About Eyelid Surgery
A person's eyes are a beautiful component of the face that deserves to be shown, but sometimes an excess of skin above or under the eyes can create an aging facial appearance. Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia offers eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) to remove excess skin and lift the lower or upper eyelid, creating a softer look. So many men and women undergo eyelid surgery at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery to reduce puffy bulges, leading to improved functionality and facial appearance. Upper and lower eyelid surgery creates a fresh, youthful appearance and can produce subtle yet noticeable improvements.
Eyelid surgery is a facial cosmetic enhancement that is sought out by both women, as well as men. During your private consultation, treatment options will be discussed with Dr. Movagharnia based on your symptoms that need to be corrected. In most cases, ideal candidates are frustrated with excess, hanging skin and folds above their eyes or bulging skin just under the bottom eyelid. These irregularities can cause vision impairment that can get in the way of daily activities. For a more awake appearance, blepharoplasty may be the appropriate procedure for you. If you have loose skin that droops on the upper eyelid or bags and circles under the eyes, blepharoplasty can correct this to provide you with a younger appearance.

"The Right Choice - After considering an elective orchiectomy for several years, I started serious research on where to have it performed. I had my criteria as we all do, and the CCRS under Dr. Fara Movagahrnia seemed to meet them, so I gave them a call. The office manager, Judy, picked up and we had a friendly discussion of all my concerns. She understood my situation so I was not embarrassed asking about certain details. Judy provided a clear picture of the process, and after thinking it over, I called and scheduled the surgery. After complying with the pre-surgery requirements, I met with Dr. Fara the day before and we discussed my motivation and general health. Up to now all contact with the CCRS was very congenial and informative and I was ready for the procedure. Early the next day I arrived at the nearby out-patient surgery center, met Dr. Fara, got prepped and moved to surgery. I woke up a short time later, rested then dressed. Dr.Fara came to make sure all was OK...which it was, and offered to drive me back to my motel, which he did. All the while his friendly demeanor kept me very relaxed. The next day I was able to drive to his office for a final checkup and was given a warm greeting by the doctor and staff. I was told to call with any follow up questions of which I had a few that were quickly answered. Overall, my orchiectomy experience with Dr. Fara at the CCRS was efficient, friendly, and successful. I still contact the center from time to time and if passing through Atlanta will stop by to say hello. Why go anywhere else for your orchiectomy?"- T. / RealSelf / Aug 12, 2020

During eyelid surgery, depending on the complexity of the surgery, some form of anesthesia will be given. This procedure may be done on the top eyelid by itself, on the bottom eyelid, or a blend of both upper and lower during the same surgery.
Upper eyelid surgery assists in diminishing the hanging of skin that impairs vision and creates a more appealing eyelid appearance. The incision point is often placed along the lash line or crease to trim away tissue and fat.
Lower eyelid surgery is performed to improve puffy skin under the lower lid. In most cases, an incision is placed just under the lash line to surgically remove fatty tissue, and the skin is delicately lifted to produce a smoother look. Sometimes, a nonsurgical laser procedure may be applied to help with discoloration, while dermal fillers can be used for added smoothness if necessary.
What to Expect
Blepharoplasty can take up to two hours based on whether both eyes or one is treated. After the procedure, you should expect a few days to rest and avoid strenuous activities. Ice packs can assist in reducing bruising and swelling. The outcomes from blepharoplasty may last a decade or longer and although the results are long lasting, remember aging does not stop. To complement the surgical outcomes, facial rejuvenation treatments at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery such as lasers, chemical peels, and fillers can be added to create a very fresh appearance.
