Eyelid lifts are among the most popular cosmetic procedures, consistently ranking among the top five surgeries across the nation for their ability to dramatically revitalize your appearance without a lengthy downtime. Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid lifts are considered one of the easier surgeries to undergo. To help you better understand blepharoplasty, here are a few helpful facts about this popular rejuvenation procedure.
Eyelid lifts aren’t really “lifts” at all.
Eyelid lifts can remove excess skin on the upper lids as well as under-eye bags, but they don’t technically “lift” the skin. The key to a successful eyelid lift is careful consideration of your features and a skilled surgeon like Dr. Tanya A. Atagi who understands facial anatomy and can determine a precise and exact surgical plan for achieving optimal, natural-looking rejuvenation.
You don’t need to go under.
An outpatient procedure, upper eyelid lifts can be performed under local anesthesia, resulting in a more rapid recovery. However, lower eyelid lifts do require anesthesia.
Stay open minded.
You may come into our practice thinking you need both an upper and lower eyelid lift and discover, after your consultation, that you only need an upper eyelid lift. Dr. Atagi will closely evaluate your facial features and skin, considering all aspects of your appearance to formulate a surgical plan that meets your unique needs.
It’s all about quality, not quantity.
Less is more with eyelid lifts. In other words, removing too much skin around the eyes can create an unflattering result and alter your entire look. The goal is to look like yourself, only refreshed and renewed. Dr. Atagi offers years of experience, surgical expertise, and an unparalleled eye to create the most flattering, natural-looking eyelid lifts possible.
