How Does an Eyelid Lift Work?
Even small changes to the eyelids can make a big impact on your appearance, which makes an upper and lower blepharoplasty one of the most effective procedures for shaving years off your appearance. Dr. Stein makes discreet incisions in locations where the healing scar will be unnoticeable—in the crease for the upper lid and along or inside the lash line for the lower lid.
Once the underlying tissues are accessible, Dr. Stein will reposition and anchor shifted muscles and fat pads and remove excess fat and skin to smooth away under-eye bulges and tighten the skin of the lids. This brightens your eyes, improving your appearance and even your peripheral vision where possible.
Without the weight of excess skin on the upper lid, patients often report a reduction in eye strain and feeling less tired at the end of the day.
Am I a Good Candidate for an Eyelid Lift?
Men and women alike benefit from the results of an eyelid lift at Stein Plastic Surgery. You may be a good candidate for an eyelid lift if:
- You’re affected by drooping upper lids with loose skin, hooding, or shifting tissues
- You have under-eye puffiness
- Your lower lash line is pulled downward, exposing more of the white beneath your iris
Dr. Stein will carefully evaluate your unique eye shape and facial structures during your comprehensive consultation. You’ll also go over your medical history to ensure an eyelid lift is a safe and effective solution for your concerns. Once you’re determined to be a candidate for an eyelid lift, you and Dr. Stein will create your treatment plan and how each technique will address your specific aesthetic concerns.
