Eyelid Surgery in San Diego

When it comes to signs of aging, the delicate area near the eyes is typically the first place affected. Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of aging and can often begin to show up in individuals in their 20s and 30s. Dr. Brian Reagan performs eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, on patients who desire a smooth, contoured eyelid appearance. Below are several reasons why patients consider this procedure.

Eliminate a Puffy Appearance

Puffy eyes are usually associated with a lack of sleep. If you notice that your eyes appear puffy all the time, eyelid surgery can help. Lower blepharoplasty corrects issues on the lower eyelid, such as excess fat and skin. This area can also be reshaped, creating a more refined appearance.

Lasting Results

Eyelid surgery delivers long-lasting results, meaning patients can enjoy their renewed appearance for years.

Customized Treatment

Eyelid surgery is customized based on the extent of correction needed, the treatment location, the patient’s goals, and other factors. Patients can choose to undergo upper blepharoplasty, which removes excess tissue, restores firmness, and smooths the skin. Lower blepharoplasty targets the lower lids. Some patients may require work on both the lower and upper eyelids to achieve the results they want.

In addition, eyelid surgery complements other surgical and nonsurgical treatments and is often included as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. If you have more than one cosmetic concern, Dr. Reagan will recommend the most appropriate solutions for you.

Short Recovery Period

Recovery from eyelid surgery can last one to two weeks. Swelling and bruising are typical but can be managed by following Dr. Reagan’s aftercare instructions. This may include elevating your head while sleeping and using a cold compress. He will also provide information on how to avoid complications, such as refraining from all strenuous activity as you heal.  Part of your treatment will involve follow-up appointments with Dr. Reagan, which allows him to assess your healing.

Natural Results

Initial results will become visible after a week or two, with final results appearing after all residual swelling has subsided. Dr. Reagan has over 20 years of experience delivering exceptional care and beautiful, believable results. You will still look like yourself after surgery but with a well-rested appearance.
