Who is a good candidate for eyelid lift?

Patients, young or old, who show signs of aging around the eyelids, are good candidates for an eyelid lift. Some patients might be younger and have more sun-damaged skin, while some other patients who are heavy smokers may have eyelid skin that is quite loose and drapes over the eye. If there is considerable laxity in the skin, and the eyelid’s excess skin is descending over the eyes, the patients can notice it easily by simply looking in the mirror. Patients’ age may range anywhere from the 20s to the 70s.

Eyelid Surgery NYC from Dr. Edmund Kwan

On the lower eyelids, a patient may exhibit puffiness, which is commonly referred to as eyelid bags. Even a 20 year old may have these bags. Such patients can have eyelid surgery by making incisions on the inside. But in case the patient has sagginess of the skin along with the puffiness of the eye, it may require tightening of the skin in addition. This can be done by making incisions from the outside.

Patients who opt to undergo eyelid surgery can expect to receive many benefits from the procedure. The most noticeable of the benefits is that the patient is given a better looking appearance through an aesthetically enhanced eye area. Through a successfully performed blepharoplasty procedure, excess skin on a patient’s upper eyelid can be taken off so that nothing covers the natural fold of the eye. Moreover, puffiness in a patient’s upper eyelid can be taken care of as well. As a result, the tired and worn out look that patients have can be taken away.

Apart from the physical benefits, eyelid surgery has the ability to help patients to feel much better about themselves and the way they look. With an improved facial appearance, amazing amounts of self-confidence, happiness and self-esteem creeps back into a person’s life. An eyelid surgery helps to make that change in a patient’s life. The ideal and successful eyelid surgery can do a great deal in making a patient’s eyes look much younger and more visible.

What our patients say


I went to Dr. Kwan to get rid of my sagging jowls. When I consulted with him, he was sincere and honest to say that possibly we could get better results. When all was said and done, I feel and look 10 years younger. I love what he did. I had no complications. I appreciated his honesty, sincerity and certainly his fine work.
I would go back to him in a flash!!!
