The results of eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) are generally long lasting. It's not uncommon for the longevity of results to vary slightly between patients, but you can expect the results of the upper eyelids to last about 5 to 7 years, and the lower eyelid results are essentially permanent. With the upper eyelids, after several years the skin may begin to sag again. A common reason is that the forehead and brow sag over time, pushing down on the skin above your eyelids. In such cases, you may benefit from a brow lift to raise and smooth the skin on your brow.
Eyelid surgery has a dramatic but natural rejuvenation effect. The procedure is ideal for:
- Puffy or hanging skin concealing the natural curve and crease of your upper eyelids.
- Skin above the upper eyelids is bulging over your eyelashes.
- Fine lines beneath your eyes.
- Bags of sagging excess fat beneath your eyes.
Blepharoplasty is one of the most effective ways to enjoy long-term rejuvenation results. During a personalized consultation, Dr. Ken Morgenstern can help you decide if it's right for you.
