An eyelid lift, technically known as a blepharoplasty, is an ideal cosmetic operation for people with tired, sagging eyes. With an eyelid lift, excess fat and tissue around the upper or lower eyelid is removed surgically for a lifted, more alert appearance.
There are a variety of techniques available for an eyelid lift. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is one of the more widely used techniques. This type of eyelid lift avoids making incisions on the outside of the eyelid. This approach focuses specifically on fat removal from the lower eyelid. A transconjunctival eyelid lift is an ideal technique if you do not need to enhance the skin of the eyelid.
Consult with a board-certified cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Perhez Jaffer, who will be able to recommend the right kind of eyelid lift technique.
