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.
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.
