Lower eyelid surgery to address under-eye “bags” is a specialty of our plastic surgery team. Also called “eye lift surgery,” the technical term for this procedure is blepharoplasty of the lower eyelid (or lower blepharoplasty). In a transconjunctival blepharoplasty procedure, the plastic surgeon is able to “sculpt” the lower eyelid without the use of an external incision. By contrast, a transcutaneous blepharoplasty does require an external incision in order to remove excess skin. However, this incision should be almost invisible once it has healed. 

If you are “tired of always looking tired” because of under-eye bags that haven’t been helped by non-surgical methods, talk to us about your options. We can explain the procedures, costs and benefits via a short consultation, so contact the Surgical Institute today!
