You might not think that your eyes can affect how you feel, but it does. Age brings stretched skin and weakened muscles in the eyelids, which lead to droopy upper lids or bags underneath them for those who suffer from this condition. This often leads to a tired and puffy appearance.
At The Lanfranchi Center, we offer an upper eyelid lift capable of restoring your youthfulness. But how long is recovery from an upper eyelid lift?
What is an Upper Eye Lift?
An upper eyelid lift is a procedure that removes excess skin around the eyes that causes one’s lids to appear hooded or tired with age. This procedure helps you look more awake and refreshed.
It also improves the peripheral sight of patients suffering from significantly hooded eyes.
How Long is Recovery from an Upper Eyelid Lift?
The upper eyelid lift procedure has one of the fastest recovery periods. You can easily recover within 1 week and return to your regular activities.
What Happens During My Upper Eyelid Lift at TLC?
Dr. Lanfranchi will make a tiny incision in the natural crease of your upper eyelids during surgery to reduce any excess skin that could be contributing towards baggy eyes or excessive wrinkles on either side where it folds away from sight.
The Upper Eyelid Lift is a natural procedure that does not change the shape of your eye, so there’s no risk of developing an unnatural appearance.
Benefits of an Upper Eyelid Lift
There are many benefits you can expect to experience from an upper eyelid lift. This includes the following:
- Blepharoplasty can help you look more alert
- It helps you look younger
- The procedure removes excess fat from your upper eyelids
- An upper eyelid lift makes eye makeup application easier and more effective.
Am I a Candidate for an Upper Eyelid Lift?
Ideal candidates for an upper eyelid lift are healthy people who want to remove the saggy skin around their eyes and look years younger and happier.
Most upper blepharoplasty patients only need one treatment in their lifetime. You should also have realistic expectations about the procedure.
During your consultation, we will determine whether or not this is going to be the right treatment for you. If we feel that this sort of treatment is not beneficial, we will make recommendations to help you find something more suitable.
“I’ve been considering eyelid surgery for a while now. My lids were starting to droop, and my right lid was even droopier because I had a non-stop twitch for over a year. I looked at just about every eyelid surgery review on Real Self (thank you all for posting!) and ended up booking a couple of consultations. I decided to go with Dr. Lanfranchi…he was more expensive but he and his staff were so professional and made me feel comfortable. I had the procedure on October 13…I’m still in the healing process but I am so pleased with my progress so far. I think my right eye is still a little swollen, but the bruising is almost completely gone and the scar is healing nicely. Overall, very pleased!” *
