Lower Lid Blepharoplasty
Eyelid skin is the thinnest skin on the body, and it is here that most people will show the signs of aging first. The lower lids can be especially problematic for people in that the skin is not only thin and wrinkled, but the fat which is around the eyes can move forward into the lid to produce the swollen “bags”. These fat pads will create a dark shadow on
the lid, and people will complain of the dark “circles”. This dark shadow is also called the tear trough.
In a traditional lower lid blepharoplasty, excess skin and fat are removed. While this initially produces a smooth contour to the lid, with time some people may start to look hollow from the lack of fat, and the lid can start to look very dark again. In a newer technique called “fat repositioning,” little or no fat is excised. Instead, the fat is preserved and moved down over the cheek bone. This helps to fill in the tear trough, which will smooth out the contour of the lid and decrease the appearance of the dark circles. It is much more rejuvenating to preserve the fat here than to excise it.
In this surgery, a CO2 laser is used to make an incision on the inside of the lower eyelid. Through this incision the fat pads are then moved down to fill in the tear trough. If there is any loose or excess skin, this can be excised surgically, and fine wrinkles can be tightened with a laser. The lower lids are very vascular, so most patients have bruising post-op. This surgery is usually performed with local sedation anesthesia.
