How Does an Eyelid Lift Work?
An eyelid lift, also called blepharoplasty, is a procedure where small changes can result in dramatic improvement to your appearance and how others perceive you. As time and age accumulate, the delicate tissues around the eyes can puff up and sag, hooding the eyes and creating bags beneath them. Dr. Stein makes small incisions in the creases of the eyes to reposition fat pads that have shifted and remove excess skin. The result is a more alert, bright eyed appearance with fewer wrinkles, so you look refreshed and youthful.
Eyelid Lift Benefits
Relieve eye fatigue.
Believe it or not, the shifting of tissues around your eyes can increase the pressure on them. Some patients who’ve undergone an eyelid lift report feeling less tired at the end of a workday, without the weight of their upper lids pressing down. Eye strain can be alleviated, and in some cases where sagging skin is severe, peripheral vision can even be restored.
Look as refreshed as you feel.
Under eye bags can contribute to a stressed out, haggard appearance when you don’t feel tired or overwhelmed. It can give the wrong impression to colleagues and loved ones, who may assume something’s wrong. By removing sagging skin and bags, you can brighten your eyes and show people you’ve got your responsibilities covered.
Restore a youthful eye shape.
The skin around the eyes is so delicate it doesn’t take much for it to appear aged. As time goes on, collagen—the skin’s most vital fibrous support network—weakens and skin sags. By removing excess skin and tightening that which remains, Dr. Stein can revive your youthful appearance and turn back the clock by years.
