What Does an Eyelid Lift Do?

An eyelid lift is a term that is often used to refer to upper eyelid surgery. This procedure can help to reduce common signs of aging, such as sagging skin and tissue in the upper eyelid area. You can find out what type of results you might be able to achieve by speaking with an expert in eyelid lift in Los Angeles.

An eyelid lift is used to correct drooping skin that occurs beneath the brow bone. Accumulation of fat and weakened skin tissue can cause the skin in this area to drop down over part or all of the upper eyelid. A skilled surgeon can remove the excess fat, tissue, and skin. The remaining tissue is pulled taut for a smoother appearance.

If the drooping in your upper eyelid area is caused by sagging eyebrows, you may want to consider having a brow lift, also known as a forehead lift to reduce the pressure on the upper eyelid area.

Upper eyelid surgery should not be confused with double eyelid surgery. In the latter procedure, the surgeon can create a fold and a visible upper eyelid that is not always present in certain individuals.
