Blepharoplasty in Arcadia, CA

Blepharoplasty Eyelid Surgery ArcadiaThe eyes are considered the windows to our souls. They communicate with the world, taking in sights while helping us express ourselves. They have become so important to our identities that they are the focus of attention when we speak to one another. Because of this focus, we tend to make judgments about emotions and general age based on the appearance of the eyes. People can appear tired, angry, sad, meek, or old simply due to the shape and contours of their eyes.

Genetics and age play significant roles in the appearance of the eyes. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed. Whether you need an eyelid lift (upper blepharoplasty), removal of bags and excess skin under the eyes (lower blepharoplasty), or are interested in double-lid surgery (Asian blepharoplasty, or Asian eyelid surgery), scheduling an appointment with Dr. Jen Chow at the Chow Center will allow you to explore your options in a comfortable and confidential environment.

Ideal Candidates for Blepharoplasty

If you are an individual experiencing one or more of the following, you’re a good candidate for blepharoplasty:

  • Sagging skin around the eyes affecting vision
  • Sagging eyebrows
  • Bags under the eyes

However, if you experience one or more of these conditions but suffer from chronic ailments, you may have to undergo a thorough consultation. During this consultation, your past and present medical health conditions will be assessed. If the doctor ascertains that your ailments won’t increase your risk of complications during your blepharoplasty, our team can schedule a date for your blepharoplasty in Arcadia.


For the upper eyelids, the surgeon makes a tiny cut and proceeds to remove extra fat, muscle, and/or skin. Once the removal is completed, the surgeon stitches up the incision. Occasionally, the removed fat, muscle, and/or skin may be surgically attached to another region located near the eye. This is mainly done to enhance the shape and contours of the area surrounding the eye.

For the lower eyelids, the surgeon makes the incision either on the eyelid’s outside below the lower eyelashes or the eyelid’s inside. Next, the surgeon typically removes extra fat and skin and then proceeds to close the incision.

Preparation and Recovery

Dr. Chow will give you detailed instructions regarding how you need to prepare for a blepharoplasty. Typically, patients are advised to:

  • Completely cut out smoking in the weeks leading up to the surgery
  • Avoid alcohol consumption to prevent inflammation, which can affect recovery
  • Refrain from consuming ibuprofen, warfarin, aspirin, and other blood-thinning medications
  • Arrange for transportation following the procedure

Swelling and pain are minor side effects that are typically experienced by patients in the recovery phase. However, these side effects can be managed using over-the-counter pain relief medications. Expect to experience these minor side effects for at least a week before they resolve.

You should also know that these surgeries can be and often are performed in combination with other procedures, including (but not limited to) brow lift, midface lift, facelift, and skin resurfacing. They are also commonly performed together (i.e., upper and lower eyelids at the same time).
