Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower Blepharoplasty: Targets the lower eyelid, addressing puffiness caused by excess fat deposits or sagging skin. This can create a tired or aged appearance. During the procedure, an incision is made either hidden beneath the lower lash line or inside the eyelid itself. Excess fat is removed or repositioned, and sagging skin might be tightened.

Pros: Reduces puffiness in the lower eyelids, creates a smoother and more youthful under-eye area, improves the appearance of dark circles (indirectly).

Cons: Potential risks include dry eyes, temporary bleeding and bruising, lower eyelid malposition, and visible scarring (depending on incision placement). May require local or general anesthesia.

Alternatives: Fillers can temporarily camouflage puffiness for a non-surgical approach.

Recovery Time: Takes 1-2 weeks for swelling and bruising to subside. Avoid strenuous activity and eye strain for a few weeks.

Disclaimer: Consulting a board-certified ophthalmic plastic surgeon or dermatologist is crucial to discuss candidacy, potential complications, and whether lower blepharoplasty alone or combined with upper blepharoplasty is the best approach.
