How Does an Upper Eyelid Lift Work?
Upper eyelid lifts are typically done with a local anesthetic with or without sedation on an outpatient basis. Over the course of about an hour, Dr. Stein meticulously works to reposition fat deposits, tighten underlying muscles, and remove excess skin causing droopiness. Incisions are made within the natural creases of the eyelid keeping visible scarring to a minimum.
Dr. Stein is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon. He uses his advanced surgical skills, techniques, and artistry to produce natural-looking results each and every time.
Am I a Good Candidate For an Upper Eyelid Lift?
An upper blepharoplasty may be worth considering if you’re bothered by a sagging upper lid that is making you look tired, angry, or sad even when you’re not. Upper eyelid lifts can be done for medical reasons as well including a severely drooping eyelid that’s obstructing vision. Dr. Stein will help determine your candidacy for the procedure at the time of your initial consultation.
The ideal candidate for any surgical procedure is a non-smoker who is in otherwise good general health. Patients should have realistic expectations about what an upper eyelid lift can do for them. Prior to treatment, you’ll undergo several routine medical exams to ensure you’re a good fit for the procedure.
