Excellence in Plastic Surgery

Are you considering eyelid surgery? San Francisco plastic surgeon Dr. Javaheri has the experience, skill and expertise to give you the look you want if you have been thinking about blepharoplasty.

If it’s true that the eyes are the windows to the soul, it must stand to reason that they are the most important feature on the face. Over time, the beauty of the eyes can become greatly reduced by excess skin creases and eye bags due to aging. Eyelid surgery in San Francisco can remove excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. While it is most often performed in conjunction with other facial procedures, it can be performed alone as well.

For many people, the aging process results in the stretching of the eyelid skin, resulting in excess folds, wrinkles and sagging around the eye. So often is the case that when heredity is a factor, even younger of middle-aged people may experience changes in the look of their eyes that are usually associated with aging. If you are among one of these groups of people, you may wake up looking tired, just as if you had not slept at all- no matter how much sleep you get each night.

Dr. Javaheri can perform eyelid surgery in his San Francisco clinic that will brighten the face and restore a more youthful appearance. In some patients, this procedure can even improve the sight by removing the excessive skin of the upper eyelids, which can interfere with their peripheral vision.

You may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery in San Francisco if you are healthy, psychologically stable and well-motivated. Most patients seeking eyelid surgery are 35 or older, however, if droopy, baggy eyelids run in your family, you may opt for surgery at a younger age. The first step is to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Javaheri to discuss your goals and expectations.

Eyelid surgery in San Francisco is typically performed on an outpatient basis, normally taking between 45 and 90 minutes, depending on the extend of the procedure. You will be administered either a local or general anesthesia, depending on a number of factors that Dr. Javaheri will discuss with you:

– For a local, the skin around your eyes will be numbed using an injection, usually accompanies by some intravenous sedation to help you feel relaxed and tolerant to any potential pain.

– For general anesthesia, you’ll be completely asleep through the procedure.

    “I have had 3 procedures so far with Dr. Javaheri, they are: tummy tuck with lower body lift, arms & breast reduction , and legs & gluteus maximus lift. My upcoming surgery is a face lift procedure. All these procedures are following weight loss surgery procedure called Gastric Bypass whereby I lost nearly 300 lbs. Dr. Javaheri performed all of my plastic & reconstructive surgeries to a great success. I am very pleased by the results. He even came to the office on a Sunday to deal with a small complication I had following one of my surgeries. It is so unusual to find a surgeon who cares so much about his patients; and an office staff that are so capable.”*
