The eyes can have a dramatic impact on your appearance. Beautiful eyes can be show stoppers, but when the skin on the eyelids sag, it can make you look old and tired. Both the upper and lower eyelids have delicate skin that can stretch and droop with age. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, can rejuvenate the eyes for a more youthful, energetic appearance. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio is a board-certified plastic surgeon who can perform an intricate eyelid lift at Back Bay Plastic Surgery in Boston, MA.
The lower eyelid has a giant impact on your appearance. When there are bags under your eyes, you look exhausted. Men and women of all ages can have sagging skin or eye bags under the eyes, but it is more common in older individuals. When the fat and skin in the lower eyelids sag, it creates permanent bags that age your face. A lower blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, is used to remove excess skin or fat and tighten the area under the eyes. The incisions are carefully hidden inside the inner eyelid or along the eyelash line for a discreet appearance.
Upper Eyelid Lift Surgery
The upper eyelids are prone to sagging skin that can create a droopy appearance to the eyes. The loose skin can make the eyes look tired and even can cause vision issues. Upper blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, is used to remove excess skin and tighten the eyelid. The incision is hidden along the crease of the eyelid or along the lash line to discreetly perform the eyelid lift. This procedure can open up the eyes and create a more youthful and invigorated eye and face appearance.
Patients can undergo either a lower or upper blepharoplasty, but many choose to have both eyelids lifted at the same time to create a refreshed eye appearance. Some swelling and bruising are expected after the procedure, but most patients recover nicely in 1-2 weeks by following our post-surgery instructions.
