Our eyes are one of the first areas of our body to give away our true age.
To counteract the visible signs of aging, there is the minimally-invasive eyelid lift or blepharoplasty.
This procedure is designed to improve the appearance of the eye by lifting the lid allowing you to appear more rested and alert. The procedure can enhance your upper eyelid, lower eyelid or both, depending on your preference.
As with any procedure, it’s always best to know the steps that will be taken to improve your look, as well as any potential risks.

The procedure will include:

  • Making incisions in areas that will be masked by natural crease lines.
  • Initial results that will include some bruising and swelling, but will diminish over time to create your intended end-result.
  • Recovery time that will take up to several weeks while it can take up to a year for incision lines to completely disappear.

Some conditions will be corrected permanently, but as we continue to age, there will be some change over the years. Using sun protection will help maintain desired results.
