A brighter face with an eyelid lift in Kirkland, WA

It is often said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. They are certainly one of the most aesthetically important facial features, impacting a person’s overall appearance and conveying the nuances of emotion. Not surprisingly, drooping in the eye area significantly ages one’s face, and might even give the appearance of perpetual fatigue. An eyelid lift procedure from Dr. Tseng can rejuvenate the upper or lower lids, or both. He offers this procedure at his practices in Auburn, and Kirkland, WA.

What an eyelid lift procedure can do for you?

The benefits of an eyelid lift include:

  • Antiaging – No matter how well you maintain your skin, sagging and wrinkling around the eyes can age your entire facial appearance. A blepharoplasty will tighten loose tissue and remove excess eyelid skin, creating a firmer, smoother, younger appearance.
  • Perk up tired eyes – You are filled with energy and enthusiasm, but it is not reflected in your eyes. Fatty deposits, lax skin, and undereye bags can cause a person to look tired all the time. Removal of excess fat and tightening of skin can make the eyes appear bright and alert.
  • Improve vision – In some cases, the upper eyelid begins drooping due to loose skin and fatty deposits. This condition, known as hooding, may be a purely cosmetic concern if it is mild. However, for many people it obscures their vision, sometimes significantly. Hooded eye surgery corrects drooping, giving the eyes a more open appearance and restoring the individual’s full range of vision.

About eyelid surgery

Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure, performed under anesthesia for your comfort. Dr. Tseng takes great care to locate incisions discreetly, so that you will not be left with noticeable scarring. They are typically in the natural crease for upper eyelid surgery, or along the lash line for lower eyelid surgery.

After surgery, you can expect about ten days of downtime. Mild bruising and swelling may continue for a couple of weeks but will gradually subside. Results will continue to improve for several months to a year after surgery.
