Eyelid Lift Surgery in Monterey

Men and women of all ages may seek an eyelid lift with Monterey plastic surgeon Douglas Sunde, M.D. due to excess muscle, fat, and skin around the eyes. This condition tends to make an individual look old or tired. In some cases, the excess muscle, fat, and skin may even interfere with vision. An eyelid lift procedure (blepharoplasty) is a very popular surgical option in Monterey.

Your Individual Goals

Each eyelid lift is an individualized procedure. During your initial consultation, Dr. Sunde will realistically discuss your goals to design the most appropriate surgical plan. Blepharoplasty is often performed in conjunction with other facial surgeries, such as a brow lift. Together, you and Dr. Sunde decide which procedures he will perform in order to achieve the desired results. Once a date for surgery is set, our office will give you detailed instructions about how to prepare.

Eyelid Lift Procedure Details

Depending on your needs and desired results, Dr. Sunde may focus on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both.

For the upper eyelid, Dr. Sunde makes incisions that follow the natural lines of the eyelids, extending into the laugh lines or other existing creases. He generally conceals the incision within the natural fold of the upper eyelid. Through this incision, Dr. Sunde removes any excess skin and fatty tissue.

For a lower eyelid cosmetic procedure, Dr. Sunde often conceals an incision below the lower lashes. Through this incision, he removes any excess skin, muscle, and fat to create a more refined, refreshed appearance. In some cases, Dr. Sunde may redistribute this fat to eliminate puffiness or bulges. For some patients, Dr. Sunde can remove the fat in the lower lid from the inside of the lower eyelid (Conjunctiva), leaving no or limited external visible scars.
