Are Your Eyes Aging?

650_iStock-000017991875SmallAging 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.

To find out if you are a candidate for surgery, give us a call!

Please take note below of the ways that we are available to you over the next couple of weeks:

  • Appointments:Dr. Kearney will still be seeing a small number of post operative appointments over the next couple of weeks as well as any patients that require immediate attention or medical care, by appointment only. We are calling and emailing all patients who currently have appointments scheduled in the next 2 weeks to notify them and reschedule

We apologize for any inconvenience the above changes may cause and are hoping things return to “normal” as soon as possible. Please stay safe and healthy and let’s all try to remain as positive as possible during this time of uncertainty.
