Eyelid Lift Surgery Candidates

Eyelid Lift Surgery Candidates

Posted on October 10, 2017

The area around the eyes is one of the first areas of the face that will reveal signs of aging. Eyelid lift cosmetic surgery is an effective solution for candidates who want to eliminate under eye bags, provide a subtle lift to sagging upper lids, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the lower eyelids.  
The surgeon will determine a patient’s candidacy for eyelid lift surgery during the initial consultation. Some patients may need upper or lower eyelid lift, while some others may require a combination of the two.
Fiala Aesthetics Plastic Surgery, led by stellar, committed, and board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Fiala, provides eyelid lift to patients in Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and other suburbs and neighborhoods in this area of the state.

Who should Choose Eyelid Lift?

Not everyone may be an ideal candidate for eyelid lift surgery. People who want to correct puffy upper eyelids, restore vision that is partially obstructed due to sagging upper lids, mitigate aging signs and depressions around the lower eyelids, and remove under eye bags may make good candidates for eyelid lift cosmetic surgery.
The surgeon will check whether the patient is suffering from an untreated eye infection, which will have to be addressed first before an eyelid lift can be performed. Patients with certain ophthalmic and medical conditions may not make suitable candidates for eyelid lift.

Cosmetic Considerations

Patients with one or more of the following characteristics typically make good candidates for eyelid lift surgery:
Puffy Upper Eyelids
Eyelid lift surgery procedure is designed to smooth the appearance of under-eye bags or puffiness.
Tired Looking Eyes
Eyelid surgery can address the features that may be causing an individual to appear older and more tired than they really may be.
Excess Upper Eyelid Skin
Loose or sagging upper eyelids can be tightened with eyelid lift by removing the excess skin. Excess fat may be redistributed to create a more youthful eyelid appearance.

Attributes of a Good Candidate

At least 18 Years Old
A majority of candidates who seek eyelid lift are above the age of 35. But in a few cases, if the problem of saggy eyelids runs in the family, the patient may make an ideal candidate at a younger age.
Good Overall Health
Although eyelid lift is a relatively minor plastic surgery procedure, the patient should consider different eyelid surgery risks. Candidates who are in good physical and emotional health will usually have minimal risk of complications in this procedure.
Realistic Expectations
A stellar candidate will have a clear idea of what an eyelid lift surgery can or cannot do for them, and will choose the procedure after careful deliberation. Such candidates will often achieve high satisfaction levels in the end and will be able to appreciate the results in a better way.
Committed to Following Surgeon’s Instructions
Pre- and post-operative care instructions of the surgeon must be followed diligently to achieve predictable outcomes with eyelid lift. The patient should discontinue smoking as instructed, and should ensure that eyes receive adequate rest after the surgery for a certain time period.
Perspicacious and marvelous plastic surgeon Dr. Fiala receives patients from Orlando, Altamonte Springs, FL, and nearby areas for eyelid lift surgery.
