Under the guidance of board-certified doctor Ali Sepehr, the staff at The OC Center for Facial Plastic Surgery helps clients with single or double eyelids reduce excess skin and achieve a more youthful appearance. The laser upper-eyelid lift kicks off with an in-depth consultation, during which Dr. Sepehr determines candidacy, enlightens clients on necessary precautions, and observes eyelids as they flirt with errant butterflies. Next, during the approximately 60-minute treatment, a trained physician eschews blades in favor of the SmartSkin laser. Pulses of light energy work to eliminate excess skin, outfitting faces with taut eyelids. The high-tech device keeps swelling and bruising to a minimum, but average downtime can last five to seven days. Like a caterpillar’s metamorphosis into Tinkerbell, the entire process can occur on a single day, but The OC Center for Facial Plastic Surgery recommends scheduling consultations on a day separate from the day of the procedure to ensure ample preparation time. Technicians can create double eyelids for an additional fee.
