Home General Upper-Eyelid Lift: Will There Be Noticeable Post-Surgical Marks?

September 1, 2017

When it comes to achieving natural-looking results with an upper-eyelid lift, the most important factor is the location of the incision. If post-surgical marks are visible, it can ruin the quality of your results and will be an obvious sign that you had surgery performed.

The incision location for the upper-eyelid lift is in the natural crease at the top of your upper eyelid. Making it along this crease ensures that any post-surgical marks will be well-hidden. Once you have fully healed from your procedure, there should be no noticeable traces that you have had surgery performed on your upper eyelids.
