When this happens, we can begin looking tired, aged, or even grumpy, even though we feel nothing of the sort. With lower blepharoplasty in Austin, you can give your lower eyelid area the rejuvenating treatment it needs to get you looking vibrant and youthful with a single procedure.

What is an Lower Blepharoplasty?
A lower blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that tightens and refreshes the lower eyelid area. It can be done as a standalone procedure or in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as an upper blepharoplasty, brow lift, or facelift. More and more patients are using this procedure as an effective way to maintain a vibrant appearance even as the years pass by. Just because time passes, that does not mean we need to show it on our faces.
What Is Lower Eyelid Surgery Like?
First, you can rest assured that you will be comfortable throughout your procedure. Patients will have either local anesthetic or sedation in order to make the entire surgery stress-free. The option that is best for you depends on your health and personal preference.
During a lower blepharoplasty, your surgeon will make incisions along the lower eyelid, either just below the lash line or inside the lower eyelid itself. This way, any scarring that results from the surgery will be hidden. Through these incisions, your surgeon will then remove any excess skin or fat before repositioning and suturing the lower eyelid into its new, improved position.
The entire lower blepharoplasty procedure usually takes about two hours to complete, although this will depend on the specific needs of each individual patient. The surgery is usually done as an outpatient procedure, which means that you will be able to go home the same day.

How Is the Recovery?
The recovery process for lower eyelid surgery is usually rather brief and straightforward with little risk of any complications. Most patients report feeling well enough to return to their regular activities within a week or so. However, it is important to give your body the time it needs to heal properly, so make sure to take it easy and get plenty of rest in the first few days following your surgery. You may experience some bruising, swelling, and redness around your lower eyelids, but this is normal and should subside within a few days. Though it can take a bit longer for it to go away fully.Request Appointment
When Will I See Results?
You will see some immediate results from lower eyelid surgery; however, it can take up to several months for the full effects to be apparent. This is because you will need to wait for the swelling to fully disappear, so you will be able to see your full results. With proper care and healthy habits, you can see your results last for years, staying vibrant and looking your best.
