Also known as an eye lift or blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is intended to make the face appear younger by reducing under eye bagginess and by removing sagging skin in the upper eyelids. The surgery may also improve vision in older patients whose vision is impeded by sagging upper eyelids.

Overall, if you are unhappy with the appearance of your upper or lower eyelids, you are probably a good candidate for this procedure. Eyelid surgery can do wonders for the youthfulness of your face by rejuvenating the entire eye area with just one procedure.

People who are overall healthy and have realistic expectations are the best candidates for eyelid surgery. It is important to note that while the surgery may make the eyes appear younger, aging will continue to occur in the skin after eyelid surgery. Results of upper eyelid surgery tend to last five to seven years while lower eyelid surgery rarely require a repeat procedure. Most patients are over age 35; however, some elect to have the surgery at an earlier age if they find that sagging eyelids is hereditary. The only way to know for sure if you are a good candidate is to visit Dr. Ken Morgenstern for a one-on-one consultation.
