Eye Lift Surgery Restores Your Youthful Look

The natural processes of aging can cause the skin or the eyelid and around the eye to lose elasticity. For most people this causes the eyelids to slowly droop, and can also cause fatty deposits to develop under your eyes. Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as an eyelift, is designed to help lift the skin above your eyelid and also remove excess fatty deposits, giving your eyes a more youthful look.

An eyelift can be performed on outpatient basis. In most cases you will need to be fully sedated, so you will need a friend or family member to drive you and help out at home for a day or two while you’re getting back on your feet.

During the procedure the cosmetic surgeon makes an incision above each that. The incision follows the natural creases of your eye, which hides any later signs of scarring.

They will then make an incision in the lower eyelid along a similar crease. The unwanted fatty deposits are then removed and some of the contours under the eye are adjusted, giving you back a youthful look around your eyes.

It’s natural for there to be a little swelling and bruising in the area, that will subside with time. Your surgeon might also recommend a chemical or laser peel to reduce any natural discoloration in your lower eyelid, depending on your skin tone.
