Benefits of Lower Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
A lower eyelid lift can refresh the appearance of your eyes by addressing key signs of aging in the undereye area. As we age, the thin skin beneath the eyes loses its elasticity and can begin to wrinkle and sag. Fat deposits can also develop beneath the eyes, adding volume to undereye bags. Often, the men and women who come to Dr. Matthew White seeking lower eyelid surgery say that their eyes have begun to make them look older and more tired than they feel. These patients desire a smoother, lifted and more youthful undereye area, and, in many cases, they opt to combine the procedure with upper eyelid surgery to accomplish comprehensive rejuvenation of the eyes.
Benefits of lower blepharoplasty include:
- Reduction of wrinkles beneath the eyes
- Lift and removal of excess skin beneath the eyes
- Removal of fat deposits
- Reduction in the prominence of undereye bags
- Smoother lower eye contour
For some patients, aging of the eyes can lead to fat volume loss and/or a condition known as tear trough deformity, which creates a hollow appearance or distortion beneath the eyes. Lower eyelid lift alone cannot address this characteristic, however fat transfer methods or dermal fillers can be combined with blepharoplasty to fully restore a more youthful appearance. During a consultation with Dr. White, he can evaluate your cosmetic concerns and determine the best course of action for delivering the results you desire.
