The team here at Lake Country Plastic and Hand Surgery offers patients throughout the greater Milwaukee area some of the finest aesthetic enhancement options available. This includes subtle yet effective procedures such as cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), which can leave you looking years younger.
We'd like to take a moment to look at the basics of lower eyelid surgery right now, with a particular focus on how it can address those problematic circles located under the eyes.
How Circles Under Your Eyes Affect Your Overall Appearance
If you have circles under your eyes, it can have a serious negative impact on your overall appearance. These circles under the eyes can leave you looking tired, haggard, worried, or much older than you really are. Circles, bags, and hollows located under the eyes are a common reason why people seek out anti-aging procedures, whether they involve surgery or non-surgical solutions.
About Lower Eyelid Surgery
One of the most popular options for treating the circles and bags under the eyes is lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). By performing a lower eyelid surgery, a plastic surgeon is able to remove loose or sagging skin of the lower eyelid, remove bags under the eyes, and help enhance a patient's overall youthfulness in the process.
Patients can also undergo the procedure to address issues with the upper eyelid, though the lower eyelids will be our primary concern with this particular blog post.
Ideal Candidates for Lower Eyelid Surgery
The best candidates for lower eyelid surgery are people who have issues with their lower eyelids or with bags under their eyes. They should be in good health overall and not suffer from serious health issues that would make a facial surgery procedure a potential health risk. Candidates for lower eyelid surgery should also have realistic expectations about the procedure and what it can achieve, including full knowledge of the risks and benefits that are involved.
What to Expect During Lower Eyelid Surgery
During lower eyelid surgery, patients will be placed under general anesthetic in order to prevent pain and anxiety.
A cosmetic surgeon will carefully make an incision along the lower eyelid just beneath the lower eyelashes. This will help keep the scar from the surgery hidden from view. Through this small incision, a surgeon is able to remove any excess skin or tissue and revise the underlying structures in the eye area. Facial liposuction may be used in some cases to achieve optimal results.
The Results of Lower Eyelid Surgery
After lower eyelid surgery has been performed, patients often look younger, healthier, more refreshed, and more energetic. Their entire face may be enlivened by the procedure since the results can be that dramatic. Scarring is minimal and hard to notice, meaning great results with which patients can be confident.
