Lower Blepharoplasty

If you’re noticing under-eye bags or wrinkles that make you look tired or older than you feel, Lower Blepharoplasty, offered at our Greenwich Village location, could be an ideal solution for you.

What is Lower Blepharoplasty? 

Lower Blepharoplasty, also known as lower eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at improving the appearance of the lower eyelids. This surgery is designed to remove or reposition excess skin, fat, and sometimes muscle from the lower eyelids. It’s a popular choice for those looking to diminish under-eye bags, reduce wrinkles, and create a more youthful and refreshed eye appearance.

How Does Lower Blepharoplasty Work? 

Here’s an overview of what to expect with a Lower Blepharoplasty procedure:

  1. Consultation: Your journey starts with a consultation with one of our skilled dermatologists. We assess your lower eyelids, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if you’re an ideal candidate for the procedure.

    Preparation: On the day of the surgery, the area around your eyes will be cleaned, and you’ll receive local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

    The Procedure: The surgeon makes precise incisions, typically just below the lash line or inside the lower eyelid (transconjunctival approach). Excess fat, skin, and muscle are then removed or repositioned as needed. The incisions are meticulously closed, minimizing any visible scarring.

    Recovery: Post-surgery, patients usually experience some swelling and bruising, which generally subside within one to two weeks. Most individuals return to their normal activities within two weeks, following the specific aftercare instructions provided by our specialists.

Who is a Good Candidate for Lower Blepharoplasty? 

Good candidates for this procedure are individuals experiencing under-eye bags, puffiness, or wrinkles. Suitable candidates should be in overall good health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations of the surgery’s outcome. Lower Blepharoplasty is particularly effective for cosmetic improvement, but it can also enhance your overall facial appearance by making you look more rested and alert.

What Are the Expected Results? 

After Lower Blepharoplasty, patients typically notice a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance around the eyes. The removal or repositioning of fat and skin in the lower eyelids can significantly reduce under-eye bags and wrinkles, leading to a more refreshed and vibrant look. Results are generally long-lasting, but it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and proper skin care to preserve the benefits of the surgery.
