Take Years Off Your Age with an Eyelid Lift
Eyelid surgery procedures can be quite complex. An eyelid lift, however, is a relatively simple, minimally-invasive treatment that corrects baggy lower lids and puffy, fat-filled upper lids. Wrinkled skin on the lower lid is often caused by a loss of collagen production, and excess fatty tissue beneath the skin of the upper lid is what causes puffiness or drooping.
An eyelid lift is a cosmetic procedure that doesn’t require a hospital stay. It is similar to a facelift procedure, just on a much smaller scale. With a simple eyelid lift, you can take years off your appearance and greatly enhance the natural look your eyes once had. Say goodbye to sleepy eyes or droopy facial expressions once you’ve had an eyelid lift performed.
How Eyelids Become Baggy
As we age, our eyelid skin becomes less and less supported by the underlying tissues. The eyelid skin is very thin to begin with, and it suffers from wrinkling and droopiness if collagen production decreases. Gravity begins to pull the lid downward, and the result is shadowy lids that greatly detract from our appearance.
The upper lids become a storage unit for excess fatty tissue. This often becomes apparent after we reach the age of 40 or so. This tissue can be gently and easily removed using simple instruments.
What to Expect During an Eyelid Lift
Before we decide to perform this type of treatment on your eyelids, we will schedule a consultation so we can examine your lids in detail. We will map out a surgical procedure that will give you the most positive results. Although an eyelid lift is an outpatient procedure, there are some precautions the client must take before and after the surgery is performed. This will all be discussed with you in detail before the procedure.
During a typical eyelid lift procedure, the surgeon will remove excess tissue and skin and also tighten the remaining skin in order to achieve a younger-looking, refreshed appearance. We follow a natural crease so that any scars will be virtually invisible.
