Eye Lift


Giving Your Eyes A More Youthful Appearance

AMG Plastic Surgery in Herndon, VA is pleased to offer eye lifts to correct droopy eyes! This procedure tightens the skin under the eyes, eliminating eye bags and giving the face a smoother, more youthful appearance. Eye lift surgery can be performed on people of any age. The best way to know whether you are a good candidate for eye lift surgery is to contact Dr. Ghaznavi.

The Eye Lift Procedure

The eye lift surgery procedure is a cosmetic surgery used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and bags under the eyes. This procedure is straightforward and can be completed here at the AMG Plastic Surgery office. Eye lift reduces the visibility of wrinkles and bags under your eyes and can make you look more refreshed.

During eye lift surgery, Dr. Ghaznavi will first make an incision in the natural crease of the eyelid, then remove excess fat and skin from around the eyes. Once this excess tissue has been removed, he will then tighten the muscles with sutures so that there are no more visible wrinkles. The necessary procedure time is around one to two hours. If the incision is made in the crease of the eyelid, then it will be hidden once it has healed. An incision below the lower lid results in a scar on the patient’s cheek.

The surgery typically lasts about an hour, and patients can usually return home the same day. The results of the eye lift surgery are usually very dramatic, and most patients are thrilled with the results.

Who Can Benefit From An Eye Lift?

People who have visible signs of aging around their eyes, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Puffiness
  • Under eye bags
  • Tear trough lines and grooves
  • Crow’s feet

Recovery From Eye Lift Surgery

The surgery is quick and done under local anesthesia. It takes about an hour to complete. Patients are typically sent home after the procedure on the same day. Depending on which areas under your eyes need more attention, it might take a few hours or even a full day for recovery time, but most patients find that they can return to their normal activities within two days of getting the procedure done.

Patients may experience swelling and bruising after the surgery. Post-operative precautions for patients include avoiding strenuous exercise for one week and no smoking for as long as the surgeon specifies. Complications such as infection or bleeding are rare, but patients should contact their doctor immediately if these symptoms occur.
