What is the Technique?

The upper eyelid lift procedure is meticulously crafted to each patient's unique needs. Typically performed as an outpatient procedure, it involves carefully placed incisions along the natural creases of the upper eyelids. Excess skin and, if necessary, a portion of fat are removed to create a smoother, more taut appearance. Dr. Vinyard's expert hands ensure precision in sculpting the eyelids for natural results that harmonize with your facial features.

What to Expect

Prior to the procedure, a thorough consultation with Dr. Vinyard will establish your goals and address any concerns. On the day of the surgery, you'll receive personalized anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the process. The incisions are discreetly located in the natural creases of the upper eyelids, minimizing visible scarring. Dr. Vinyard will skillfully remove excess skin and fat while also addressing any muscle laxity if needed.

You'll experience mild swelling and bruising around the treated area following the procedure. Dr. Vinyard will provide detailed post-operative instructions to aid your recovery. Most patients can return to their daily activities within a week, although strenuous activities should be avoided for a bit longer. As the swelling subsides, the youthful results of the upper eyelid lift will become increasingly evident, unveiling a revitalized eye contour.
