They say that the eyes are the window to the soul and that eye contact is the most important aspect of a face-to-face conversation. Unfortunately, as you age, the skin around your face and eyes can start to sag. This might also be accompanied by fine lines and small fatty deposits under the eyes. Fortunately, your cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons, can address and correct all of these problems with an eyelift. This outpatient cosmetic procedure can address the droop in your eyelids while also removing excess fatty deposits from under your eyes.
An eyelift might also be performed as part of a facelift procedure. This serves to address multiple areas of concern in one single session.
Since an eyelift requires deep sedation, you will need to have a friend or family member drive you home after your appointment. During the procedure, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons will make incisions that carefully follow the natural creases and contours of the skin around your eyes. This effectively decreases any noticeable scarring once the skin has healed.
Then, he will then make similar incisions around the lower eyelid to gain access to the fatty deposits under your eyes. Excess fat will be removed and remaining fat will be sculpted to improve the overall contours around the eye and lessen some of the noticeable lines.
If you have any natural discoloration in your lower eyelid, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons might recommend a chemical peel to restore the youthful color and tone.
If you have sagging skin, fatty bags under your eyes, or drooping eyelids, you should call Simmons Plastic Surgery at 803-490-7644 to see if you’re a good candidate for an eyelift in Lexington, South Carolina.
