Looking your best is an important part of being happy and successful. In the past few decades, there has also been a large emphasis placed on maintaining a youthful appearance. Unfortunately, the area around the eyes is one of the first places to start showing the physical signs of aging. Both under-eye bags and sagging upper eyelids can create heavy, tired, and old looking eyes. The good news is that eyelifts are a common, minor cosmetic procedure that can correct these issues and leave the face looking younger and more refreshed.
Eyelift surgery is an excellent way to correct droopy, tired eyes. It addresses these problems by eliminating extra skin and removing small pockets of fat from either the upper or lower eyelids. Eyelifts can be done alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures such as a brow lift or dermal fillers.
Not all patients are candidates for eyelifts. The prime candidates will be those who need to have eye bags removed, want to reduce puffy eyelids, or those with obstructed vision due to excess fat and skin. Candidates should be in good physical and mental health, and at least 18 years old. It’s also important that patients are realistic about the results that can be achieved with eyelid surgery. During your consultation with Dr. Kwan, expectations and potential results will be discussed at length.
There are certain eye conditions that can keep prohibit patients from undergoing an eyelift. Those who have been diagnosed with glaucoma or dry eye are at risk for aggravation of the condition with eyelid surgery. Patients with hyperthyroidism, heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes may also be excluded from the surgery.
If you feel that you might benefit from eyelift surgery, your first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kwan. During this visit, Dr. Kwan will thoroughly review your medical history to determine if you are a candidate. Then, expectations, results, costs, and recovery will be discussed at length.
Come see why so many patients are pleased with the dramatically improved appearance they receive after eyelift surgery. If you are ready to look younger and more alert, schedule a consultation with your physician today. (201) 947 3636
