Our eyes communicate our emotions.

Blepharoplasty helps to correct imperfections in your upper and lower eyelids by enhancing the contours and tautness of the periorbital skin. They are responsible for the majority of our non-verbal facial communication with other people. Unfortunately, aging causes the loss of collagen and elasticity in the area around our eyes, negatively impacting our appearance.

Sagging skin over the eyes and puffy under eyes make you look tired, worn out, and aged. They can even interfere, and reduce the scope of your vision. Blepharoplasty is a surgery that requires great finesse, an experienced hand, and a discerning eye. Dr. Hendricks has had years of experience performing blepharoplasty. He has helped many patients resolve their drooping eyelids and puffy under eyes, restoring an unimpaired, smooth and youthful visage.

What is a Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty surgery corrects droopy eyelids that have begun to sag over time due to age. As part of the procedure, Dr. Hendricks may remove excess skin, fat, and tissue that has accumulated above and below your eyelids. These excess tissues result in droopy upper eyelids, sagging eyebrows, and bags under your eyes.

Dr. Hendricks will reposition the periorbital skin to resolve the puffiness or drooping around the eye. This leaves you with a smoother and more youthful-looking appearance. Additionally, many of his Newport Beach blepharoplasty patients also experience an improved range of vision as a result of the procedure.

What is a Lower Blepharoplasty?

Lower eyelid surgery removes or repositions excess skin and tissue in your lower eyelid. It addresses puffy or swollen looking under-eye areas to give you a more awake and refreshed appearance.

What is an Upper Blepharoplasty?

Also known as an upper eye lift, upper blepharoplasty is a common facial plastic surgery that rectifies excess skin on your upper eyelid. This excess skin can hide the eyelid crease creating the impression that you are worn out, stressed, or even sad. Blepharoplasty is a safe procedure that enhances your facial features by opening your eyes again for a bright and more youthful appearance.

How long is the recovery from a Blepharoplasty?

Dr. Hendricks is a triple board-certified Newport Beach plastic surgeon, cares about his patients and ensures you have a safe procedure and smooth recovery. Since, with blepharoplasty, we are dealing with the sensitive area of the eyes, you can expect some discomfort around your eyes for a few days. Dr. Hendricks may advise you to wear protective bandages or gauze over your eyes as well as pain medication to alleviate any soreness. It is normal for your eyes to be red and bruised for two to three weeks.

Avoid the urge to rub your eyes. Ice compresses can help minimize swelling. You can expect your stitches to dissolve or be removed about a week after your procedure. During the day, limit your physical activity, especially any taxing exercises, for a minimum of two weeks.

At night, keep your head elevated while sleeping. Some patients can experience some blurred vision and sight impairments. It is best to not read or watch a program on television or your computer for too long as it will put a strain on your eyes at a time when they are in recovery from surgery. Be patient. Your eyes are a great asset and you want to ensure you take the necessary measures to ensure the treatment area heals properly.
