One of the most rejuvenating procedures for the eyes and face is the eyelid lift. When the skin around the eye sags, it creates an aged appearance. Loose skin can result in more lines and wrinkles, as well as hooded upper eyelids and bags under the eyes. If you want to refresh your eyes and remove excess or sagging skin, blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift, may be right for you. Dr. Peter Koltz at pēkomd® is a board certified plastic surgeon who offers eyelid lift surgery at our facility in Toledo, OH.
The eyes are one of the first places to show aging. From crow’s feet or smile lines on the outside of the eyes to loose skin on the lower and upper eyelids, your eyes can give away your age. While a facelift can rejuvenate the lower face and upper neck, it will not change the skin around the eyes. An eyelid lift on the upper, lower or both eyelid areas can smooth away lines, wrinkles and sagging skin for a refreshed appearance.
Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty
An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, can restore a youthful, alert appearance to the eyes. This procedure is often combined with a facelift or brow lift to erase years from the patient’s face. An upper eyelid lift can tighten the skin on the top eyelid, making the eyes look wider and more youthful. Removing excess skin can improve the shape of the eye and allow for better application of makeup.
Lower eyelid lifts can refresh the under-eye area. If you have eye bags or sagging skin under the eyes, a lower blepharoplasty can remove the excess skin and smooth the under-eye area. Firmer, lower eyelids look more energetic and youthful, diminishing the lines and wrinkles that often plague the under-eye area.
Your eyes can say a lot about you. If sagging skin around the eyes are telling the world you are tired or older than you feel, you may want to consider eyelid lift surgery.
