Eyelid Lift

When you look at younger pictures of yourself and compare them to the face you see in the mirror, are the eyes the biggest change? For many, the eyes are where the most significant and first changes occur during the aging process. The upper and lower eyelids can sag, making you look older and tired, even when you feel young and energetic. Dr. Rousso in Manhattan offers beautiful eyelid lifts that look natural and can help you appear more like your younger self again.

The skin and tissue on the eyelids are delicate, yet they are constantly stretching and moving. Every time you smile, squint, blink or apply makeup, the skin around the eyes is impacted. As the skin loses collagen as you age, the thin skin on the eyelids stretches and sags. The upper lids can look hooded, while the bottom lid can droop and cause wrinkles and bags under the eyes. The solution is to remove the excess skin and then lift the skin and tissue, giving you back the look you had when you were younger.

Advanced Eyelid Lift Techniques

While you may want an eyelid lift for a more youthful appearance, you also want the results to look natural. Dr. Rousso uses the latest techniques and innovations in facial plastic surgery to give our patients the natural results they desire. The goal is to give a refreshed look, not a pulled or “plastic” appearance. This is achieved through intimate knowledge of the most effective techniques for removing excess eyelid skin and lifting the tissue, without pulling or tightening. The scar is carefully hidden, either inside the eyelid or within the crease, making it impossible to see any noticeable evidence that you had plastic surgery, except a more youthful appearance.

If you want to look younger and more energetic through upper or lower eyelid lift surgery, contact our team at our NYC office today. Dr. Rousso can discuss the options available and help you choose the right facial plastic surgery procedure to achieve the results you desire.
