Time takes a toll on the delicate facial skin. One of the first areas damage will appear is on the upper eyelids. As the muscles in the area weaken and the skin loses its elasticity, it can become susceptible to fatty deposits. The eyelids start to droop with excess skin covering the natural fold. This condition can make the eyelids appear puffy and give your face an aging, tired look.
At Marcus Facial Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles, Dr. Keith Marcus performs blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to correct this issue and restore a more youthful facial appearance. Dr. Marcus is a skilled, double-board certified plastic surgeon who has an aesthetic eye, and who has helped thousands of patients achieve a younger appearance through the delicate art of facial cosmetic surgery.
Why Have Upper Eyelid Surgery?
Upper eyelid surgery in Los Angeles (often called an eyelift in Los Angeles) is performed to treat both functional and cosmetic problems. Severely overhanging eyelids can not only make you look tired and much older than you feel, but can potentially interfere with your vision. Upper eyelid surgery is performed to:
- Remove excess skin concealing the natural fold of the upper eyelids
- Remove hanging upper eyelid skin that is obstructing your field of vision
- Correct any puffiness in the eyelids that add years to your appearance
- Correct excess skin and dry, wrinkled, sagging eyelids
- Make it possible to easily apply makeup to your upper eyelids
- Reduce the signs of aging on the upper eyelids, for a fresher, more youthful appearance
Eye Lift Procedure
Dr. Marcus will administer general anesthesia or intravenous sedation to ensure the procedure is painless and comfortable while performing upper eyelid surgery. He will skillfully and artfully make incisions in the natural creases of the upper eyelids. Dr. Marcus will then remove any excess skin and fatty tissue interfering with vision, or is giving your eyes a droopy, puffy, or tired appearance. He will lift and reposition the remaining skin to give your eyes a more youthful look, and then close the incisions with fine sutures (stitches). The tiny incision scars from the procedure, once healing is complete, are concealed in the eyelid fold.

Benefits of Upper Eyelid Surgery
The upper eyelids can become droopy and puffy as the skin stretches and the delicate muscle structure loses its elasticity and begins to sag. Fat pockets can bulge and become more prominent, making you appear older, tired, or upset, even at the best of times. Unfortunately, this condition is a natural part of the aging process, but the good news is that it can be corrected. Upper eyelid surgery can correct hooded skin on the eyelids and give the face a more youthful, healthier, more vital appearance. It can also correct the vision problems caused by overhanging eyelids.
Upper eyelid surgery in Los Angeles is a popular procedure that has helped many men and women improve their appearance, and remove obstructions to vision caused by loose, drooping eyelid skin.
