You may feel that your eyes look tired and puffy. Lower eyelid surgery could reduce the bags and puffiness beneath your eyes. Helping you to achieve a more youthful appearance.
The skin under the eye is very thin and as we age the muscles around the eye weaken and the fat deposits shift. In addition, the collagen in skin starts to breakdown and in time the skin loses it elasticity.
There are two different types of lower eye lid surgery to remove the fat deposits from beneath the eyes.
Outside – An incision is made outside the lower eyelid. It removes excess skin, fat deposits and sometimes muscle tissue from beneath the eye.
Inside – A single incision is made inside the lower eyelid. It is for those who have fatty deposits which need removing but do not have any excess skin.
Seven to ten days after surgery you should see an improvement and you will have brighter eyes with the youthful look you desire.
