Upper Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)
“The windows to your soul”
The signs of premature aging, such as dark circles, sagging upper and lower eyelids, fine lines and wrinkles, can make you look tired and older. Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is the recommended and most often preferred treatment for removing bags under the eyes or improving droopy eyelids. These aging eye conditions can add years to your appearance and even impair your vision. More often than wanting a more “youthful” look, we find that our patients want a more “well rested” look, which eyelid rejuvenation addresses well.
“Dr. Kundaria may remove fat and tighten muscle to help you attain a fresher, more alert yet completely natural eye expression.”
If you have drooping eyelids or bags under your eyes, Charlotte facial plastic surgeon Summit Kundaria can enhance your appearance and give your face a more youthful appearance with an upper, lower, or combined eyelid lift.
To achieve the best overall facial rejuvenation results and a look that is uniform, each patient is assessed based on their individual needs and desires.
It is not uncommon for patients seeking eyelid surgery to have other facial procedures performed at the same time, including face lift, brow lift, skin resurfacing, and non-surgical treatments.
HOW IS EYELID LIFT SURGERY PERFORMED?
“We can reassure you by showing you our patients’ before-and-after pictures.”
Dr. Kundaria will make well-planned incisions along the natural lines of your eyelids, which results in minimal scarring in the upper eyelid. For the lower eyelid, the transconjunctival approach is usually used, which leaves no visible scarring. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin from the upper and/or lower lids, and Dr. Kundaria may remove fat and tighten muscle to help you attain a fresher, more alert—yet completely natural—eye expression.
Recovery After Eyelid Lift Surgery
Usually, you will be ready to return to work or normal activities in 7 to 14 days. Most patients are back to their normal routine within days, although complete recovery may take a few weeks. If you notice how your drooping eyelids and puffy or hollow under eye areas may be adding years to your age, ask Dr. Kundaria how a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) can help you. We can reassure you by showing you our patients’ before-and-after pictures that Dr. Kundaria will take an artistic approach and will personalize the surgery and any non-surgical services to be right for your unique face.
