What is blepharoplasty?
What do you notice first about a face? For many folks, it’s the eyes. Your eyes light up your face and can reveal emotion, communication, and truthfulness. In an ideal scenario, eyes and eyelids function well together, helping a person to look friendly and youthful. However, Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Sean Kelishadi understands that is not always the case. In Newport Beach, CA, there are both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options at SSK Plastic Surgery to improve the appearance of sagging skin above or puffy skin below your eyes.
What are the benefits of getting eyelid surgery?
Our Newport Beach, CA patients who receive eyelid surgery enjoy a number of benefits from this procedure, such as:
- Improved peripheral and overall vision
- Reduction of loose and sagging skin in the eye and brow area
- Youthful, refreshed appearance with the minimally-invasive procedure and quick recovery
- Treatment for scarring and hyperpigmentation around the eyes

Am I a good candidate for eyelid surgery?
At SSK Plastic Surgery, we encourage patients to consider eyelid surgery to address a variety of cosmetic and medical concerns. With age and time, the thin, delicate skin around the eye socket can increase in volume, creating vision-obstructing folds and wrinkles. Even before eyesight is obscured, these folds can create concerning aesthetic problems for individuals. If you find these wrinkles getting in the way of your everyday life, contact our office in Newport Beach, CA to set up your consultation today.
What Problem does eyelid surgery solve?
Droopy, puffy, loose, and wrinkled tissues on the upper or lower lids can interfere with how light is reflected. This creates a scattered image rather than a smooth, clear one of you. Those problems - bags, and dark under-eye circles - can make you look tired, older than your age, grumpy, and unapproachable. In patients who demonstrate additional signs of aging and of sagging muscles and skin, a facelift and/or neck lift may help to achieve more-symmetric rejuvenation.
How does an eyelid lift work?
As your Orange County Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Kelishadi will use safe, modern techniques to repair or improve your eyelids in an outpatient procedure known as blepharoplasty.
Each procedure that we perform is custom-tailored to the patient’s needs. In a nutshell, we will remove extra skin, fatty tissues, or both to rejuvenate your eyelids using incisions that we conceal within the natural contours surrounding your eyes. Blepharoplasty can help you to achieve the best overall function and impact on the appearance of your eyes. This eyelid surgery in Orange County is highly effective alone or as part of a facelift to maximize the beauty of this important facial feature.
For patients who desire blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, we may remove herniating or excess intra-orbital fat that is protruding. In some cases, fat grafting is used to restore volume that may have been lost in the upper cheek due to aging. This balancing act of removing fat from an area of excess and restoring fat where it has been lost re-establishes a smoother lid-cheek junction. In many patients with lower-eyelid aging, the lid-cheek distance is lengthened. We can also normalize this junction with one filler or a combination of various formulations. The product’s consistency and longevity are a few of the variables we can discuss to ensure that your aesthetic goals are met.
Also, if you have frown lines or crow’s feet when making facial expressions, we have methods and strategies using neurotoxins, normally Botox or Dysport. This strategy in effect performs “chemodenervation”; blocking the nerves, neurotoxins keep wrinkle-causing muscles from moving when you change your facial expressions. Only the small areas that you’ve chosen to treat are affected. Your result can be an enhanced appearance of smoothness to look younger.
What can I Expect after my eye lift?
After your procedure, your eyes should be more noticeable and allow a more-appealing reflection of light from your face. This brings a more-rested, happier, and friendlier appearance. Looking refreshed and younger may make you feel equally so! In rare cases, more commonly with lower eyelid surgery, dryness and/or redness of the eyes may occur and last 2-3 weeks. But, don’t worry--we have remedies to help in making your recovery a smooth process. With any blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, a variety of other temporary symptoms may occur, such as light sensitivity or excessive tearing. Each person may react differently. Whatever your concerns, we will enhance your experience by providing you the utmost comfort and care. If you have sutures, we will remove them within 5 days. Most likely, you will be allowed to apply makeup around that time, too. You may be ready to go back to work within a week so long as (a) you feel normal and (b) you can see clearly and you can function safely to drive and do your job.
