Upper eyelid surgery information - Blepharoplasty expert in Los Angeles - Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian

An upper eyelid lift is one of the most common procedures performed around the eyes for facial cosmetic surgery.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian performs upper eyelid surgery, otherwise known as a blepharoplasty by plastic surgeons to remove excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids.  The patients who have hooding or droopy skin on the eyelids above the eye, or patients who have excessive fat bags along the medial or lateral aspects of the upper eyelid, can benefit from an upper eyelid lift.  During the procedure, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian uses carefully hidden incisions along the tarsal crease of the upper eyelid in order to remove excess skin and fat from the cosmetically important area.  By meticulously placing sutures and a well hidden incision line along the upper eyelid crease, Dr. Karamanoukian can achieve cosmetic harmony of the upper eyelid without visible or conspicuous scarring. 


During the blepharoplasty procedure, Dr. Karamanoukian will remove orbital fat and hanging skin from the upper eyelid area.  The benefits of upper eyelid surgery include medical benefits to increase the peripheral field of vision and cosmetic benefits to improve the attractiveness of the face and the eyes.  Both men and women are candidates for upper eyelid lifts.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is a double board certified plastic surgeon practicing in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills, and serving the greater Los Angeles areas.  Upper eyelid surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure as a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. 


If you have questions about upper eyelid surgery or facial cosmetic surgery, Dr. Karamanoukian can provide you with a comprehensive consultation that concentrates on the eyelid area, upper face or face.  Dr. Karamanoukian also performs facial cosmetic surgery including face lifts, neck lifts, rhinoplasty, and lower eyelid rejuvenation.
