Lower Lid Blepharoplasty: Both Art & Science

Posted by admin

What is lower eyelid blepharoplasty?

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a common facial aesthetic procedure to rejuvenate the under eye area. Most commonly, it addresses under eye bags, sagging skin and fat pockets.  Unfortunately, since this is such a delicate area, many lower lid blepharoplasty patients are left with unwanted complications and an unnatural look.  Issues such as a droopy lower lid (lower lid retraction), a change in the shape of the eye, and a rounded eye (canthal rounding) can be devastating and a lifelong issue.
