Eyelid Lift Santa Rosa

Your Premier Destination for Eyelid Lifts in Santa Rosa

As we age, eyelid skin can sag and droop, leading to a hooded appearance without a clear eyelid crease, while fat loss under the eyes results in puffiness and bags. These changes can make individuals appear tired and older. At his Santa Rosa location, Dr. Chernoff offers a solution. His innovative laser eyelid lift technique rejuvenates your eyes, giving them a more youthful and rested look.

This surgical approach by Dr. Chernoff at the Santa Rosa facility uses a laser for incisions, improving outcomes over traditional eyelid surgery methods. The precision of laser use minimizes bruising, swelling, and shortens recovery time, allowing both men and women to achieve beautifully rested eyes more comfortably and efficiently.

Who Is A Candidate For A Laser Eyelid Lift?

If sagging eyelids and under-eye bags are affecting your appearance, a laser eyelid lift might be the right option for you. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, revitalizes the look of both your upper and lower eyelids. This procedure is suitable for both men and women troubled by unwelcome skin sagging and puffiness around the eyes.

In your initial consultation at our Santa Rosa location, Dr. Chernoff will carefully assess the condition of your eyelids, focusing on skin laxity and the extent of sagging. Some individuals may experience skin that overlaps their lids, while others might have significant bags and excessive fat beneath the eyes. Tailoring a strategy to your unique needs, we'll develop a personalized treatment plan aimed at rejuvenating your eye area.


What Is Eyelid Surgery And How Is it Performed?

The procedure known as eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a popular cosmetic procedure to address droopy upper eyelids and lower eyelid bags. Dr. Chernoff has spent over 20 years developing his innovative laser eyelid lift technology. He has performed over 10,000 laser eyelid lifts and is considered an expert in the field of eyelid surgery.

A blepharoplasty involves the surgical removal of excess pads of fat and skin on the upper and lower eyelids that accumulates as a result of aging. For the upper eyelids, a tiny incision is placed in the natural skin crease. Dr. Chernoff utilizes his proprietary laser technique to precisely remove excess skin and fat. Under eye bags or fat pads are removed using a tiny incision inside the lower eyelid. Once completed no incision is visible. After the fat is removed, Dr. Chernoff may use laser exfoliation of the lower eyelids to stimulate the growth of new collagen, shrink the residual skin, and improve fine lines and wrinkles.

Upper and lower eyelid surgery is an excellent procedure to address:

  • Sagging skin that results in folds along the eyes and interferes with the upper eyelid’s natural contour and in some impairs the field of vision
  • Excess skin on the lower eyelid
  • Under-eye bags and puffiness
  • Fine wrinkles

Preparing for Surgery

Prior to any surgical procedure, Dr. Chernoff recommends that all our patients read our "Patient Guide for Plastic Surgery". The guide explains important points that all patients should think about as they are considering a surgical procedure.

What Is The Laser Eyelid Lift Surgical Recovery Process?

Recovery time for laser eyelid surgery varies depending upon the patient. In a simple upper eyelid lift, with skin and only mild amounts of fat being addressed, the recovery is relatively quick. Quick means that you will feel well in a few days, but you can expect some bruising and discoloration. The more skin and tissue that needs to be addressed, the longer the recovery. In almost all cases, patients recover in about one week or less.

Following your eyelid surgery, Dr. Chernoff and our dedicated team of recovery and after care nurses will provide you with specific instructions regarding the best way to care for your eyes to promote healing while reducing the potential for infection. We will see you every day after your blepharoplasty procedure to ensure you are healing as expected. We help you through every step of the recovery process.
