Eyelid Lift

An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the eyes by removing excess skin and fat.

What is an Eyelid Lift?

An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the eyes. It involves removing excess skin, muscle, and sometimes fat from either the upper or lower eyelids.

The goal of this popular cosmetic surgery is to alleviate signs of aging around the eye area, thereby rejuvenating one's overall facial appearance.

Why Choose an Eyelid Lift?

People opt for an eyelid lift for various reasons. Some seek it out as an anti-aging remedy, since droopy or sagging eyelids often make one appear older. Others may undergo this surgery due to vision impairment caused by drooping upper lids.

Blepharoplasty can also address aesthetic concerns such as under-eye bags and puffiness that may result from fat pad prolapse in the lower eyelids. Let's delve into what exactly happens during this surgical process.

The Procedure of an Eyelid Lift

During a typical eyelid lift procedure, local anesthesia is applied around the eye area. The surgeon then makes precise incisions along the natural creases of your upper and/or lower eyelids to minimize visible scarring.

If you're having upper blepharoplasty, excess skin and fat are removed through these incisions. The remaining skin is then tightened before the incision is stitched up.

For lower eyelid surgery, the surgeon removes or redistributes excess fat, muscle and sagging skin. The incision is then closed with fine sutures.

Recovery and Results

Post-surgery, patients may experience swelling, bruising, irritation, or dryness in the eye area. However, these symptoms tend to subside within 10-14 days.

The results of an eyelid lift are typically long-lasting. Upper eyelid surgery can last at least 5-7 years and lower blepharoplasty rarely needs to be repeated. Of course, your eyes will still age naturally after the procedure.

In conclusion, an eyelid lift can significantly enhance your aesthetic appearance by making your eyes look more refreshed and vibrant. Always consult with a qualified cosmetic surgeon to discuss your options and potential risks.
