Why Combining a Facelift With Eyelid Surgery Is a Win-Win

If you only have facial aging concerns in one area of your face, you may be a good candidate for a single procedure such as eyelid surgery or a facelift. However, many patients express aging concerns that include the eye area and the lower face. At her practice in Austin, Texas, Dr. Malena Amato might recommend combining eyelid surgery with a midface-lift procedure to help save you time, money, and to achieve the full results that you desire.

What Is a Midface-Lift?

A midface-lift, also known as a cheek lift, aims to address and correct these signs of aging:

  • Wrinkles on the cheeks
  • Deep hollows underneath the eyes
  • Folds and lines around the mouth
  • Overall improvement of the midface and cheek area

Dr. Amato also offers the non-invasive option of a liquid facelift, a procedure that combines multiple injectable treatments into a single process. It is not permanent like the midface-lift surgery would be, but it does help lift patients’ facial features, smooth wrinkles, and restore lost volume.

Enhancing With Eyelid Surgery

Facelifts only target the middle and lower face, so concerns around the eyes typically go unaddressed. Eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, can complete your total facial rejuvenation by lifting and smoothing sagging eyelids and reducing the appearance of puffy underage bags.

Dr. Amato offers an upper blepharoplasty and a lower blepharoplasty. The upper eyelid lift repairs the form and function of eyelids affected by ptosis (drooping eyelid muscles) or sagging skin. This surgery can help restore a youthful, vibrant look to the eyes and widen your peripheral vision.

The lower blepharoplasty focuses on the reduction of undereye bags, hollowness, and skin laxity. Cosmetically, it’s excellent for reducing wrinkles and folds around the eyes and creating a vibrant, rested, and youthful aesthetic.

You can also choose to have a bilateral upper/lower blepharoplasty that addresses your upper and lower lids simultaneously.

Dr. Amato performs combined procedures using local anesthesia and oral sedation, making it simple and convenient for you to undergo a facelift and an eyelid lift at the same time. You can look forward to achieving more comprehensive results on the upper and lower portions of your face.

Benefits of Combining Surgical Procedures

There are multiple benefits to having more than one facial procedure performed simultaneously.

  • A full-face rejuvenation
  • Cohesive, balanced results. You won’t have a youthful face paired with aged eyes, or vice versa.
  • Less recovery time
  • You’ll only have one physical or mental preparation period before your surgery.
  • The effects of one procedure will enhance the other.
