Top 5 Benefits of an Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

The skin around your eyes starts to thin and sag as you age. In fact, many people see signs of damage in this area before the rest of the face. An eyelid lift or blepharoplasty can correct many concerns around the eye area, restoring your bright, youthful appearance. 

What is an Eyelid Lift?

An eyelid lift is a procedure to tighten and smooth the eyelids. It can be performed on the upper, lower, or both eyelids. During this procedure, a surgeon uses small, hidden incisions to lift and tighten the eyelid skin and other structures. An eyelid lift is often performed to address issues like sagging lids, puffy undereye bags, and wrinkled skin.

Top 5 Benefits of an Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

An eyelid lift offers many benefits beyond the improvement of the eye area. Eyes that look older or tired can affect your interactions with others and impact your confidence. Many people find that the advantages of their procedure go beyond the aesthetic. 

Less Eye Strain

Heavy, drooping eyelids can put a strain on the muscles around your eyes. This strain can lead to headaches and tired, aching eyes. An eyelid lift removes the burden, so you are no longer fighting the excess weight when you open your eyes. 

More Alert Appearance

One of the most common complaints about drooping eyelids is that they make you look tired. An eyelid lift makes your eyes look more open and alert, giving others the message that they have your full attention and engagement. 

Increased Confidence

The improvements in your eyes can lead to a boost of confidence. Women often find it easier to apply makeup, and all patients can appreciate changes to their self-image and have more confidence when interacting with others. 

Tighter Upper Lids

An upper blepharoplasty will provide improvements in eyelid laxity, wrinkles, and drooping. Your surgeon will also tighten the muscles and reposition fat pads for a smooth, youthful appearance. 

De-Puffed Lower Lids

Puffy bags under the eyes often appear when the skin begins to thin, revealing the fat pads beneath. Removing or repositioning these pads can give you flat, smooth lower eyelids.

Can You Combine Other Procedures With an Eyelid Lift?

An eyelid lift combines well with many other procedures. Many people who have blepharoplasty also have a brow or forehead lift to provide full rejuvenation of the eye area. People also have an eyelid lift with a facelift since that procedure does not address the eye area. 

Am I a Good Candidate for an Eyelid Lift or Blepharoplasty?

An eyelid lift is a safe, effective procedure with a fairly quick recovery. Good candidates should be in good health and have achievable goals. Ideal candidates want to address aging around the eyes with long-lasting results. Certain medical conditions may prevent you from being a good candidate for this procedure.

Professional staff, quality care during both of my visits, and a beautiful facility. Dr. Neill was great and super efficient. He even took the time to call me later after my surgery to see how I was doing. Can’t get better then that! Will definitely recommend.
