Do you have under eye bags? A common misconception about facelift surgery is that it corrects all signs of facial aging. A facelift does provide a dramatic, rejuvenating facial transformation, but it isn’t the right solution for every concern. If you have puffiness under the eyes, under the eye bags, sagging eyelids, or drooping around the eyes, you’ll need to pair your facelift with blepharoplasty to achieve the best results. Call us today and learn more about your options or schedule your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Slupchynskyj.
Facelift Surgery: What It Can and Cannot Do
Look younger and feel more confident with a facelift. This procedure has many benefits including:
- Treats sagging in the lower third of the face
- Corrects wrinkling and jowling in the lower face
- Restores youthful facial contours
- Tightens the neck and jawline
A facelift focuses primarily on the lower regions of the face. It does not treat:
- Bags under the eyes
- Forehead wrinkles
- Excess fat deposits on the face and neck
- Extensive loose skin on the neck
If a facelift alone won’t address all your skin concerns, we can recommend complementary treatments. A facelift pairs well with other facial cosmetic procedures including blepharoplasty (eyelid lift), brow lift, neck lift, liposuction, and fat grafting.
Facelift + Blepharoplasty: How to Treat Bags Under the Eyes
To rejuvenate your face and treat the bags under your eyes, you’ll need facelift surgery and blepharoplasty (eyelid lift). These two procedures can be performed together with a single trip to the operating room. By combining procedures, you can recover from both surgeries together and can achieve full facial rejuvenation. We may recommend additional procedures or treatments during your consultation to ensure the best results from your facelift.
Although a facelift doesn’t treat bags under the eyes, we address them by adding blepharoplasty to your facelift. Take the next step toward rejuvenation by scheduling your consultation with Dr. Slupchynskyj today.
