Eyelid Surgery in Beverly Hills, CA
Lawndale, Beverly Hills, and Marina del Ray’s Leader in Eyelid Procedures
With age, the skin above and below our upper eyelids begin to droop and sag giving way to an old, tired look. If the eyelids begin sagging too much into the field of vision, surgery may be required. Also, the elasticity of the skin weakens and allows pockets of fat to form. This creates the appearance of puffiness. The lower lids may develop “bags.” With an eyelid surgery called blepharoplasty, Dr. Hecht can help you regain your youthful fresh look.
Trusting your vision to a refractive surgeon is a very serious decision. There are many factors each patient has to consider. Having a skilled refractive surgeon to guide you through the process saves time and gives you peace of mind. After a thorough review, Dr. Hecht will sit with you and explain every aspect of your eyelid surgery. Dr. Hecht is a leading refractive surgeon in Southern California with ophthalmology offices in Lawndale, Beverly Hills, and Marina del Ray. Call (310) 370-5648 to request an eyelid surgery consultation today!
Who is a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
The best candidates for blepharoplasty are those who are in good overall health, don’t have any serious eye conditions, and have healthy facial tissue and muscle.
People with eye disease, including glaucoma or retinal detachment, thyroid disorders, diabetes, cardiovascular disease or high blood pressure are not good candidates for blepharoplasty.
If the eyelids begin sagging into the field of vision, the procedure may be covered by medical insurance if it is deemed medically necessary. Dr. Hecht can check the peripheral visual field to determine of how much vision is affected by the excess skin.
Blepharoplasty can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelid, or both, for cosmetic purposes. This procedure has no effect on vision, but results in looking younger and more refreshed.
