What is an eyelid lift?

The eyes are a unique component of the face that deserves to be visible, but sometimes an abundance of lax skin around the eyes can create an aging appearance. Oculofacial plastic surgeon Dr. Shoib Myint uses eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) to lift and tighten the lower or upper eyelids, creating a younger-looking and more awake profile. Countless men and women have undergone this procedure to remove sagging skin above their eyes or to reduce puffy bulges below their eyes, leading to improved functionality and a youthful aesthetic. Whether upper or lower, eyelid surgery helps create a fresh, rejuvenated appearance and can give you subtle yet striking results. If you want to learn more about refreshing your look with eyelid lift surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Myint at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV.

Candidates for an eyelid lift

Upper and lower blepharoplasty are facial cosmetic enhancements sought out by both men and women. During your private consultation, Dr. Myint will explain treatment options based on your areas of concern and goals. In most cases, ideal candidates suffer from excess, hanging skin and folds above their eyes or bloated skin just below their bottom eyelids. These conditions sometimes cause functional and visual impairments that can hinder everyday life, making simple tasks difficult to perform. For a rejuvenated look, eyelid surgery may be the appropriate procedure for you. If you have loose skin that droops on your upper eyelid or bulging bags under your eyes, blepharoplasty can help to correct this and give you a younger appearance.

types of blepharoplasties

Depending on the type and complex nature of the eyelid surgery, some form of anesthesia will be administered. This surgery may be done on the top eyelid by itself, on the bottom portion, or a combination of both eyelids.

  • Upper
    Upper blepharoplasty assists in reducing the folds of skin that droop over the eye to produce a more flattering look. The incision point is often placed along the natural crease to remove loose skin and fatty tissue.
  • Lower
    Lower blepharoplasty is performed to improve puffy skin underneath the lower lid. The incision is placed below the lash line to allow access to remove tissue and fat, and the skin is delicately lifted to allow for a softer, flatter look.

after eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery can take up to three hours depending on whether one or both eyes are being treated. After your procedure, you should plan to rest and avoid strenuous activities for at least several days. You can expect to experience mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising, but this is normal and can typically be eased with a cold compress or pain medication. The outcomes from eyelid surgery can last for many years, but while they are long lasting, the natural aging process does not stop. To help maintain your results, nonsurgical eye lift treatments or revisional eyelid lift surgery can be performed at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery.
