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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Congratulations! When it comes to first-time pregnancy, there are plenty of lifestyle adjustments to make, physical changes to get acquainted with and extremely exciting milestones ahead for both you and your future baby! Thankfully, all things considered, you can comfortably scratch “having breast implants” from any list of concerns or at least two reasons: Getting pregnant, giving birth, and breastfeeding with breast implants are all entirely possible and all considered totally safe for both the baby and the mother. Secondly, if any changes were to occur that affected the cosmetic appearance of the breasts or the implants, they are quickly correctable after breastfeeding, at the earliest possible opportunity. These changes might include changes to the position of the implants in relation to the now-developed breasts, or to the firmness of your breasts. In most cases, the implants.


Breast augmentation patients planning to bear children often wonder if pregnancy will affect or even damage their implants. While pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding do cause the body to undergo tremendous natural shifts, every woman will experience these changes differently, and the changes often differ even from pregnancy to pregnancy for the same mother. Swelling of the breasts during pregnancy is natural, as is the volume loss that occurs after breastfeeding. For some, these fluctuations are dramatic while for others they are subtle.

In either case, the breast implants are not damaged and their structure and integrity hold throughout this exciting and life-changing time. The breasts play a central role in the transformative biological process of giving birth and as they pass through the many phases involved, the implants themselves are not affected or compromised.
