Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Blepharoplasty of the Lower Eyelid
Cosmetic surgery on the lining of the lower eyelid is a discreet approach with significantly positive results in select patients. This method is preferred in cases where there is fat herniation (fat pockets) without significant increase in the skin of the lower eyelids.
Since this method does not cause scarring on the lower eyelids, Dr. Sazgar favors this surgical method.
Surgery through the Skin of the Lower Eyelid (Transcutaneous Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty)
With increasing age, the skin of the lower eyelids sags and becomes wrinkled. In many cases, this malformation coincides with fat pockets and thickened muscles in the lower eyelids. The surgical technique for rejuvenation of the lower eyelids is performed by making an incision just below the lash line followed by correction and restoration of thickened muscles and fat compartments.
Lower Eyelid Lagophthalmos Surgery
Laxity may occur in lower eyelids due to injury, trauma, or bad prior surgeries. This causes the eye to remain open. Surgical correction of this malformation is carried out by advanced blepharoplastic procedures using skin grafts from other parts of the body.
