Lower Eyelid Correction
Loose skin and chronic swelling of the lower eyelid can be the cause of a tired appearance and can lead to irritation of the eyeball. In some patients there is a particularly pronounced sagging of the edge of the eyelid after a stroke or trauma.
By gently tightening the skin and suspending the edge of the lower eyelid, a more youthful and fresh look can be achieved. The surgery can be performed under local anesthesia with suture removal after 5 days.
Hospital Admission: Outpatient
Recuperation Time: 1-2 weeks
Patient must cool the area for two days. Expect swelling for up to one week
