They say one’s eyes are the window to their soul. Many of our aging patients talk with Dr. John Standefer about having a blepharoplasty, commonly known as an eyelid lift. This procedure is performed to repair or rejuvenate the area surrounding the eyes, improving the overall appearance of the eyelids. The most common reason patients request this procedure is due to loose or sagging skin that creates folds and changes the natural appearance of the eyelids. Fatty deposits build up around the eyes, which causes puffiness. We also have patients who wish to have their “bags” removed. An upper eyelid lift can be performed with other procedures such as a facelift, lower eye lid lift, or mini lift. What are the benefits of an eyelid lift? An eyelid lift can make patients looks less tired and more youthful. The older we get, the more common it is to have that “tired look” due to the puffiness and excess skin. After our patients heal from an eyelid lift, they rave about feeling more confident about their overall appearance. The shape and appearance of the eyes are improved, giving patients their youthful look. Additionally, the excess skin above their eyelids is removed, which in some cases begins to obstruct the patient’s upper field of vision. It also reduces fine lines around the eyes, which contributes to the “tired look.” Learn more about the eyelid lift procedure, and schedule your complimentary consultation today!
