Eye Lift is a Sight for Sad Eyes

Many people who come to me considering a face lift in Chicago want to improve sagging skin and wrinkles around their eyes. Often, the best approach for these patients is not a face lift but an eye lift.

Face Lift vs. Eye Lift

A face lift addresses the lower portions of the face, including the cheeks, jawline and neck – not the forehead, brows or eyes. Usually, I recommend face lift surgery for those who want to:

  • Have a more defined jawline
  • Reduce sagging in the mid-face
  • Soften “laugh lines” or “smile lines”
  • Rejuvenate the neck

Eyelid surgery, on the other hand, specifically targets the upper or lower lids (or both) to create a refreshed, alert appearance. With eyelid surgery, you can:

  • Eliminate under-eye bags
  • Smooth out “crow’s feet” and other wrinkles around the eyes
  • Elevate drooping upper or lower eyelids
  • Improve impaired vision caused by heavy upper eyelids

Your Options

Sometimes the best results are achieved when I combine procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery and even a brow lift, which smooths the forehead. This way, I am able to give the entire face a rejuvenated appearance, rather than just focusing on one specific area. These procedures can normally be performed during one operation to reduce overall healing time and the need for multiple surgeries.
