An Eye Lift Can Improve Sagging Eyelids

Collagen production in the skin around your eyes and other parts of your face, naturally decreases with age. This can result in eyelids that droop and lines that form around the eyes. At the same time, many people also develop unappealing fatty deposits, or bags under their eyes.

Dr. Mitchell Kaye can address these issues by performing an eyelift. In many cases, he will recommend having a facelift performed at the same time to rejuvenate the youthful appearance of your face in one single session.

The eyelift is performed on an outpatient basis, and you will be fully sedated. This means you will need to arrange to have someone drive you, and help you out at home while you get back on your feet.

Dr. Mitchell Kaye will then make careful incisions that follow the natural creases and contours of the skin around your eyes. This greatly reduces any visible scars or lines. A similar incision strategy will then be used around the lower eyelid to gain access to the fatty deposits under your eyes. The fatty deposits are removed and the small amount of remaining fat is sculpted. This will improve the overall contours around the eye and lessen some of the noticeable lines.

A chemical or laser peel might also be recommended to reduce any natural discoloration in your lower eyelid.

It’s common for there to be a little bruising and swelling for up to a week after the procedure. This will naturally diminish with time.

If you are interested in rejuvenating the alert and youthful appearance of your eyes, you should call Dr. Mitchell Kaye’s office in Hopkinsville, Kentucky at 866.234.0470 to ask about an eyelift.
