Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, results in a refreshed, youthful look to the areas above and below the eyes. Since the eyes are the focal point of visual contact, they are often the first to show signs of a tired, aged appearance. 

At Balikian Plastic Surgery, we offer blepharoplasty for patients in Temecula with sagging and wrinkled eyelids to help rejuvenate the appearance of their eyes and face. 

How Aging Changes Your Eyelids 

Just like other areas of the face and neck, the eyelids may exhibit wrinkles and bulges due to aging and hereditary factors. The excess skin can also interfere with vision.

The surgery to correct these saggy eyelids removes fat, excess skin and/or muscle from the upper and lower lid areas. This procedure can fix drooping eyelids and get rid of puffy bags that develop on or below the eyes.

eyelid surgery - blepharoplasty

Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Richard Balikian performs many different variations of blepharoplasty at his practice in Temecula. He will perform an extensive exam on your eyes and decide which blepharoplasty surgery is right for you.

Options include:

Upper blepharoplasty in which the skin and possibly excess fat or muscle is removed

Lower blepharoplasty in which excess skin and fat are removed through a small incision

Lower blepharoplasty with fat transposition – in which excess skin is removed, and excess fat is folded over to fill a deep tear trough (dark circle)

Trans-conjunctival Lower Blepharoplasty – an incisionless surgery for removing only fat of the lower eyelids (mostly in younger patients)

Lower Eyelid Skin Pinch in which only skin is excised of the lower eyelids with no effect of the fat or muscle.

My surgery was fast and easy, recovery was also good. Doctor explained everything to me the before and after. Was very pleased and will definitely come back in the future. [Single best thing is…] I had a blepharoplasty to remove fat from my lower eyes that always made me look like I was tired. Everything was smooth the day of the surgery. My recovery time was very minimal. I had no pain. Everything went just as the doctor [said] things would go.

Enhancing the Results of Your Eyelid Lift

Sometimes, a chemical peel or laser resurfacing is recommended in addition to surgery to further tighten the skin and improve the fine wrinkling of skin. This procedure is often combined with forehead or brow lift surgery, because excess skin hanging from the upper eyelid may be due to the sagging of the eyebrow.
