Blepharoplasty Santa Rosa

Santa Rosa's Leading Choice for Blepharoplasty

With age, the skin on our eyelids can become loose and fall, creating a hooded look that lacks a defined eyelid crease, while diminishing fat under the eyes can cause puffiness and bags. These signs of aging can give the impression of fatigue and age. Dr. Chernoff in Santa Rosa provides a cutting-edge solution with his laser eyelid lift technique, also known as a blepharoplasty, revitalizing your eyes for a fresher, younger appearance.

Dr. Chernoff's method at his Santa Rosa practice involves using a laser for making incisions, which offers improved results compared to conventional eyelid surgery techniques. The accuracy of the laser reduces bruising and swelling and cuts down on the recovery period, enabling individuals to enjoy the benefits of rejuvenated, youthful eyes with less discomfort and more efficiency.

Who is a Candidate for a Blepharoplasty?

If drooping eyelids and bags under your eyes are diminishing your look, considering a laser eyelid lift could be beneficial. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, refreshes the appearance of both your upper and lower eyelids. This technique is effective for both men and women who are experiencing unwanted drooping and puffiness around their eyes.

During your first visit to our Santa Rosa office, Dr. Chernoff will conduct a thorough evaluation of your eyelids, paying special attention to the looseness of the skin and how much it sags. Some individuals might find their skin draping over their lids, while others could notice pronounced bags and excess fat under their eyes. By customizing an approach that addresses your specific concerns, we aim to craft a tailored treatment plan that revitalizes the area around your eyes.


What is Blepharoplasty and How is it Performed?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a sought-after cosmetic procedure designed to correct sagging upper eyelids and bags under the lower eyelids. With over two decades of experience, Dr. Chernoff has refined his unique laser eyelid lift technique, performing more than 10,000 procedures and earning recognition as a leading specialist in eyelid surgery.

The blepharoplasty procedure entails surgically eliminating excess fat and skin from both the upper and lower eyelids, which tend to gather with age. For the upper eyelids, a small incision is made in the natural fold of the skin. Dr. Chernoff employs a specialized laser method to accurately excise unwanted skin and fat. To address under-eye bags or fat pads, a small cut is made inside the lower eyelid, leaving no visible scar. Following the removal of fat, Dr. Chernoff might also perform laser exfoliation on the lower eyelids to promote new collagen production, tighten the remaining skin, and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

Upper and lower eyelid surgery is a highly effective method for correcting:

  • Drooping skin that creates folds around the eyes, disrupting the natural contour of the upper eyelid and, for some, reducing the field of vision
  • Excess skin on the lower eyelid
  • Puffiness and bags under the eyes
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Getting Ready for Surgery

Before undergoing any surgical operation, Dr. Chernoff advises all patients to go through our "Patient Guide for Plastic Surgery". This guide outlines critical considerations that patients need to ponder while contemplating a surgical procedure.

What is the Blepharoplasty Recovery Process?

The healing period for laser eyelid surgery differs from one individual to another. For a basic upper eyelid lift, targeting skin and minimal fat removal, the recovery process is fairly swift. Swift recovery implies feeling better within a few days, though some bruising and discoloration may occur. The extent of skin and tissue involved directly affects the length of the recovery time. However, in the majority of instances, patients typically recuperate within a week or less.

After your eyelid surgery, Dr. Chernoff, along with our committed recovery and aftercare nursing staff, will give you detailed guidance on how to properly look after your eyes to aid in the healing process and minimize the risk of infection. We will conduct daily check-ups following your blepharoplasty to monitor your recovery progress closely. Our team is here to support you at every stage of your recuperation.
