Lower Eyelid Lift (Lower Blepharoplasty)
Lower eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure performed to eliminate excessive skin and fat pockets that form under the eyes, which make people look tired and older. This procedure can make a remarkable difference as it can restore youthful facial appearance. Dr. David Shamouelian, a highly-experienced facial plastic surgeon and board-certified head and neck surgeon in Beverly Hills, performs lower eyelid lift procedure, which can be combined with upper blepharoplasty, brow lift and other facial cosmetic surgeries.
Lower Eyelid Lift Approaches
Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty –Incision is made inside the lower eyelid where orbital fat is either repositioned or removed. Excess eyelid skin can also be removed during this procedure. This is the most suitable procedure for younger patients and for patients with minimal excess skin on the lower eyelid.
Transcutaneous Blepharoplasty – Fat or excess skin is removed through the incision that is made just a few millimeters below the lower eyelid lashes. It is suitable for older patients and for those with a significant amount of excess skin in the lower eyelid.
