Eyelid Lift in Scottsdale, AZ

An eyelid lift can provide dramatic facial rejuvenation effects. Your eyes express a lot. They convey how you feel and what you’re thinking.

Your eyes can also be very telling as far as your age. You may find that you actually feel far younger than your face portrays. For patients who want to regain a youthful, bright-eyed appearance, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Prichard can perform an eyelid lift in Scottsdale for long-lasting, natural-looking improvements.

Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both if you find you need it to accomplish facial rejuvenation. Patients choose to have eyelid surgery for benefits that include:

  • Reducing appearance of puffy under-eye bags
  • Acquiring a defined upper eyelid crease
  • Removal of lax eyelid skin that may be impeding one’s vision
  • Eradication of lower eyelid fat

About the Procedure

Eyelid surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure using IV sedation or general anesthesia. This is solely administered under the care of a board-certified anesthesiologist. Procedure details depend on the unique needs of the patient and whether an upper blepharoplasty, lower blepharoplasty, or double eyelid surgery is being performed.

For upper eyelid surgery, the incisions are deliberately placed along the crease of the upper eyelid. Through this incision, Dr. Prichard will gently remove excess skin and fat from the area.

Regarding lower eyelid surgery, or under eye bag surgery, incisions can be made within the lower eyelids, or along the lower lash line, causing the resultant scar to be virtually invisible. Dr. Prichard makes it his priority to perform some of the best eyelid surgery Phoenix has to offer.

During Recovery

After eyelid surgery, the treated areas will be carefully covered. It is suggested that you arrange for someone trusted to escort you home.

Applying cold compresses for the first 24 hours can help tremendously to minimize any swelling and bruising you may experience. Additionally, it is very important to keep your head elevated as much as possible during the first week or so. Sleeping in a recliner or with extra pillows behind your head helps immensely.

Generally, patients feel ready to return work within 7 days or so. Approximately 3 to 5 weeks after the eyelid procedure, you can take up strenuous exercise routines again. Eye drops may help with any irritation.
