What to Expect From an Eye Lift

What to Expect From an Eye Lift

If you're considering an eyelid blepharoplasty, more commonly known as an eye lift, there some things that you may want to know. For example, how long is the process? Is it invasive? What are the benefits? The appearance of your eyelids can drastically change the appearance of your face, leaving you to look sleepy even when you’re not. The eyes are also key indicators of age. They may affect how tired you look. Pockets of fat can build up in the eyelids that can cause the tired look and can even compromise your peripheral vision.

What Is the Process?

An eyelift is not as invasive as some think. It generally takes from 30-45 minutes to complete. Performing an eyelid lift involves making an incision on the outside of the eyelid in the crease, making it completely hidden when it heals. The surgeon then stitches the skin together after the excess tissue is removed. There are both surgeries for the upper eyelid and the lower eyelids. Some patients may want to receive both. Although the lower eyelid is the most sought after procedure, the upper eyelid procedure is a more difficult surgery to perform. The reason why is because there is a slimmer margin for error during the process. The doctor may need to perform several steps in order to successfully complete the surgery, including removing skin as necessary, tightening eyelid tendons, lifting the mid-face, and/or excising fat.

Look Better, Feel Happier

Once the surgeries are done and the healing process is over, when you look in the mirror you'll see a younger-looking, confident you! Eye lifts are a great way to look and feel rejuvenated.
