Lower eyelid surgery
Lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a cosmetic procedure designed to revitalize the natural contours of your face by erasing years of damage to the lower eye area caused by environmental exposure, a stressful lifestyle, and the natural aging process. When your eye surgery is performed by a skillful oculofacial and cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir, the results of this amazing procedure are often so subtle that your friends will not even know you “had work done”. Instead, they might notice how refreshed you look, wonder why you look so relaxed, or even ask where you went for vacation!
The skin of the lower eyelid is extremely delicate and fragile, and unfortunately, sub-optimal techniques or a cookie-cutter approach can have an artificial, unappealing, and even damaging impact. When considering eyelid surgery, it is critical to select a surgeon who specializes in both oculofacial and cosmetic surgery such as Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir, whose extensive education, innovative techniques, and years of experience have made him a world-renowned expert in cutting-edge eye surgery. At his welcoming office in beautiful Beverly Hills, California, Dr. Steinsapir will work closely with you to develop a personalized surgical plan designed to ensure you will be completely satisfied with your rejuvenated, naturally-gorgeous appearance!
Reverse a tired appearance
Lower eyelid surgery is designed to reverse a tired appearance, erase signs of aging and sun exposure, improve facial contours, and give the face a brighter, refreshed look. Lower eyelid surgery can correct multiple problematic eye issues, including:
- Fullness or puffiness under the eyes caused by excess fatty deposits
- Dark circles, hollows, and bags under the eyes
- Droopy lower eyelids revealing significant white below the iris (scleral show)
- Excess skin and wrinkles around the lower eyelid
For many patients, Dr. Steinsapir addresses these unsightly cosmetic problems with a Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty, which involves removing and/or subtly contouring excess fatty tissue through an incision behind the lower eyelid. This less invasive technique produces optimal aesthetic results without visible scarring or distortion of facial contours. In some cases, excess fat removed from the lower eyelids can be transferred to the mid-face region to fill in and enhance hollow facial contours without requiring external fat grafting, which carries the risk of tissue rejection. For individuals with excess lower eyelid skin, additional incisions may be required to facilitate skin removal; however, Dr. Steinsapir will take every precaution to ensure that functional muscles near the lower eyelid are not damaged and that visible scarring is minimized.
If you are seeking truly exceptional facial rejuvenation that will amaze (and confound) your friends, the first step is an extensive consultation with Dr. Steinsapir to determine your unique aesthetic concerns and to discuss the benefits—and potential risks—of lower eyelid surgery. Dr. Steinsapir will work closely with you to ensure that you understand all of the surgical options available to you and to develop an individualized surgical plan that will subtly accentuate your natural beauty. Dr. Steinsapir prides himself on his forward-thinking, minimally-invasive surgical techniques designed to safeguard your health while ensuring that changes to your eyes harmoniously blend with the natural balance and beauty of your face.
