Rejuvenate Your Appearance with Lower Eyelid Surgery By crhove on May 12, 2016

Woman with smooth, firm skin around the eyesThe eyes are often referred to as the “windows to the soul,” and there is a reason for it. The eyes are actually one of a person’s most expressive features. And it is not just the eyes themselves, but the skin around the eyes. When a person smiles, glares, or even cries, the skin around the eyes creases. All this expression can wear out this already delicate area. What often results is premature signs of aging around the eyes, including loose, droopy skin and bags or dark circles beneath the eyes. Eyelid surgery smooths and tightens the skin around the eyes to restore a more rested and youthful appearance. Lower eyelid surgery specifically addresses the skin that collects beneath the lower eyelids. Patients who are concerned with the development of these imperfections can meet with plastic surgeon Christopher R. Hove to learn if they are lower eyelid surgery candidates at our Philadelphia, PA practice.

Lower Eyelid Surgery Candidates

Most people pay little attention to the skin around the eyes when they are younger. But as the skin begins to appear worn down, loose, puffy, or hollowed out, patients often become concerned about their appearance. The good news is that lower eyelid surgery can restore the vitality of the under-eye skin.

Through a lower eyelid procedure Dr. Hove can remove excess skin and fatty tissue and reposition the fatty tissues to minimize the signs of puffy bags, fill in hollowed depressions of skin between the eyes and cheeks, or smooth out lines and creases. To determine if you may be an ideal candidate for lower eyelid surgery, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I frequently wake under eye circles?
  • Does the area beneath my eyes have a hollowed out, skeletal appearance?
  • Do people regularly comment that I look tired?
  • Does the skin around my lower eyes look more aged than other areas of my face?
  • Do the imperfections of my under-eye skin make me look older than I actually am?

Answering yes to any of these questions is likely a good sign that it is time to consider lower eyelid surgery. Any patient who is concerned with the appearance of the lower eyelids, and in good overall physical health, may be an ideal candidate for this procedure. Dr. Hove can meet with patients to examine the skin around the eyes, discuss their aesthetic goals, and go over their medical history to determine if lower eyelid surgery is an appropriate option for each patient.
