Face Lift & Eyelid Surgery

Face Lift & Eyelid Surgery

The signs of aging show more on the face than anywhere else on the body. Men and women between the age of 40 to 60 who develop loose skin with a sagging face and neck are the best candidates for this surgery. Face Lift surgery improves by removing excess skin, tightening the deeper layers of the face, and re-draping the skin.

A Face Lift can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as Eyelid surgery or Brow Lift. Although signs of aging show more in certain parts of the face, the facial skin sags uniformly and, most of the time, a combination of procedures would be necessary to rejuvenate the face. Scars are usually just above the hairline in the temple area, extending down in a natural line in front of the ear, going behind the earlobe, and into the hair of the scalp.

Eyelid Surgery - Signs of aging in eyelids early. Excessive, drooping skin of the eyelids is a telltale sign of aging. Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) reduces the excess skin and tightens the skin around the eyes giving a more youthful appearance.

Upper Eyelids -Loose skin and puffiness in the upper eyelids may create a tired look and could impair vision. Removal of excess eyelid skin and fat is done with a surgical incision, which is placed on the natural crease of the upper eyelid. The incision extends from the inside corner to slightly beyond the outer corner of the eyelid. Through this incision, excess skin and fat is removed. Because the incision follows the contour of the eyelid, it is camouflaged when healed.

Lower Eyelids - Baggy eyelids causing a tired and sleepy appearance are the most common reason to seek lower eyelid surgery. The incision is usually placed just below the lash margin. Through this incision, excess fat and skin can be removed. The fat is sometimes re-distributed before the skin is drooped over to eliminate puffiness of the eyelids.
