Eye Lift Surgery

By: 60capp11
Eye lift surgery has been a godsend for many people looking for an answer to rejuvenating the appearance around their eyes. In fact, before it's considered, many will spend a fortune on products such as "magical creams" which for the most part, are inclined to be a short term fix.

Who Needs Eye Lift Surgery

If you suffer from extra skin on your eye lids then you should consider talking to a specialist about laser eye lift. Puffy eyes or dark circles around the eyes don't make for an appealing appearance and for those who fall under these categories, it's a major ritual everyday just performing makeshift work to mask the unsightly appearance presented by these conditions.

I'm not trying to sound too harsh but particularly for people who reach middle age and suffer from tired eyes or appearing to present a tired appearance most of the time, it may be time to investigate this type of surgery.

What Is Eye Lift Surgery?

Basically, the procedure is designed to remove excess skin from around the eyelids. Obviously, people in their twenties wouldn't normally consider such a procedure but times are changing and the incidence of younger people requesting laser eye lift is on the increase. But that's another story.

Essentially, once people move into their thirties, age begins to become more noticeable and by middle age, the eyelids thin and begin to relax. Don't worry, I guess it's the price you pay for getting older but technology has provided an answer to combat this issue. When someone decides to have the procedure performed, they're after an eye refresher or a refreshed or rested appearance.

A tiny incision is made inside the eyelid from which fat is drained. The eyes are protected all the time.

Average Cost Of An Eye Lift

Pinpointing an average cost is difficult because price can vary from country to country. Price depends also on whether the procedure is performed under local anesthesia in a surgeon's office or whether hospilization for a short period may be required.

There are two price ranges to consider and this depends on the level of work required. If your procedure involves a brow lift then costs can range anywhere from $2500-$5000 while an upper eyelid will set you back in the vicinity of $1500-$3000.

Risks Of Eye Lift Surgery

Any surgery brings with it risk; you've no doubt heard that a "gazillion" times yet it's true. However, the procedure is in most cases extremely safe and any reputable surgeon or establishment will usually put you through a rigorous screening process before you qualify.

Pain during the procedure is minimal and if there is any pain associated it's during the recovery period which can take up to a fortnight. However, this doesn't mean you'll be in a hospital bed for that length of time; many patients will continue their lives as normal. Recovery usually means waiting for the bruising and swelling to subside.

Do You Qualify For Eye Lift Surgery?

You'll need to see a specialist before any decision can be made. Eye lift surgery will make a huge difference to your appearance however, before a surgeoun can perform any sort of procedure on your eyes, he or she will need to determine if you are suitable. This basically means checking your past medical history and establishing whether there are conditions that would make surgery too risky.
