Lower Eyelid Surgery Las Vegas
Questions about lower eyelid surgery? If you got eight or more hours of sleep last night, yet you still see bags under your eyes when you look in the mirror, you may be a great candidate for lower eyelid surgery. Loose, sagging skin below the eyes can make you look older than you are and more tired than you feel! A simple procedure, lower eyelid surgery can help you look and feel younger in a minimal amount of time.
Lower eyelid surgery corrects extra fullness and loose skin in and around the lower eyelids. This procedure can also help correct hollowness left between the cheek and the lower lid that results in an older overall look.
Candidates for Lower Eyelid Surgery
Both men and women who are in good health may be good candidates for lower eyelid surgery. It’s important that anyone considering a cosmetic procedure has reasonable and realistic expectations for the procedure. Those patients interested specifically in lower eyelid surgery should also be in good ophthalmic health and free of any conditions that could complicate the surgery – like chronic dry eyes.
About the Lower Eyelid Surgery Procedure
During your lower eyelid surgery, your surgeon will make small incisions just below your lower lash line. These incisions are usually hidden by skin creases and the lower lashes. Your surgeon then removes excess skin, muscle and fat from below the eye. If necessary, your surgeon may redistribute some of the fat in order to minimize unevenly hollow patches of skin.
Using local or general anesthesia, lower eyelid surgery is usually pain-free. However, after your surgery, you’ll need to take some time to rest and heal. You’ll need to keep your head elevated for several days, and you may need to use cold compresses to reduce swelling and discomfort. We’ll remove your stitches within a few days of surgery; however, you may experience some differences in your vision for the first week or so after your procedure.
