Inland Empire's leading eyelid surgery center

Our eyelids are often the part of our face most affected by the aging process, and nowhere is this more noticeable than with the lower eyelids. Puffiness or sagging skin in your eyelid can give you a tired, heavy look even when you feel rested and bright. Fortunately, you can once again look on the outside the same way you feel on the inside with lower eyelid surgery.

When you visit In Focus, you are visiting an oculofacial surgeon who has what it takes to give you precisely what you need. Our expert surgeons deliver the best look and sight possible through lower eyelid surgery. We believe that the world focuses on your eyes, so your eyes are our focus.

Is Lower Eyelid Surgery Right for Me?

Lower eyelid surgery, or lower blepharoplasty, is the optimal option for those who want to improve concerns with their lower eyelid including:
  • Bags
  • Dark circles
  • Excess skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Chronic puffiness
However, it is not the only option, and you may be interested in one of several non-surgical alternatives. Though surgery provides the most noticeable and longest-lasting results, many patients prefer a less-invasive approach. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatments and procedures that can also help rejuvenate your appearance. Non-surgical options include:
  • Lower eyelid fillers
  • Botox
  • Laser treatments
  • Radiofrequency treatments
  • And more!
There are many options available to help you achieve the desired look. When you visit In Focus, we will go over your specific situation to help you find the optimal procedure. During this consultation, you will have a chance to express your aesthetic goals. Then, working with our surgeon, you will receive a personalized plan that will match those needs.

Lower Eyelid Surgery Procedure

The surgical procedure involves minimal, locally applied anesthetic, as well as intravenously administered sedatives to help ease the patient into a relaxed mood. However, other sedation options are available to provide you maximum comfort throughout the procedure.

The process generally takes between 1-3 hours, although this can change depending on the specific procedure. Many patients choose to have several procedures at once to deliver a complete facial rejuvenation.

No surgery is ever rushed. Instead, we take the time and care to ensure you receive the best results possible.

What Can I Expect From the Recovery Process?

You can expect some swelling for a week or two, along with some side effects, including itching and dryness. We provide medications to help control any pain or discomfort you experience after the procedure.

It is recommended that you get as much rest as possible while avoiding the gym and the pool. Contact lenses and activities that strain the eye should be avoided as well.

Is There a Scar?

With lower eyelid cosmetic surgery, we plan, create, and stitch the incision so that it is as unnoticeable as possible. While a scar is unavoidable, we use our expertise to hide it from view using your body’s own natural folds.

Are There Any Non-Surgical Alternatives?

There are, including:

  • Lower-Eyelid Injectable Filler–Dermal fillers consist of highly-refined hyaluronic acid. Using this injectable filler, we can contour your eyelids as a minimally invasive way of giving you the look you want. This is the most common procedure we perform.
  • Botox–A popular method of reducing wrinkles and sagging tissue, botox injections soften the contractions of the muscles producing the wrinkles, allowing for a softer, more vibrant look.
  • Skin Resurfacing Treatment–An increasingly popular option, this treatment involves firming loose skin with chemical peels, microdermabrasion, microneedling, and more.

Radiofrequency–Accutite is one of the newest, most exciting non-surgical treatments for puffy lower lid bags. We are excited to be one of the few practices in Southern California to offer it.
