Eyelift Procedures Can Address the Signs of Aging

As you age, your skin loses collagen, which causes the skin around your eyes and eyelids to slowly droop. At the same time many people also develop small fatty deposits or bags under their eyes. This might prompt you to consult with Dr. Mitchell Kaye about a having an eyelift performed.

An eyelift is specifically designed to address the droop in your eye lids and remove excess fatty deposits from under your eyes. Many of the people having an eyelift performed at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Kentucky also have it performed in conjunction with a facelift to address multiple problem areas in one procedure.

An eyelift can be 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, your surgeon will 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. Excess fat is removed while the remaining fat is sculpted to improve the overall contours around the eye and lessen some of the noticeable lines.

It’s natural for you to experience minor bruising and swelling for a while after the eyelift. This will naturally diminish with time. A chemical or laser peel might also be recommended to reduce any natural discoloration in your lower eyelid.
