Is an Eyelid Lift Part of a Facelift?

A facelift can be absolutely transformative for patients, as it helps lift sagging skin that can make them look older than they actually are.

But if your biggest aging concern is around your eyes, then eyelid surgery may be all that you need.

Let’s take a closer look at board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Vitolo’s advice about eyelid lifts and facelifts.

Eyelid Lifts & Facelifts: What to Expect

An eyelid lift can be a stand-alone procedure or it can be included as part of a facelift.  For most patients, eyelid surgery is usually needed before a facelift.  Most patients will need eyelid surgery in their thirties to mid-fifties, however, dr Vitolo has performed scarless eyelid fat removal in patients as young as their early twenties!

Scarless eyelid surgery removes the “bulging fat bags” under the eyes. If the patient also has excess eyelid skin in the upper and lower eyelids, this can be corrected with the use of a laser at the same time and there is still no scar!

If you’re still not sure which option is right for you, Dr. Vitolo can chat with you during your consultation about your concerns, and what results in you’d like to see from your procedure. Dr. Vitolo can create a surgical plan based on your vision for yourself.
