  • Puffiness
  • Bags
  • Excess skin
  • Drooping eyelids
  • Dark circles

By removing skin (and sometimes fat) from the eyelids, your plastic surgeon can refresh tired-looking eyes that takes away years from your age. An experienced plastic surgeon will make incisions in creases so that any scars will be concealed.

Choose an Experienced Plastic Surgeon to Minimize Scarring

In plastic surgery, minimizing scarring from incisions is important. After all, you want people to think that you look younger but not because of surgery. A qualified plastic surgeon will evaluate your facial structure to determine the least visible placement for your incisions. Knoxville patients will have scarring that is concealed in the fold of their eyelid or on the inside of the eyelid, which is invisible.
