With time, skin begins to lose its vital building structures and may lead to sagging skin of the eyelids or even furrowing brows. If you are concerned about the aesthetics of your eyes, or your vision is becoming impaired with excess sagging skin, an eyelid lift or brow lift in Salt Lake City may be right for you.
What is an Eyelid & Brow Lift?
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure that addresses excess, sagging, or puffy skin of the eyelids. In most cases, eyelid surgery is combined with a brow lift to open up the eye area for a more alert and youthful appearance.
Who is a Candidate for Eyelid & Brow Lift?
If you are overall healthy and you don’t have any serious eye medical conditions, you may be a candidate for an eyelid or brow lift. During your consultation, your physical features will be examined, and Dr. Howland will thoroughly evaluate which procedure techniques are right for you. Some patients require a full blepharoplasty, or they may just need to address their upper eyelid or lower eyelid.
What to Expect
Your enhancement surgery will be tailored to your specific needs. The incisions involved with an eyelid surgery go along the natural crease of the eyes and lower eyelid. Once incisions are made, the excess skin is removed and the tissue and fat are repositioned or removed for your new appearance. Recovery times will vary based on the extent of the alterations desired. Dr. Howland will give you specific post-operative instructions to follow to ensure a quick and safe recovery.
Eyelid & Brow Lift Results
Most patients see their final results with healed bruising and swelling within 2 weeks of their surgery. However, it may take a few months before you completely heal. Although eyelid and brow lift provide long-lasting results, the aging process will continue and ideal skin care will help maintain your youthful appearance.
If you feel that you are looking tired or older than you are due to the appearance of your eyes and eyebrows, contact Dr. Howland to schedule your consultation today.
