Lower Eyelid Surgery / Lower Blepharoplasty

Who is suitable for Lower Eyelid Surgery?
Lower eyelid surgery usually benefits individuals with:

  1. Moderate to severe eyebags
  2. Severe skin laxity of the lower eyelids

What is “Scarless” Eyebag Surgery?
This is a method of eyebag surgery which involves a hidden incision through the inner lining (conjunctiva) of the lower eyelid, approaching and treating the eyebag from an internal approach. It leaves no external scars and is known as the TransConjunctival approach

Who is suitable for “Scarless” Eyebag Surgery?
The ideal candidate for the TransConjunctival approach is a younger patient with isolated eyebags without significant skin laxity.

What is Fat Redistribution?
Fat Redistribution describes the use of the eyebag fat to fill in the hollows sometimes found just below the eyebags known as tear troughs. This advanced technique adds to the long-term result by avoiding potential hollowing from excessive fat removal and potentially avoids the need for fillers to address the tear troughs which appear with age.

How long does the surgery take?
The surgery usually takes 60 to 90 minutes under local anaesthetic and light sedation.

What is the recovery time?
Most of our patients return to work within a week.
