If the eyes are truly the windows to our souls, then we want them to appear awake, alert and bright. But all too often, our eyelids show the first signs of aging. An eyelid lift can help you look years younger, reducing puffiness and saggy skin around the eyes, and with minimal downtime. You can be back to your normal routine in days.
Upper and lower eyelid surgery address the appearance of tiredness that results from excess skin and protruding fat. In severe cases, the skin may overhang the lashes of the upper lid and affect vision. Surgery must be done with tact and respect for the beautiful organization of the eyelid structures. Many “standard” eyelid procedures tend to remove too much fat, creating a hollow look. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon preserves the necessary amount of fat in order to avoid the hollow look. Surgery in this region should respect the soft curves of nature and allow for the natural dynamics of eyelid motion.
Transconjunctival Lower Blepharoplasty
In transconjunctival blepharoplasty, the doctor will reposition the fat in the lower eyelid to suspend the under eye “bags” without a hollow appearance. A small incision is made to reposition the built-up fat in the eyelid region. He repositions the fat, leaving the eyelid skin untouched. Most of the time, stitches are not necessary for this procedure.
Using the transconjunctival approach in a blepharoplasty has several advantages. There is no scarring in external areas of the skin around the eye. Also, there is less swelling resulting from the procedure, allowing you to get back to your life quickly. This procedure allows for a more precise sculpting of the areas around the lower eyelids.
