What Is an Eyelid Lift?

An eyelid lift, also known as a blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can be performed to alter the appearance of either the upper or lower eyelids. Many people choose this surgery to remove troublesome bags, wrinkles, and sagging skin to maintain a youthful and fresh appearance. The procedure yields results that can last, on average, between 5-8 years.

Benefits of an Eyelid Lift

Eyelid lifts can reduce sagging and puffiness in both your lower and upper lids and give your eyes a more youthful appearance. Eyelid lifts also have the potential to improve vision by removing excess skin that obstructs line of sight

How Is an Eyelid Lift Performed in Santa Clarita?

An eyelid lift begins with local anesthesia to numb the area being worked on. Dr. Hu will then make an incision along the crease of your eyelid or along your lower lash line, depending on which area he is tightening. Excess skin and/or fat is then removed. When tightening the lower eyelids, fat may not be removed but instead be redistributed to present a more even appearance and reduce puffiness.

Once the appropriate amount of tissue has been removed, Dr. Hu will then close the incisions. Although they are noticeable initially, there will be no visible scars once they have healed. After surgery, you will be monitored until the effects of the anesthesia wear off, which can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. You will be released once Dr. Hu is confident there are no complications, provided you have someone available to drive you home.
