As the “windows to the soul," the eyes can communicate our deepest thoughts and emotions, providing an instant connection to others. When aging occurs in this delicate area of the face, it can have a significant impact on your overall appearance. Eyes are often one of our most attractive facial features, but drooping skin and puffiness over time can obscure the natural beauty and sometimes give an impression of being “tired” or angry. Dr. Pruitt performs gentle, conservative eyelid surgery to reveal more of your eyes, remove sagging skin and pockets of fat, and provide you with an enhanced appearance and self-image.
Your Recovery Period
After surgery, Dr. Pruitt will want you to follow specific instructions to minimize swelling or puffiness and speed recovery. His nurse educator will discuss these with you at your pre-operative consultation and they will be provided to you in writing as well.
