Tired-looking eyes can negatively impact your self-image, making you feel as though you look older than you are. If you have noticed hooding or a puffy look to your eyelids or have hindered vision because of your eyelids, you may be dealing with excess skin. An upper eyelid lift could be the solution to achieving a rejuvenated appearance!
What is a TLC Upper Eyelid Lift?
As the skin ages, it begins to lose its natural elasticity, and the muscles in the eyelid begin to weaken, which leads to droopy eyelids. An upper eyelid lift, also known as upper blepharoplasty, is a procedure that removes excess skin around the eyes resulting in a refreshed and alert appearance.
This procedure is a favorite of Dr. Lanfranchi’s and is one of our most popular treatments!
What are the Benefits of an Upper Eyelid Lift?
The benefits of an upper eyelid lift are not just cosmetic. Many patients with severe hooding of the eyelids express their struggle with impacted vision, which an upper eyelid lift can improve. The benefits of an upper eyelid lift are long-lasting, and many patients will only need one procedure in their life! An upper eyelid lift does not alter your eye’s natural shape, which will prevent the development of an unnatural appearance.
The benefits of an upper eyelid can lift include:
- A more alert appearance
- A more youthful look
- Reduced or eliminated vision issues
- Easier and more effective makeup application
What is Recovery From An Upper Eyelid Lift Like?
The upper eyelid lift treatment has one of the shortest and easiest recovery periods, with an initial recovery time as quick as just a few days to a week! Full recovery can take up to a few months.
Dr. Lanfranchi will give you specific instructions for your post-treatment care. You may experience swelling in the treatment area that should subside after about a week or two. Please note you will not be able to wear contact lenses for a short time after treatment. Practice proper sun protection and follow Dr. Lanfranchi’s post-treatment instructions.
Am I A Candidate for An Upper Eyelid Lift?
A good candidate for an upper eyelid lift is an individual in good physical and mental health. If you would like to appear more youthful and alert, an upper eye lift may be right for you! You can book an in-person consultation with Dr. Lanfranchi to learn more about your candidacy.
Stellar Service from Start to Finish
Two months ago I had a lower lifestyle facial lift. I was apprehensive, but it was well worth the effort and expense. Dr. Lanfranchi and his entire staff were kind, caring and very professional, from the first meeting to the follow up appointments.
The procedure is done under a local, not general anesthetic, and it was easy. I healed quickly and am very satisfied with the results.
His fee was very reasonable. Any further facial work I want done, I will be sure to come back here.
