Will all of my eyelid fat be removed during eyelid surgery? Santa Monica Plastic Surgery

During upper eyelid blepharoplasty, skin and orbital fat is removed from the upper eyelids to restore a more youthful appearance to the eyelid area.  The amount of eyelid fat that is removed during a blepharoplasty procedure depends on the amount that is protruding along the medial and central fat pads.  This amount of fat varies from person to person, but the overall goal is to not remove the entire fat pad.  During your outpatient blepharoplasty procedure in Santa Monica, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian will strive to maintain a natural look to your upper eyelid area. 


Patients choose upper eyelid blepharoplasty because of cosmetic and medical concerns.  A cosmetic blepharoplasty seeks to improve upper eyelid hooding and restore a more natural almond shape to the eye.  A medical or functional blepharoplasty is performed to improve visual hooding of the upper eyelids.  The visual field hooding results from excessive skin and fat along the upper eyelid areas.  Once this is removed, peripheral vision is improved and patients are able to see better along their peripheral plane of site.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an expert on upper eyelid blepharoplasty and will perform a comprehensive examination during your consultation for blepharoplasty.  Please call our office at 310-998-5533 to schedule your appointment.
