Common goals for eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) include:

  • Smooth and tighten loose, droopy, wrinkled eyelid tissues
  • Remove "puffy" fatty pockets either above or below the eye
  • Lift eyelid tissues so they no longer hide the natural lid crease or impede vision
  • Create a more open, positive and natural appearance

Eyelid Surgery

Your eyes are said to be the windows to your soul, so why not make sure the view is as pleasing as possible? Eyelid surgery with Dr. Raffi Hovsepian can correct issues with either the upper or lower eyelids, resolving issues both cosmetic and functional in nature.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper eyelid sagginess has a variety of causes; Dr. Raffi Hovsepian will assess you carefully before recommending a surgical plan customized to your needs. Typically, patients will require this procedure because loose excess skin obscures their sight and diminishes the balance and aesthetics of their appearance. In some cases, loose eyelid tissues are caused by low eyebrows, and in this case Dr. Hovsepian may recommend a brow lift instead of eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), in order to target the cause of the problem more accurately.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Most individuals naturally have a small fatty pocket at the lower eyelid, but for a variety of reasons in certain patients this fatty pocket is larger and more noticeable, creating under-eye "bags" that result in a tired appearance. This procedure can be corrected in a small, relatively simple outpatient procedure, and is easily combined with other procedures such as facelift, cheek lift, and injectable fillers.

Eyelid surgery by Dr. Hovsepian requires only a small incision along the lash line or, in certain types of lower-eyelid surgery, a "scar-less" incision along the eyelid's inner surface. Dr. Raffi Hovsepian has extensive experience in facial cosmetic surgery and takes care to take a minimalistic approach in order to ensure healthy results and avoid removing excess tissue.
