Lower Eyelid Surgery

Dark circles and bags under the eyes are one of the most common complaints for patients seeking lower blepharoplasty. While undereye bags are mostly age-related, for some patients they can be hereditary, causing patients to constantly appear tired or older than they really are. Astra Plastic Surgery offers lower eyelid surgery in Atlanta to correct these cosmetic concerns and provide patients with a youthful, well-rested appearance. Because the eyes are among some of our most noticeable features, the results of eyelid surgery can be life-changing for many patients.

What Is Lower Blepharoplasty?

Lower blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to reduce the appearance of puffiness, excess skin, and dark circles under the eyes. With age, the delicate skin surrounding the eyes begins to lose elasticity and collagen, causing cosmetic concerns. In other cases, some patients are genetically predisposed to aging of the lower eyelids. In younger patients who have good skin elasticity, our surgeons may only need to remove the fat under the eyes, while older patients may require more significant skin tightening. Lower blepharoplasty surgery helps patients achieve a younger and more refreshed appearance.

At Astra Plastic Surgery, we perform lower blepharoplasty using an invisible incision, strategically hiding any scarring in the natural creases underneath the eye. As a result, patients can enjoy an “un-operated” appearance. The lower blepharoplasty procedure is customizable to meet the needs of each individual patient and create the most aesthetically pleasing results.

What Are The Benefits Of Lower Eyelid Surgery?

Lower eyelid surgery can address many common signs of aging that may surface around the eyes, leaving patients with a rejuvenated facial appearance. Since the eyes are the focal point of the face, lower eyelid surgery can provide drastic improvements to eye appearance. The benefits of lower eyelid surgery in Atlanta are long-lasting. Using advanced techniques, our team of eyelid surgeons pride themselves in creating natural-looking results.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Lower Eyelid Surgery?

The ideal candidate for lower eyelid surgery in Atlanta is in good general health and a non-smoker. During your consultation to discuss lower eyelid surgery in further detail, Dr. Killingsworth and his surgical team will review your health history, eye anatomy, medications, and more to ensure that this procedure is right for you. Patients should have realistic expectations for their results before opting for lower eyelid surgery.

If you struggle with pronounced fat pads, dark circles, tear troughs, or excess skin under the eyes, lower eyelid surgery may be right for you. Patients with a history of eye or vision issues may not be a candidate for this procedure. It is important to disclose your health history to your doctor to ensure your safety when undergoing this procedure. Oftentimes, patients choose to pair lower eyelid surgery with upper eyelid surgery to achieve more comprehensive results.

What Should I Expect During Lower Eyelid Surgery?

During lower eyelid surgery, patients will go under either local or general anesthesia, depending on the severity of their case. Before beginning, a special lens will be placed over the eyeball to protect it during surgery. Then, a small incision will be made, usually hidden within the crease of the eye under the lower eyelashes. In some cases, an incision is required on the inner portion of the lower eyelid to properly reposition the fat pads.

After the initial incision is made, our facial plastic surgery team will begin removing any excess skin and fat necessary. Fat pads will be re-positioned to fill any hollowing under the eyes and create a youthful appearance. Once the procedure is complete, the incisions will be closed with sutures. Lower eyelid surgery usually takes about 45 minutes to an hour to complete.

What Should I Expect After Lower Eyelid Surgery?

After undergoing lower eyelid surgery, patients will be taken to a recovery room. The type of anesthesia administered helps determine how long patients must undergo monitoring following their procedure. Patients who opt for general anesthesia should expect a longer in-office recovery period. Once the anesthesia wears off, patients can expect mild bruising, swelling, and discomfort. However, these symptoms will subside in the weeks following your surgery.

Before returning home, Astra Plastic Surgery provides each patient with detailed aftercare instructions. We stress the fact that proper aftercare during the recovery period will help patients get the best results from their procedure. While healing, patients should avoid touching their eyes, wearing makeup and other skincare products, swimming, and excessive physical activity. It is recommended that patients take time to rest and maintain head elevation while recovering.




What Results Should I Expect From Lower Eyelid Surgery?

During your consultation for lower eyelid surgery in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his staff of plastic surgery professionals will go over your expected results in detail. The results of lower blepharoplasty are dependent on a number of factors, including age, genetics, skin quality, and more. No two patients will experience identical results.

Following lower blepharoplasty surgery, patients will not be able to see their final results immediately. Rather, the results will continue to improve in the months following surgery. It is important that patients follow their provided aftercare instructions carefully in order to maximize their results and minimize the recovery period. Our team is on hand to answer any questions that patients may have concerning their results before and after the procedure.

How Much Does Lower Blepharoplasty In Atlanta Cost?

Lower eyelid surgery is typically considered a strictly cosmetic procedure, so it is not likely that the procedure will be covered by insurance. Following your consultation for lower eyelid surgery in Atlanta, our team will provide a detailed cost summary. Astra Plastic Surgery offers financing through CareCredit® and Alphaeon® Credit; we also accept personal checks, cash, and credit cards.
