An eyelid lift, also known as Blepharoplasty, can enhance the appearance of the eyes. Saggy or drooping eyelids can be an age-defining feature for many people and make us look older than we really are. It is a major reason people consider eyelid surgery to remove the excess sagging skin, to create a more alert and youthful eyelid appearance. Yes, an eyelid lift can really make you look younger!
An eyelid lift can make it appear as though you can finally open your eyes fully. During the procedure, tissue and sagging skin will be removed based on your underlying facial muscle structure, bone structure and the symmetry of your eyebrows. While eyelid surgery will not eliminate other cosmetic issues like dark circles, crow’s feet, or other facial wrinkles, it can make you look refreshed, younger, less tired and more alert. Eye lifts can be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as laser resurfacing, filler injections, or forehead lifts.
Though results can be dramatic, they will rejuvenate and freshen the eyes—not change the structure of your eyes. The upper eyelid blepharoplasty is a procedure associated with a very high satisfaction rate and improved self-image. It can easily result in a more natural and youthful appearance and erase 5-10 years, while not changing the shape or overall character of your face.
*Individual results may vary*
Full results can take up to a year to take shape, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t see amazing results right away.
