35989364_sAre you curious about cosmetic eye surgery? More and more people are using small changes to create a big aesthetic impact, and revitalizing your eye area may be exactly what you need to feel like you again.

From learning who is a good candidate for eyelid surgery to understanding what to expect during your procedure, here’s what you need to know about refreshing the appearance of your eyes at Aesthetics at Illinois Eye Center.

It Can Change Your Look in a Major Way
If you have loose, sagging skin that seems to drag you down or make you look tired and unhappy when you’re anything but — lower or upper eyelid surgery may be able to help. It can also treat under eye bags, excess fatty deposits and puffiness, droopiness, and fine lines and wrinkles.

With those issues resolved, you look rejuvenated — and that’s often all you need to feel more confident and ready to step back into the spotlight where you belong.

There’s Usually No Need to Be “Put Under”
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is typically done with Monitored Anesthesia Care or “twilight sleep." Without general anesthesia in the mix, recovery is often easier and faster, and that’s a win-win for everyone.

You May Be a Better Candidate Than You Think
Dr. Catherine Cuite, Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at Aesthetics at Illinois Eye Center will determine whether or not you’re eligible for cosmetic eye surgery, but there are a few key variables to consider:

  • Do you want to remove excess skin from your lower eyelids, reduce baggy eyelid skin, or tackle fine lines and wrinkles?
  • Are you in good health overall?
  • Are you in the right age bracket? (These eye procedures are typically done on patients 35 years of age and older, but there may be exceptions).

Most of all, we’ll discuss your personal goals and expectations, so you know exactly what kind of results are possible and how the process usually goes.
