What is a non-surgical eyelid lift?
Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs natural liquid eyelid lifts on the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta, and the surrounding communities in Georgia.
An in-office procedure that takes less than 15 minutes to perform, our nonsurgical eyelid lift, also known as the MM eye lift, addresses the hollowing under the lower eyelids frequently known as dark circles. This procedure restores the youthful contour between the eyelid skin and the cheek providing a natural lift and transition between the two regions.
Dark circles are generally the result of two factors: lower eyelid puffiness or hollowing below the eyelid creating a dark circle or ‘tear trough’ that makes us look ‘tired’, ‘unrested’, or ‘sad’. Using thin fillers such as Restylane , Dr. Majmundar gently adds volume to this region smoothing the harsh shadow between the lower eyelid and the cheek creating a more youthful and natural eyelid without any surgery.
What are some benefits of a non-surgical eyelid lift?
- A more attractive, youthful appearance to the eye area
- Less tired or sad appearance
- Non-invasive alternative to surgery
- No anesthesia
- Improved self-confidence in one’s image
- No downtime or discomfort
- Beautiful, natural-looking results
Instead of needles, Dr. Majmundar uses blunt microcannulas to place the filler into the under eye area helping to improve the dark circle and hollowed lower eyelid appearance. Blunt microcannulas minimize the risk of bruising by greater than 95%. More importantly, it makes the placement of the filler exponentially safer.
What happens during my recovery?
As with all fillers, patients may experience temporary redness, swelling, or bruising. You will be provided with an ice pack after your treatment to use the remainder of the day and asked not to manipulate the treated areas with your fingers. You may use your makeup and sunscreen after treatment.
The risk of bruising and swelling is decreased by our use of a flexible, soft, blunt cannula instead of the use of a firm, penetrating needle for our injections. This truly minimizes downtime for 95% of individuals though less than 5% of individuals may still get swelling or bruising for 1-3 days. In the event of bruising, it is usually pinpoint in size and easily covered with makeup.
Who is a good candidate for this treatment?
Good candidates are usually those clients who desire improvement in how their eyes and smile look, but who are not willing to take the risk of a major surgery such as blepharoplasty with its longer downtimes, incisions and discomfort. During your confidential consultation in Alpharetta, the doctor will be able to determine if a non-surgical eyelid lift is the right solution for your goals.
Individuals who have significantly bruised under the eyes from previous injections are also good candidates to try micro cannulas for their nonsurgical eyelid lift treatment.
What if I have special concerns about my outcome?
We consult with hundreds of men and women in Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Alpharetta and the surrounding communities in Georgia every month regarding their facial appearance, and the most common concern or fear is ‘looking pulled’ or ‘weird’. Dr. Majmundar is a national trainer and advanced injector who teaches other physicians about performing nonsurgical eyelid lifts.
In some cases, we can also use our Vectra XT 3D simulation technology to show you your MM eyelid lift result before performing the procedure to address any specific concerns. At Northside Plastic Surgery, we specialize in surgical and nonsurgical procedures that achieve youthful and natural results. Our signature procedures, such as our natural facelift, natural brow lift or no scar rhinoplasty, are designed to result in a balanced, healthy, and natural contour.
What is the cost of a non-surgical eyelid lift?
Costs for a non-surgical eyelid lift will vary from patient to patient, because each client will require a different level of care based on the degree of undereye discoloration, sagging and puffiness.
