What Should You Expect From an Eyelid Lift?
An eyelid lift is an anti-aging cosmetic procedure known as blepharoplasty that can open up the eyes and restore a youthful appearance to the eye area. You can expect a customized surgical treatment plan and an excellent surgical outcome when you schedule and undergo this procedure.
The goal of an eyelid lift is to restore a youthful appearance to your eye area without altering the integrity of your appearance or making you look like a different person. When you undergo this procedure at New England Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center, you can expect excellent results.
Youthful Looking Eyes
One of the primary purposes of blepharoplasty is to restore a youthful appearance to the eye area. During the procedure, excess skin and fat will be removed from the upper or lower eye area as needed per each treatment patient’s treatment plan.
In some cases, drooping upper eyelids can significantly impede vision. For those with severe skin laxity around the eye area, this condition can negatively impact quality of life. Patients whose drooping eyelids have affected their vision can expect clearer and restored vision after undergoing this procedure, in addition to more youthful-looking eyes.
When you undergo blepharoplasty at New England Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center, you can expect the most natural-looking results. We customize each surgical plan to meet the needs of each of our patients.
When we perform the eyelid lift, we do so to restore the eye area to make you look more like your younger self again, not like a younger, different person. One thing you can count on after your procedure is that you’ll achieve the most natural-looking results.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to eliminate excess fat, tissue, and skin from the eye area. During the procedure, the surgeon removes excess skin that’s causing drooping eyelids or eyebags and tightens the surrounding area to restore a youthful appearance.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Patients who aren’t happy with the appearance of their eye area make good candidates for blepharoplasty. Typically, patients over the age of 35 schedule this procedure, but we can also customize it for patients with loose skin due to genetic predisposition.
The aging process causes the skin to weaken and droop, which can impede vision, impact confidence, and negatively affect appearance. This procedure is designed for patients who want to eliminate excess tissue, skin, or fat to look, see, and feel their best.
Determining Your Treatment Eligibility
If you’re unsure whether you’re a candidate for eyelid surgery, we can schedule an initial consultation to learn more about your concerns, evaluate your eye area, and determine your eligibility for this procedure. The best treatment candidates are those in good health, who have a positive outlook on the procedure, and realistic expectations about their results. Patients should also be non-smokers without any medical conditions that could interfere with the healing process.
During your consultation, you’ll meet with Dr. Lazor and our staff to discuss any medical conditions, your health history, and the procedure details. You’ll undergo a physical exam, and eyelid measurements will be taken during the consultation process. If you don’t qualify for this procedure, we can make alternative treatment recommendations so that you can still achieve your desired results.
What Should I Expect From the Procedure?
During your procedure, our surgeon will remove any extra skin, muscle, and fatty tissue around the eye area. Dr. Lazor has extensive skill and experience in performing this procedure to meet the needs of each patient. Once it’s over, you’ll be moved into recovery.
What Kind of Recovery Should I Expect?
Patients who undergo eyelid surgery will need to use lubricating ointment to protect their eyes and prevent them from becoming overly dry. A week after your procedure, the stitches will be removed, and you’ll continue to experience improved results as the healing process progresses. We can provide you with post-care directives so that you know how to reduce swelling and discomfort and promote a quick and efficient recovery.
When Will I See the Results?
After you undergo this procedure and your eyelids begin to heal, you’ll see improvements in your appearance within the first few weeks. You’ll no longer have eyebags or excess skin and wrinkles but instead will look more youthful and awake. We can give you more details about what type of results you can expect at your initial consultation.
