The lower eyelids play an important role for eye protection and closure. To function properly, they need to maintain a fine balance between proper anatomic position and orientation during eye movement, blinking, and eyelid closure. As we age, the eyelids tend to loosen and can become unstable either turning inward or outward. Additionally, if they become too lax, they may not move properly during blinking and play an important role with tear drainage away from the eyes. They also can retract or pull downward from their normal position at the bottom of the cornea (clear “cap” of the eye).
One advanced procedure we perform here at Springs Aesthetics is lower eyelid surgery to help augment the lower eyelid and not only improve its aestheticism but functionality as well. Dr. Burroughs specializes in eyelid surgery, performing over a thousand procedures every year. Contact us today to schedule your consultation and learn more about this exciting procedure.
How can I benefit from lower eyelid surgery?
Lower eyelid surgery offers patients who experience eyelid laxity a variety of benefits that include:
- Improved blinking and eyelid closure capabilities
- Corrected bags beneath the eyes
- Greater self-confidence toward your facial profile
While deeper bags beneath the eyes can result in a tired or irritated appeal, this advanced procedure can also establish a more awake and alert appearance.
