Your eyes are a prominent feature on your face that depicts how you’re feeling at any given point in time and subtly gives other people a clue as to how approachable you are. Over the course of time, however, they may begin to develop loose skin and fatty deposits that cause them to look droopy and puffy. This can change your entire look in an instant.
There are a number of different reasons why someone may develop puffy eyes. One of the most prominent among them is the natural aging process. They may also be the result of stress, dehydration, allergies, lack of sleep, inherited genetic traits, and more. In order to know the cause for sure, you will need to schedule a consultation with a doctor who will assess your body and the cause behind the problem.
If the problem becomes too severe with no clear solution in sight, there’s always the surgical option. A lower-eyelid blepharoplasty can help you get rid of puffy eyes and boost your youthful allure in one convenient procedure.
What to Expect from a Lower-Eyelid Blepharoplasty Surgery
The lower eyelid surgery specifically targets the lower region of the eyelids to help eliminate any puffiness that occurs in the area. It is a great solution for those who don’t require the full extent of a full blepharoplasty, but want to solve minor issues in the lower eye region.
When undergoing the surgery, you will want to make sure to work with a highly skilled surgeon who has a history of performing the procedure. This surgery requires skill and precision and you wouldn’t want to go to just anyone.
To begin this procedure, your doctor will make a strategically placed incision in the lower crease of the eyes to help keep any resulting post-surgical marks hidden from view. This will help to ensure a beautiful end result.
Through the incision, your doctor will remove any excess skin and fat in the region and reposition the remaining tissues to fit the new look of your eyes.
What to Expect After the Lower-Blepharoplasty Surgery
After the surgery is completed, your doctor will close the incisions so that they can heal properly. There is a period of downtime to expect that you can discuss with your doctor. The time varies from patient to patient, but it will typically last about two weeks after the procedure. During this time, it is advised that you avoid strenuous physical activities and straining your eyes. By following these instructions, you increase your chances of healing quickly and obtaining outstanding results.
