Have a More Alert Appearance With an Eyelift

The natural processes of aging result in a reduction of collagen in your skin. When this happens your skin gradually loses its elasticity. This can cause lines around eyes and even cause your eyelids that droop. While this occurs, it’s also natural for you to develop fatty deposits around the eyes.

Here at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Tennessee our cosmetic surgeons can address these issues by performing an eyelift. You might also be interested in having a facelift performed in conjunction with an eyelift to address multiple related issues in a single procedure.

The cosmetic surgeon can perform the eyelift during a single outpatient session that requiring deep sedation. This means you will need to arrange to have someone drive you, and help you out at home while you get back on your feet.

During the eyelift, the surgeon will make careful incisions that follow the natural creases and contours of the skin around your eyes. This greatly reduces any noticeable scarring later on. Then incisions are made around the lower eyelid to gain access to the fatty deposits under your eyes. Excess fat is removed and remaining fat is sculpted to improve the overall contours around the eye and lessen some of the noticeable lines.

Early on in the recovery process you might experience minor bruising and swelling. This will naturally diminish with time. A chemical or laser peel might also be recommended to reduce any natural discoloration in your lower eyelid.

If you have bags or sagging skin around your eyes you should call Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Tennessee’s offices in Clarksville, Tennessee at 866.234.0470 to ask about an eyelift.
