What is Blepharoplasty?
The skin around our eyes begins to deteriorate as we age. Eyelid skin is very thin so factors, like aging, sun damage, and stress, can easily deteriorate the elastic fibers that create a youthful, energetic appearance. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, rejuvenates a person's look by elevating drooping eyelids and trimming away excess tissue that leads to a weary or saddened appearance. Dr. Husam Elias is an artistic expert at repairing the physical tightness of the eyes to reduce age lines, wrinkles, and a general look of exhaustion. For Pasadena, CA residents and locals from the Los Angeles area, we invite you to schedule a consultation at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery to discuss eyelid surgery.
What Techniques Are Used For An Eyelid Lift?
An eyelid lift is performed under local anesthesia with sedation. In some cases, general anesthesia may be used. The surgery is conducted by making small incisions on the upper lid line, lower eyelash line, or both. After the incisions are made, Dr. Elias will remove excess tissue and stretch the skin and muscle fibers to subtly correct their shape. While surgery cannot prevent your eyes from aging, this procedure is designed to produce long-lasting results. You will likely experience some swelling, bruising, and soreness after the procedure. As these effects subside, the tautness and elasticity of your eyes can continue to improve for up to a year before additional treatment is needed. Dr. Elias will recommend post-surgery care, including lubricating ointment and reduced activity for a couple of days.
Pacific Coast Center Reviews
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
Dr. Stephens is the best!
went here for wisdom teeth removal and Dr Stephens was great. we had a detailed consultation and decided which route was best, then Greg the anesthesiologist called me the night before to address any concerns I was having. The most positive surgery experience I could have had
