LOWER EYELID BLEPHAROPLASTY BETHESDA | COLUMBIA | WASHINGTON DC | FAIRFAX |
GREENBELT | HAYMARKET
eyelid blepharoplasty is approached either by a razor fine incision placed just beneath the
eyelashes (infraciliary) or from behind the eyelid (transconjunctival), in which case the skin is
not touched. Only the fat is sculpted and redraped to do away with the "pooches" of fat. Once
healed the lid will lie flatter, improving the darkness and shadowing effect caused by the
prolapsed fat and lid laxity.
blepharoplasty is often combined with other procedures, including upper lid surgery, mid-face and
/or lower facial rejuvenation, laser or chemical peels, botox and fillers.
