The upper eyelid can be corrected through an incision within the natural fold on the upper eyelid which allows removal of excess skin, tightening of muscle and removal or redistribution of excess fat. The lower lid, can be corrected through an incision just below the lashes in your eye’s natural crease or inside the lower lid. Through this incision, excess skin in the lower eyelid is removed and the excess fat can be repositioned or removed. A transconjunctival incision, is an alternate technique to correct lower eyelid conditions and redistribute or remove excess fat. The advantage with this technique is no skin is removed.
