Eyelid Lifts in Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs, CA
If you have noticeable wrinkles or excess, loose skin around your eyelids, eyebrows, or forehead, Dr. Sofonio provides eyelid lifts for patients of all ages in the Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs area. Eyelid lifts may be performed on your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both depending on your desired results. Some patients may also benefit from a mini lower eyelid tuck instead of a full eyelid lift, which can be less invasive with minimal recovery time required after the procedure.
* Please Note: Individual results may vary.
What to Expect During Your Eyelid Lift Procedure
An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, can help you remove loose or sagging skin impairing your vision. It can also help reduce the appearance of bags under your eyes, drooping lower eyelids, fatty deposits that make your eyelids look puffy, and fine lines and wrinkles from around your eyelids. During an upper eyelid lift, Dr. Sofonio will make a minor incision along the natural crease of your eyelid. During a lower eyelid lift, Dr. Sofonio will make a slight incision just below your lower eyelash line. A mini eyelid tuck will require even shorter incisions. No matter which procedure you have done, your incisions will be closed using sutures that may be removed about a week later.
Post-Treatment Care and Expected Eyelid Lift Results
Lubricating ointments and cold compresses may be used after surgery to aid in your recovery. You’ll also need to refrain from exposing your incisions to excessive force during the healing process, and you’ll need to protect your eyes and skin from the sun as much as possible to maintain your results. Because you’ll continue to age and your skin will lose elasticity over time, we may recommend future eyelid lifts to help you maintain a more youthful appearance.
