An eye lift, a safe and effective cosmetic procedure, can significantly enhance your appearance by addressing issues like excess skin or droopiness around the eyes. This procedure is suitable for reducing puffiness and sagging of the upper and/or lower eyelids.
While it’s commonly sought after by individuals over fifty, those in their thirties and forties can also benefit from an eye lift.
Ideal Candidates for the Eye Lift
The best candidates for an eye lift are those in good physical and mental health with realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcomes. Understanding what to expect before, during, and after the procedure is crucial, which can be thoroughly discussed during the initial consultation with Dr. Boss.
The Eye Lift Procedure
The eye lift can be tailored to treat either the upper or lower eyelids, or both, depending on your goals. It effectively reduces under-eye bags and upper lid droopiness by removing excess skin. However, it’s important to note that an eye lift won’t eliminate dark circles or correct fine lines and wrinkles.
This procedure should be carried out by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, either in a hospital, an accredited surgery center, or a doctor’s office. It typically lasts between one and three hours, performed under general anesthesia or a local anesthetic with sedation. Eye lifts are generally outpatient procedures, allowing patients to return home shortly after to begin recovery.
