What is a lower blepharoplasty?

Tired of your lower eyelid bags and dark circles? Their removal is one of the most gratifying surgical procedures that can be performed to make you look younger and more refreshed.

A lower eyelid blepharoplasty tightens the lower eyelids and rids them of excess fat and skin. It is an outpatient procedure associated with minimal downtime and minimal discomfort.

What can lower blepharoplasty do?

A lower eyelid blepharoplasty:

  • Removes lower lid puffs
  • Lifts sagging lower eyelids
  • Addresses wrinkling and fullness
  • Fills the hollows that occur where the cheeks meet the under-eye.

Am I a good candidate?

Look in the mirror.  If you notice:

  • Excess skin in the under-eye area
  • Hollows under the eyes
  • Dark circles
  • Fullness in the lower eyelids, worse with smiling

You may be a good candidate for this procedure.

How is lower blepharoplasty performed?

At W Cosmetic Surgery®, we use a transconjunctival (behind-the-eyelid) approach in most patients to avoid scarring.

After you receive sedation, the skin is cleansed and the lower eyelid is numbed. No scalpel is used for surgery—either a light-based energy device (laser) or a radiofrequency energy device (Renuvion) is used to create the incisions.

If we decide to lift and tighten the lower eyelid, a small incision (5-7mm) is made in the outer corner of the eyelid.

If we laser the skin, we use a Sciton dual erbium laser to treat wrinkles and dark circles.

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty recovery

We understand that most patients would like to get back to their lives as quickly as possible. Luckily, patients are usually surprised at how little bruising occurs with this procedure and how quickly they are back to work, play, and social activities.

In general, if there is bruising, we treat the bruises using intense pulsed light in the office—a procedure that we have noted in a journal publication to effectively decrease the time you are bruised.

How long do lower blepharoplasty results last?

Results from a lower eyelid blepharoplasty last for several years, and sometimes last a lifetime.

Can I combine my lower blepharoplasty with other treatments?

Lower blepharoplasty can be combined with laser treatments to address dark circles and can be performed with other rejuvenation procedures.
