What Is Transconjunctival Lower-Eyelid Blepharoplasty?

Published on February 20, 2018

Transconjunctival lower-eyelid blepharoplasty is a technique used to rejuvenate a patient’s lower eyelids when they are sagging or bulging. Unlike other lower-eyelid surgery options, this technique does not require the use of any external incisions, which means no post-surgical marks will be visible once you have fully healed.

The lower eyelid is first carefully retracted in order to allow an incision to be made on its inside. This gives the surgeon access to the fat in the area.
The fat can then be repositioned or extracted from the eyelid by applying slight pressure to the area.

An immense amount of precision and care must be used during the procedure due to the sensitivity of the surrounding tissue. This precision is also necessary to avoid extracting too much fat from the eyelid; extracting too much fat can create a sunken and hollow appearance.

During your initial consultation, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert True will thoroughly examine the condition of your lower eyelids in order to formulate a personalized and effective surgical plan. Contact our office to schedule a consultation today.
