Eyelid lift, also called eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty, is one of the most popular facial rejuvenation procedures offered by La Jolla surgeons, Drs. Dennis Bucko and Farid Brad Mozaffari. When carefully planned and expertly executed, eyelid surgery can dramatically revitalize eyes that appear tired or older. In their many years of plastic surgery practice, Drs. Bucko and Mozaffari have helped thousands of patients minimize noticeable effects of aging on the lids and around the eyes.
Why Patients Choose Dr. Bucko & Dr. Mozaffari
For patients who feel embarrassed by tired, sad or angry-looking eyes, Drs. Bucko and Mozaffari’s transformative work is truly life-changing. With younger, more rested looking eyes, patients experience a boost of self-confidence. The surgeons’ talents allow them to preserve patients’ unique beauty, yet make noticeable improvements.
In their many years of practice, plastic surgeons Dr. Bucko and Dr. Mozaffari have mastered their approach, relying on their artistic sensibilities and expert training in plastic and general surgery. They keep their skills sharp through involvement with leading professional associations and leadership positions within the plastic surgery community. Drs. Bucko and Mozaffari have had extra training in eyelid surgery and extensive experience in reconstructive and cosmetic eyelid surgery. They have published scientific articles and teach other plastic surgeons their techniques.
Eyelid surgery is customized based on the individual patient’s particular areas of concern. These concerns could include any of the following:
Extra, loose or wrinkled upper or lower eyelid skin
Excess fat on the upper or lower eyelids
Loose skin on the upper lids that sags into the line of sight and inhibits vision
Puffiness on the upper or lower eyelids
After speaking with the patient about their specific concerns, and examining their eyes, Drs. Bucko and Mozaffari draft a plan of treatment. The upper eyelids or lower eyelids can be treated, or both.
During surgery, excess skin and fat are removed from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Fat can be redistributed and the muscles can be altered, as needed, to tighten the lids and restore a clear line of sight. Undereye bags are reduced. Fine wrinkles around the eyelids are smoothed.
The surgical modifications are performed though tiny incisions in the natural creases of the upper lid and underneath the lower lash line to avoid visible scarring. The transconjunctival blepharoplasty technique involves removing fat from the lower lids only through an incision made in the lower lash line, avoiding a skin incision.
If the patient has expressed additional age-related concerns in other areas of the face, Drs. Bucko and Mozaffari might recommend combining eyelid surgery with another facial rejuvenation procedure. For example, if the patient is bothered by saggy skin along the jawline and on the neck, Drs. Bucko and Mozaffari may recommend a combination eyelid lift with neck lift. Or, if the mid-face region is problematic, facelift can help. Non-surgical treatment options such as laser skin resurfacing, Botox treatment and injectable fillers are also a great way to complement the results of eyelid surgery and improve the appearance of the skin.
