Eye Lid Lift~ Eyelid Surgery

Eye Lid Lift Columbus, Ohio (Blepharoplasty)

The skin of your eyelids is the thinnest skin of your face. Thin skin has little collagen elasticity and is more susceptible to aging changes and sun damage. Whenever we blink (as we do thousands of times a day) or close our eyes, we are stretching the eyelid skin. Eventually, this skin lengthens, creating extra folds. Women often notice this extra skin when applying makeup.

For both women and men alike, the extra eyelid skin can lapse over the upper lids and eyelashes, leading to a droopy appearance. The mid-facial tissue support also weakens, contributing to a long, tired look.

Why have an Eyelid Lift?

Whether you desire an eyelid lift surgery for functional or cosmetic reasons, your choice of a qualified facial plastic surgeon is of paramount importance. During your pre-surgical consultation, Dr. Michael Sullivan will examine you and ask questions concerning your vision, tear production, use of lenses, and your desires for Eyelid surgery. Dr. Sullivan will explain what you can expect from blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery and take a complete medical history. Your age, skin type, ethnic background, and degree of vision obstruction are factors that must be taken into consideration.

People with circulatory, ophthalmological, or serious medical conditions must rely on their own personal specialists to determine whether blepharoplasty is an option. A consultation with a Columbus facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Sullivan can help you decide whether any additional, complementary surgery can increase the success of the surgery. Dr. Sullivan might, for example, recommend a simultaneous forehead lift to correct a drooping brow or skin resurfacing to remove the fine-line wrinkling around your eyes.

During your consultation, he will examine you to determine whether you may need a lower eyelid lift, an upper eyelid lift or both. After you and Dr. Sullivan make a mutual decision to proceed with your eyelid surgery, he will discuss with you the technique indicated for your individual eyelid surgery outlining the type of anesthesia, the surgical facility, any supportive surgery, and the risks and costs of the procedure.

49 Yo, Granny Eyelids Had to Go! Columbus, OH


Dr Mike is like a fine artist (I found out he does sculpture in his spare time and it figures), he is very precise and concerned to make sure you know exactly what is going on and what to expect. He and his team are just amazing. You just want to hang out with them which, frankly, I wouldn’t normally say about a medical practice!

Hooded Eyelids Be Gone! Columbus, OH


Dr. Sullivan is a great surgeon and also very personable. What I like best about him, besides his surgical skills, is that he would not perform surgery that he thought I was not ready for. I really valued that feedback, as it showed he cared more about my face than making money. Such integrity. I trust him implicitly.
