Why An Eyelid Lift Can Have Huge Returns For Little Investment
If you’re like many men and women, the first thing that comes to mind when you think of anti-aging plastic surgery is the facelift. In the last several years – or even decades – facelift surgery has certainly been the go-to procedure for reversing the signs of facial aging. However, many patients feel that they are too young for a full facelift and wonder what other options they have for a less extensive surgery before facelift. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Hakimi is highly experienced in a wide array of the most advanced and effective facial plastic surgeries available in Beverly Hills, CA, including blepharoplasty. If you have specific concerns about your eyelids and/or want to make improvements for younger-looking eyes but don’t need a full facelift, blepharoplasty may be right for you.
What is an eyelid lift?
Formally known as blepharoplasty, the eyelid lift is a popular facial rejuvenation surgery that is designed to address a number of cosmetic and functional concerns related to the eyelids, including:
- Hooded eyes
- Downturned eyes
- Wrinkled eyelids
- Extra eyelid skin
- Hanging eyelids
- Heavy eyelids
- Lower eye puffiness
- Bulging under the eyes
- Puffiness under the eyes
- Vision problems related to eyelids
- Ethnic eyelid features (no eyelid crease)
Do I need blepharoplasty?
Patients who struggle with extra upper eyelid skin, lower eyelid fat, and drooping eyelids as a result of aging can certainly benefit from an eyelid lift. Additionally, men and women who have naturally heavy eyelids or hooded eyes can also achieve stunning transformations with blepharoplasty surgery. For example, many men and women of Asian descent choose to enhance the eyelid crease with blepharoplasty surgery. During your initial consultation for eyelid surgery in Beverly Hills, Dr. Hakimi will carefully examine your upper and lower eyelids, discuss your concerns and goals, and curate a customized surgical plan that best meets your needs.
How much does an eyelid lift cost?
The cost of blepharoplasty can vary greatly based on the patient’s geographical location, chosen surgeon, the type of eyelid surgery performed, whether any additional procedures are combined with the eyelid lift, and a number of other factors. Dr. Hakimi firmly believes that every patient deserves to look and feel their best, and is proud to accept a broad range of payment and financing options.
Generally speaking, eyelid surgery is less expensive than facelift surgery, though it still offers patients the opportunity to look dramatically younger, more awake, and more refreshed. In fact, many men and women choose to undergo blepharoplasty in their 30s or 40s as a first step toward facelift surgery in the future. In many cases, the results of blepharoplasty can last for years to come and even delay the need for a full facelift. Furthermore, eyelid lift surgery can help to preserve or prolong your facelift results.
