Historically, having bags under your eyes meant that you hadn’t gotten a good night’s sleep in a while. We now understand that in some cases those bags are a result of genetics or aging, and they won’t go away regardless of how much good sleep you chase. If that sounds like something you understand all-too-well, Orlando plastic surgery expert Dr. George Pope can help you appear more well-rested through blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift.
With an eyelid lift, the fat in that area is either moved into a more strategic position or withdrawn entirely, the underlying muscle is made tighter, and extra skin is eliminated. For those experiencing issues with their upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both, the result is a reduction of bags under the eyes and the tired appearance that goes along with them. Blepharoplasty may also relieve fine lines and wrinkles in that area, which is a pretty obvious sign of aging that can afflict people as young as thirty.
How does Dr. Pope do it? Through minimal incisions on the crease found just above the upper eyelid and just below the lower lashes, he can remove any extra fat and tighten any loose skin. The entire treatment is complete two hours and is usually performed under general anesthesia.
