If your eyes are making you look old, and you’re ready to do something about it, an eyelid lift may be the right option for you. But since each patient has a unique set of issues, it’s wise to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon about the procedure. A visit to a plastic surgeon will help to answer this question – Am I a candidate for an eyelid lift.
What is an eyelid lift?
An eyelid lift is a procedure that is done to lift and contour the eyelids, and remove bags below the eyes. It also gets rid of puffy eyelids and restores a more youthful appearance to the entire face. Most patients need surgery on both the upper and lower eyelids.
Surgery on the upper eyelids involves the removal of excess skin and fat. For lower eyelid surgery, the extra fat is removed and loose skin tightened.
Are you a candidate for an eyelid lift?
If you have excessive sagging of the upper eyelidsand you would like your eyes to look more open and alert, you may be a good candidate for an eyelid lift. Men and women with puffy lower eyelids or fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, are also good candidates for the procedure.
In addition, eyelid surgery is beneficial for people experiencing impaired vision due to the drooping of the upper eyelids. Candidates for an eyelid lift should also be in good health, and have realistic expectations about surgery.
