An Eyelift Can Rejuvenate the Youthful Appearance of Your Eyes

The natural processes of aging can affect your body and the skin on your face in several ways. One of the most common and noticeable changes occurs in the changes in the skin around your eyes. As you age, your skin gradually slows the natural collagen production in the deeper layers of the dermis. This can cause the skin around your eyes and eyelids to sag. Some people also experience fatty deposits of bags to form under their eyes.

Here at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Tennessee, our cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye, 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.

Your surgeon can perform the eyelift during a single outpatient session that requires deep sedation. This means you will need to arrange to have someone drive you home after your appointment.

An eyelift involves making careful incisions following the natural creases and contours of the skin around your eyes. This greatly reduces any noticeable scarring after you’ve healed. Then, incisions will be made around the lower eyelid to gain access to the fatty deposits under your eyes. Excess fat will be removed and the remaining fat will be sculpted to improve the overall contours around the eye and lessen some of the noticeable lines.

During the first few days of 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.
