What on earth is the Lowcountry Lid Lift®?
It’s Dr. Funcik’s unique approach to an eyelid lift that will make people say, “You look so good, so rested!” It involves artistic and artisan re-sculpting of the soft tissues about the eye, and the latest technologically advanced techniques to replace the soft youthful fullness to make your eyes look how they appeared when you were younger.

Do people ask, “Are you tired? Do you feel OK?” Does the early morning eyelid puffiness hang longer than it used to? Are your eyes more wrinkled than the rest of your face?
While commonly performed eyelid lift and blepharoplasty surgeries in Charleston can improve the eye’s appearance, they often don’t address the other effects of aging around the eye, such as wrinkles, sagging brows, and volume loss. For this reason, a typical eyelid lift and blepharoplasty is a partial solution that offers limited results.
Dr. Funcik’s Lowcountry Lid Lift, or in simpler terms his unique approach to an eyelid lift, is a highly customized solution that addresses all of the factors of aging in the eye area. By taking this comprehensive approach, the results are frequently more dramatic and look more natural than the common Charleston eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) — without increasing recovery time.
This is exactly what a Lowcountry Lid Lift® involves with Charleston’s Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Funcik:
- The procedure is performed in our AAAHC Accredited Private Operating Suite with the comfort and safety of IV sedation.
- Excess skin and fat are artistically removed
- If also indicated:
- Tylenol is usually sufficient for pain
- Most patients make their appointment on a Friday, have their stitches out five days later, and are back to work the following week.
With Dr. Funcik’s unique approach to eyelid lifts, The Lowcountry Lid Lift is the most popular surgery he performs while having one of the highest rates of patient satisfaction in Charleston, SC.
Many people are able to look years younger, just by having an eyelid lift performed by Dr. Funcik. And because our eyes are the primary focal point in interactions with others, the impact of correcting the eye area is greater than with other areas of the face, such as the neck and lip lines.
Low cost, risk, and recovery time
While the benefits of an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) are dramatic, the recovery is relatively simple and uncomplicated and the cost is less than just about all other procedures. In fact, cost, recovery, discomfort, and risk of complications are only about one third of what patients may experience when addressing the other issues, such as neck laxity.
When should I have my eyelids done?
Many times we hear patients say they are waiting for a certain age to have their lids done. It most certainly is your decision to make. But no plastic surgeon in Charleston or anywhere for that matter should tell you when it is your time. We perform the Lowcountry Lid Lift from ages 28 to 88. If your eyelids bother you at whatever age, you should go ahead and consider the procedure. You will never “have” to have them done again, and your eyelids will look better in forty years compared to your twin sister who never had it done! Follow your heart, mind and gut, and ask yourself if laying low for a week in the near future is worth it to get rid of your tired look.
Trust your eyes to a specialist in eyelid lifts and blepharoplasty
A less experienced surgeon will often try to enhance results by performing a more aggressive surgery. This results in an overdone, unnatural look that can be distracting, with male eyelids that appear feminized and female eyelids that appear lowered and retracted.
To avoid these sometimes-uncorrectable blunders, eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) must be performed with high proficiency. As an experienced double board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Charleston, Dr. Funcik has that high proficiency. Dr. Funcik has performed over 500 eyelid lifts. His comprehensive approach is proven successful in providing a look that’s more youthful, refreshed, and completely natural.
To schedule your consultation, please call (843) 884-3277. If you are seriously considering an eyelid lift and would like to know more about The Lowcountry Lid Lift, we can also arrange an opportunity to talk with a patient who has undergone the procedure and his or her personal experience.
