Eyelid Surgery with Dr. Hu

Roll back the clock on aging with a rejuvenating blepharoplasty in Santa Clarita, CA

Loose or sagging eyelids can make you look older than your age and may even impair your vision. Dr. Howard Hu performs eyelid lift surgeries at Valencia Plastic Surgery, helping the residents of Valencia, Santa Clarita, and the surrounding areas of California look and see well!

Because eyelid surgery is such a delicate and exacting procedure, it requires the skill, precision and aesthetic sensibility of an artist. Dr. Hu is able to provide beautifully nuanced results that appear entirely natural, and for this reason is considered to be among the best blepharoplasty surgeons in Valencia, Santa Clarita and beyond.

What is an Eyelid Lift?

An eyelid lift, also known as our blepharoplasty in Valencia, is a surgical procedure that can be performed to alter the appearance of either the upper or lower eyelids. Many people choose this surgery to remove troublesome bags, wrinkles, and sagging skin to maintain a youthful and fresh appearance. The procedure yields results that can last over 10 years

Benefits of an Eyelid Lift

Eyelid lifts can reduce sagging and puffiness in both your lower and upper lids and give your eyes a more youthful appearance. Eyelid lifts also have the potential to improve vision by removing excess skin that obstructs line of sight.

Dr. Hu will provide you with unlimited access to our library of eyelid lift before and after photos. Your results may be different than those shown here, as outcomes vary from individual to individual.

But rest assured that the majority of our patients are thrilled with their Santa Clarita blepharoplasty surgery.

How is an Eyelid Lift Performed?

For those who only require treatment of the upper eyelids, this procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia. Patients requiring treatment of their lower eyelids or both upper and lower eyelids will have surgery under general anesthesia.

An eyelid lift begins with local anesthesia to numb the area being worked on. Dr. Hu will then make an incision along the crease of your eyelid or along your lower lash line, depending on which area he is tightening.

Excess skin and/or fat is then removed. When tightening the lower eyelids, fat may not be removed but instead be redistributed to present a more even appearance and reduce puffiness.

For the lower eyelids, some patients may only require the removal of a small amount of fat without the need for skin excision. For these patients, Dr. Hu can perform a transconjunctival technique, which means the only incision needed is on the inner part of the eyelid, and therefore there are no visible external scars.

Once the appropriate amount of tissue has been removed, Dr. Hu will then close the incisions. Although they are noticeable initially, there will be no visible scars once they have healed.

After surgery, you will be monitored until the effects of the anesthesia wear off, which can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. You will be released once Dr. Hu is confident there are no complications, provided you have someone available to drive you home.
