Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)
An eyelid lift can make a dramatic improvement in your appearance with minimal downtime when loose and puffy eyelids keep you looking tired and worn out. Dr. Elizabeth Callahan is a board-certified dermatologic surgeon and fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon who combines her specialized knowledge of the skin with refined surgical abilities to restore a naturally refreshed look to the eye area. An eyelid lift at our Sarasota practice may be just the right choice to enhance your inner confidence.
To find out if an eyelid lift is right for you, request a cosmetic consultation or call our Sarasota office at (941) 308-7546.
Aging Eyelids/Eyelid Rejuvenation
As we age the skin loses elasticity, and facial bone and fat diminish creating decreased volume. These natural changes result in excess upper eyelid skin, fat pads in the upper and lower eyelids (causing bulging of the lids), and wrinkling and thinning of the eyelid skin. These changes can accelerate with sun exposure, smoking, stress and significant weight loss.
Reducing the sagging skin and puffiness of the upper eyelids and puffiness and wrinkling of the lower eyelids can significantly reduce the appearance of tiredness and help you look refreshed and appear younger.
Dr. Callahan customizes each eyelid lift to the unique facial anatomy of the patient for a look that is brighter, but not overdone. Using advanced techniques and local anesthesia, she enhances the area around the eyes by providing one or more of the following improvements:
- Tightening sagging upper eyelids
- Smoothing crow’s feet at the outer corners of the eyes
- Lifting sagging lower eyelids
- Reducing puffy under-eye bags
As skincare specialists, the SkinSmart Dermatology® providers are skilled in the most effective non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments that may enhance your eyelid lift, such as Ultherapy®, Pellevé®, Fraxel re:pair®, BOTOX® Cosmetic and injectable fillers. During your cosmetic consultation, we will ask you to describe the improvements you desire, then we will carefully assess your skin and recommend a treatment plan that is best suited to your aesthetic goals.
