Regain Your Youthful Eyes with an Eyelid Lift
As we age, our eyelids stretch and begin to droop. An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, can bring back your youthful look. A cosmetic eye surgery on either the upper or the lower eyelids, this procedure removes excess skin and fat that may develop as a result of aging, gravity, and sun exposure.
Don’t wait another day. Phoenix Skin Medical, Surgical & Cosmetic Dermatology has multiple locations in Phoenix and Scottsdale.
About the Procedure
During the procedure, Dr. Laris makes a small incision where the natural crease should be in the upper lids, and below the lash line in the lower lids. The excess skin is excised and the extra fat is removed from the upper and lower eyelid.
Care is then taken to remove more tissue from the upper outer corners to give the greatest improvement where the wrinkling in the skin is most abundant. The incisions are closed, leaving a fine scar that is barely visible with time as they are placed within the normal creases and folds of the upper and lower eyelids.
The result is a younger, brighter appearance of the eyes and face and in some cases, widening of visual fields if excessive upper lid skin has partly blocked vision.
Something to Consider
While blepharoplasty will address concerns regarding eyelids, it will not change the position of eyebrows. Since drooping of the eyebrows often takes place at the same time as eyelids age, eyelid surgery is commonly performed with a brow lift. To read more about the brow lift, click here
