What is a Blepharoplasty?
An eyelid lift is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin and muscles in your upper and lower lids. This creates an appearance of rejuvenation; when done correctly, it can remove heavy skin hanging over the eye area and give you a youthful appearance.
Blepharoplasty can also provide long-lasting removal of puffy areas of fat, drooping, and undereye bags. People may have upper or lower blepharoplasty, and some people may have both for maximum eye-opening, lifting, and brightening power.
How Long Does a Blepharoplasty Last?
No facial procedure will last forever, but blepharoplasties will give you many years of positive results before you begin to see the problem areas show signs of sagging again. Over time, tissues continue to lose their underlying support structure and succumb to aging and gravity. Fortunately, more blepharoplasties last at least over 10 years (and sometimes up to 20 years!). For some people, they may last longer, but you should plan on your procedure giving you results that last somewhere in that time frame. Dr. Lanfranchi and his team can restore and refresh your procedure if you would like at this time.
