An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is a rather simple cosmetic procedure that corrects sagging and folding of the upper and/or lower eyelids. This drooping is common among mature adults in Seattle and is usually caused by excess fatty tissue pulled downward by gravity. It can make you look old and tired, inattentive, and even annoyed. It’s easily corrected, but we encourage you to get all of the information possible before deciding to have this procedure performed.
Our clients come to us from all over Seattle and the Puget Sound region. We are specialists in blepharoplasty, and we will give you realistic outcome expectations during your consultation with us. It may be time to freshen up your appearance and improve your overall sense of well-being, and an eyelid lift may be the perfect way to do so.
What an Eyelid Lift Can Correct
The ideal candidate will be a mature adult who is in overall good health. Unless there is a serious eye condition that warrants more aggressive treatment, an eyelid lift can yield long-lasting results. The procedure can correct loose or sagging skin on the upper and/or lower lid, get rid of dark skin bags, smooth away wrinkles on the lower lid, and improve the contour lines of the eyes. Some of our clients come to us after noticing that creases and folds made their eyes look unbalanced, something that negatively impacted their overall facial features. An eyelid lift can correct this problem as well.
How We Perform an Eyelid Lift
During a consultation in the Seattle area, we will examine the eyes closely to determine if loose, baggy skin and/or fat is the culprit. We may suggest a blepharoplasty procedure that will remove the excess skin and fat and then tighten the remaining eyelid skin. The details of each procedure vary from patient to patient.
We will give the client complete instructions on post-treatment care. A follow-up visit may be necessary. In the weeks after the procedure is completed, visual improvement in the eyelid skin will be apparent. The bags and folds are gone, the skin surface is more taut, and the eyes look much more attentive and youthful.
An eyelid lift is a very simple procedure that can significantly improve your overall appearance and make you look younger.
