Santa Monica Eyelid Surgery

Santa Monica Eyelid Surgery, also know as Blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids. Whether you want to improve upon your overall appearance or are experiencing limited vision due to drooping eyelids, Dr. Henry Chen, MD can assess your condition and tailor a surgery plan suited to your needs.  Non-surgical solutions are always considered before deciding upon eyelid surgery in Santa Monica. You may find that a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures are best to achieve the most desirable results.

The most common goals when someone is considering Santa Monica eyelid surgery are either for cosmetic reasons and/or to restore the correct functionality to the eyelid area

There are many causes of ptosis, including weakening of the muscle that opens the upper eyelid, congenital weakness, trauma, prior surgery, or neurologic disease. On the other hand, the most common reason is due to stretching of the tendon that attaches to the main muscle in charge of elevating the top eyelid from aging. Undergoing Santa Monica Eyelid Surgery at the hands of a licensed and experienced surgeon will not only restore a younger look, but will additionally help enhance any visual shortfalls from the ptosis. This process is frequently done in conjunction with an upper eyelid blepharoplasty.
