Lower Eyelid - Transcutanous (External) Movie

Blepharoplasty

    • Eyelids (and your eyes)  are, perhaps, what other people notice initially.
    • Eyelid surgery to improve the appearance of the eyelids is often called 'eyelift' or 'blepharoplasty'.


Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty. 

  • This can be performed via an skin incision (trans-cutaneous) or via the inside of the eyelid (trans-conjunctival).
  • Lower Blepharoplasty reduces excess fat in the lower eyelids.
  • The excess fat is removed and incisions are closed with fine sutures.
  • Incisions made on the inside of the eyelids are not visible.
  • Incisions made on the outside of the lower eyelids are barely visible and fade over time.
