How Is the Lower Blepharoplasty Performed?
The Lower Eyelid Lift at TLC can remove protruding undereye puffiness, excess skin that sags and wrinkles, restoring a well-rested, alert appearance to patients who are tired of looking tired. Dr. Paul Lanfranchi has perfected the lower blepharoplasty over thousands of procedures since 2006, so your recovery is quicker and you look refreshed sooner.
This delicate procedure is performed under local anesthetic in the state-of-the-art TLC facility. Dr. Lanfranchi uses advanced surgical techniques perfected over thousands of procedures for a flawless result in about an hour. The incisions are placed in natural creases of the skin, and Dr. Lanfranchi then removes the drooping fat pads, tightens underlying muscles between the lower eye and cheek, and removes excess skin. This procedure produces natural, long-term results, and many patients combine it with other procedures, such as the Upper Eyelid Lift or Brow Lift without prolonging recovery time.
The Lower Eyelid Lift corrects:
- Asymmetry of the lower eyelids
- Lax skin resulting in wrinkling, bags, and sagging
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you have concerns you appear drawn, exhausted, or overwhelmed because of undereye bags, puffiness, or sagging, you may be an ideal candidate for a Lower Eyelid Lift. Some patients whose main concern is undereye wrinkling may be better suited for a fractional CO2 laser treatment. If undereye hollows are your issue, a fat transfer procedure may be a better fit. A personal consultation with Dr. Lanfranchi can answer all your questions.
