You may have heard the old adage “the eyes are the windows to the soul.” When we look into another’s eyes, we search for clues about who they are and how they feel. But for many people, the effects of aging, genetics, and external factors like sun exposure have made their eyes send the wrong cues. You may be sending the message that you are tired or sad when really, you feel great.
Eyelid surgery in Los Angeles fights the effects of time and circumstance to restore a naturally youthful and refreshed appearance to the eye area. Dr. Zoumalan offers both non-invasive and surgical rejuvenation solutions for the eyes and brows.

Why Consider Eyelid Surgery?
Signs of aging usually show around the eyes sooner than other areas of the body. This is because the eyes house the thinnest, most delicate skin we have. Drooping eyelids not only make a person’s face look older, but they can also make it look tired or sad– even angry. Eyelid surgery in Los Angeles counteracts the effects of aging so your eyes properly express your emotions.
Another issue that arises with droopy eyelids is they can obstruct vision. Here, eyelid surgery allows the patient to open his or her eyes more fully, restoring the ability to see clearly.
What is Botox?
Botox is a muscle-relaxing neurotoxin used to improve visible lines and wrinkles around the eyes, between the brows, and across the forehead. In addition to using Botox around the eyes, Dr. Zoumalan utilizes Botox to give the brows a subtle lift. Both procedures are ideal for those seeing the first signs of aging and the slight sagging of the upper lids.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is known as “the gold standard” for rejuvenating the eye area. A type of eyelid surgery in Los Angeles, blepharoplasty eliminates excess skin and repositions fat around the eyes by creating an incision in the natural crease of the lid. This incision is virtually invisible when healed. Blepharoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia and recovery is relatively quick and painless. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper lid, lower lid, or “quad” (combining upper and lower eyelid surgery.)
What is Browlift Surgery?
If the brows need more than a small lift, browlift surgery may be recommended. Browlift surgery is done in addition to blepharoplasty to rejuvenate the eye area. Often, the combination of procedures reduces the need to remove too much skin from the eyelid, because the brow lift tightens the eye area more naturally. In combination, brow lift and blepharoplasty create more comprehensive, youthful-looking results.
