Lower Blepharoplasty

Excess fat under the lower eyelids causes “bags under the eyes” and a tired appearance.

Case 1: In this surgery, the extra fat needs to be trimmed off, as well as the extra skin. Recovery is in 2-3 weeks.

Blepharoplasty in Men

Case 2: In men, blepharoplasty is a little different than in women, because we try to avoid excessive tightness, which tends to give a more feminine look. Leaving a little skin overhang maintains a more masculine appearance.


Blepharorrhaphy is the suturing of the eyelid to itself. This makes the eyelid fold over, onto itself.

Unlike blepharoplasty, blepharorrhaphy is reversible and has a much smaller scar. However, it is not well suited for patients with moderate to severe excess of eyelid skin or fat. It is offered to patients with little excess eyelid skin or fat.
