Upper eyelid lift surgery is a highly customized form of eye surgery designed to restore a youthful appearance by reversing troubling changes to the upper eyelids brought on by aging. Also known as upper eyelid surgery, upper blepharoplasty, upper eye lift, or a lidlift, upper eyelid lift surgery is most commonly used to address upper eyelid ptosis and/or hooding resulting from the natural aging process. Upper eyelid ptosis is caused by the weakening of the levator muscle, causing the eyelid to droop or appear heavy. Hooding develops when the skin of the upper eyelid sags and hangs down over the edge of the upper eyelid. These unwelcome changes to the upper eyelid can create a chronically tired, worn out, or unnaturally puffy appearance and unfortunately, can significantly undermine your look of youthful vigor and energy.
When performed by a highly trained and experienced oculofacial and cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Kenneth Steinsapir in Beverly Hills, California, an upper eyelid lift can address these problem areas and restore your youthful appearance of health and vitality! Dr. Steinsapir’s advanced, less aggressive surgical techniques make this cosmetic surgery ideal for patients seeking to:
- Minimize upper eyelid puffiness and swelling by removing excess fat from the upper eyelids
- Eliminate the appearance of sagging, drooping upper eyelids by tightening and lifting the eyelid musculature
- Remove excess skin obscuring the natural eyelid crease to correct “hooding”
- Eliminate the appearance of crepiness and facilitate ease of make-up placement by smoothing the eyelid platform
Traditional eyelid surgery techniques utilize overly-aggressive, “subtractive” methodologies that carry an increased risk of damage to the muscles around the eyes, and can leave patients looking “overworked” and in the worst cases can even impede full closure of the eyelid. Dissatisfied with these less-than-satisfactory techniques, Dr. Steinsapir has developed an innovative new technique known as “structured micro-blepharoplasty” that emphasizes the maintenance of the natural structure of the eyelid in order to preserve the integrity of the eyelids and avoid undue damage to their delicate tissues. These revolutionary techniques ensure that Dr. Steinsapir’s patients achieve consistently natural-looking, youthful results with less recovery time and less risk for potential complications.
Dr. Steinsapir’s extensive track record of successful, long-lasting results is predicated not only on his innovative surgical techniques, but also on his patient-centric, individualized approach to each and every upper eyelid lift he performs. For this reason, Dr. Steinsapir is unable to provide an exact cost of your eyelid lift surgery until he has had a chance to meet with you personally and discuss with you your aesthetic goals and medical concerns. During this individual consultation, Dr. Steinsapir will develop a surgical plan that is customized to ensure that your procedure rejuvenates your appearance while subtly blending with the natural harmony of your facial contours. He will discuss with you exactly what your surgery will involve and will provide you with a comprehensive cost estimate which will fully outline the cost of your specific surgical procedure.
