Feeling like you look older and more tired than you feel can be devastating to your self-esteem and confidence. If aging has caused bags and puffiness to appear beneath your eyes, then eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the lower eyelids to a younger, fresher appearance. To find out if you are a candidate for our Philadelphia Main Line and Wayne, PA lower eyelid surgical procedure, please call Morgenstern Center for Orbital and Facial Plastic Surgery at 610.687.8771.
What is Lower Eyelid Surgery?
Lower eyelid surgery restores a youthful eye appearance. You may benefit from lower blepharoplasty if you have:
- Bags beneath your eyes
- Fines lines on the lower eyelid
- Puffiness below the eyes
- Excessive fat deposits beneath the eyes
Upper eyelid surgery may be combined with lower lid blepharoplasty, depending on your goals and other factors. In all cases, our experienced oculoplastic surgeons will achieve a natural looking result in which the lower and upper eyelids have a harmonious and balanced appearance, which may or may not require both upper and lower blepharoplasty. You and one of our oculo-facial surgeons will discuss your options during your individualized, one-on-one consultation at our comfortable, private office.
In lower lid surgery, an incision will be made either in your lower lash line or on the inside of the lower lid effectively hiding any scar. The incision location depends on what you and your surgeon plan to accomplish with the procedure. Oftentimes we combine this surgery with a CO2 Laser treatment to help tighten the skin of the lower lid. Although lower eyelid surgery is a fairly common procedure, it is important to choose a surgeon well qualified in performing surgeries around the eyes. For natural looking results, it is important that the surgeon remove the right amount of fat and skin without removing too much. Our eyelid surgeons are uniquely trained and experienced in facial and eye-area surgeries.
Lower Blepharoplasty Candidates
You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you are:
- Unhappy with bags, puffiness and/or fine lines beneath your eyes
- Interested in restoring a more youthful eye appearance
- Ready to accept the risks, benefits and recovery time associated with the procedure
During your consultation, you can discuss with one of our surgeons exactly what you are unhappy with and what you would like to change. After evaluating your face and eyes, the surgeon can tell you whether eyelid surgery or another procedure is capable of achieving the outcome you have in mind. We want each of our patients to be fully informed, and Dr. Morgenstern and Dr. Giacometti take personalized time with you to help you understand all of your options for rejuvenating the area around your eyes.
