Lower eyelid surgery, also known as lower blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that addresses issues like under-eye circles, bagginess under the lower eyelid, and other signs of aging. Dr. Nadeau performs a highly customized lower eyelid surgery to reposition the unwanted fat tissues, trim away excess skin tissues, and restore your eyelids’ youthful appearance and vitality.
What is Lower Eyelid Surgery?
As you grow older, the fat pads under the eyelids droop and sag, leading to unwanted bags under the eyes, dark circles, and puffiness. The lower eyelid surgery involves making inconspicuous incisions to remove excess skin tissues, reposition the unwanted fat tissues, and make the region under the eyes look young and tight. The incisions are usually made inside the lower eyelids to facilitate skin and fat remodeling.
