Even a minor error can lead to an uneven result. Many facial plastic surgeons do not offer lower eyelid surgery as it requires top-level surgical techniques for a result that appears even, natural, and refreshed.

What is lower eyelid surgery?

Lower eyelid surgery is a very delicate procedure, often performed by placing an incision within the lower eyelid, leaving no surgical scars. The excess drooping skin is surgically removed, while fat and drooping tissue below the eyes is tightened, smoothed, and lifted. Custom alterations to smooth the transition from the lower lids to the upper cheeks to fill in hollows may also be part of the surgery, based upon individual need.
