What Is a Lower Blepharoplasty?
Lower eyelid surgery focuses on the lower eyelid and the area right under it, building cosmetic enhancements to rejuvenate your appearance. Some of the major signs of aging tend to appear in this area, such as thin skin, uneven pockets of fat, and the appearance of dark circles. This procedure can tighten tissues, remove or relocate pockets of fat, and adjust muscles to create a smooth, youthful look. If your facial appearance has begun to take on a tired look, this procedure may be what you need to get back to looking and feeling your best.

What Is the Procedure Like?
Every lower eyelid surgery is slightly different since we adapt every step to match your treatment plan and aesthetic goals. However, the general outline remains similar, with most surgeries lasting about 1-2 hours. During this time, we will ensure that you are comfortable through anesthesia or sedation, depending on what best matches your health and comfort needs. After Dr. Sykes finishes your procedure and ensures your eyelids are going to look fantastic, you will be free to go home, as long as someone drives you.
The Recovery Process
Most patients will spend about 1-2 weeks off work and at home resting, letting their body recover. This period is very important, as better healing means better results in the long run. For the first week or two, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort at the surgery areas, but this gradually fades. Each factor can also easily be managed with the right medication. Dr. Sykes and his team are always here for you while you recover, and any help or answers to questions are only ever a phone call away.
When Can I See Results?
Lower eyelid surgery works by making changes right away. However, it is important to remember that your final results will be most evident after you finish your recovery period. For most patients, the swelling and redness most go away within a week or two. Still, it can take a bit longer for it to fully go away, after which you can see your final results: a brighter, more alert, and youthful look. While we can't yet stop the aging process all the way, there are ways to keep your lower eyelid results looking great for years to come.
