The Benefits of Having an Eyelid Lift Procedure

Posted on: September 16, 2018

An eyelid lift gives multiple benefits to someone wishing to look younger. Those who have baggy or tired-looking eyes will see a major improvement once the procedure has been completed. Speaking with a surgeon in our office can be beneficial because they can give more insight into the procedure, the benefits, what to expect and the recovery process. We invite you to keep reading to learn more about the many benefits of the procedure and to find out if it is right for you.

Achieve a youthful appearance

A person can have a younger, more vibrant look to their face with eyelids pulled up. Not only does this help tighten and firm the skin, but fine lines and wrinkles may go away. Skin rejuvenation procedures can also help these areas by further smoothing out the fine lines and creating the refreshed look a person is seeking.

Look less tired and more awake

When the eyelids are pulled back during an eyelid lift, it allows the eyes to open up more. This gives the person more of an awake appearance that helps them both feel and look more refreshed. Since the procedure tightens the skin, the crow's feet that may have made the person look tired previously may also disappear.

See better and more clearly

When the extra skin over the eye is removed, this can help a person to see more clearly. When once the excess skin might have blocked their peripherals, it is no longer a problem. Not only that, but some state that the extra skin on their eyes made it hard for them to keep their eyes open. This is no longer an issue for patients who have had the eyelid lift procedure.

Create the appearance of an eyelid

For those who have monolid eye shapes, the eyelid does not have a double fold in it, which can be troublesome to some people. When this is the case, eyelid surgery can help provide a double eyelid.

Schedule a consultation

Those considering an eyelid lift should schedule a consultation with our office. During the consultation, we can let you know what to expect and discuss options and goals. This surgery may not be for everyone, but for those who want to have a youthful, more awake look, eyelid surgery can be an ideal choice. Patients who have had this surgery are usually pleased with the results, and some have given us before and after pictures that we can show you.
