Types of Eyelid Lift (Eyelid Surgery)

Dr. Bresnick offers the latest, state-of-the-art techniques to improve the eyelids aesthetically. The type of eyelid surgery which is offered to each patient is carefully chosen by the doctor to maximize surgical results. Dr. Bresnick utilizes the following procedures to correct the eyelids:

  1. Upper eyelid lift: In this procedure, an incision is hidden within the natural fold of the upper eyelid and may extend into a natural, crow’s foot line. Through this incision, excess skin and fat is removed and contouring of the eyelid is performed. Once healed, this upper eyelid incision is well camouflaged and naturally hidden.
  2. Lower eyelid fat removal (transconjunctival blepharoplasty): In this technique, also known as the “scarless lower eyelid technique” or “transconjunctival blepharoplasty”, excess lower eyelid fat is removed with an incision completely hidden inside the eyelid. No visible scar is produced! This procedure may be all that some patients require to rejuvenate the lower eyelid.
  3. Lower eyelid lift: In the lower eyelid lift procedure, excess fat and skin is removed with an incision hidden just below the lower eyelashes. The incision is very well concealed and very difficult to see once it has healed. For many patients, the lower eyelid is also tightened in this procedure, giving a more youthful eyelid shape and tone..
  4. 4. Lower eyelid tightening (cathopexy): Patients who have loose or droopy lower eyelids or just desire more youthful, higher lower lids, may benefit from a tightening procedure of the lower eyelid. In this procedure, the lower lid is lifted and tightened with a small, inconsipicuous incision.
  5. Eyelid lift done in combination with forehead lift: For patients desiring maximal improvement in the eyelid/brow area, Dr. Bresnick can perform both eyelid lifting and forehead/brow lifting together, to rejuvenate the entire upper face. In this procedure, the forehead is tightened, wrinkles are improved, the brows are elevated, and the upper eyelids are restored to a more youthful, attractive appearance.
