Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Monica

Eyelid Surgery

As the most expressive feature of the face, the eyes contain youth and vitality. Unfortunately they are also prone to some of the most severe signs of aging. As they develop wrinkles and bags, patients may look sad or angry without feeling either of those things. At the office of Dr. Karamanoukian, we offer eyelid surgery to help correct signs of aging in the eyes. Also known as a blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery restores life and vigor to the eyes, helping patients look as young as they feel.

Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

When one examines how the aging process affects the eyes, it’s easy to see why eyelid surgery is among the top cosmetic procedures around. Both the upper and lower eyelids are liable to develop sagging skin, excess fat and unwanted folds. When these occur, patients often look years older than they actually are.

Eyelid surgery is a minor procedure that delivers major results. It allows patients to go home the same day as their surgery with minimal recovery time and discomfort, making receiving eyelid surgery a convenient but effective procedure.

  • With Dr. Karamanoukian, eyelid surgery effectively corrects the following issues:
  • Excess skin or wrinkles on upper eyelids
  • Drooping in the upper eyelids
  • Upper eyelid hooding
  • Visual obstruction due to excess fat or skin on upper eyelids
  • Bags and wrinkles under the eyes

In order to provide the most effective correction possible, Dr. Karamanoukian begins with a thorough consultation. He listens to your cosmetic goals and performs an examination to determine his professional opinion of what should be done. In this way, he establishes total understanding between doctor and patient. By providing results that are 100% unique to each patient, Dr. Karamanoukian delivers among the best eyelid surgery around.

Nonsurgical Lower Eyelid Lift

For patients not ready to undergo surgery, or who simply don’t need it, Dr. Karamanoukian offers a nonsurgical lift of the lower eyelids. This procedure can help strengthen the underlying contours and tighten the skin under the eyes. This results in a reduction or complete elimination of bags and wrinkles that contribute to an aged appearance.

A lower eyelid lift is performed with a Fractional CO2 Laser. By using this revolutionary laser, Dr. Karamanoukian can resurface the skin below the eyes, allowing it to regrow into a replenished, rejuvenated appearance. It’s a way of giving this skin a fresh start. With minimal recovery time and drastically reduced discomfort from a surgical procedure, a nonsurgical lower eyelid lift may be the perfect option for you.
