What is a Lower Blepharoplasty?
Lower blepharoplasty, or the lower eyelid lift, specifically addresses constant under-eye puffiness, wrinkled skin, and even dark circles to give you a refreshed, younger look. For such delicate tissues, it takes a skilled surgeon like Dr. Paul Lanfranchi to provide a smooth, flawless result. Dr. Lanfranchi’s precision and attention to detail, combined with advanced surgical techniques, produce age-defying results to turn back the clock in just a single day.
The outpatient procedure is performed at The Lanfranchi Center, the Las Vegas Valley’s premier cosmetic rejuvenation clinic. Using local anesthesia with oral sedatives, you’re comfortable, relaxed, and pain-free throughout. A tiny incision is made in the natural camouflaging of existing eye creases. Fat pads that have shifted with age are removed, and underlying muscles between the eye and cheek that have become lax are tightened. Excess skin is removed and your incision is closed.
A lower eyelid lift may be the answer if you experience:
- Asymmetrical lower lids
- Under-eye sagging
- Wrinkling skin
Am I a Good Candidate?
If your under-eye bags are cause for concern, you may be an ideal candidate. Some under-eye skin wrinkling is best treated with fractional CO2 laser treatment, so an eyelid lift may not be necessary to achieve your goals. Dr. Lanfranchi can help you determine what’s best for you.
