A facelift is a wonderful solution for addressing fine lines and wrinkles and making the skin appear tight and healthy. However, this procedure only targets areas in the middle and lower regions of your face. An eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, removes excess skin to brighten and open up the eyes, providing a youthful look. Combining a facelift with eyelid surgery can completely transform your appearance and create a more cohesive look.
What Are the Benefits of Combining Facelift and Eyelid Surgery?
Done separately, a facelift and eyelid surgery deliver beautiful results, but together, they can provide a complete transformation. The benefits of combining the two procedures include the following:
Address Multiple Signs of Aging
Since a facelift targets the middle and lower regions of the face, and eyelid surgery can target the upper or lower eyelids, they can be combined to address multiple signs of aging and transform the face.
Additionally, combining the two procedures can create a balanced appearance. Addressing the lower and middle regions of the face can provide pleasing results, but they may leave the upper regions imbalanced in comparison. Together they may create a symmetrical and refreshing image.
Reduce Recovery Time
If you opt to have a facelift or eye surgery now and then the other procedure later on, you will have to undergo more recovery time. This also means more time away from work and other activities. By having both procedures at once, you can recover from them at the same and get back to your life sooner.
Achieve Results Quicker
In addition to reducing recovery time, you can also achieve the look you are going for faster. If you choose to have one procedure done, you have to undergo the recovery time before you can begin the next, but by combining them, you can achieve the results you want without having to undergo separate procedures.
