The eyes are a beautiful window to the soul. They draw people in and enable you to gather information about your surroundings. With such an important job, it’s essential to keep them refreshed and rejuvenated. For some patients, as they begin to age, sagging eyelids can become a concern. This condition inhibits a person’s ability to see correctly, which may require professional assistance to improve eyesight. If you find that to be the case, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Hakimi offers eyelid lift surgery to remove excess skin from this delicate part of the body. An eyelid lift not only cosmetically treats the issue but also improves the overall function of your eyes. Discover the benefits of an eyelid lift by reading through our helpful blog. Afterward, we invite you to schedule a consultation with our renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Hakimi.

Am I a good candidate for an eyelid lift?

Also known as upper and lower blepharoplasty, an eyelid lift uses specialized techniques to remove the skin on top of the lower eyelid or below it. With an eyelid lift, we can treat the appearance of aging eyes and a variety of functional concerns, including:

  • droopy eyelids

  • wrinkles around the eyes
  • difficulty seeing because of excess skin on eyes
  • impaired peripheral vision
  • extra skin underneath the eye

During your consultation in Beverly Hills, CA, Dr. Hakimi uses his years of experience and knowledge to ensure your results look natural and beautiful. Compared to other Beverly Hills surgeons, patients also appreciate the time he takes to discuss their needs. Your appointment will include a comprehensive exam, an assessment of your medical history, a review of your cosmetic goals, and an in-depth discussion about your surgical strategy. Once we have designed a treatment plan for you, we schedule your surgery appointment and outline the costs.

What to expect with an eyelid lift?

On the day of your procedure, you receive local anesthesia to keep you comfortable. Based on the severity of your skin sagginess, you may need general anesthesia, but Dr. Hakimi can discuss this more during your consultation. After you’re comfortable, an incision is made on your lid crease, so you can easily conceal the small scar after your surgery. Next, we remove excess skin and close the incision. For the lower eyelid, we make the incision on your lash line, so you cannot see the small scar after it has healed.

Your treatment could last 1 – 2 hours, but this depends on whether you need one or both eyelids addressed. Following your procedure, you should expect some bruising, swelling, and discomfort, which subsides in about a week. It’s important to note that while your results last a long time, the natural aging process continues, so you may need additional procedures later down the road.
