Lower Blepharoplasty

Rejuvenation the lower eyelid may include fat excision or repositioning, skin excision or mid-face elevation. The majority of patients we see will benefit from transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty.

This technique involves excising or repositioning the fatty compartments of the lower eyelid through a hidden incision inside the lid. This approach provides a natural, non-surgical look after surgery which preserves the structure and function of the Orbicularis muscles in the lower eyelid.

Some patients have excess skin in the lower eyelid as well, and benefit from a "pinch" skin excision. This can be performed alone or in conjunction with transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty. This technique also preserves the Orbicularis Oculi muscle and ensures preservation of the lower eyelid contour and position.

Some patients also benefit from lateral canthopexy to stabalize the lower eyelid position at the time of lower blepharoplasty. A canthopexy is a stitch which is placed near the outer corner of the lower eyelid inside the tissues. This stitch keeps the eyelid in position while healing. It dissolves in four to six weeks.

In patients with significant lower eyelid laxity, a canthopexy or full thickness lower eyelid tightening is necessary. Some patients may require mid-face elevation to rejuvenate the lower eyelid-cheek complex.
