Aging comes with a wide range of challenges. When it comes to your eyes, loose skin and excess fat can lead to sagging above the eyelids and puffy bags beneath the eyes.

If you are struggling with any of these issues, eyelid surgery in Oklahoma can help you see clearly and feel more comfortable with the look of your eyes. Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper and lower eyelids. Your consultation with Dr. Lowe will help determine whether you will require upper or lower eyelid surgery, or both.
You will be put under local anesthesia for your two- to three-hour procedure. Dr. Lowe will begin with an incision following the natural folds of your eyelids or just below the lashes of the lower lids. Excess fat is then removed and any hanging skin is trimmed away to achieve a youthful look around the eyes. Once the incisions are closed, Dr. Lowe may place a surgical bandage to ensure proper healing.
Detailed care instructions will be provided to you following your surgery. You will need to spend a few days of rest at home before you are able to return to work, but if you wear contacts, you will need to rely on traditional lenses for a couple weeks until you feel comfortable with contact lenses again.
