One of the hallmarks of youth is a bright, wide-eyed look, and if your brows are starting to sag or you’re noticing your eyelids starting to droop, your face can easily be giving away its age. Treat yourself to a mini-makeover this season with an Eyelid Lift, otherwise known as blepharoplasty. This simple procedure can be very effective for opening the eyes for a more vibrant appearance, and will help you maintain a long-term youthful look. We can perform this procedure now so you can enjoy results once the holidays roll around.
Freshen Up Your Look with a Blepharoplasty Procedure
Maybe you’ve already tried Botox or undergone a series of skin tightening treatments to enhance the area around your eyes. These treatments can be effective for creating a rejuvenated look, but results are only temporary. If you need something more permanent, eyelid surgery may be a better choice for you. Here are some of the ways a blepharoplasty procedure can freshen up your look:
- Smooth out the skin on the upper eyelids
- Gets rid of under eye bags
- Minimizes or eliminates crepey skin under the eyes
- Makes the eyes appear larger
- May improve vision by opening up the eye area
- Creates a vibrant and fresh-faced appearance
For many patients, an eyelid lift is exactly what they need to take a few years off their appearance. It can either be performed on the upper, lower, or both eyelids. The procedure may involve removing loose skin, eliminating excess fatty tissue, and repositioning the tissues to lift and open up the eye area. Dr. Bachelor uses special techniques to target this very delicate area.
Getting an Eyelid Lift for the Holidays
The recovery period for eyelid lift surgery is usually about seven to 10 days and you will notice most of the puffiness and bruising is resolved within two weeks. We would recommend planning your surgery several weeks before any major holiday events and New Year’s celebrations so that you have enough time to heal. Some patients may experience residual swelling for up to three weeks post-procedure so booking your surgery a month or two in advance will be your best option. We can discuss the best time to book your surgery during your consultation.
