We’ve all had those mornings when we didn’t get enough sleep and it seems like there’s not enough concealer in the world to cover up the dark circles and bags under our eyes! If you look in the mirror and see someone who looks tired, and you feel like you’ve tried every eye cream out there, there’s a more permanent solution. Dr. William Burden from Destin Plastic Surgery tells Cherish Lombard Lower eyelid surgery can give patients a rested, brighter and more youthful appearance.
A critical portion of the aging process involves the cheek pad. As the cheek pad falls and begins to droop, the lower eyelid takes on an elongated appearance and the nasolabial folds appear deeper. The lower eyelid surgery technique developed by Destin Plastic Surgery addresses this.
In general, upper and lower eyelid surgery can be performed as an outpatient procedure. The recuperation period is not prolonged with most people returning to work between 7 and 14 days. Postoperative pain is well tolerated requiring a short-term course of narcotic pain pills.
Dr. Burden, MD, FACS is known for his experience and dedication to staying in the forefront of leading technology in plastic surgery. He’s a pioneer in minimally invasive facial surgery having performed the University of Florida’s first endoscopic brow lift in 1994.
