Lower blepharoplasty addresses the lower eyelid bags with a full understanding of their cause. Lower eyelid bags are caused by a 3 step aging process that must be reversed to restore the natural, youthful anatomy. 1. bulging of the lower eye socket fat. 2 drooping and sagging of the lower eyelid skin. 3. dropping of the cheek, leaving a visible hollow between the eye socket and cheek. With a lower blepharoplasty surgery, we address all 3 components of lower eyelid aging. First, a small incision is made in the inside of the lower eyelid and a careful, gentle dissection method used to identify the bulging lower eye fat. These eyelid fat bags are artistically sculpted with the aim of leaving a natural, smooth, lower eyelid contour (and not causing deep under-eye hollows). In some cases, this fat is preserved and repositioned to fill in the existing hollow solving problem #3. In the second step, the skin of the lower eyelid is pinched and only the excess skin is carefully removed, leaving the lower eyelid muscle intact. The wound is sewn right under the eyelashes, and with healing, quickly becomes invisible. Finally, fat transfer, or fillers can be used to fill the remaining under eye hollows, if necessary.
Understanding Lower Blepharoplasty
Lower blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at addressing concerns such as puffiness, excess skin, or wrinkles beneath the eyes. It focuses on enhancing the lower eyelids, rejuvenating the eye area, and improving overall facial appearance.
Root Causes of Eyelid Changes
Lower eyelid changes, including puffiness or wrinkles, often result from aging, genetics, or lifestyle factors, contributing to a tired or aged look. Lower blepharoplasty targets these issues to achieve a more youthful appearance.
Identifiable Effects and Symptoms
The procedure's effects include:
Reduction of puffiness or bags beneath the eyes.
Smoothing out wrinkles or excess skin.
Enhancing the lower eyelid area and creating a refreshed appearance.
Effective Treatment Approach
During the surgery, excess skin, fat, or tissue is adjusted or removed from the lower eyelids to achieve a more rejuvenated appearance. The outpatient procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort and swelling.
