Blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery) is hugely popular here in the Newport Beach area. Surgery done on the eyelids can improve the overall appearance of the eyes and face by making eyes look more vibrant. The surgery is extremely popular among Asians since most Asians are born with small appearing eyes and blepharoplasty can significantly affect the appearance of the eyes by making them appear larger and more defined. But eyelid surgery can do much more than just make Asian eyes bigger.
A few of the many benefits that eyelid surgery can offer include giving a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert. The surgery to the upper eyelids can remove excess skin that gives the appearance of puffiness in the upper eyelids. It can also fix loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid and which can sometimes impair vision. And excess skin including those unpleasant bags with dark circles and fine wrinkles in the lower lid can be removed by blepharoplasty.
