Your eyes are one of your most noticeable features, so when they start to droop and look tired, the effect is hard to ignore. The good news is that you can easily “wake up” your eyes through blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelift. Many people undergo eyelift procedures to fix drooping eyelids, lines, and puffiness.
The eyelid procedure available at Simmons Plastic Surgery is designed to address the droop in your eyelids and remove excess fatty deposits from under your eyes, restoring your youthful and alert appearance. It’s not uncommon for people having a facelift to also include an eyelift to address multiple areas of concern in one single procedure.
Here at Simmons Plastic Surgery, eyelift procedures are often 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.
During the eyelift procedure, Simmons Plastic Surgery 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.
In addition to its aesthetic benefits, blepharoplasty can improve your field of vision and correct functional issues with your eyelids.
Your eyes should reflect your passion and spirit. We want you to feel confident in your body, which is why we invite you to contact Simmons Plastic Surgery at 803-490-7644 if you have any questions or want to schedule an appointment.
