The Most Commonly Asked Questions About Upper & Lower Eyelid Lifts

Am I a Good Candidate for These Procedures?

Upper eyelid lifts and lower eyelid lifts are never decided on in a hasty manner. Each patient needs to be evaluated individually before any final decisions are made. If you are motivated, have the time necessary to handle the healing process, and have no health issues that would affect the procedure, this is a wonderful place to start.

Am I Too Young For Eyelid Lifts?

Our board-certified surgeons do not typically look at this procedure in terms of age. Is it a necessary procedure for you? This is a more accurate way to phrase this query. No two patients are going to experience the signs of aging at the same exact time.

Will Insurance Coverage Be Available?

In most instances, this question is answered in a very simple way. Does the patient have a medical reason that requires an upper eyelid lift or a lower eyelid lift? If vision is starting to become affected, this is an aspect that insurance companies will need to know more about.

Is the Procedure Painful?

Patients typically report a sizable amount of surprise when it comes to this procedure and the lack of pain that takes place. The discomfort after upper and lower eyelid lifts is minimal to moderate at most.

Are the Results Long-lasting?

While the results are not going to last for the rest of your life, you should enjoy the results of the procedure for several years. On some occasions, patients may require additional revisions, but they are typically minor in nature.
