Do you have hooding on the upper eyelids or bags below the eyes that are making you look older than you feel? You may be a good candidate for an eyelid lift. An eyelid lift is a simple procedure that can refresh your appearance, and help turn back the clock. But you may be a little apprehensive about the incisions for surgery, so you’re anxious to find out what the incision for an eyelid lift is like.
An eyelid lift or blepharoplasty rejuvenates the eyelids by treating droopy upper eyelids, and undereye bags. An upper eyelid lift is the ideal fix for hooding or excess, sagging skin on the lids. It removes the extra skin and fat, and provides a subtle lift to the brows. A lower eyelid lift resolves bags and excess fat below the eyes, as well as dark circles.
An eyelid lift may be done on the upper or lower eyelids, or on both, it all depends on the specific concerns of the patient.
What is the incision like for an eyelid lift?
The incision for an upper eyelid lift is typically made in the natural crease of the upper eyelids, so scars are not visible after surgery. There are different approaches to lower eyelid surgery, and this will influence the placement of the incision. However the incision is generally placed either on the inside of the lid, or just below the lash line. These scars also heal well and are virtually indiscernible.
