Reclaim The Face Of Your Younger Years

Nothing conveys more emotion than the eyes. As we age, puffiness, excess skin and tissue, and dark circles can make us appear tired, sick, or even upset when we feel nothing of the sort. When Dr. Elizabeth Chance performs a lower eyelid lift at her practice, C + Co Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics in Charlottesville, Virginia, she transforms her patients into vital, healthy, and happier versions of themselves.

Bothersome But Easy To Treat

Under-eye bags are one of the most common aging complaints Dr. Chance hears. Patients of all genders come to her when they feel bothered by their lower eyelids and wish to look more rested and rejuvenated. Dr. Chance is fond of calling eyelid lifts the greatest ‘bang for your buck’ because downtime is negligible, and the results are impressive.

What Happens During A Lower Eyelid Lift?

For such an effective way to look rested and fresh-faced, lower eyelid surgery is relatively straightforward and can be performed in just a few hours. Patients undergo this procedure in an operating room under general anesthesia. Dr. Chance will create an incision along your lower eyelid to reposition or remove fatty tissue under the skin, tweak the position of local muscles, and remove excess skin as needed.

How Do I Know If A Lower Eyelid Lift Is For Me?

A consultation with Dr. Chance is the best way to learn if a lower eyelid lift can give you the look you desire. Dr. Chance listens to your aesthetic goals and concerns in a careful and compassionate manner and performs an examination of your face. If she determines that a lower eyelid lift is appropriate for you, she will educate you on the benefits and risks and answer all your questions.

Here are a few common issues that a lower eyelid lift can correct:

  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping or sagging skin
  • Dark circles, rings, and wrinkles under the eyes
  • Exposed white tissue of the lower lids

What Is Recovery Like After a Lower Eyelid Lift?

Recovery is often quick and easy for a lower eyelid lift. Bruising and swelling are to be expected and will subside in a week or so. Sutures are not used for a lower eyelid lift, which accelerates recovery time. Dr. Chance and her educated staff at C+ Co Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics are here to hold your hand through the recovery period, no matter how short. Meticulous post-operative care that is smooth and low-stress is one of the pillars of Dr. Chance’s practice. 

What Results Can I Expect?

Lower eyelid lifts truly yield miraculous results. Some patients can even delay more invasive facial surgeries for a few years because they look so much younger after a lower eyelid lift. Expect a refreshed, brighter look, and be ready for compliments from friends and colleagues who will never quite put their finger on what’s changed about you.
