These are procedures done to reduce the baggy lower eyelids or puffy lower eyelids or loose upper eyelids. These bags under the eyes produce an aged or tired look to the face.
The upper eyelid bags can restrict peripheral vision reducing the field of vision and hence needs to be corrected. In the upper lids, its usually more of the excess skin which needs to be excised also called a “Pinch Blepharoplasty”. The sutures are out in a week and the scar is well hidden. In the lower blepharoplasty, the procedure involves making a cut under the eyelids and removing the excess skin and fat is excised or redraped as the case may be under the eyelids to give a better look. The incision is just under the eyelashes and heals well. It requires proper evaluation and planning. Sometimes a Mid Facelift may be planned together. Or, the Blepharoplasty can be combined with regular Facelifts.
