Eyelid Lift

EKicons_EyelidLift

The Eyelid Lift procedure, or blepharoplasty, restores the eyes to a more youthful, alert, and rested appearance by correcting drooping and sagging skin from the upper and lower eyelids.  The Eyelid Lift also addresses fatty pockets or bags around and under the eyes.

 

The eyes are the most prominent and expressive features of the human face.  Our eyes reflect how we feel, and they project our presence, confidence, and connection to the world.  Blepharoplasty is one of the most commonly requested procedures for facial rejuvenation.

Sagging, loose skin may fold over and disrupt the natural contour of the upper eyelids and cause visual obstruction to the sides (blinder effect).  As part of an overall facial rejuvenation, the eyelid lift is a rather simple procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids.  This produces a more vital, refreshed, and youthful appearance around the eyes, leaving patients looking rested and younger.  Many patients also benefit from injections of small amounts of fat along the upper and lower bony rims to help reduce the hollowing and improve skin texture.

 

Recovery

Advances in eyelid cosmetic surgery have reduced postoperative complications and have greatly improved patient satisfaction with results.  Eyelid surgery typically lasts one to two hours, is performed in an outpatient setting, and recovery is generally straightforward.  Sutures are normally removed in a week, and most patients can resume work by then with few telltale signs.
