Can an Upper Eyelid Lift Really Make You Appear Younger?

Unfortunately, the aging process is one of those things that no matter how much you primp and prune yourself, it will catch up to you eventually. But that doesn’t mean you still can’t look a few years younger by investing in an upper eyelid lift. Believe it or not, cosmetic surgery can shave years off of your appearance if done properly.

However, for those skeptics out there, the professionals from Consultants in Ophthalmic and Facial Plastic Surgery have collected some more in-depth information for you below about how an upper eyelid lift can improve your appearance.

What Exactly is an Upper Eyelid Lift?

Also known as blepharoplasty, an upper eyelid lift is a type of facial cosmetic surgery designed to make you look younger. As we age, the skin surrounding our eyelids begins to droop and can make us appear much older than we actually are, so many opt to invest in facial plastic surgery to correct sagging or droopy eyelids. The goal of the procedure is to enable patients to open their eyes completely and remove the excess skin located around the eyelid that’s built up due to the aging process.

How is the Procedure Performed?

When you have an upper eyelid lift, your cosmetic surgeon begins by removing the excess tissue and skin located on your underlying facial muscle structure. Surgeons will also remove any unwanted tissue from your bone structure and anything impacting the symmetry of your eyebrows. Although the procedure doesn’t do away with crow’s feet or wrinkles, it can make you appear much more rejuvenated.

What’s is the Success Rate?

Often, an upper eyelid lift can shave off nearly 5-10 years from your overall appearance, with the proper care. One of the benefits of the procedure is that it doesn’t change the overall shape of your face: it’s still the same you, only younger and more alert. One important factor to keep in mind after investing in blepharoplasty is that it may take up to a year to see noticeable results.
