Loose skin and bags below the eyes can make you look older than you are, but an eyelid lift can restore the youthfulness and vibrancy of your eyes. An eyelid lift is a relatively simple procedure that can refresh the appearance of your entire face. Although it can significantly improve the way you look, you may be wondering – Am I a good candidate for an eyelid lift.
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty, involves the removal of excess skin and fat in the eye area, to improve the appearance of the eyes. This may be done on either the upper or lower eyelids, or on both.
Blepharoplasty takes about 30-60 minutes to perform, and recovery ranges from 5-7 days. However, the swelling can last for several weeks. There are times when the plastic surgeon may recommend a browlift alongside an eyelid lift,for patients experiencing substantial brow descent.
Are you a good candidate?
If saggy upper eyelids are a problem for you, or if you have bags under your eyes, you may be a good candidate for an eyelid lift. An eyelid lift can also be done to correct other concerns such as puffiness in the upper eyelids, droopy lower lids, dark circles below the eyes, and excess skin, wrinkles, or creases in the lower lids.
If you are considering an eyelid lift, it’s advisable to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. The surgeon will discuss your specific goals, and then tailor an appropriate solution for you.
