As one of your most expressive features, your eyes are one of the first things people notice about you. Unfortunately, they’re often subjected to unwanted changes caused by time and age. If wrinkles and sagging skin are affecting your eyes, an eyelid lift may be the solution to regain a youthful look.
What is an Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)?
Also known as blepharoplasty, an eyelid lift is a cosmetic surgery that treats signs of aging around the eyes. The inevitable effects of time and gravity often lead to wrinkles, under-eye bags, and drooping or “hooded” eyelids that contribute to an aged, tired expression.
Depending on your aesthetic goals, Dr. Stile can either perform an upper eyelid lift, a lower eyelid lift, or both. An upper eyelid lift will address issues such as excess, sagging skin above the eyes and “hooding,” while a lower eyelid lift can improve under-eye bags or hollows.
Blepharoplasty tightens and lifts the skin around your eyes for a smoother, brighter appearance. Fat pads are also removed or repositioned to reduce puffiness or dark circles under the eyes.
