Loose skin and folds along the upper and lower eyelids can have a negative effect on your overall appearance. Drooping lids can also impair your vision. The best way to smooth the skin of the eyelids is to have an eyelid lift performed. This is a relatively simple cosmetic procedure that results in fewer signs of aging and a more naturally contoured shape of the lids.
Eyelid drooping is a result of aging factors that include a buildup of fatty tissue beneath the skin and a thinning of the eyelid skin. We strongly recommend that you consult with us before choosing a method for correcting this problem. An eyelid lift, also known as a blepharoplasty procedure, can take years off your appearance, but you need to get all the facts before you decide whether this procedure is right for you.
Candidates for Eyelid Lift Surgery
The individual should be in overall good health, and any medical conditions should be revealed to our surgeon during the initial consultation. Generally, ideal candidates for the procedure have signs of aging on the eyelid skin or around the perimeter of the eyes caused by thinning skin and poor dermal support. Fat buildup beneath the skin can be removed during an eyelid lift procedure.
How an Eyelid Lift is Performed
The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient. Each surgery is customized for the patient based on their wants and needs. The procedure may address only the upper lids, or it may only address the lower lids. Often times, both the upper and lower eyelids are worked on.
Recovering from the Procedure
It is important to understand that some downtime is required after blepharoplasty. It is important to follow our team’s instructions regarding healing during this time for optimal results. Once you have fully recovered from the procedure, you can enjoy your refreshed, youthful appearance.
