Beverly Hills is one of those places where you can find top beauty clinics with top dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons who help keep men and women looking fresh and young. Many patients go to these places to look for solutions to their skin aging problems. One common problem is drooping eyelids, which can be fixed through blepharoplasty plastic surgery in Beverly Hills.

Aging causes drooping eyelids, which is due to accumulation of excess skin and fat in the eyelids. Muscles supporting the eyelids start to weaken and lose their hold on to the skin tissue and fat. Fat begins to get displaced, and your eyelids droop, and the skin under your eyes swell (eye bags). If you are 40 years old or even a couple of years younger, take a close look of yourself in the mirror.

Blepharoplasty is not a major cosmetic procedure. Doctors who perform face-lifts in Beverly Hills may also perform eyelid surgery, either as a separate procedure or as a complementary procedure to your face-lift. In fact, this procedure can be done with skin resurfacing, brow lift, and other procedures.

Now, your doctor or dermatologist doesn’t proceed with the procedure right away. They will first assess whether you are a good candidate. To decide if it’s appropriate for you, ask your plastic surgeon about how you might look after the surgery, what the recovery is like, and what medications you should take.

The procedure is done on people who want to lift their sagging eyelids.  In some cases, however, patients want it done because their sagging eyelids make it difficult to see from the side. Anyway, you can opt for eyelid surgery if you have puffy upper eyelids, droopy lower eyelids, and/or significant eye bags.

Your plastic surgeon should inform you regarding the risks of the procedure. Complications can arise due to the procedure itself or from side effects of the anesthesia; although, infections and allergic reactions to anesthesia are uncommon in cosmetic procedures. Risks are not limited to these, as you can suffer from dry eyes, eyelid numbness and dysfunction, scars, vision changes, and eye muscle injury. These things happen when the surgeon isn’t well trained and experienced. So, it is extremely vital that you find a trusted facial plastic surgeon in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills or from your city.

Typically, the surgeon will ask you to discontinue a few things momentarily, and you must follow instructions. First, they will tell you to stop taking aspirin and ibuprofen within a few days before and after surgery. You also shouldn’t take any herbal supplements. If you are taking any medications, you need to inform your plastic surgeon. Also, smoking interferes with proper recuperation of your skin tissue after surgery, so it’s a great reason to quit smoking.
