Whether from exhaustion or age, bags under the eyes are an unwelcome sight in the mornings. They are even worse when they persist throughout the day or after a whole night’s rest. Sometimes home remedies and makeup are not enough to cover the falsified proof of a sleepless night. Eyelid lifts, also known as blepharoplasty, improve bags under the eyes in one quick surgery.
How to Improve Bags Under Your Eyes
Lower blepharoplasty, commonly known as lower eyelid lifts, turns back the clock by rearranging fat pads under the eyes and tightening the skin. As you age, your skin loosens, and the fat pads shift, resulting in a perpetual appearance of being tired. By pulling the skin tight and moving the fat pads to their original youthful position, you will be able to enjoy lively and vivacious appearances again.
Dr. Stein uses twilight anesthesia for lower eyelid lifts. Small incisions are made in the creases of the eyes that won’t be noticeable once healed. Dr. Stein moves the fat pads as needed and tightens the skin, removing the excess. Dr. Stein will renew your eyes to the vibrant, youthful complexion you enjoyed for many years before in under an hour.
You may experience blurry vision for a day or two and will be able to return home the same day with the help of a friend or family member. You’ll only need to take a few days off from work. Within two weeks, you’ll be able to return to your routine.
Lower eyelid lifts treat what topical creams and healthy lifestyles cannot. Age cannot be stopped, but blepharoplasty reduces signs of aging by removing drooping skin and redistributing fat pads.
You will notice a brightened appearance and a lively look in your eyes between two to four weeks. Lower eyelid lifts are typically a one-time procedure. You likely will never need to repeat the surgery. Some people combine lower eyelid lifts with upper eyelid lifts for a more dramatic rejuvenation.
