An eyelid lift is done for cosmetic purposes and for those who have excessively drooping eyelids that may interfere with vision. In certain cases it is done along with other facial surgery such as a browlift or facelift.

Sagging or drooping of eyelids could occur naturally and with age. Some people have this at birth or develop diseases such as myasthenia gravis that cause eyelids to droop. This procedure is usually done with the patient awake. A medicine to relive anxiety is given. The area around the eyelids are numbed by injecting medicine so as to avoid pain during the surgery. Tiny cuts are made into the natural creases or folds of the eyelids and loose skin and extra fat tissue are removed. The stitches are closed after suitably tightening the eyelid muscles. This procedure is done as an outpatient and does not require hospitalization.

Scars may remain slightly pink for 6 months or more after surgery. They will fade eventually to a thin, nearly invisible white line. The more alert and youthful look usually lasts for years. Hospitalization is not required and patients can leave home the same day. The eyes will be covered with ointment and a bandage and may feel tight and sore as the local anesthesia wears off. Placing cold packs over the area helps control swelling and bruising.

Vision would be proper after 2 to 3 days. One needs to avoid wearing contact lenses for at least 2 weeks and keep activities that could raise the blood pressure for about 3 weeks which includes lifting, bending and rigorous sports.

Stitches will be removed within a week, though some discomfort may last for 2 to 4 weeks. You may notice increased tears, increased sensitivity to light and wind and temporary vision changes (such as blurring or double vision) for the first few weeks.
