A Visionary Approach
Is drooping or loose skin on your upper or lower eyelids making you look old or tired? Innovative developments in cosmetic surgery have made blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, a more attractive option than ever before. A skilled surgeon like Orange County Surgical Specialists’ Reza Bolourian M.D., F.A.C.S, takes multiple factors into consideration when planning your blepharoplasty procedure, including the elasticity of your skin, the position of your eyebrows, the distribution of fat in your cheeks, and the condition of the underlying tissues of the eyelids. By looking at your entire facial anatomy and cosmetic appearance, Dr. Bolourian will perform a procedure that carefully lifts and repositions the delicate tissue above or below your eyes, giving your entire face a more youthful, bright, refreshed appearance.
Many people are troubled by puffiness, sagging, fine lines, or loss of elasticity in the upper or lower eyelids.
You may have tried creams, serums, eye masks, or other measures to tighten this area, but topical products can only accomplish so much. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, offers a long-lasting approach to rejuvenating your eyes. In the procedure for a blepharoplasty Mission Viejo cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Bolourian, carefully lifts and repositions the skin, fat, and muscles of the upper or lower eyelids, removing any excess tissue via tiny, easily concealed incisions. By adjusting these delicate tissues, blepharoplasty reverses many of the effects of aging, sun exposure, and gravity, offering a subtle yet dramatic way to revive your appearance.
Set Your Sights Higher
Mission Viejo blepharoplasty patients benefit from Dr. Bolourian’s meticulous and compassionate approach to planning every procedure. We stay on the leading edge of care, studying the latest techniques and considering your unique facial anatomy when planning your procedure to craft long-lasting, natural-looking results.
You will notice a reduction in puffiness, sagging, and wrinkles, and your eye area will be smoother and tighter. Your eyes will appear more open, alert, and vibrant. In addition to looking refreshed and rested, you may find it easier to apply eye makeup. If sagging upper eyelids have progressed to the point of impeding your eyesight, blepharoplasty can also improve your range of vision.

An Art and a Science
Dr. Bolourian performs blepharoplasty as an outpatient procedure at our convenient, state-of-the-art surgical facility. A combination of local anesthesia and twilight sedation is administered for your comfort. Dr. Bolourian creates small incisions either along the lash line or in the natural fold of the lid. He then carefully repositions muscle, fat, and skin, removing any excess tissue as needed before closing the incisions. You will be ready to return home the same day after we have monitored you for a short while in our recovery area.
See Yourself in a New Light
No one will know quite what has changed—only that you look refreshed, rested, and revitalized. Excess, sagging skin and puffy fat deposits will be eliminated for smooth, youthful-looking eyelids. The underlying muscles will be taut again, opening your eyes wider. By practicing good sun protection and caring for your skin, you can maintain your results for years. Blepharoplasty patients love the way their results enhance the natural beauty of their eyes and subtly elevate their entire appearance.
The Future is Wide Open
We will prepare you to make a smooth recovery with detailed aftercare instructions. Make sure to attend any post-operative appointments to check your healing. It is normal to experience bruising around the eyes for approximately three to five days. You may apply ice packs to help with swelling. Your stitches will dissolve on their own. Always contact us with any questions. We are here to support you and help you achieve an optimal surgical outcome.
Insurance does not cover blepharoplasty when it is performed for cosmetic reasons. If blepharoplasty is performed to improve your range of vision, insurance may cover part or all of your procedure.
Most patients take three to five days off of work to allow for the swelling to subside. Some patients elect to return to their regular routine earlier.
