Abstract :

Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty, improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes. Specifically, eyelid surgery can treat: Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision; Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids; Bags under the eyes; Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris; and excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid. A simple and novel method for lower lid blepharoplasty under local anesthesia recently published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology is reviewed and its benefits over traditional transconjunctival and transcutaneous blepharoplasties are discussed in detail. A broad and thorough understanding and basic skills will be outlined to the surgeon interested in lower lid blepharoplasty which would enable him to offer this safe and simple procedure for his patients.
