Bright Eyes: A Look at Surgery to Improve Your Under Eye Appearance


Have you ever been told you look tired or older than your actual age? This may be due to bags or drooping skin under your eyes. One option to correct this is lower eyelid surgery, also known as lower blepharoplasty.

During the procedure, excess fat, skin, and muscle are removed or repositioned to create a smoother and more youthful appearance. It can also improve vision obstructed by sagging skin.

Recovery typically takes one to two weeks and includes swelling and bruising. Pain medication and cold compresses can help manage discomfort.

Like any surgery, there are risks such as infection, bleeding, and nerve damage. It is important to choose a qualified and experienced surgeon, and to follow all pre and post-operative instructions.

It’s important to note that lower eyelid surgery may not completely eliminate dark circles or wrinkles. Combining it with other treatments, such as fillers or chemical peels, may provide more comprehensive results.

Lower eyelid surgery is a safe and effective option for improving your under eye appearance. Consult with a trusted surgeon to determine if it is right for you.
