Is an Eyelid Lift Part of a Facelift?

A facelift is a popular surgery because it can remove sagging skin and major wrinkles to restore a beautiful, youthful look. During a facelift, Dr. Gonyon will tighten your facial and neck muscles and get rid of excess skin. A facelift can take five to 10 years off your face and completely restore your confidence.

If you’re interested in a facelift, you may be wondering whether an eyelid lift is part of the procedure. This is a great question as the eye area often ages first due to the delicate skin that surrounds it. Although an eyelid lift isn’t usually part of a facelift, you can opt for both procedures simultaneously and rejuvenate your entire face.

Should You Combine an Eyelid Lift with Your Facelift?

There is no hard and fast answer to this question because it really depends on your unique situation and desired goals. The best way to determine whether you should combine an eyelid lift with a facelift is to schedule a private consultation with Dr. Gonyon. He will assess your face and consider genetic, lifestyle habits, sun damage, and your particular concerns before providing you an answer. 

If Dr. Gonyon believes you would benefit from an eyelid lift and facelift at the same time and you choose to move forward with this combo approach, you’ll enjoy a number of benefits. Not only will you save money, but your recovery period also won’t be as long. Most importantly, however, you’ll be left with a dramatic transformation that you’ll love.

What to Expect from a Facelift and Eyelid Lift

A facelift is an outpatient surgery performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Gonyon will make an incision behind the ear around the hairline and remove excess skin, tissue, and fat. Then, he’ll tighten the underlying tissue and muscles and redrape the skin for a smooth, natural look. A facelift usually takes around 4 to 6 hours to complete. 

During an eyelid lift, Dr. Gonyon will remove excess skin folds from the lower and/or upper eyelids. He’ll make incisions to ensure the scars are easily hidden within the natural fold of the eyelids. You may only need a lower eyelid lift or upper eyelid lift or benefit from both and enjoy total rejuvenation in the eye area.
