Eyelid lift candidates should be in good health, non-smokers, with realistic expectations for the procedure and it’s potential results, and they should not have any eye conditions that could hinder recovery.
Dr. Terranova works with each patient to determine the best procedure process for achieving their goals. The upper eyelid lift is performed through an incision in the natural fold of the upper eyelid, while the lower eyelid lift is performed through an incision beneath the lower eyelash line. Excess fatty tissue and skin is removed, while muscles may be tightened and fat redistributed to correct puffiness.
