Eyelid Lift- Rejuvenate Your Best Feature

Are your eyes your best feature? If your “baby blues” are hiding behind sagging, droopy eyelids, you may benefit from an eyelid lift. Also called blepharoplasty or an eyelift, this procedure tightens up loose skin around the eyes and eyelids. It can be used to enhance the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. For some patients an eyelid lift can even restore vision blocked by overhanging upper lids. Blepharoplasty is typically performed on patients in their 40s or beyond, but can be completed earlier, especially on patients with a strong family history of eyelid sagging.

Choose an eyelid lift if:

  • You have sagging around or under the eyes.
  • You want to focus rejuvenation in the eye area.
  • You have bags under the eyes.
  • You have drooping eyelids.

Facelift- Show Your Best Face to the World

Turn back the clock 5-10 years or more with a facelift. This procedure lifts and tightens skin on the lower half of the face. It provides dramatic rejuvenation. Dr. Tehrani often uses the multilevel facelift technique, an innovative facelift technique that tightens loose skin and addresses sagging and structural issues on the deeper layers of the face. He is well known for his natural looking and age-defying facelift results.

Dr. Tehrani typically recommends this procedure for patients that:

  • Have lower or mid-facial sagging.
  • Have wrinkles or excess skin.
  • Have neck sagging.
  • Want to rejuvenate the face.

Facelift + Eyelid Lift- Do I Need Both?

If you’re thinking about a facelift, consider adding a complementary procedure. A facelift dramatically rejuvenates the lower face, but doesn’t change the forehead, eyelids, etc. Many men and women choose to pair their facelift with one of these complementary procedures to rejuvenate the entire face from brow to neck. An eyelid lift pairs beautifully with a facelift if you’re wanting to revitalize the eyes and lower face.

A facelift or an eyelid lift (or both) is the holiday gift you’ll enjoy for years to come. Treat yourself this holiday season and start the new year off right.
