One of the surgical procedures we offer is a lower blepharoplasty — also called lower eyelid surgery, or “eye bag” surgery — which can help combat signs of aging to help you look and feel your best.
Our Dothan Eyelid Surgeon
When you come to Eye Center South for a lower blepharoplasty, you’ll work with Richard W. Bryant, M.D., our board-certified Facial Cosmetic and Orbital Reconstructive Surgeon. After completing a highly-specialized fellowship in oculofacial plastic and reconstructive surgery with world-renowned cosmetic surgeons in Beverly Hills, California, Dr. Bryant brought his knowledge and expertise to Eye Center South, where today, he is a sought-after surgeon.
What is a Lower Blepharoplasty?
One of the most noticeable signs of aging is sagging skin below the eyes, caused by the weakening of the facial muscles and surrounding tissue over time. This leads to the formation of puffy “eye bags” beneath the lower lids, which cast dark shadows on the face and give the eyes a sunken appearance.
A lower blepharoplasty is a procedure during which excess skin and tissue are removed from your lower lids, and fat is either removed or repositioned to restore lost volume and reduce the prominence of these “eye bags.” This gives you a more youthful, alert appearance, improving your overall look and granting you an irreplaceable confidence boost.
The precise methods of your procedure will vary depending on the severity of your sagging skin and how prominent your eye bags are. When you come in for a consultation with us, Dr. Bryant will evaluate your lower eyelids and face to determine which version of the procedure he will perform to improve the area around your eyes.
Does Insurance Cover Lower Eyelid Surgery?
Because a lower blepharoplasty is considered a cosmetic procedure, it’s not usually covered by insurance providers. Lower eyelid surgery is sometimes performed alongside an upper blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid surgery, which can be covered by your health insurance if it’s deemed medically necessary as a way to restore your full range of vision.
