Beautiful, engaging, inviting eyes are one of the most essentials components to a youthful appearance and are often the most colorful feature of the face. Our eyes are unique and allow for an incredible range of emotional expression. Age-related changes appear in the eyes – more than any other part of the body – due to squinting, sun damage and genetics. The skin of the upper eyelid loses its elasticity creating a wrinkled, saggy appearance while the lid starts its downward descent resulting in a tired expression that dramatically emphasizes aging.
WHAT IS UPPER BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Blepharoplasty is a surgery performed to restore the upper eyelids to their more youthful, vital appearance. During the procedure, Dr. Yeh uses advanced techniques to remove excess fat, skin and muscle that are responsible for the aged appearance of the upper eyelids. Upper Eyelid Surgery does not correct Crow’s Feet, forehead wrinkles/ furrows or sagging eyebrows. Patients often choose to have a Forehead/Brow Lift and Injectable treatments to correct these issues.

Any man or woman of any ethnicity with a desire to rejuvenate the upper eye area by correcting sagging upper eyelids – could be a good candidate for Dr. Yeh’s Upper Eyelid Surgery in Orange County and Laguna Beach.

Dr. Yeh believes that the initial consultation is most important and should be done face to face with your surgeon. After listening closely and carefully to your concerns, Dr. Yeh is able to do a critical evaluation and make the correct recommendations to address your specific needs. It is during the consultation that you both arrive at a mutual understanding and trust than enables Dr. Yeh to tailor the treatment plan that is best suited to you – not somebody else.
UPPER EYELID/BLEPHAROPLASTY PROCEDURE:
Dr. Yeh typically uses local anesthesia with or without sedation to keep you comfortable during your surgery. Small, well hidden incisions are made in the crease of the upper eyelid and Dr. Yeh works through these to reposition fat, tighten muscles and remove excess skin if needed. This achieves a natural, youthful upper eyelid contour. Dr. Yeh may recommend cold compresses to help minimize and reduce swelling.
