The processes of aging affect everyone a little differently. One of the most common signs of aging, though, is drooping eyelids. Fortunately, drooping eyelids are also quite easy to correct. You can take years off your appearance and restore your youthful look.
Eyelid procedures available at Charles V. Pledger, MD are designed to address the droop in your eyelids and remove excess fatty deposits from under your eyes. They restore your youthful and alert appearance. It is not uncommon to couple eyelid surgery with a facelift procedure as well.
During the procedure, Dr. Charles V. Pledger will make careful incisions that follow the natural creases and contours of the skin around your eyes. This greatly reduces any noticeable scarring. Incisions are then made around the lower eyelid to gain access to the fatty deposits under your eyes. Excess fat is removed and remaining fat is sculpted to improve the overall contours around the eye and lessen some of the noticeable lines.
Here at Charles V. Pledger, MD, eyelid surgeries are often performed on an outpatient basis, requiring deep sedation. You will need to arrange to have someone drive you home and help you out for a time once there.
During recovery, you may experience minor bruising and swelling. This will naturally go away over time. A chemical or laser peel might also be recommended to reduce any discoloration in your lower eyelid.
Turning back the clock on your eyes can restore a youthful appearance with a single, simple procedure. It’s time to have eyes people notice from across the room again. To learn more about eyelid surgery or schedule a consultation with Dr. Charles V. Pledger, please call our Provo, UT, office today.
