Say goodbye to your tired, aging eyes with Blepharoplasty. Let Drs. Solieman and Litner give your the beautiful alluring eyes you've always desired.
If you look more tired than you feel, it may be because of the signs of aging around your eyes. Droopy eyelids and under-eye bags begin affecting people as early as their late twenties, and are often the very first part of the face to show signs of age. The sagging around the eyes can add several years to a person’s appearance, and are often the single biggest difference between looking young versus appearing old.
Over one hundred thousand people undergo some kind of eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty, each year. Classic techniques focus on removing excess fat from around the eyes, while more recent techniques instead add fat to the area to increase the volume thereby creating a more youthful appearance. Unlike most other centers, here at Profiles Beverly Hills our Facial Plastic surgeons, Drs. Solieman and Litner combine these techniques, as well as other proven methods, to create the customized solution that is best suited for you and you alone.
Eyelid surgery is an excellent option for those individuals whose eyes are beginning to show signs of aging. You may be a candidate if you have one or more of the following symptoms:
During your consultation at our Beverly Hills office, Drs. Solieman and Litman will analyze your eyes, eyelids, and brow shapes to determine the best approach for you.
Prior to your surgery, we will review your medical history with you, to ensure that you are a safe candidate for Blepharoplasty. You will be asked questions regarding your vision, tear production, and need for vision correction. You may also need a complete ophthalmologic evaluation prior to your surgery to check for these issues.
Prior to your surgery, Drs. Solieman and Litner will review all the details of your procedure with you. You will also be given specific instructions on preparing for your surgery, including guidelines for eating and drinking, vitamin and medication intake, smoking, and after care. Please be sure to arrange a ride home from our office after your procedure, as you will be able to return home the same night.
*Results May Vary
Here at PROFILES Beverly Hills, we utilize only board certified anesthesiologists for all our surgeries. You will have a chance to meet with your anesthesiologist prior to your procedure and you will have the opportunity to voice any questions or concerns you may have.
We have found that most of our patients comfortably tolerate upper eyelid surgery under local anesthesia, which numbs the eye area. Occasionally, we may also utilize oral or intravenous sedation along with the local anesthesia. On the other hand, for patients interested in lower eyelid surgery, with or without fat injection, we typically recommend general anesthesia. While you will be awake during your eyelid surgery, you will be relaxed and will not feel any pain.
Our patients are generally able to return home the first night after surgery. Most patients report very little to no pain, but pain medication will be provided to you for the first night, and for the days that follow if necessary.
Drs. Solieman and Litner will check on you during your first night after surgery, and we will see you back in our office the following day to review the results. You will be given a list of activities to avoid for the first several weeks while your eyes fully heal, and your stitches will be removed after about one week.
All of your follow-up appointments will be scheduled prior to your surgery, so that you do not have to worry about making those appointments. Because we at PROFILES Beverly Hills are so committed to your well-being, we will continue to follow your post-operative condition for years after your surgery.
