Look More Refreshed and Alert with Blepharoplasty
It has been said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. Indeed, the eyes are perhaps the most expressive of the facial features. However, over time, the effects of sun damage, the aging process, and heredity can take their toll on the delicate skin around the eyes. Indeed, many people find that, as they age, their eyes grow tired looking, adding years to their appearance. Dr. A.M. Yenikomshian restores the eyes’ youthful appearance with eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty. Serving patients from San Jose, Los Gatos, and surrounding Bay Area communities, Dr. Yenikomshian uses his years of experience and surgical expertise to help people achieve their cosmetic goals. His approach takes into account each patient’s unique facial characteristics, anatomical composition, and goals for the procedure.
What Is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery is a procedure in which the skin around the eyes is lifted and tightened to give patients a more youthful appearance. Dr. Yenikomshian removes excess skin and tissue from around the eyelids to improve the appearance of bags under the eyes, reduce droopiness of the upper and lower eyelids, and minimize wrinkles and fine lines around the lower eyelid. The procedure can be combined with a face lift, rhinoplasty, BOTOX® injections, microdermabrasion, IPL® Photofacial™, and other cosmetic procedures to give patients a complete makeover.
Patients who want more information on eyelid surgery, including eyelid surgery cost, should contact Dr. Yenikomshian’s San Jose plastic surgery center to schedule a consultation.
Candidates for Eyelid Surgery
Before prescribing eyelid surgery, Dr. Yenikomshian meets with patients to determine whether they are suitable candidates for the procedure. His personalized approach to eyelid surgery has earned him an outstanding reputation among cosmetic surgeons and patients alike. The most appropriate candidates for eyelid surgery are adults who do not smoke, have healthy facial tissue, and have realistic goals for the surgery’s outcome. Patient with eye diseases (such as glaucoma, dry eye, or detached retina), thyroid disorders, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular disease should disclose these conditions to Dr. Yenikomshian during the eyelid surgery consultation at his office in San Jose. In some cases, instead of eyelid surgery, Dr. Yenikomshian may recommend skin resurfacing techniques (to improve the skin around the eye), a brow lift (to treat crows’ feet or forehead lines), or a mid face lift (to correct pronounced creases around the nose, mouth, and cheek region). Dr. Yenikomshian will work with you to create a customized treatment plan and help you fulfill your goals for cosmetic improvement.
The Blepharoplasty Procedure
Dr. Yenikomshian performs the blepharoplasty procedure at an accredited surgical center in San Jose. To begin, Dr. Yenikomshian first marks the areas to be treated. Next, he administers a general or local anesthesia. When the patient is fully anesthetized, he makes tiny incisions in the treatment areas. He then removes excess skin, fat, and muscle, and tightens the skin. Finally, he closes the incisions with fine sutures that leave nearly undetectable scars. Most patients will experience minor swelling, bruising, and discomfort after eyelid surgery. While these symptoms will diminish, patients can contact Dr. Yenikomshian for pain management options and help in case of complications. Dr. Yenikomshian and his team provide excellent follow-up care after blepharoplasty.
