Uppers and Lowers: Four Lid Surgery

Eyelid surgery alone can take years off your appearance.  The patient shown here is 74 years young.

The Basics

Although four lid surgery involves operating on both the upper and lower eyelids, it can reduce overall surgical downtime compared to having separate procedures. By addressing all four lids in a single surgery, patients can go through one recovery period instead of two, streamlining the healing process. This approach can be more convenient for those with busy schedules, allowing them to return to their normal activities sooner while enjoying the benefits of a complete eyelid rejuvenation.

Who is a good candidate?

A good candidate for four lid surgery (quadruple blepharoplasty) is someone who has both sagging upper eyelids and puffy under-eye bags. These issues often occur with age as skin loses elasticity and fat accumulates in the eyelid area, leading to a tired or aged appearance. By addressing both upper and lower eyelids, candidates can achieve a more youthful and refreshed look.
