Highlands, NC Eyelid Surgery – Is It Right for Me?

Friday, December 20th, 2013


As you age, no matter how hard your work to stay in shape and eat right, your eyelids may not cooperate. If they have started to droop, there isn’t an exercise out there to bring them back to their younger form.

It may be time to consider eyelid surgery.

Eyelid surgery can help with a number of different imperfections surrounding the eyes such as:

  • Smoothing out wrinkles around the eyes.
  • Removing unsightly bags under the eyes.
  • Lifting and tightening sagging skin.
  • Tightening the eyelid for a more lifted appearance.

Is it right for you?

If your skin is in good general health and you would like to fix any of the above problems, eyelid surgery can help you look younger and healthier, whatever your age.

An initial consultation with a doctor will detail how the surgery will proceed and whether you’re a good candidate. Here is what makes a good candidate:

  • Is in good general health
  • Has realistic expectations of what the surgery will do
  • Is a non-smoker
  • Can take time off for recovery

The eyelid lift can also be performed along with other surgeries or procedures like Botox, facelifts, or forehead lifts to have everything done in a single session. Newer methods available in these surgeries allow for easier recovery and better results. Recovery time needed varies from person to person, but is typically 4-6 days long.
