Lower lid ages not as same way as the upper eyelid! As the lower eyelid starts to age, the excess skin, muscles, and fat seem to cause an ugly bulge that develops below the eye. The cause of baggy and puffy lower eyelids is due to factors such as herniating fat, excessive skin, and edema (water retention). Moreover, with aging, the lower eyelid sags down, causing more of the scleral show (white of the eyeball) that can also be corrected.
Looking into the mirror and if you always feel exhausted even if you are not, then the lower eyelid blepharoplasty can give you dramatic results.
Lower lid blepharoplasty is usually done under IV sedation or LA and is not a painful procedure.
Many factors lead to dark circles around the eyes, especially under dark eye circles. And one of the factors is loose, wrinkled skin around the eyes and loss of volume at lead cheek junction. If these are addressed during lower lid blepharoplasty, defiantly, there will be an improvement in the under dark eye circles. And procedures like nano fat grafting and micro fat grafting can be added to improve skin texture.
Initially, there is swelling and bruising around the eyes. Swelling decreases in 3 to 5 days, and bruising clears completely around 2 to 3 weeks.
