What type of eyelid surgery incisions are there?
Your surgeon will provide a recommendation for what incisions to make during your eyelid procedure. There are a few options for eyelid surgery.
Upper Eyelid Surgery
Your surgeon will mark the natural lines and creases of your lids and keep your scars as hidden as possible along these natural folds. Fine sutures will be used to close the incisions, thereby minimizing scar visibility.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
In traditional blepharoplasty, your surgeon will make the incision in an inconspicuous site along the lash line and smile creases of the lower lid.
In a transconjunctival approach, your surgeon corrects eyelid puffiness caused by excess fat by making an incision inside the lower eyelid. This technique requires no external incision, but it cannot be used to remove excess skin.
Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery
If you have issues with both your upper and lower eyelids, your surgeon may recommend a combined approach.
Will I have any eyelid surgery scars?
Any scars from your eye lift will be hidden in your natural eyelid creases, making them almost indiscernible.
