Aging can really affect the eyes. Your once wide-open, sparkling eyes become droopy with bags underneath. What can be done to relieve this tired, baggy look?
We can regain the youth in the eye area. We perform procedures that lift the upper lids, remove bags from the lower part of the eyes, and, in some cases, you might be a candidate for a special procedure where we not only repair the lower eyes but also perform a cheek lift. The procedure is called a lower blepharoplasty combined with a mid-facelift.
There are several ways these procedures can be performed. Most procedures will be performed in the office, usually with local anesthesia.
After your procedure is complete, you will have a short recovery time based on the exact procedure. Because lasers can be used to complete the surgeries, there will be little bruising, swelling, or other complications associated with the surgery. If the laser is the only instrument used, you will most likely be able to get back to work in a day or two. If more complicated surgery, such as the mid-facelift, is performed, you will most likely have to miss work for at least a week. Again, even with the more complicated surgery, there will be minimal swelling, bruising, and pain.
