Should I have eyelid surgery with my facelift?

Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery is a common procedure that I perform along with a facelift. Enhancing and rejuvenating the eyes provides harmony and balance to the remainder of the face. A facelift or face and neck lift provides improvement to the jawline and neck and treats jowling, neck skin laxity, and a more youthful lower face and neck.

Frequently, if the eyelids are not addressed at the time of a facelift, there may be disharmony between the upper and lower face. This can sometimes cause some discord and an unbalanced appearance to the face.
