Correction of the Lower Eyelid
Blepharoplasty of the lower eyelids enables people’s bags under the eyes to be corrected. Different from that of the upper eyelids, this intervention consists either of removing the excess fatty tissue, or of distributing the fatty tissue better, getting rid of the surplus skin and tautening the muscle.
Blepharoplasty of the lower eyelids is performed under local anaesthesia for about an hour.
The first technique mainly seeks to remove the fatty tissue.
The second possibility, called the Hamta technique, seeks to distribute the fatty tissue along the orbit, especially in order to lessen the black rings.
Result and Post-Operative Treatment
The patient can return home immediately after the operation.
Some swellings and contusions can appear.
The stitches are removed four to seven days after the intervention; social activity can be resumed after a week.
Know more aout it
- In the event of a request for blepharoplasty, the surgeon, first of all, will determine the true cause of the bags. They can be due not only to an excess of fatty tissue, but also to an accumulation of liquid. Although the fatty tissue is a constant factor, the quantity of the liquid varies from hour to hour. When the bags are indeed caused by an excess of fatty tissue excess, an incision under the lower eyelashes enables the tissue to be extracted. Most of the time, the surgeon also removes the skin. This technique also makes it easy to tauten the circular eye muscle.
