What Is Lower Eyelid Surgery?

When you look at your face in the mirror, you may notice a number of specific areas that could use a lift here or skin tightening there. One cosmetic procedure that a facial plastic surgeon at  Visione  360, P.A. in El Paso, TX can help you with is lower eyelid surgery. Also known as lower lid blepharoplasty, this surgical procedure improves the appearance of the skin directly under the eye, getting rid of unsightly wrinkles, folds, and bags.

What Is Lower Eyelid Surgery?
If you take a close look at the skin underneath your lower eyelids, you may notice lines wrinkles, creases, and flaps. Some people do not like how this extra skin makes them look—it ages the skin and can make you look tired or worn down. With lower eyelid surgery, your surgeon can remove excess skin to give the area a tighter, firmer appearance.

The Procedure: What to Expect
After administering sedation, the doctor will make a small incision that will allow him to remove fat from unwanted areas and tighten the muscles or reposition the fat around the eyes. Rest assured that your El Paso facial plastic surgeon will take precautions to avoid eye-related complications, like retraction or compartment syndrome. Once finished, the incision is carefully sutured and you can go home the same day to start the healing process.

Lower Eyelid Surgery: After the Appointment
The healing period after lower eyelid surgery is about a week. You’ll eventually see any puffiness or swelling go away, along with any visible incision. If you want to avoid developing more wrinkles under the eyes, avoid overexposure to the sun and use the products recommended by your surgeon each day to keep the skin smooth and taut.
