How Do You Know if You Need an Eye Lift?

Have you recently looked in the mirror and noticed that you looked more tired, sad or stressed than you really feel? Do puffy, droopy eyelids make you appear older than you are? If you’re looking for solutions for a tired-looking face and want to have a more youthful look, you might consider eye lift surgery.

Eye lift surgery (blepharoplasty) can be performed on your upper lids, lower lids or both. During an eye lift in Ft. Collins, excess skin and fat are removed from the lids, making them less droopy and puffy. In the case of a lower eyelid lift, the procedure also smooths out bags or wrinkles just below the eye. An eye lift is a great way to open up and show off your beautiful eyes.

It can be difficult for some patients to determine if they need an eye lift. Below are common signs that it may be time for you to consider an eye lift procedure:

  • You look tired even when you’re rested
  • Your lashes are invisible, or you have no visible eyelid crease/eyelid platform – no place to put your eye makeup.
  • The skin is sagging to such a degree that you find yourself forcing your eyes to be more OPEN (raising one or both brows)
  • Your skin is sagging to the point it not only impacts your looks but impacts your vision and your ability to close your eyes or blink properly

One of the first signs of aging is shown in our eyes. If you are experiencing any of the signs listed or you think you may need eye lift surgery, contact Chet Reistad, M.D. at 970-221-2222 or chetreistadmd.com to schedule a consultation with Dr. Reistad.
