Eyelid Surgery San Diego
Often a sign of aging, droopy eyelids can make individuals appear falsely tired, melancholy, or older than they actually are.
Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, can restore an alert, youthful, and cheerful appearance to droopy eyelids and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles that develop around the eyes as a result of aging. Blepharoplasty can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids and in fact is usually conducted on both at the same time.
Blepharoplasty can improve vision by eliminating extra skin and fat around the eyes. Depending on which version or versions are chosen, eyelid surgery can eliminate extra skin and fat around the eyes and reduce bags that develop under the eyes.
Eyelid surgery is also performed with facelift, neck lift or liposuction.
When to Choose Eyelid Surgery
Ideal patients for eyelid surgery are healthy and wish to rejuvenate their appearance. Eyelid surgery can specifically treat:
- Bags under the eyes
- Drooping lower eyelids
- Loose or excess skin hanging down from the upper eyelids
- Obscured vision
- Puffiness around upper eyelids
- Crepe paper wrinkles around the lower eyelids
The procedure should result in smoother, more youthful skin contours around the eyes, presenting a more attractive and energetic appearance. Vision may be improved, and your expressions may appear more positive.
Before and After Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery may be combined with a number of other treatments for the best possible outcome. These treatments may include Botox injections, dermal filler injections, a face lift or brow lifts. Skin treatments such as chemical peels may also be used to treat dark circles under the eyes.

During blepharoplasty, small incisions are made in the crease of the upper eyelid or along the lash line of the lower eyelid. The incisions are strategically placed to minimize the visibility of scarring after surgery.
Next, excess skin and fat are trimmed away. Finally, the incisions are closed with fine sutures. Blepharoplasty surgery typically takes a few hours and can be combined with a facelift, rhinoplasty, or another plastic surgery procedure for the ultimate makeover.
After Eyelid Surgery in San Diego
After eyelid surgery, patients should expect some redness, bruising, swelling, and soreness around the incision areas, which should subside in a couple weeks.
Other side effects may include dry or teary eyes, as well as some sensitivity to light. Dr. Jaibaji can prescribe medication to reduce discomfort or pain. He will also inform the patient of special postoperative instructions that can help expedite the healing process. With the proper post-surgical care, patients are able to resume normal activities after approximately 10 days.
During your consultation you will discuss your complete medical history, as well as the risks associated with eyelid surgery. Possible complications include bleeding, changes in sensitivity, infection, allergic reactions, scarring and asymmetry.
