Los Angeles, California (PRWEB)October 08, 2015
Dr. Ebbie Soroudi of Soroudi Advanced LASIK has performed his 1,500th blepharoplasty procedure in West Los Angeles. With an increased popularity in the procedure, Dr. Soroudi has been able to help women and men of all backgrounds in the greater Los Angeles area achieve the results they are looking for. According to data released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, eyelid surgery also known as blepharoplasty or an “eyelid lift” is one of the top five cosmetic procedures in the United States with approximately 207,000 eyelid surgeries performed in 2014.
Blepharoplasty is a procedure performed on the upper or lower eyelids that typically involves the careful removal of excess skin, fat and muscle. The remaining skin is then lifted, tightened, and smoothed to give a more youthful appearance.
Blepharoplasty is performed for a number of cosmetic or functional reasons including:
● Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid sometimes impairing vision
● Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
● Bags under the eyes
● Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris
● Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid
The procedure’s popularity is in part because of its cosmetic effects accomplished with a minimally invasive and bladeless technique. Having blepharoplasty is an effective way to reduce the signs of aging without having to undergo more invasive techniques. Patients who have had blepharoplasty report looking more youthful, rested and having increased confidence about their image.
Dr. Soroudi of Soroudi Advanced LASIK and Eye Centers on the treatment, “From a cosmetic standpoint, eyelid surgery is probably the most effective way to improve one’s appearance and take years off the way they look. Unlike a full face-lift which changes the way people look, cosmetic eyelid surgery preserves one’s appearance, but helps them look so much younger.”
Dr. Soroudi has performed more than 600 blepharoplasty procedures to date, is an associate member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and has been recognized as one of the most sought after eye and eyelid specialists in the Los Angeles area.
