Facial Surgery | Eyelid Surgery | Beverly Hills | Los Angeles CAAlthough most people reach their adult height during the early teen years, our shape and features continue to develop and change until our late teens. By 20, however, our facial features have assumed their adult form and individuals who are dissatisfied with their appearance can begin to investigate the benefits of facial cosmetic surgery. Unfortunately, even small cosmetic problems—asymmetrical facial features, heavy eyelids (ptosis), excess skin impeding the application of make-up, or excess white below the iris—can detract from the balance and regularity we associate with a pleasing appearance. Luckily, advanced eye surgery techniques pioneered by Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir in Beverly Hills, California offer successful, long-term correction of these and other cosmetic deviations, improving the overall harmony of facial contours and subtly transforming your naturally-gorgeous appearance.

Dr. Steinsapir’s innovative approach to cosmetic surgery, and eye surgery in particular, is especially important for young people in their 20s. His personalized surgical plans are specifically designed to ensure that even the smallest alterations harmonize with and enhance existing facial contours, while his cutting-edge, minimally-invasive surgical techniques avoid an “over-worked” appearance so your results are subtle and natural-looking. As a world-renowned oculofacial and cosmetic surgeon, his years of training and experience enable him to correctly diagnose the underlying causes of common—and uncommon—aesthetic concerns, so you can be confident that your eye surgery will be successful and long-lasting, and will enhance, not undermine, your natural beauty!

What are the benefits of eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a broad term encompassing upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, canthoplasty, or a combination of one or more of these procedures together. Eyelid surgery with Dr. Steinsapir offers a number of significant cosmetic benefits, including:

  • Improving the overall aesthetics of the eyes
  • Correcting asymmetrical or unbalanced eyes
  • Creating a brighter, more alert appearance by removing unwanted fat, excess muscle, and loose skin from the eyelids
  • Eliminating excess skin obscuring the natural folds in the upper eyelid, improving the ease of make-up placement and eliminating potential impediments to proper vision
  • Correcting puffiness and swelling in the upper eyelids and/or bagginess in the lower eyelids
  • Treating upper eyelid ptosis (sagging or drooping)
  • Resolving scleral show (too much white below the iris of the eye)

During your customized eyelid surgery, Dr. Steinsapir will utilize his cutting-edge surgical techniques to precisely alter the eyelid skin and fat to optimally improve eyelid symmetry and definition, while ensuring that all necessary incisions are well-concealed by the natural eyelid shape. The success of his approach—“Structured Micro-Blepharoplasty”—emphasizes the creation of structure rather than overly aggressive “subtractive” surgery. This technique is especially important for patients in their 20s because it ensures beautiful, long-lasting results while accounting for how facial features will change with time.
