If people often tell you that you look tired even though you feel well-rested and refreshed, one of the reasons why they may have this impression is because you have droopy eyelids. Droopy eyelids can cause you to look tired and older than you really are. Many individuals have turned to an eyelid lift procedure to correct this problem. It may also help them to improve their vision.
The Best Candidates for Eyelid Lift Surgery
In order for you to qualify for an eyelid lift, you must be in good health. Our physicians will thoroughly examine your eyelids and your full medical history and then help you to determine if eyelid surgery is right for you. Most individuals who get this procedure are at least 35 years of age. However, you may qualify for this surgery if you are under 35 years of age and droopy eyelids are causing problems with your vision or if droopy eyelids run in your family.
It is also important for you to have realistic expectations. An eyelid lift can help you to look more refreshed, but it will not completely alter your facial structure or cause your appearance to drastically change. You need to discuss your aesthetic goals with our board-certified surgeon to get a good understanding of what kind of results you can enjoy.
Getting Ready for Eyelid Surgery
You should know that you will need some downtime after your eyelid lift to recover. Most individuals need a few days for their eyes to heal. Our doctor can help you decide what steps to take to ensure optimal healing.
During the actual eyelid lift procedure, excess fat and skin are removed. Dr. Chernoff utilizes a special laser technique during the surgery in order to reduce the likelihood of negative side effects and to minimize the overall recovery time. The laser is also used to exfoliate the eyelids with the intention of promoting collagen production.
