Lower blepharoplasty is one of the most common oculofacial surgeries performed by Dr. Abbott at her state-of-the-art surgical facility in Dallas. If you’re suffering from dark circles, puffy lower eyelids, and other signs of aging, lower blepharoplasty in Dallas can help you reclaim your youth.
Aging of the Lower Eyelids
Lower blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of the lower eyelids. The procedure is relatively straightforward and is usually performed under twilight anesthesia. It involves making hidden incisions on the inside of the lower eyelids, following which redundant fat pads are either conservatively debulked, sculpted, and repositioned. In some patients, it is necessary to perform tightening in the outer corners and occasionally skin removal. Dr Abbott may also recommend pairing lower eyelid surgery with nonsurgical rejuvenation of the skin using a resurfacing laser. Strategic techniques to make the lower eyelids look smoother, tighter, and more youthful are employed.
