How is the LuxeEyes℠ procedure performed?

Dr. Donath begins with the Blepharoplasty surgery by making incisions. The upper eyelid incisions are along the natural lines and creases. The lower eyelid incisions are usually located behind the eyelids- because there is no incision/scar on the outside, it is considered “scarless”. Once incisions are made, he will remove excess fat, muscle, and loose skin. Patients who have just lower eyelid puffiness caused by excess fat may be candidates for this transconjunctival blepharoplasty in which excess fatty tissue is removed through an incision on the inside of the lower eyelid. The upper lid incisions will then be closed with fine sutures. After the blepharoplasty, Dr. Donath will remove fat from the donor area with methods somewhat similar to liposuction, but with much more attention to keeping the cells alive. Subsequently, the harvested fat from the hips, thighs, or abdomen is meticulously processed and skillfully injected into the desired facial areas.

How long does LuxeEyes℠take to perform?

LuxeEyesSM may take about one to two hours to complete depending on the extent of the work and the technique used.

What is the recovery time for the LuxeEyes℠ procedure?

Patients may experience some soreness and tightness of the eyelids after surgery along with temporary dryness, itching, and rarely burning, tearing, sensitivity to light, and blurred or double vision. Discomfort can be managed with prescription pain medication. Swelling and bruising may occur and can be relieved with cold compresses and keeping the head elevated. An ointment will need to be applied at bedtime and eye drops will need to be regularly applied to the eye area for a period of time to help prevent dryness. You may experience some minor discomfort after the fat transfer portion of the procedure, though this tends to resolve quickly. Redness, bruising, and swelling are variable but are greatly improved within 10-14 days. In general, the swelling for the LuxeEyesSM may subside after 14 days, by which point most people will be presentable socially, but small amounts could last a month.

WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO resume work after the LuxeEyes℠ procedure?

The time to return to work and other activities is variable and mostly dependent upon the individual. For the first week, most patients feel that they look too swollen to be in a typical work environment. However, patients that can work from home frequently return to work the very next day.

LuxeEyesSM Surgery is not painful, as the procedure is performed with either local anesthesia and light sedation or general anesthesia. After the surgery, patients may experience some soreness and tightness of the eyelids along with temporary dryness, itching, burning, tearing, sensitivity to light, and blurred or double vision. Discomfort can be managed with prescription pain medication and cold compresses. Redness, bruising and swelling are variable but these tends to resolve quickly after 10-14 days.

The optimal age for LuxeEyesSM is different for everyone and may vary depending on the individual’s needs. Patients in their 30s and 40s can benefit from a Blepharoplasty procedure if they experience premature aging caused by genetics or lifestyle factors such as smoking, sun exposure, or a lack of sleep. By the 50s, most patients show the excess eyelid skin, lower lid puffiness/bags, and volume loss under the eyes and above the eyes that make them excellent candidates for the LuxeEyessm procedure.

No, there is no maximum age for LuxeEyesSM as long as the person is healthy enough to undergo a surgical procedure. Patients of any age can benefit from a Blepharoplasty procedure if they experience premature aging caused by genetics or lifestyle factors such as smoking, sun exposure, or a lack of sleep. However, it is important to note that the skin’s elasticity decreases with age so patients over 65 may need additional procedures and treatments to achieve desired results. Additionally, this procedure should be performed with caution in patients who have pre-existing health conditions or are taking certain medications that could increase their risk for complications during surgery.

This will depend on the type of incision used and the amount of skin that needs to be removed. In most cases, for the upper eyelids an incision is made in the crease which helps minimize the appearance of any resulting scarring. It is usually very difficult to see any evidence of the procedure after full healing. However, it is important to follow all post-operative instructions carefully in order to ensure optimal results and minimal scarring. For the lower eyelids there is usually no visible scar at all. For the fat transfer portion there is also usually no visible scar in the face and a very minimal scar in the area of the body where the fat is taken from.
