Dr. Chernoff’s Exclusive Upper & Lower Laser Eyelid Lift Technique

Dr. Greg Chernoff performs his proprietary laser technique for both upper and lower eyelids at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Indianapolis, IN.

As we age, the skin around our eyelids loses elasticity, causing a sagging and hooded appearance. This can lead to the disappearance of a distinct eyelid crease and the development of undereye bags. This contributes to a tired and aged look. Dr. Chernoff can help!

His groundbreaking laser technique restores your eyes to a more youthful and rested appearance.

Dr. Chernoff’s laser eyelid lift is a surgical procedure that offers superior results compared to traditional eyelid surgery.  Dr. Chernoff utilizes a laser to make the incisions.  The use of the laser reduces bruising, swelling, and recovery time. Men and women both can achieve rested, beautiful eyes.

Who Is A Candidate For A Laser Eyelid Lift?

If you are bothered by sagging eyelids and undereye bags, you may be a candidate for a laser eyelid lift. Eyelid surgery otherwise known as a blepharoplasty, refreshes the appearance of both upper and lower eyes for those concerned about excess skin and puffiness.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Chernoff will examine your eyelids to determine the severity and laxity of your skin. Some patients have hanging skin that goes over their lids. Others have large bags and excess fat under the eyes. Based on your specific concerns, we will customize a plan that will be tailored to address your specific needs.

What Is Eyelid Surgery And How Is it Performed?

Eyelid surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure addressing droopy upper eyelids and undereye bags. Dr. Chernoff has spent over 20 years developing his innovative laser eyelid lift technology. With over 10,000 successful laser eyelid lifts performed, he is considered an expert in the field of eyelid surgery.

Upper and lower eyelid surgery is an excellent procedure to address:

  • • Sagging skin along the natural contour of the upper eyelid (Sometimes impairing vision)
  • Excess skin on the lower eyelid
  • Under-eye bags and puffiness
  • Fine wrinkles

A blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at removing excess fat and skin that accumulates on both upper and lower eyelids due to aging. Dr. Chernoff utilizes his proprietary laser technique for precision and minimal scarring. Incisions for the upper eyelids are discreetly placed along the natural eyelid crease, while those for under-eye bags are made inside the lower eyelid, leaving no visible scarring once healed. Following a blepharoplasty, Dr. Chernoff may utilize laser exfoliation to stimulate collagen growth, shrink residual skin, and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.

Dr. Chernoff artistically sculpts both upper and lower eyelids to achieve an aesthetically pleasing and balanced appearance. In cases where drooping upper eyelids result from relaxed eyebrow and forehead skin, Dr. Chernoff may also recommend an endoscopic eyebrow lift. Incisions for that procedure are strategically hidden behind the hairline.

Individuals in good overall health and who are non-smokers make ideal candidates for this procedure. Laser eyelid lift surgery is effective and typically involves less downtime compared to traditional eyelid surgery.

Preparing for Surgery

Prior to any surgical procedure, Dr. Chernoff recommends that all our patients read our "Patient Guide for Plastic Surgery". The guide explains important points that all patients should think about as they are considering a surgical procedure.

What Is The Laser Eyelid Lift Surgical Recovery Process?

Recovery time for laser eyelid surgery varies depending upon the patient. In a simple upper eyelid lift, with skin and only mild amounts of fat being addressed, the recovery is relatively quick. You will feel well in a few days, but you can expect some bruising and discoloration. The more skin and tissue that needs to be addressed, the longer the recovery. In almost all cases, patients recover in about one week or less.

Following your procedure, Dr. Chernoff and our dedicated team of recovery and after care nurses will provide you with specific instructions regarding the best way to care for your eyes. We prioritize fast healing while reducing the potential for infection. We will see you every day after your blepharoplasty procedure to ensure you are healing well. We help you through every step of the recovery process.

What Results Can You Expect From A Laser Eyelid Lift?

Results are long-lasting, with most patients achieving their desired outcomes in one treatment session. Dr. Chernoff's precision and expertise with his laser technique ensure superior cosmetic results and a more youthful appearance. Every case is different, but generally, you will enjoy the results of your laser eyelid lift for many years to come! Dr. Chernoff will discuss your desired outcomes with you and help you to better understand the results that you can expect from your eyelid lift.
