What is an EyeLift aka Eyelid Lift Surgery?

Eyelid Surgery, also called an EyeLift is performed to brighten your eyes and give your face a naturally healthy, well-rested, and revitalized appearance.

As we age, the skin around our eyelids stretches and loses its ability to withstand the pull of gravity. Our facial muscles weaken, and tissues around our eyes begin to sag. This creates puffy bags, heavy folds, and in some cases, noticeable pockets of fat around the eyes that make us look tired, angry, or unhappy. A lot less vital than we’d like to appear.

Aesthetic eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries available to individuals seeking to improve their appearance. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids in order to achieve a more alert, well-rested, and youthful appearance.

One of the primary benefits of aesthetic eyelid surgery is improved vision. When the upper eyelids droop, they can interfere with a patients natural line of sight, making it difficult to see clearly. Aesthetic eyelid surgery can also help to improve the appearance of the eyes. Drooping eyelids can make a person look tired and aged, particularly if they have excess skin or fat that makes the eyes look puffy or swollen.

Blepharoplasty can help to remove this excess skin and fat, giving the eyes a more alert, youthful, and attractive appearance. This can help to improve the patients overall facial appearance.

Eyelid surgery is an effective and safe procedure that provides many benefits to those seeking to improve their appearance and vision.

Whether you are interested in a subtle natural look or dramatic results, your Eyelid Surgery will be fully customized according to your existing facial anatomy, unique surgical requirements, and desired aesthetic results.

Two Types Of EyeLift Surgery

Upper eyelid surgery

Incisions are strategically placed on the upper eyelids, removing excess skin and fatty tissue. Incisions are hidden in the natural contour of your upper eyelid. They will continue to fade and smooth out as you heal over time.

Lower eyelid surgery

This procedure involves the removal of excess skin and fat. Incisions can be made just under the lower lash line or inside the lower lid.

Together, you and your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will review all of your options in detail to determine which type of Eyelid Surgery is best for you.

Choosing Your Surgeon

When considering a surgeon, it’s important to research all of your options and choose a Surgical specialist who is Board Certified in both Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. While many plastic surgeons perform many different types of surgeries, you should select a surgeon who focuses strictly on a specific procedure and is recognized for excellence in this procedure.

What are the benefits if your surgeon has a reconstructive surgery background? Most of the world’s best aesthetic surgeons began with reconstructive practices. In fact, almost all of the groundbreaking techniques in aesthetic surgery have reconstructive origins.

Reconstructive surgery cases are typically more complex and often require highly specialized surgical techniques. Comfort, confidence, and predictability with advanced reconstructive surgery techniques have become powerful tools often adapted to aesthetic procedures.

All of the Plastic Surgeons at The First Glance are Board Certified Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgeons. Many of our surgeons are also Double Board Certified.
