The eyes are the window to a person’s soul, and when they show signs of aging, it can make them look haggard all the time. Raleigh’s leading plastic surgeon, Dr. Adam Stein, has been helping people find their youthful spirit again with his effective treatments for eye rejuvenation.
Dr. Stein offers upper eyelid lifts, one of the most effective eye rejuvenation procedures that can make you look younger and refreshed. But how long does it take to recover from an upper eyelid lift?
What is an Upper Eyelid Lift?
An upper eyelid lift is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin around the eyes to make you look more awake and refreshed. It also improves the peripheral sight for patients suffering from significantly hooded lids.
An upper eyelid lift is also called blepharoplasty. It is an ideal treatment for droopy eyelids.
How Long is Recovery from an Upper Eyelid Lift?
You can recover from an upper eyelid lift within a few days. Most of our upper eyelid lift patients return to work within a week. It is often advisable to wait for 2 weeks before resuming strenuous activities.
How Does an Upper Eyelid Lift Work?
Dr. Stein performs eyelid lifts on an outpatient basis with or without sedation, and they typically last about one hour in duration.
During the procedure, Dr. Stein will reposition the fat deposits causing droopiness and tighten the underlying muscles, and remove excess skin causing droopiness. He makes incisions within natural creases to keep scarring minimal.
After your upper eyelid lift, you will notice an improvement in the appearance of your eyes.

- It helps make your eyes look more alert
