Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)

As we age, we may notice concerns with the appearance of the eyelids. The natural process of aging can cause the eyelids to droop and bags to form under the eyes. When patients want to correct these issues, they are encouraged to speak with Dr. M. Christine Lee of Walnut Creek, CA about an eye lift procedure.

Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), Walnut Creek

What is an eye lift?

An eye lift is a method of surgical correction for the upper or lower eyelid. The procedure is performed to help patients look younger and to address problems with excess or sagging skin in the area that may be impacting the patient’s appearance and ability to see. There are different types of eyelid surgery services available, but the blepharoplasty is the most popular and most effective at addressing problems that may be anywhere from mild to severe.

Can patients achieve an eyelid lift without surgery?

While there are several treatments available at The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute that can be used to address sagging skin or “skin laxity,” these are not appropriate for the eye area. Therefore, our team finds that surgical intervention is the only way to achieve the desired results. Patients will find that eyelid lift procedures are relatively minor when compared to other more aggressive surgical corrections. The procedure has many benefits, as it is:

  • Safe
  • Effective
  • Affordable
  • Minimally invasive

What can I expect for eyelid surgery recovery?

Before patients undergo their procedure, Dr. M. Christine Lee will discuss with individuals what they can expect when it comes to the recovery and healing process. Most patients will need to schedule time off work and social activities as they heal and are encouraged to visit the doctor for necessary follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process and ensure results have been achieved.
