What Is an Eyelid Lift?

An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves removing or altering excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. The procedure reduces sagging, puffiness, wrinkles and age lines around the eyes. It can also improve vision by allowing more light to enter the eye. A complementary procedure to an eyelid lift is to also inquire if a brow lift procedure will further enhance your eyes.

What is a Male Eyelid Lift?

Benefits of Eyelid Lift Surgery

Male blepharoplasty can help improve signs of aging around the eyes and create a more alert, vibrant look. While it can provide superb results on its own, it can also be combined with other facial procedures like a minimally invasive brow lift for a dramatic but natural effect. Additional benefits of an eyelid lift include:

  • Restores the natural contour of the upper eyelid
  • Corrects droopiness of the lower eyelids
  • Improved peripheral vision
  • Improved self-confidence
  • Minimally-invasive
  • Quick recovery

Eyelid Lift Procedure

Our Eyelid Lift procedure includes minimal incisions, leaves no visible scars and is relatively painless. Dr. Ambay, our triple board-certified blepharoplasty surgeon, conceals the incision in the natural crease of the upper eyelid or on the lash line of the lower eyelid. Our procedure lasts about two hours and patients are typically released to go home immediately after. Allow yourself a week of rest following the surgery.

Eyelid Lift Recovery

After undergoing eyelid lift surgery, you should expect a period of recovery to be necessary before you can enjoy the full benefits of the procedure. Most people return to their normal daily activities within a week after their eyelid lift procedure. You must adhere to Dr. Ambay’s recovery instructions to ensure the best results. These instructions may include:

  • Avoiding strenuous exercise such as running or weight lifting for at least two weeks
  • Keep your head elevated even when sleeping
  • Don’t rub or massage your eyelids

Who Is a Good Candidate?

A good candidate for an eyelid lift surgery would be someone who is seeking to reduce the signs of aging in their eyes and overall facial appearance. This could include those with puffiness or bags under the eyes, drooping upper lids, or excessive wrinkles in the area. Additionally, patients with shallow eye contours may also benefit from an eyelid lift. During your consultation, Dr. Ambay will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your medical history and discuss your goals and expectations for treatment to determine whether you are a good candidate for male eyelid lift surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty costs can vary significantly. Costs are usually determined based on your desired outcome, the qualification, experience and expertise of your surgeon, their facilities, and your aftercare needs. Dr. Ambay will discuss eyelid surgery costs with you in consultation.

How can a minimally invasive brow lift help rejuvenate my eyes?

Did you know that more than 60% of people who need eyelid lifts also need a minimally invasive brow lift? The brows frame the eyes so low set brows make the eyes look smaller and tired. More importantly, if the brow position is left unrecognized and just skin removal is undertaken, then complications such as dry eyes and inability to close the eyes can occur. A natural rejuvenation with Dr. Ambay occurs because he understands and will explain to you how the aging facial features affect the eyes.

Is eyelid surgery covered by insurance?

Generally the answer is no. Some insurance compnaies do cover upper eyelid skin removal only, so it’s best to check with your insurance company. We also have financing options available.

How long does it take to recover from eyelid surgery?

Generally speaking, recovery time after an eyelid lift can take between a week to two. After a few days, you should feel comfortable enough to return to work or normal routines.

What are the eyelid lift surgery risks?

Possible risks associated with this surgery include bleeding and infection, adverse reaction to anesthesia, temporary or permanent vision problems or dry eyes. Other complications could include asymmetrical results, unsatisfactory scarring or unsatisfying aesthetic outcome due to poor judgment or technique. These associated risks are, however, significantly reduced when working with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon.
