A Combined Facelift And Eyelid Surgery – Is It Possible?

Over time, you’ll notice that your eyes start to droop, with loose skin forming around the eyelids. As if that’s not enough, nasolabial folds (thin lines on either side between your mouth and nose) will deepen by the day. The problem with ageing is that it affects more than one part of the face concurrently.

Most patients who visit Mr Shaheel Chummun are worried about visible signs of ageing on their lower and upper faces. Many times, they request a facelift or an eyelid lift, also known as a blepharoplasty. In each case, the aim is to enhance the face’s youthful appearance without looking overdone.

What is a combined facelift and eyelid surgery?

A facelift can be customised, depending on the patient’s needs. The cosmetic surgical process targets the lower section of the face and the neck, leaving out the forehead and the eyelids. But an experienced aesthetic surgeon can combine a facelift with another procedure to bring forth more long-lasting outcomes.

In recent years, the face fitness trend has largely been centred on a combination of techniques to attain full facial revitalisation. If you want a complete facial rejuvenation, consider adding blepharoplasty to the procedure for superior results. Eyelid surgery eliminates excess fat and tissues from the lower and upper eyelids that can make you look as if you’ve got puffy bags around your eyes.

Do you qualify for a combined facelift and eyelid lift?

You are the perfect candidate for the combined surgery if you have shown multiple signs of an ageing face, such as:

  • Moderate or severe wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Sagging skin/crepey skin under the eyes
  • Vertical neck banding
  • Under-eye puffiness
  • Age-related muscle loss
  • Hooded upper eyelids
  • Jowls

During your consultation, Dr Chummun will help you decide if combination surgery is a good option for you. He will figure out how each process will affect the entire face before initiating the process.

Benefits of a combined facelift and eyelid surgery

Most anti-ageing surgeons only treat the lower and middle parts of the face. Recently, the facelift and eyelid lift combination has gained popularity because most people have realised the following benefits go hand in hand.

  • Youthful appearance: Having your lower, middle, and upper face enhanced simultaneously can give you a balanced appearance. You can expect a more refreshed and younger-looking face without consulting multiple surgeons. There’s no greater joy than achieving brighter eyes and tight lower facial contours.
  • Economic benefits: Combining a facelift with blepharoplasty not only gives dramatic results but also saves your budget. Not to mention, the recovery time will be greatly reduced since your lower face and eyelids will be recovering at the same time. It also means you will need less anaesthesia.

A facelift can be a life-changing experience, but it would be more effective if you underwent an eyelid lift at the same time. It is best to consult Mr Shaheel Chummun regarding this procedure.
