A blepharoplasty and mini facelift are often done at the same time. These two surgeries go together well and are easily performed together. The advantage is that you have only one recovery period and it costs less because you only pay for the facility and anesthesia once.Close Up of Dr. Sturm

Does a mini facelift include the eyes? 

A mini facelift does not include the eyes. This procedure lifts the cheeks, jawline and mid-face.

How long does an eyelid lift last? 

An eyelid lift typically lasts a lifetime, or at least 10 to 15 years because we address droopy eyelids caused by genetics and by age.

Does blepharoplasty change the way you look? 

Blepharoplasty is not a procedure that will make you look like a different person. It will just make you look more rested, relaxed and more youthful. 

How long is the recovery from an eyelid lift and a mini facelift? 

The recovery time from an eyelid lift and a mini facelift is about a week. If we do them separately or together, it takes the same amount of time to get back to your normal activities and get back to work with no one noticing that you’ve had something done.
