Does a Facelift Include the Eyes?

Facelift surgery or a mini facelift typically addresses the jowls, jawline, and some of the neck. The deep plane aspect of a facelift will also lift portions of the mid face. The neck can be addressed with a neck lift or face and neck lift.

Eyelid surgery addresses excess upper or lower eyelid skin and also can treat the lower eyelid bags. Upper blepharoplasty removes excess skin from the upper eyelid and provide a more rested refreshed appearance to the eyes. Lower eyelid bags surgery removes excess fat and creates a softer more rejuvenated look while tightening the skin as well.

Eyelid surgery is a separate procedure from a facelift. Eyelid surgery and facelift surgery are frequently performed at the same time.
