Dr. Chernoff offers a unique and innovative approach to Eyelid Surgery called a Laser Eyelid Lift. The procedure is known as Blepharoplasty or Eyelid surgery. What makes Dr. Chernoff’s Eyelid surgery distinct, is that Dr. Chernoff uses a state-of-the-art laser to make the incisions. This allows Dr. Chernoff to seal off the blood vessels during the procedure. This creates less bleeding and swelling. It also creates improved results, and a faster recovery than traditional eyelid surgery.
Dr. Chernoff’s Laser Eyelid Lift helps men and women improve the appearance of droopy upper eyelids and reduces the extra skin. Additionally, Dr. Chernoff is able to improve lower eye bags and puffy lower eyelids.
Benefits of Eyelid Lift Surgery in Santa Rosa
An upper or lower eyelid surgery can help to create a more rested and youthful appearance. Whether you are looking to rejuvenate your appearance or you have experienced problems that interfere with your vision, eyelid lift surgery can improve your eyelids. During eyelid lift surgery, Dr. Chernoff may perform one or more of the following procedures to achieve the desired result:
- Tighten sagging or loose skin that results in folds along the eyes and interferes with the upper eyelid’s natural contour
- Minimize fine wrinkles and excess skin on the lower eyelid
- Remove any excess skin that impairs the field of vision
- Reduce under eye bags that are sometimes associated with bulging or sagging eyelids
- Remove excess fatty deposits that can cause the eyelids to appear puffy
- Lift lower eyelids that droop
Dr. Chernoff has performed thousands of eyelid lifts for lower eyelids and upper eyelids. Along with effectively addressing excess skin, this procedure can also sometimes help to address excess fat. Our patients are extremely happy with their results. Our patients receive compliments on their natural results. This is particularly true when the procedure is combined with a facelift and/or a brow lift.
Dr. Chernoff’s Approach
During your initial consultation, We will evaluate your eyelids to determine the severity and laxity of your skin. Some patients have hanging skin that goes over their lids. Others have large bags and excess fat under the eyes. Based on your specific concerns, we will customize a plan that will be tailored to address your specific needs. As part of your consultation, we will discuss with you the best approach to achieve optimal results. In some instances, combined eyelid surgery along with a brow lift or a facelift may be recommended to achieve the results you desire.
Am I a Good Candidate for Eyelid Lift Surgery?
A good candidate for eyelid lift surgery is any healthy individual who has no medical conditions that might interfere with normal healing. Candidates should be non-smoking and have both realistic goals and a positive outlook.
We educate our patients that a drooping upper eyelid is sometimes the result of the eyebrow and forehead skin relaxing. For these patients, Dr. Chernoff will recommend an Endoscopic Eyebrow Lift in addition to an Upper Laser eyelid Lift. Dr. Chernoff’s tiny incisions are hidden in the hairline for eyebrow lifts and in the crease of the eye for upper eyelid surgery.
A severely drooping eyelid can be caused by the upper eyelid muscle stretching. This condition is referred to as eyelid ptosis and may require a separate surgical treatment to correct.
Recovery and After Care for Laser Eyelid Lift Surgery
Following your eyelid surgery, Dr. Chernoff and our talented team of recovery and after care nurses will provide you with specific instructions regarding the best way to care for your eyes to promote healing while reducing the potential for infection.
