Lower Blepharoplasty (Eyelid) Surgery
Bags under eyes, excess skin under eyes.
How Lower Blepharoplasty Fixes the Problem:
Lower blepharoplasty removes the excess fat causing the fullness or bags under your eyes. If excess skin is present, it can be removed at the same time as the fat.
What to Expect during Blepharoplasty:
The procedure can be done under intravenous sedation. An incision is made inside the eyelid and the excess fat is removed or repositioned. If excess skin is present, an incision is made immediately underneath the eyelashes and the excess skin is removed. Very fine dissolvable stitches are used to close the incision, which is barely detectable once healed.
Bruising and swelling generally resolves in 7-10 days. Strenous activity is to be avoided for 2 weeks. We recommend sunscreen and sun avoidance during the healing period.
What You Will Notice After Blepharoplasty:
As bruising and swelling begin to subside you will notice improved contour underneath the lower eyelids with less fullness and puffiness.
