Eye Lid Surgery (Lid Lift)
Eyelifts in Bel Air, MD
Do you want to know more about eyelifts in Bel Air, MD? Make an appointment to see Dr. Robertson, a board-certified surgeon with extensive experience in eyelid surgery and a reputation for skilled, compassionate care.
Also known as blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, an eyelift reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids. This rejuvenates the appearance of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert. Eyelifts are usually done for cosmetic reasons, but are also an effective way to improve sight in older people whose sagging upper eyelids impede their vision.
As skin ages, it gradually loses its elasticity. Patients who have eyelifts in Bel Air, MD may want to correct excess skin that has collected on their upper and lower eyelids, as well as the resulting wrinkles and bulges. On the upper eyelids, an extra fold of skin can hang over the eyelashes. The fat that cushions the eyeball from the skull can also cause bulges in the upper and lower eyelids.
It’s important to remember that eyelift surgery alone won’t eliminate dark under eye circles, crow’s feet, or other facial wrinkles. For a comprehensive facial rejuvenation, eyelift surgery can be performed in conjunction with treatments such as laser resurfacing, filler injections, and forehead lifts.
The best candidates for eyelifts in Bel Air, MD are healthy, non-smoking individuals who don’t have medical conditions that could impair healing. They should also have a positive outlook and specific, achievable goals for their surgery. Most people who have eyelid surgery are 35 years or older. However, if baggy eyelids or droopy eyelids run in your family, you may decide to have the surgery done sooner.
Upper eyelid surgery can last at least five to seven years. Lower eyelid surgery rarely needs to be repeated. Of course, your eyes will still age after the procedure. If your lids sag again, a forehead lift rather than another eye lift is often the proper procedure.
Eyelifts in Bel Air, MD are safe, effective procedures for correcting sagging skin on the upper eyelids, and for bulging fat around the lower eyelids. An eyelift can rejuvenate your appearance, make you look younger, and give you greater confidence. However, it may not result in your ideal look or alter your facial structure.
