Big bags or dark circles hovering under your eyes can make you look exhausted, unhealthy, or far older than you actually are. Consider an eyelid lift procedure by Dr. Ralston to help you look younger, healthier, and more attentive.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?

Men and women whose eyes and eyelids are puffy, baggy, or sagging. Anyone looking to look younger and more alert can benefit from an eyelid lift.

THE PROCEDURE

Eyelid lifts are generally done while the patient is awake and given a sedative and general anesthesia. An incision is made in the fold of the eyelid to minimize scarring. The skin is separated from the underlying tissue and any excess fat or muscle tissue is removed or repositioned. The surgeon removes excess and sagging skin and closes the incision with small sutures. The stitches will usually be removed after anywhere from two to five days.

RECOVERY

After your eyelid lift, you will likely experience some blurred vision; this is normal and only temporary. Your eyes may feel tender, tight, or sore. Some pain is also pretty standard after the procedure.

Eyelid lifts can help you look younger, healthier, and more alert and, in some cases, improve your vision. Bags or dark circles under your eyes can be minimized or eliminated.
