Our eyes are the focal point of our face, revealing our emotions, our health, and unfortunately our age. Studies show that we spend 80% of our time looking at other people’s eyes when we are talking to them. In some cases, accelerated aging in the eye area can make us look older than we are—or than we feel.
Eyelid surgery incisions and surgery details
Depending on the type of eyelid surgery you’re having, Dr. Alizadeh will make a single laser-focused incision in the natural crease of the upper or lower eyelid. Eventually, this will turn into a well-concealed scar. For upper eyelid surgery, he removes extra skin but preserves the muscle to maintain the youthful fullness in the upper eyelid.
If the surgery is being done on the lower eyelid, Dr. Alizadeh will tighten the ligaments of the lower lid while making sure to reposition the fat. He will redrape the lower lid skin as necessary, ensuring a youthful and lasting result. In some cases, he reduces or repositions fat to create a fresh fold along the uppermost portion of the eye (known as double eyelid surgery) then closes each incision with absorbable sutures or biological glues. Depending on the complexity of the procedure, eyelid surgery lasts one to two hours.
