Is an Eyelid Lift Part of a Facelift?

Facelifts are wonderfully customizable procedures, each one unique to the person receiving it. They can also be combined with other procedures to yield dramatic, long-lasting results. Aimed at the mid to lower half of the face (and sometimes the neck), facelifts don’t usually target the eyelids or forehead. But if you’re looking for total facial rejuvenation, an eyelid lift can be added to your procedure to take even more years off of your appearance. At Specialty Aesthetic Surgery, our sub-specialized approach to combined surgery allows the combined expertise of Oculoplastic and Facial Plastic surgeons in one procedure! We are certain that this synergy results in superior outcomes.

What Goes Into A Facelift Procedure?

Much like other surgical procedures, facelifts have changed dramatically over the years– technology has made the process quicker, more precise, and incredibly natural-looking. They’ve also become more customizable to the patient’s aesthetic concerns. State-of-the-art facelifts can address the following concerns with ease:

  • Sagging Skin around the Eyes, Neck and Mouth
  • Jowls
  • Skin Loosening
  • Overall “Tired” Appearance
  • Unwanted Wrinkles and Lines

At Specialty Aesthetic Surgery, we can also adjust your procedure to the severity of your concerns. If you are especially concerned about the appearance around the eyes, we may recommend adding an eyelid lift to your procedure.

Why Add An Eyelid Lift to My Facelift Procedure?

Eyelid lifts can complement facelifts quite nicely. By combining the two procedures, you can experience dramatic results and save lots of recovery time versus undergoing two separate procedures. Blepharoplasty, or the eyelid lift, is a safe and convenient way to restore a more youthful appearance around the eyes. They can combat the following concerns associated with aging:

  • Excess fatty deposits under the eyes, causing a “puffy” appearance
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Loose skin on the upper eyelid, potentially causing problems with vision
  • Oft-times combined with endoscopic brow surgery to address forehead wrinkles
  • Fine wrinkles under the eyelid

Eyelid lifts can tighten sagging skin, restore volume to sunken-in areas, and provide a more “well-rested” appearance. Both upper and lower eyelids can be addressed and results are noticeable after surgery. An eyelid lift may be just what you need to take years off of your appearance and allow for complete facial rejuvenation.

What’s Right For Me?

Sometimes, a facelift alone may not be enough to ensure the best results possible. If you’re considering a facelift and are considering adding another procedure, it’s important to know which procedures are right for you.
