How To Determine If You Need Eye Lift Surgery

By Dean Caporella

Eye lift surgery has a two-fold benefit for patients and is one of the more popular eye surgery techniques performed today. It's ability to enhance a persons cosmetic features is probably the main reason for people "going under the surgeon's knife" however, it has also vision improving benefits.

What Is Eye Lift Surgery?

The procedure involves removing excess skin from the upper and lower lids with the aim of providing the patient with a more youthful and fresher look. It's not uncommon for people in their twenties to have eye lift surgery and while this may be seen as being a little indulgent, the fact remains that the surgical technology is now available.

Did You Know?

The question of why the area around a person's eye often looks tired and worn the older they get is often asked. Simply explained, because of the thin nature of the eyelid skin, it's this area which is likely to succumb initially to the effects of aging. Eye lift surgery has been a godsend to many people concerned about heavy bags and wrinkles under the eyes and when the benefits are compared to the risks, it's almost a no-brainer for people making a decision on having the surgery.

The First Step

There is a rigid consultation process involved before any reputable surgeoun will consider performing eye lift surgery. Keep this in mind if you are considering the procedure. Your surgeon will establish such things as:

- Why you want eye lift surgery performed
- The areas giving you most concern
- Your expectations from the surgery
- Your family medical history

Be warned that it's simply not just a matter of going into surgery with heavy and ugly eyelids and coming out looking like a fresh-faced teenager. This is why you will undergo a solid consultation period to determine mainly what your expectations are. Many people have unrealistic goals and in all likelihood, you will be told that the surgery will not correct all and every blemish.

It's also worth remembering the effects of the surgery may not become fully apparent for nearly a year although in most cases, an initial improvement will be noticed in the first month. You may also be required to undergo further procedures depending on the level of attention you need.

Did You Know?

The recovery period following eye lift surgery will vary depending on the extent of treatment you receive. As a guide, bruising will begin to dissipate after the first week. You may be required to take mild medication but in most cases, you'll receive relief instructions such as the use of ice packs and eye drops. While pain is minimal, you'll more than likely be asked to monitor your temperature in case of infection but again, this is mainly for precautionary measures.

Eye Lift Surgery Cost

A number of factors will affect the overall cost including consultaion, anaesthestists and surgery procedure but it could set you back anywhere between $2000-$6000. This figure could be even higher in more extreme cases. Be wary of accepting just a total price; in other words, always ask for a breakdown of the specific costs.
