Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty is the gold standard to correct puffy, sagging and tired-looking lower eyelids. During a short operation (normally 1 hour), excess skin and/or fat is removed from the lower eyelids to create a fresh and more youthful appearance. Depending on the surgery, incisions can be made along a natural line or wrinkle of the lower eyelid just below the lash line to create discrete scars that are well hidden once fully healed or from inside of the lower eyelid for an invisible scar.
Aesthetic outcomes can be enhanced when combined with other treatments such as Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty, CO2 laser, Morpheus 8 or chemical peels. Intense sun exposure should be avoided one month following treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
By making an incision along the natural skin lines of the eyelid, it is possible to remove skin and/or fat leaving a thin, discreet scar along the natural skin crease of the lower eyelid. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty helps diminish lower eyelid ‘bags’ and excess skin. When only fat is removed or repositioned, the incision can be made on the internal surface of the lower eyelid. There is no visible scar in transconjunctival blepharoplasty. Initial bruising and swelling resolving in as little as one to two weeks, however, the final outcome of the surgery may not be seen for several weeks.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LOWER EYELID BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty restores lower eyelid harmony. By removing excess skin and fat, the eyelid will appear smoother and better defined, giving a more youthful appearance.
External skin resurfacing with a chemical peel or laser treatment may be possible at the same time as surgery to increase the rate of healing and improve the appearance of your skin.
