The eyes are the most important facial feature. They convey all of our emotions as well as how we are portrayed by others. Over time the skin around our eyes can start to lose its laxity. Many eyelid concerns such as wrinkles, bags, puffiness, and drooping eyelids occur as we age. To rejuvenate the eyes and get rid of that tired appearance, many people decide to undergo an eyelid lift procedure. At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging our team provides patients with a new look through the eyelid lift procedures that we offer.

What is an Eyelid Lift?

The eyelid lift procedure, formally called Blepharoplasty, helps to improve the appearance of the eyelids. It treats droopy eyelids that impair vision, bags under the eyes, puffy eyelids, as well as excess skin and fine wrinkles around the eyes. Blepharoplasty helps the eyes to look more youthful by restoring the contours and skin laxity in the eyelids. The eyes are often seen as the most important feature, this procedure helps patients feel confident in the look of their eyes.

Blepharoplasty Options

Depending on the state of your skin around the eyes, as well as your aesthetic goals, there are different ways that this procedure can be done. Dr. Vinas and the team at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging will help you know which procedure would be most beneficial. The options are:

  • Upper Eyelid Surgery: The surgeon will mark the natural lines and creases of the lids. The incisions will be made along these natural folds, to help minimize the scar visibility.
  • Lower Eyelid Surgery: This surgery particularly helps with puffiness in the eyelids and the incisions are made along the lower eyelid for minimal visible scarring.

How is an Eyelid Lift Done?

At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging we want to provide our patients with absolute comfort and relaxation with our sedation techniques. When you come in for the procedure, you will be placed under anesthesia to reduce any pain or discomfort as well as minimize any bleeding. Then the small incisions will be placed around the eyelids to remove the excess skin and fat in the eyelids. This helps to smooth out and tighten the skin for a more youthful look.

Eyelid Lift Recovery

At the consultation appointment, patients will receive complete instructions for pre-operative as well as post-operative care. Many patients resume all normal daily activities within two weeks of undergoing their blepharoplasty procedure. Some patients may experience dry eyes as well as swelling, bruising, and redness. It is important to follow all aftercare instructions as well as keep a relationship with Dr. Vinas. By maintaining this relationship, you will be able to maintain the results. Many patients enjoy their renewed look for years to come.
