What is Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty?

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that can rejuvenate the lower eyelids, eliminating stubborn fat and droopiness below the eyes. Sagging eyelids are a common result of aging, and when they develop in the lower eyelids, they can cause a tired or weathered appearance.

If you are suffering from related symptoms in the upper eyelids as well, you may want to combine your procedure with an upper eyelid blepharoplasty. Eyelid Surgeons of Tampa Bay specializes in blepharoplasty procedures to help patients maintain a youthful appearance and achieve their cosmetic goals.

Am I A Good Candidate for Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty?

If you have developed an aged appearance due to the sagging of the lower eyelids, or excess fat protrusion (bags), you may be a good candidate for lower eyelid blepharoplasty. However, the best way to determine if you are a suitable candidate for a lower eyelid blepharoplasty is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Mohadjer.

During your consultation, you and Dr. Mohadjer will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine if lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a good fit for you. At this point, we will be able to help you schedule your treatment or find a suitable alternative.

What is the Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty Treatment Like?

The lower eyelid blepharoplasty procedure is performed using anesthesia for your safety and comfort. To begin the procedure, an incision will be made within the natural folds of the eyelids, where any incisions will be well-concealed. After incisions are made, fat and excess skin will be removed or repositioned into hollow areas to produce a more youthful appearance around the eyes. Dr. Mohadjer often combines this with laser skin resurfacing  of the lower eyelids or the entire face for a significant rejuvenation.

What is the Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty Recovery Process Like?

The initial recovery period following your lower eyelid blepharoplasty will take about one to two weeks. During this time, it is common to experience some stiffness in the eyelids, as well as some blurred vision. Patients are encouraged to take time off of work and other activities during this time in order to rest and allow the body to heal. After this recovery period, you will be able to return to your usual activities and the majority of side effects should have resolved.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty?

After the lower eyelid blepharoplasty procedure, your results will become visible as any side effects fade. You can expect to notice a more youthful appearance within a few days of treatment, with the full results becoming visible within a few weeks. The results from the lower eyelid blepharoplasty procedure will last for many years to come.
