When you think of cosmetic surgery, you probably don’t think of one of our most popular procedures. Many people don’t even know it exists! This procedure is technically called blepharoplasty, but it’s commonly referred to as an eye lift. Over the last 16 years, eye lift surgery has consistently been one of the top five cosmetic procedures in the US. At the offices of Dr. Brantner in East Tennessee, eye lifts are a popular procedure for both men and women. What does the procedure involve and what could it do for you?
In short, an eye lift is the only procedure that effectively addresses puffy or drooping eyelids. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the only way to be sure that you’re a good candidate, but if aging, gravity, or environmental factors have obstructed your vision or given you the appearance of being sleepy or angry all the time, an eyelid lift may be your best choice.
Eye lifts generally work in one of two ways. If the lower lid is causing the issue, the surgeon will remove excess fat from beneath the eye. If the upper lid is causing vision problems or affecting your appearance, loose or hanging skin can be tightened or removed. Tightening the skin and muscles will give a fresh, rejuvenated look to the eyes, which makes the whole face look more youthful.
