RG Blepharoplasty


As part of the aging process, lines, creases and sagging skin around the eyelids can cause you to look constantly tired and can even make you look older than you really are. At RG Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia performs eyelid surgery to revitalize and restore your appearance.

Aged eyelids are a consequence of the following factors:

• Loss of muscle tone

• Loss of elasticity & collagen

• Loss of support (underlying bone support)

• Loss of facial fat

These factors can result in droopy or puffy looking eyelids, as well as undereye hollows or heavy undereye bags. Depending on which factors of aging are affecting the appearance of your eyelids, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will determine which treatments will best help you achieve your goals. He may choose to incorporate both an upper and lower blepharoplasty, or he may determine that you need just one of the two procedures. During your consultation with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia, he will listen to your goals for surgery, as well as examine your eyelids, in order to recommend the best procedure plan for you.

What is Blepharoplasty?


What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, also referred to as cosmetic eyelift surgery, is one of the most common cosmetic procedures Dr. Ramirez Gavidia performs. Blepharoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that restores a youthful and energetic look. Surgery can be performed with minimal sedation or local injections of anesthesia. While blepharoplasty is a relatively straightforward procedure, it is still a delicate surgery, which requires an artistic touch to attain the desired results.

Although blepharoplasty is a commonly performed procedure, it is not merely a simple excision of skin and fat from the upper and/or lower lids. Blepharoplasty surgery requires a unique understanding of eyelid architecture. Over excision of skin, muscle or fat can be devastating. As an expert in blepharoplasty surgery, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia, is able to preserve and reposition fat, form a natural lid fold (crease), elevate a weakened eyelid muscle (ptosis repair), tighten the outer corner of the eyelids (canthoplasty), and have an overall understanding of what beautiful eyes look like. A consultation with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will give you the information necessary to understand what procedures are appropriate for you.

What can I expect from Blepharoplasty?


Dr. Ramirez Gavidia takes a very customized approach to blepharoplasty, creating a surgical plan for each patient that is unique to the needs of their aging eyelids. No two sets of eyes are the same, and Dr. Ramírez Gavidia uses his years of experience and expertise to provide each one of his patients with a tailored blepharoplasty to achieve a youthful and harmonious outcome.

What is the recovery like after Eyelid Surgery?


Following your blepharoplasty, the sensitive skin of your eyelids should be protected from excessive sun exposure and from too much friction as the area heals. Typically, only minor discomfort is experienced after this procedure, which is easy to control with mild analgesics and aftercare instructions that will be provided to you by Dr. Ramirez Gavidia.

After all the swelling has subsided, you will be able to fully enjoy your revitalized appearance. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will schedule follow-up appointments with you to make sure you are completely satisfied with your results.
