philosophy prevents these complications from occurring, and ensures that you’re happy with your final results.

In addition, we will always be completely honest with you about the procedures you need to refresh your appearance. In some cases, eyelid surgery is all that’s needed to restore a more youthful expression. In others, however, you may also need a brow lift or another complementary procedure to achieve the precise results you want. At The Roxbury Institute, we believe in truly comprehensive and customized care, and you can be assured that we’ll be upfront with you regarding which treatments you need and which ones are not in your best interest.

Is eyelid surgery right for you?

Eyelid surgery is perfect for Beverly Hills patients who want to rejuvenate their eyes. For example, if you possess puffy eyelids, excess skin, heavy bags, wrinkles and a perpetually tired expression, it may be an ideal solution. In these cases, eyelid surgery with a highly skilled and experienced plastic surgeon has the ability to address these telltale signs of aging in a very natural way, improving your overall appearance and restoring a fresh and youthful expression.

What to expect during eyelid surgery

If you decide you want to rejuvenate your eyes, your first step will be to schedule an initial consultation at the Roxbury Institute. During that meeting, we will assess the signs of aging around your eyes and talk to you about what you’d like to see when you look in the mirror. This conversation is critical to the process, because it makes sure we are aligned with your unique goals and able to produce the results you want to achieve. Once we’ve composed a customized treatment plan that you’re comfortable with, we will schedule your surgery.

To begin the procedure, we will administer general anesthesia, which means you’ll be completely unconscious, safe and comfortable. From there, we’ll make a precise incision hidden in the crease of your upper eyelid. Through that opening, we will address droopiness and heaviness by removing a precise amount of excess skin and fatty tissue, until we’ve achieved a more refreshed look.

Once we’ve addressed your upper eyelids, we’ll make an incision in your lower eyelid, hidden within your natural contours. We will then remove excess skin, fat and muscle from the area to reduce the appearance of heavy bags, tighten lax skin and create a bright and more youthful expression.
