Will a blepharoplasty procedure improve dry eyes? Santa Monica Plastic Surgery Blepharoplasty

Dry eyes are a common problem for adult men and women due to a variety of conditions, including severe and chronic allergies.  A lower eyelid blepharoplasty is less suitable for a patient with chronic dry eye as it may exacerbate the condition.  Patients with dry eyes may experience increased symptoms after lower eyelid blepharoplasty and this is a condition that should be discussed with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian prior to the initiation of surgery.  Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is less commonly associated with dry eyes and  patients with chronic dry eyes may undergo an upper eyelid blepharoplasty to correct upper eyelid hooding without problems.  Dr. Karamanoukian is a board certified plastic surgeon and an expert in upper and lower eyelid surgery.  He is available for cosmetic and medical consultation for eyelid rejuvenation with upper or lower eyelid blepharoplasty.  Please call our office at 310-998-5533 to schedule a consultation for eyelid surgery.
