One of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the world, an Eyelid Lift allows recipients to enjoy a rejuvenated and rested appearance.
The skin surrounding our eyes is some of the thinnest on our body, and more vulnerable to the effects of aging.
As this skin relaxes, it can create the appearance of droopy or puffy eyelids and bags under the eye. These effects basically make you look worn-out, older, and more tired than you really are.
How Does an Eyelid Lift Work?
Blepharoplasy is used to treat these conditions by removing the excess skin and fat cells on the upper and lower eyelids.
Who Is a Good Candidate for this Procedure?
Good candidates for this procedure are healthy men and women who have equally healthy facial muscles and skin, do not smoke and have no pre-existing conditions that would impair their outcome or healing.
But all things considered, the very best candidates are people who have realistic goals for the procedure and the outcome expected. It is equally important that people considering eyelid surgery do their research and find the surgeon with whom they feel the most comfortable.
Scheduling an initial consultation gives you a chance to see our facility and find out if you are a good medical candidate for an eyelid procedure. But most importantly, it gives you a chance to meet your surgeon and have all your questions answered, so you can come to an informed and educated decision in which you feel confident.
About the Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Eyelid surgery is most often performed under local anesthesia, on an outpatient basis. To perform the procedure, the surgeon will make tiny incisions along the natural creases of your eyelids, so the scars remain invisible after healing. The surgeon will then remove the excess skin and fat cells and then seal the incision with small sutures. The overall process is extremely simple and only takes about an hour.
Recovery only takes days, and results are almost immediately apparent.
Your eyes are the main focal point for anyone who engages you. They are also one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Cosmetic eyelid surgery is a wonderful way to reverse these aging signs and boost your self-confidence. However, it is important that you do your research and only consider eyelid surgery with complete understanding and realistic expectations.
