Aging causes the weakening of tissues, which has a pronounced effect on the eye area. Drooping upper eyelid tissue can obscure your natural eye crease and impair your vision. Bulging tissue in the upper eyelids can cause your eyes to appear puffy. Excess, sagging skin can lead to a chronically fatigued expression.

Frequently Asked Questions
What type of anesthesia will be used during my surgery?
Eyelid surgery can be performed using local anesthesia, which ensures a pain-free procedure without the negative effects of general anesthesia.
How will I feel following my recovery?
You will experience some minor bruising and swelling following your surgery. Some patients will have mild discomfort as a result of the skin tightening. Medication will be provided to control any associated pain.
How soon after my surgery will I be able to resume my regular activities?
Most patients feel good enough the day after their surgery to do minor chores and drive. Sunglasses can be worn to hide your healing eyes.
Will I have any visible scarring?
Most people don’t develop any visible scarring because all incisions are made within the natural lines and creases of the eyelids. However, scarring is dependent on your body’s healing process, and some patients may develop scarring that is likely to fade over time.
How long will my results last?
An eyelid lift is designed to provide patients with a long-term solution to their aging eyes. Most patients maintain results for years following their surgery.
