As you grow older, your eyelid start to sag and become baggy. This diminishes the attractiveness of your face, making you look older and more tired.

If your eyelids droop too much, they may also flop over your eyes and obstruct your view. An eye lift surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, uplifts your eyelids, making your face look more youthful.

Cosmetic eye lift

A cosmetic eye lift is performed mainly to improve your appearance. In this procedure, the surgeon will remove excess skin and fat and reposition your eyelid muscles. In some cases, you may require surgery on both eyelids.

Functional eye lift

A functional eye lift is a surgery conducted for medical reasons. You are an ideal candidate if:

  • Your eyelids obstruct your vision
  • You have difficulties wearing contact lenses
  • Your forehead muscles strain from constantly lifting sagging skin
