Eyelid Surgery

repairs droopy & puffy eyelids
Your New Look Awaits

What is Eyelid Surgery?

As we age, our eyelids begin losing their elasticity, causing the upper lids to droop and the lower lids to look baggy. But age isn’t the only reason for droopy eyelids – some could be caused by genetics, environmental factors, or poor habits.

People who have sagging skin on their eyelids can look tired and older than their actual age. Furthermore, excess fat from the upper eyelids can hang down and impede a person’s vision.

Eyelid surgery is considered an effective treatment for people who are suffering from such conditions. This is where Skin Works Medical Spa can help.

What Is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is a surgical approach that is aimed at reducing the excess skin, fatty tissue, and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids.

However, removal isn’t always the primary solution in droopy eyelid surgery. Certain tissues may simply need to be repositioned so that the desired outcome can be achieved. Besides improving the contour of the eyelids, this type of treatment can tighten the skin around the eyes and give you a more rejuvenated appearance.

But eyelid surgery isn’t just a procedure with cosmetic benefits – it could also be used to help improve the way a person sees. Eliminating the excess skin that covers the eyes can resolve problems with obscured vision.


What Are the Types of Eyelid Surgery?

Have you ever asked the question “Where can I get eyelid surgery near me?”

At Skin Works Medical Spa, we are the treatment provider of choice in South Bay, California. We offer a range of eyelid surgery options that have aesthetic and functional results.

Here are the types of eyelid surgery we can do for our patients:


Upper Eyelid Surgery


An upper eyelid surgery, also called upper blepharoplasty, is a technique used to address common upper eyelid problems. People who have wrinkled, puffy, or droopy eyes can have this done so they can rejuvenate their appearance.


Each person may experience different procedures in upper eyelid surgery, such as the tightening of drooping skin or repositioning of excess eyelid fat. However, the overall goal of this treatment remains the same: improving the look and functionality of the upper eyelids.


Lower Eyelid Surgery


Lower eyelid surgery is the opposite of upper eyelid surgery as it is designed to address prevalent lower eyelid issues such as bagginess, shadows, and dark circles. Our expert plastic surgeon will start this 1 to 2-hour operation by creating a minor incision around the edge of your lower eyelid and removing any excess skin and fat.


In lower eyelid surgery, patients can expect their undesirable lower eyelid problems to be resolved. These results should last for a minimum of 8 years or more.


Double Eyelid Surgery


A double eyelid surgery, typically known as Asian eyelid surgery, is a procedure to treat patients who have monolid eyes or eyes that don’t have eyelid creases. Although there’s nothing wrong with monolid eyes from a medical standpoint, some people simply want to change their appearance and one way they can do it is through this type of treatment.


What makes double eyelid surgery ideal is that it allows people to choose between an incisional or non-incisional approach. Choosing the incisional technique may be good for those with thick skin and excess fat while the non-incisional procedure could be great for those without.

How Long Does It Take to Recover from Eyelid Surgery?

The recovery time for eyelid surgery goes through 3 phases: bruising, swelling, and maturation.

The initial skin discoloration will last for about 2 to 3 weeks, so you should expect to have a changed appearance immediately after your operation. You can wear sunglasses during this time to hide the bruising.

Swelling is expected to take place once you reach 8 weeks after your treatment and beyond. The diminution process of the bump is slow but steady, so it’s important to be patient.

Finally, if your eyelid surgery requires incisions, scars should be expected once the first 2 phases have been resolved. These scars will reach a maximum point of improvement after a year or more and should be unnoticeable once it fully heals.


Tips to Recover Quickly After Eyelid Surgery


  • Take your time: Be prepared to take the time off from your usual daily activities – whether this involves things to do at work or school. It’s essential that you spend the proper amount of time to rest and heal up so the treatment will produce its best results.


  • Apply appropriate self-care: Using ice packs for the bruising and swelling, cleaning eyelids gently, using eye drops as prescribed, and not rubbing the eyes can help with the healing process.


  • Keep your eyes protected: Wearing dark sunglasses including a hat can protect your eyes from sunlight, strong wind, and other conditions that could hamper your recovery.


  • Avoid stress and rigorous activity: Before and after surgery, you want to avoid doing exercises and other intensive activities. These actions, particularly after the operation, could cause an increase in blood flow to the eyes which could result in bleeding.

Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?


The ideal candidates for eyelid surgery are people who have no existing eye problems while having good overall health.

It’s important to inform your eyelid surgery provider ahead of time if you have the following conditions:


  • Eye diseases such as a detached retina, dry eye, or glaucoma

  • Cardiovascular issues such as high blood pressure

  • Thyroid problems such as Graves’ disease

  • Diabetes


The main goal of eyelid surgery is to help enhance the overall appearance of your face by eliminating droopiness, bagginess, and dark circles around the eyelids. The results of successful treatment could make you look younger and have a more rejuvenated look.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that everyone has different eye sizes and alignments and not everyone will have the exact same results.

That’s why it’s important to consider your expectations carefully before you undergo eyelid surgery.

Our expert plastic surgeons at Skin Works Medical Spa will discuss with you your expectations and everything you need about the procedure. This helps ensure that you fully understand what eyelid surgery entails before and after treatment.

If you think you are a good candidate for eyelid surgery, get in touch with us today to book an initial appointment so we can assess your candidacy.

How Should I Prepare for Eyelid Surgery?

At Skin Works Medical Spa, we want all of our patients to know what to expect in their operations and to be at ease when deciding to get blepharoplasty. That’s why before any commitments are made, your potential plastic surgeon will discuss with you the following:


  • Your medical history: It’s important to inform the doctor if you have eye problems like glaucoma or dry eyes at this point. The physician would also like to know if there are any medications or supplements you’re currently taking and if you smoke or drink alcohol regularly.

  • What your expectations are before and after the procedure: Being transparent with our patients is why Skin Works Medical Spa remains the top med spa in California. We want to know what you expect before and after the procedure and what motivates you to choose this path.


We will also perform the following procedures before the eyelid surgery:


  • Physical examination

  • Visual examination

  • Photography of your eyelids
