Lift, Brighten, & Rejuvenate Tired-Looking Eyes
The eyes are a natural focal point of the face and, as such, have a significant impact on your overall appearance. Furthermore, signs of aging around the eyes can cause you to appear perpetually tired or older than you feel.
Beverly Hills face specialist Dr. Patrick Davis offers a variety of procedures designed to restore the appearance of youthfulness around the eyes, including Lower Blepharoplasty, Upper Blepharoplasty, Fat Transposition, and Endoscopic Brow Lift™ surgeries. Patients interested in cosmetic eye treatments like lower blepharoplasty in Beverly Hills and surrounding areas can achieve naturally exquisite results with Patrick Davis, MD.
Lower blepharoplasty (or lower eyelift surgery) addresses signs of aging in the area below the eyes, including sagging, bags, volume depletion, and wrinkles, to produce a long-lasting rejuvenating effect. Patients often ask about fixing the hollowness in the tear trough adjacent to the side of the nose and under the eyes. Particularly the Lower Blepharoplasty with fat transposition corrects this deformity for long-lasting results.
Lower blepharoplasty surgically restores the smooth, youthful, energized appearance of the area below the eyes by removing excess skin and repositioning fat under the eye down onto the upper cheek thereby smoothing under-eye fullness or “bags.” It is a fully customizable procedure that can be combined with other eye treatments to produce the most comprehensive and natural-looking results.
Lower blepharoplasty can have a significant effect on the overall appearance of youthfulness in the face. With a bright, young, well-rested look, you can expect an increase in confidence which can contribute to improved social and professional relationships. Cosmetic benefits of lower blepharoplasty include:
Dr. Davis often performs lower blepharoplasty surgery alongside other procedures designed to rejuvenate the upper portion of the face, including Fat Transposition and Endoscopic Brow Lift™ surgeries. Not only does combining procedures reduce your total costs and downtime, but this strategic approach can also produce more comprehensive results for patients with more advanced or widespread concerns.
Fat transposition involves redistributing the underlying fat of the eyelids to eliminate bulging for smoother, more youthful contours and an overall lifted look. Meanwhile, endoscopic brow lift surgery effectively addresses wrinkles and sagging throughout the upper portion of the face. While these procedures are minimally involved, they produce long-lasting and natural-looking results when performed by a skilled surgeon like Dr. Davis. These treatments are especially beneficial for patients who would like to resolve moderate to advanced signs of aging in the upper portion of the face without undergoing a full facelift.
Patients with drooping, sagging, or “bags” beneath their eyes are generally excellent candidates for lower blepharoplasty, especially those in which excess tissue is impairing the field of vision. As for any elective surgical procedure, patients should not smoke and be in good general health, with no underlying conditions that may impair their body’s ability to heal.
Your lower blepharoplasty in Beverly Hills with Dr. Davis will be performed under local anesthesia with sedation to ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure. Once you are ready for surgery, Dr. Davis will use one of several techniques to perform your eyelift.
For patients who do not have significant excess skin in their lower eyelids, Dr. Davis may employ a transconjunctival technique that involves a small incision on the inside of the eyelid, preventing any visible external scarring. This technique allows Dr. Davis to adjust or remove portions of underlying tissues for smoother contours. For patients who require some skin removal, Dr. Davis may perform a transcutaneous blepharoplasty.
This involves the removal and repositioning of skin and tissue via a small, discreet incision along the lower lash line. Once healed, this incision leaves virtually no detectable indication of surgery. Once Dr. Davis has performed all of the procedures included in your personalized treatment plan to effectively sculpt the area beneath your eyes, he will close your incisions and prepare you for your at-home recovery. As an outpatient procedure, you will need to arrange for a close friend or family member to drive you home after surgery.
In the days following your surgery, you will notice some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, although these minor side effects should be easily manageable with pain medication, cold compress application, and moisturizing ointment. You will need to avoid strenuous activities and direct sun exposure during your recovery. During your recovery for lower blepharoplasty Beverly hills facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Davis, will monitor your progress to ensure that you heal properly. You should expect approximately 10-14 days of social downtime while you heal.
As you heal and any bruising and swelling subside, you will see your youthful and authentic results gradually appear. Lower blepharoplasty results are considered long-lasting, with most Beverly Hills lower blepharoplasty patients remaining satisfied with the appearance of their eyes for five years or longer, at which some patients choose to undergo a touch-up procedure.
