Ask Cheryl: Blepharoplasty for Bags under Eyes

Q:  I have bags under my eyes that make me look old and tired. Help! 

A:  This is a very common concern for men and women.  Bags under the eyes can be removed through a cosmetic surgical procedure called blepharoplasty.  The goal is to look natural and to look like yourself, but more alert and refreshed.

This one-hour procedure is performed under local anesthesia, there is minimal discomfort, an the recovery time is 7 to 10 days.  During this time you will feel fine and can drive, shop, and maintain normal activities.  However, you will initially want to wear dark glasses outside of the hours because there will be some swelling and bruising around the eyes for a few days.

I invite you to come in to SkinHealth Centers for a free consultation with Dr. Daniel Townsend, an ophthalmic plastic surgeon who has successfully performed over 10,000 of these procedures.
