Cosmetic eye surgery can help Charlotte, NC residents who are experiencing signs of aging on the upper eyelids, lower lids, and more.

The eyes are one of the first places people notice signs of aging
Cosmetic eye surgery is a popular procedure for Charlotte, NC residents who are starting to see signs of aging. The eyes are one of the first things people notice when they look at you, and it is also one of the first places people can start to see signs of aging. Fine lines can begin to develop around the eyes, under the eyes can start to look puffy and bulge, and upper eyelids can start to get heavy and droop down. All these things are signs of aging that cosmetic eye surgery can correct.

Cosmetic eye surgery on the upper eyelids can help people with droopy eyelids
Many men and women may start to develop extra fat above the eyes. This can result in the upper eyelids becoming heavy and drooping down over the actual eye. This not only can make people feel self conscious, but it can also impair people’s vision as the eyelid eclipses the eyeball.

Upper eyelid surgery is a cosmetic eye surgery that removes the extra fat from above the eye. Once the excess skin is removed the doctor may do a lift to help keep the upper eyelid where it is supposed to be. This can restore patient’s vision and help them look younger and more refreshed.

Puffy under eyes can make patients look tired
Under the eyes may become an issue as people age as well. The fat under the eyes can start to bulge out creating bags, which are often seen as a sign of someone being tired or run down. There are a few different techniques doctors who are performing cosmetic eye surgery on the lower lids can do. One is to remove the fat. However, this can sometimes leave patients with sunken, hollow looking eyes. So, Dr. Sean Freeman in Charlotte, NC developed the SOOF Lift which pulls the fat back to where it belongs, then tightens the muscles that are supposed to hold it there. This technique prevents the sunken eye look but makes the eyes appear more youthful again as it restores them to how they were.

Be sure to follow instructions after surgery
Following cosmetic eye surgery, you should be sure to follow doctor’s instructions carefully to ensure you have a smooth recovery. Rest following surgery and have someone around the house who can help you. You should also protect the eyes and the skin around the eyes from the sun until it is fully healed. Be careful not to bump the area and avoid contacts and make up for a while afterward.
