Eyelid surgery is one way for patients with imperfections and bags around the eyes to achieve a more youthful and well-rested appearance. As part of the process of aging, many men and women experience sagging, excess skin around the eyes, as well as bags underneath. Puffy eyelids may also impact the appearance of an individual, causing them to look tired or worn out. Sunken or wrinkled eyelids can also contribute to an aged look. With the help of our team at Hollywood Dermatology and Cosmetic Specialists, we may be able to provide certain eye surgeries to help restore one’s youthful appearance, while addressing common complaints around the eye area. This includes certain treatments such as transconjunctival blepharoplasty.
Understanding transconjunctival blepharoplasty
Traditional upper and lower eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty, is used to rejuvenate and refresh the eyes. During these procedures, fat, skin, and tissues are removed and recontoured to restore a more well-rested appearance to the eyes. However, with transconjunctival blepharoplasty, the doctor can use a unique technique to address bags underneath the eyes. With the transconjunctival technique during eye surgery, fatty deposits from the undereye are removed through an incision made on the interior of the eyelid. This not only achieves the results patients need, but does so without leaving any visible incision or scar. This maintains the natural appearance of the eyes and provides quality results.
Am I a candidate for blepharoplasty?
The best candidates for blepharoplasty procedures are individuals:
- Who have bags underneath the eyes

- Struggling with sunken in eyes or aging eyes
