Eye Lid Lift
Your eyes can reveal a lot about you, giving hints at your age, energy levels and mood. When the eyelids droop or sag, you can look older, tired, sad or all of the above. Blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift, can rejuvenate sagging or droopy eyes to make you look more youthful and energetic. Dr. John Anastasatos offers upper and lower blepharoplasty at his plastic surgery clinics in Athens, Greece, and Beverly Hills, CA.
Dr. Anastasatos has spent over two decades performing precise cosmetic surgeries with phenomenal results. As an international plastic surgeon, he utilizes the most advanced techniques in both the U.S. and Europe to ensure his patients achieve natural, lasting improvements. One of his areas of expertise is performing eyelid lift surgeries that can refresh the appearance of the face. This is while still retaining a natural look for the patient.
Blepharoplasty is one of the most delicate types of plastic surgeries, but also one of the most beneficial in terms of improving the facial appearance. The skin on the eyelids is the thinnest on the body, and very prone to sagging and drooping with age. Eyelid lifts can open up the eyes and restore a more youthful appearance. These procedures are often combined with a facelift or brow lift to rejuvenate the entire face. Blepharoplasty can also address genetic eye formations that cause droopy eyes, eye bags or thin eyes.
Upper Eyelid Lift
The upper eyelids are a common area for lost skin elasticity and impacted by genetics. In aging individuals, the skin on the upper eyelids can become loose and sag, creating a hooded or droopy eye. This can make the eyes look smaller and older, and in some cases, it can impact vision. An upper eyelid lift can use a small incision at the crease of the eyelid to remove excess skin and fat while tightening the skin. The results can be a more open and energetic look for the patient.
Some people are born with upper eyelids that droop or create a fold of skin that hamper the eye shape and vision. Blepharoplasty can be used to change the shape of the upper eyelid for certain traits that will make a person look sleepy or unalert. Upper eyelid surgery can also be performed to create a double-eyelid for those of Asian descent that have a single upper eyelid.
The lower eyelid and the skin below it can sag and change the appearance of the eyes. Loose skin and fat creates eye bags that make a person look older and tired. Dark circles may also appear, or the eyes can look puffy due to the blood vessels under the thin lower eyelid skin. Lower blepharoplasty can remove excess skin and fat, tighten the skin or remove some of the blood vessels that cause dark circles or puffy eyes.
In many cases, patients may have both the upper and lower eyelids lifted in one procedure. Dr. Anastasatos often performs blepharoplasty with an endoscopic brow lift that can transform the entire upper face for a rejuvenated appearance. Using the most advanced techniques, Dr. Anastasatos creates natural, beautiful eyelid lift results that are designed to last.
