Eyelid lifts are one of the most effective cosmetic procedures available. This is beneficial for those who want to reduce the look of age and tiredness around the eyes. However, if you are interested in getting an eyelid lift, there are a few things you should know before moving forward. Continue reading If you believe you can benefit from an eyelid lift in Fort Lauderdale.

  • Many people who seek face-lifts can get the same results from receiving an eyelid lift. Because the eyes are the main focal point of the face, when your eyes look the best they can, the rest of the face is ignored. Often, it is the eyes that show age the fastest.
  • You can receive an eyelid lift on the top or bottom eyelid. Eyelid lifts that are done on the top lid are done to remove any excess fat, skin or muscle that may be hanging, creating a drowsy appearance. Bottom eyelid lifts are done to remove bags under the eyes. The surgery that takes more time is the lower lid operation. However, both surgeries are easy in comparison to other surgeries.
  • Your insurance may cover an eyelid lift if your eyelids obstruct your vision. With age and sun damage, your eyelids may begin to sag so much that they get in the way of vision. By having a doctor give you a vision examination, they will be able to tell if the eyelid surgery will benefit your vision and health. If so, you will qualify for assistance.
