Laser Eyelid Lift Surgery

(Laser Blepharoplasty)

One of the most advanced plastic surgery procedures being done today by a small number of super-specialized facial plastic surgeons nationwide is laser blepharoplasty, also known as laser eyelid surgery or laser lid lift.


Achieving beautiful eyes is key to achieving a naturally youthful face.

— Dr. Ruth Hill Yeilding


Blepharoplasty is a high art. Achieving an attractive aesthetic outcome that is natural and youthful is one of the most challenging tasks in plastic surgery. Detailed knowledge of the of the complex network of facial muscles, facial nerves, and facial blood vessels, especially those near the highly sensitive eye, is the domain of a super-specialized surgeon.

Dr. Yeilding has perfected her laser lid lift by first becoming a Board-Certified Ophthalmologist, expert in the eye and surrounding facial anatomy, and then achieving a second Board Certification in Facial Cosmetic Surgery after completing intensive oculoplastic and facial plastic surgical training during her fellowship.*

The Laser Difference

Dr. Yeilding’s laser lid lift, or laser blepharoplasty uses the laser as a pin point laser scalpel to make incisions that are precise and have favorable wound healing, for minimal scaring.*

Dr Yeilding will eliminate excess upper eyelid skin using her laser scapel and will sculpt lower lid fat pads to eliminate lower lid bags. She also uses the laser in scanning mode to resurface the lower eye lid, which causes the skin to tighten and be rejuvenated.*

Although it is not possible to get Elizabeth Taylor’s or Angelina Jolie’s eyes, Dr. Yeilding believes every patient has their own natural beauty which can be enhanced by undoing some of the aging effects of father time. Aging causes puffiness, sagging, droopiness, & wrinkles which degrade our natural youthful beauty. The good news is this can be significantly improved by a skilled surgeon with that magic combination of a conservative but confident technique. Dr. Yeilding’s extensive surgical experience in laser blepharoplasty surgery and demonstrated excellent before & after gallery results can help patients feel more at ease in making and living with these important surgical decisions.*

In your consultation with Dr. Yeilding you will be asked about your concerns, feelings and desires about your facial appearance. Dr. Yeilding will conduct a clinical analysis of your face and skin. She will evaluate your facial proportions, skin type and texture as well as muscle functions. Dr. Yeilding will use her best judgment and experience to provide her recommendation for you to most realistically meet your goals.

There is no reason to spend another day looking tired, sad, angry or just plain old when you can take the next step and make an appointment to get an expert laser lid lift (blepharoplasty) consultation with Dr. Yeilding.
