Lower Blepharoplasty Before & Afters

Lower Blepharoplasty restores a youthful eye appearance. You may benefit from a Lower Blepharoplasty if you have:

  • Bags beneath your eyes
  • Fines lines on the lower eyelid
  • Puffiness below the eyes
  • Excessive fat deposits beneath the eyes

Upper Blepharoplasty may be combined with Lower Lid Blepharoplasty, depending on your goals and other factors. In all cases, our experienced oculoplastic surgeons will achieve a natural-looking result in which the lower and upper eyelids have a harmonious and balanced appearance, which may or may not require both upper and lower blepharoplasty.

During Lower Blepharoplasty Philadelphia facial surgeon Dr. Morgenstern will make an incision in either your lower lash line or on the inside of the lower eyelid, effectively hiding any scar. The incision location depends on what you and your surgeon plan to accomplish with the procedure. Oftentimes, we combine this surgery with CO2 Laser Resurfacing to help tighten the skin of the lower lid. Although Lower Blepharoplasty is a fairly common procedure, it is important to choose a surgeon who is well-qualified to perform surgeries around the eyes. For natural-looking results, it is important that the surgeon remove the right amount of fat and skin without removing too much. Our eyelid surgeons are uniquely trained and experienced in facial and eye-area surgeries. Our goal is to give you the best Lower Blepharoplasty Philadelphia has to offer.

You may feel some discomfort and pain after your surgery. Your surgeon can prescribe pain medication for relief. You can expect to experience some swelling, irritation, or dry eyes for a few days. Your surgeon may cover your eyelids with gauze.

Once at home, you can apply cold compresses to help with the pain and swelling. Most of the swelling should subside within two weeks. Your sutures will dissolve on their own, or your surgeon will remove them a few days after your surgery.

Your surgeon will inform you of any symptoms or signs to watch for during your recovery. If you experience any severe pain or notice a change in your vision, call our office immediately. You should be able to return to work and your normal activities within a few days after your procedure. However, you should avoid any strenuous exercises for a minimum of two weeks.

Philadelphia Lower Blepharoplasty patients will not be able to wear contact lenses or eye makeup for the first two weeks following the procedure and should wear dark sunglasses to protect their eyes from sun and wind. It takes several weeks to fully recover from a Blepharoplasty. The incision will be pinkish for a few months but fade over time to the point where it becomes barely visible and unnoticeable by other people. In fact, you will look rejuvenated and not so tired.

What Are the Risks?

Any plastic surgery procedure carries some degree of risk. Some of the risks involved with a Blepharoplasty can include bad reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, bruising, infection, scarring, and swelling. During your consultation, the surgeon will discuss the risks and side effects associated with this surgery.

What is the best age for Lower Blepharoplasty?

There isn't a specific "best" age for Lower Blepharoplasty since everyone ages differently. Typically, people start considering this procedure in their late 30s to 40s when signs of aging become more noticeable.

How long does Lower Blepharoplasty last?

The results of Lower Blepharoplasty can be quite long-lasting. Most people enjoy the benefits for many years, often 10 to 15 years, depending on factors like skin type, age, and lifestyle.

How painful is a Lower Blepharoplasty?

The procedure itself is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation, so you won't feel pain during it. Afterward, you might experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising, which is normal.

What is the downtime for Lower Blepharoplasty?

Downtime varies from person to person, but most people can expect to take about one to two weeks off from work and other regular activities. Swelling and bruising are common during the first week.
