Excess skin and fat on the eyelids can detract from a vital, fresh appearance and can also affect your vision. Our board-certified plastic surgeons can perform an upper and lower eyelid lift to help revitalize your appearance and enhance your natural beauty.

What is Upper and Lower Eyelid Lift?
They say your eyes are the windows to your soul, but they are also the first place to show signs of aging. With time, the upper and lower eyelids may droop, causing excess creasing, bulging, and wrinkles. An eyelid lift can diminish lines and wrinkles, and smooth the eye for a more youthful, radiant appearance.
Upper and lower eyelid lift, also referred to as blepharoplasty, removes extra skin, fat, and tissue to give the eye a more refreshed look. Our surgeons will examine your eyes and decide whether you’d benefit from an upper or lower lift or a combination of both. Blepharoplasty can also improve vision, as sagging eyelids can often cause visual discomfort.
Eyelift lifts require special skills, as the skin around the eyes is very delicate. Our board-certified plastic surgeons will use their surgical artistry to give you visible improvements and beautiful, natural results. Let us help you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside!
What are the Benefits?
After an upper and lower eyelid lift at Polyclinic Plastic Surgery, you can expect:
- A reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
- Smoother, more “awake” eyes
- A rejuvenated appearance
- Improved vision
- Heightened self-confidence
- Beautiful, natural results
Who is the Ideal Candidate?
Patients seeking eyelid surgery often experience excess skin around the eyes and a permanently “tired” appearance. The ideal candidate is in good health, with no serious medical problems, is of stable weight, and is a non-smoker. It is also important to approach surgery with realistic expectations.
What Can I Expect from Recovery?
Immediately after eyelid surgery, you will likely experience swelling and bruising of the eyelids. Eyes may be dry or itchy, but your surgeon will prescribe eye drops to ease discomfort, along with pain medication.
Sutures are typically removed within 5-7 days after surgery, at which time you may return to daily activity. The swelling will continue to go down as you heal, with full results often seen after four to six weeks. Once healed, scars will be well hidden in the eyelid crease and lash line.
