Restore the Windows to Your Soul

Your eyes are an integral aspect of your features, contributing directly to your sense of facial harmony…and yet, many of us don’t think of the eyes as being places where the aging process most readily reveals itself. The truth is that facial aging can directly impact your lower eyelids in particular. This condition is typically known as lower eyelid ptosis and is characterized by a sagging or drooping pocket of tissue just below the lower eyelids.

While lower eyelid ptosis might not present any functional impairments to your vision the way upper eyelid ptosis or eyebrow ptosis potentially can, lower eyelid surgery offers patients a number of exciting cosmetic benefits. By smoothing and tightening your lower eyelids, our expert facial plastic surgeons can help you show the world a more youthful look and enjoy an enhanced sense of self-confidence.

At Elite Plastic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeons are excited to bring technical skill and aesthetic excellence to each procedure in equal measure. We’ll work with you to craft a personalized treatment plan that is tailored directly to your cosmetic goals so you can enjoy a look that you’ll absolutely love. To learn more, reach out to Elite Plastic Surgery at our Phoenix or Chandler locations and schedule your consultation today.

When to Consider Lower Eyelid Surgery

Lower eyelid surgery is ideal for just about anyone who is dissatisfied with the appearance of their lower eyelids. Sometimes, these cosmetic frustrations can be caused by the natural aging process, but they can also be present in certain individuals simply due to the nature of their genetic makeup. During your initial consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals and help you explore the treatment options that might be best for you. 

You’re likely to be a great candidate for lower eyelid surgery if you’re interested in addressing any of the following issues:

  • Puffy skin under the eyelids
  • Drooping or sagging below the eyes
  • The presence of fine lines or creases
  • Excess skin beneath the eyes
  • Impacted self-confidence
  • A tired or low-energy appearance

The Lower Eyelid Surgery Experience

Excess Skin

In some cases, lower eyelid surgery is considered due to the presence of excess tissue situated just below the lower eyelid. Our surgeons can carefully remedy this with an incision that is placed just below the lower eyelashes. This enables your surgeon to expertly excise any unwanted tissue that is keeping you from enjoying your ideal appearance.

Unwanted Fat

Fatty tissue can often collect just below the lower eyelid, resulting in the dreaded “eye bags” and contributing to a somewhat tired or run-down appearance. To address this, your surgery will remove the pads of fatty tissue causing your cosmetic frustration without impacting the surrounding muscles, so you can enjoy a smoother contour below your eyes.

Ectropion Repair

Ectropion is a term that refers to a condition in which your lower eyelid turns outward and does not properly connect with your eye in the way that it’s supposed to. This issue can be a common aspect of the natural aging process and can be remedied with lower eyelid surgery. In under an hour, your cosmetic surgeon can address the presence of ectropion.

Recovery After Lower Eyelid Repair

After your lower eyelid repair procedure, you’ll be able to return home and begin the recovery process in comfort, as this surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. We’ll make sure you’re able to heal as comfortably as possible and will also be sure to schedule follow-up appointments that enable us to make sure you’re healing properly.

Most normal activities can be resumed within about a week, and we’ll provide you with clear instructions on what you’ll need to avoid and how to care for your surgical site. After about 10 to 14 days, you should start to feel comfortable enough to rejoin your normal routine, enjoying lasting results that absolutely fill you with confidence.
