It is said that the eyes are the “windows to our souls”. If this is true, then it’s our desire for them to radiate alertness, vitality, and brilliance. However, the initial signs of aging often manifest in our eyelids. Fortunately, an eyelid lift surgery can turn back the clock, offering a more youthful appearance by diminishing puffiness and sagging skin around the eyes, all while requiring minimal recovery time.
Both upper and lower eyelid surgeries effectively address the weariness that comes from excessive skin and protruding fat. In more severe cases, the upper lid’s skin might extend beyond the lash line, impacting vision. It’s crucial to approach this surgery with sensitivity and a deep appreciation for the natural composition of the eyelid structures. Often, conventional eyelid procedures result in the removal of excessive fat, leading to a hollow appearance. Dr. Vinas takes care to maintain the appropriate amount of fat to avoid such an outcome. The surgical process within this area respects the gentle contours of nature and accommodates the inherent movements of the eyelids.
In the context of transconjunctival blepharoplasty, Dr. Vinas skillfully relocates the fat within the lower eyelid to alleviate the appearance of under-eye “bags” without inducing a hollow look. This is achieved through a small incision designed to reposition the accumulated fat within the eyelid region. The skin of the eyelid remains untouched during this procedure, and often, sutures are unnecessary.
Employing the transconjunctival approach within blepharoplasty offers numerous benefits. External skin areas around the eye remain free from scarring, and the procedure results in reduced swelling, enabling a swift return to daily life. This technique permits a more precise contouring of the lower eyelid vicinity, enhancing the overall aesthetic outcome.
