Under eye hollows can have a negative impact on how we perceive ourselves. The deepshallow areas that produce visible shadowsare an unfortunate part of aging and aren’t easily treated with non-surgical methods. At Stein Plastic Surgery, we understand how frustrating under eye hollows can be and how difficult they are to treat. That’s why Dr. Stein enlists the help of blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to help patients achieve instant, yet long-lasting results.
Lower blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that’s done under deep twilight anesthesia(IV sedation). Dr. Stein uses the latest surgical techniques to readjust fat pads while tightening and removing droopy skin that causes deep under eye hollows. He then meticulously works to tighten underlying muscles for long-term results you’ll love. Lower eyelid surgery is virtually painless and takes less than one hour two hours to complete.
Dr. Stein performs surgical procedures in Stein Plastic Surgery’s in-house state-of-the-art nationally accredited surgical facility. You’ll receive luxury care from the moment you walk into the door and throughout your recovery process. Our fully-accredited surgical suites boast the best tools and equipment offering patients the utmost in personal comfort and aesthetics.
Although eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure, you’ll need to take several days to adequately heal. Most patients can return to non-strenuous activities within a few days. Side effects are typically minimal thanks to recent surgical advancements but may include swelling, redness, bruising, tenderness, and/or blurred vision.
Results from Lower Eyelid Surgery
One of the best things about blepharoplasty procedures are the near instant results. While some post-surgical swelling can mask the outcome of your procedure, many patients see a dramatic change the very first day. Eyelid surgery can take 10-15 years off your appearance and has long-term benefits. In fact, most patients are so satisfied with their procedure that they only have one in a lifetime.
Is Lower Blepharoplasty Right for You?
Lower blepharoplasty might be a good fit for you if you’re bothered by dark, or excessive under eye hollows. For patients who would like to achieve total eye rejuvenation can opt for a brow lift andboth upper and lower eyelid lifts. Patients should be in otherwise good general health before undergoing eyelid surgery. The best way to determine your candidacy for the procedure is through an in-person consultation with a board-certified facial plasticsurgeon such as Dr. Stein.
I scheduled s consultant with Dr. Stein for lower blepharoplasty. He was very attentive and knowledgeable and answered my questions without making me feel overlooked. The atmosphere in his practice eased me and I cannot say enough wonderful things about his staff, starting from the receptionist to the procedure area. The results exceeded my expectations and I am so happy with my results. I couldn’t think of any other surgeon that I would trust to perform any of his areas of specialty for me. I highly recommend Dr. Stein to anyone who would be looking for natural looking results and the aftercare is a plus. He called me at home later that day to make sure I was doing ok. Hands down Dr. Stein is the BEST!
