Fight Dark Circles and Under-Eye Bags

Having exhausted-looking lower eyelids is one of the most common reasons why patients undergo eyelid surgery. Dark circles and under-eye bags can develop, the muscles and tissues begin to weaken, skin elasticity decreases, and fat can shift, causing a lot of excess skin and weight to hang under the eyes. These factors can all result in a tired, puffy appearance, which makes you look older. Lower eyelid surgery is an excellent option to combat these issues.  

Why Patients Love Lower Eyelid Surgery

•    Reduces the appearance of dark circles
•    Decreases under-eye puffiness and bags
•    Smooths wrinkles in the area
•    Corrects droopy lower lids that show white below the iris

Combining Aesthetics and Wellness

At RG Plastic Surgery in Nashville, we believe in comprehensive and holistic rejuvenation. This is why Dr. Ramirez Gavidia looks at each patient as a whole instead of just focusing on one area. With his approach to cosmetic procedures, there’s an emphasis on achieving comprehensive balance so that patients look more natural and improved overall. He will never perform just one procedure, instead choosing to provide more holistic rejuvenation. 

Lower Eyelid Procedure Details

Lower eyelid surgery is typically performed with the patient under local anesthesia. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will create an incision directly below the lower eyelash line so that he can remove or reposition excess fat and excise excess skin of the lower eyelid. If no excess skin needs to be removed, the incision can also be created on the inside of the lower eyelid. With the skill and precision of Dr. Ramirez Gavidia, the results are very natural-looking — so no one will be able to tell you underwent a surgical procedure. They will only notice that you look refreshed and rejuvenated. 

Recovery After Surgery

  • Full recovery from a lower eyelid procedure usually takes 10-14 days
  • The majority of patients go back to work in 5-7 days and continue exercise in three weeks
  • You can expect to have swelling and bruising for two weeks
  • We recommend resting with your head elevated, even when you are asleep 
  • You may temporarily experience a sensation of tightness around the eyes
  • You cannot wear contact lenses for two weeks
