Eyelifts Can Restore the Youthful Appearance of Your Eyes

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that over 200,000 eye lifts are performed in an average year. As you age your skin naturally suffers from a reduction of collagen. This has many effects through your face and body. One of the more prominent changes is the skin around your eyes losing elasticity.

In time lines start to develop around eyes. For some people this also results in eyelids that droop. Many people also develop fatty deposits around their eyes. Some people also develop unsightly fatty deposits under their eyes.

Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye can perform an eyelift to address the droop in your eye lids and remove excess fatty deposits from under your eyes, restoring your youthful and alert appearance. In a fair number of cases, some people will have an eyelift performed in conjunction with a facelift procedure. This helps to address multiple areas of concern in one single procedure.

An eye lift is usually performed on an outpatient basis, requiring deep sedation. You will need to arrange to have someone drive you, and help you out at home while you get back on your feet.

Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye 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.

It’s quite common for you to 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 questions about getting an eyelift procedure, you should call Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye to set up a consultation.
