Puffiness and bags under the lower eyelids, like upper eyelid fullness, doesn’t need to be an accepted part of the aging process. The fullness and sagging of the lower eyelids can increase with age, but lower eyelid blepharoplasty can substantially improve this condition in both men and women. Dr. Ragen performs an advanced technique of lower eyelid surgery called transconjunctival blepharoplasty. This procedure does not even require a skin incision. In addition to no visible scars, patients can actually apply eye makeup right after surgery.
"Thank you, Dr. Ragen. It was well worth the drive from Scottsdale to have a surgeon of your reputation and skill…You have renewed my youth!"

What You Can Expect with Eye Surgery
In general, there is no discomfort during or after the surgical procedures we perform. The procedures are performed in our office surgical suite under local anesthetic. During the operation, you may rest or even ask questions and converse during the procedure. The atmosphere is relaxed and our staff knows how to make you feel comfortable and confident throughout your time with us. Mild sedation is available for patients wishing to have it.
Because Dr. Ragen is so experienced, blepharoplasty takes only about ten minutes per eyelid. Throughout the surgery, you will feel relaxed and experience no pain. When the operation is completed, you are fully awake and can literally stand up and walk out of the operating room. In fact, many patients drive themselves to and from the surgery.
