What is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, removes excess fat, muscle, and skin from the eyelids. In addition, it corrects droopy eyelids that may impair vision. Creating a smoother and firmer eye area, this procedure contributes to a youthful and refreshed appearance. Knowing that eyes form the most striking and noticeable feature of our appearance, Dr. Michael Omidi approaches eyelid surgery as both a sensitive rejuvenating procedure and a form of art. As he likes to put it, it’s in the eyes that “the lovelight shines, humor twinkles, and anger flashes.” Under Dr. Omidi’s expert care, eyelid surgery will allow you to make an instant statement about your personality, your health, and your inner beauty.

Are You the Right Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

The best candidates for eyelid surgery are those with droopy upper eyelids or bags under the eyes. Oftentimes, the patients requesting blepharoplasty complain of constantly having a tired and weary appearance regardless of how much rest they get. Under Dr. Omidi’s expert care, eyelid surgery will make you look refreshed and vibrant again. With puffy upper eyelids and dark circles under the eyes gone, you eyes will appear more rested so that your friends will have no longer have any reasons to advise you to get some sleep. In addition to producing spectacular cosmetic effects, eyelid surgery can significantly improve your vision by removing loose upper eyelid skin that obstructs the sight line. By treating overhanging eyelids, the procedure will effectively expand your peripheral vision. In addition, by tightening the skin and eliminating the “crepe paper” appearance of eyelid wrinkles, blepharoplasty will make it easier for you to apply makeup that tends to smudge in the eyelid creases.
