The lower eyelid muscle weakens and underlying fat pads bulge forward producing bags.

The  most common methods of performing lower blepharoplasty are: through a direct incision made just below the lower lashes. The surgeon lifts the skin and muscle to remove a small amount of fat. Excess skin and muscle are then trimmed from the lower lid. . Fine sutures are used to close the incisions, thereby minimizing the visibility of any scar.

Blepharoplasty - Possible risks and complications

When eyelid surgery is performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, complications are infrequent and usually minor.You can reduce your risks by closely following your surgeon's instructions both before and after surgery. The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can only be determined at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.

Blepharoplasty - After care

After surgery,  Your eyelids may feel tight and sore as the anesthesia wears off, but you can control any discomfort with the pain medication prescribed by your surgeon. If you feel any severe pain, call your surgeon immediately. You should keep your head elevated for several days, and use cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising for a few days. Swelling and bruising varies considerably from person to person. Bruising typically disappears within seven to ten days. For the first week, you’ll need to avoid activities that dry the eyes, including reading, watching television, wearing contacts, and using a computer. Also avoid excessive blinking, which leads to increased swelling. You should also wear dark sunglasses for a couple of weeks to protect your eyes from wind and sun irritation. For the first three or four weeks, you should avoid any activity that increases blood flow to the eyes, including bending, lifting, crying and sports. Dr Rodrigo will let you know when you are ready for exercise. Also avoid drinking alcohol, which can lead to fluid retention and delay recovery.
