What is transconjunctival blepharoplasty?

Posted on: | No Comments

Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is a surgery to correct eye bags on younger patients. A small incision on the inside of the lower eyelid is performed. It is a gentle, precise, safe and tissue-sparing procedure for eyelid rejuvenation. Patients contemplating eyelid surgery for eye bags and lower eyelid laxity should consider the benefits associated, as the transconjunctival approach offers several aesthetic and long-term functional advantages compared to traditional techniques.

blepharoplastyTransconjuctival blepharoplasty can be referred to as ‘tissue-sparing lower blepharoplasty’, ‘muscle-conserving blepharoplasty’, or ‘no-touch blepharoplasty’. Basically, they all refer to the concept of leaving the structural middle-layer of the eyelid.  Transconjunctival blepharoplasty instantly approaches the deep plane and allows very precise adjustments to the orbital fat.  For patients with good skin elasticity, a transconjunctival blepharoplasty is the only procedure needed for the successful removal of eye bags. It is an ideal surgery for younger patients.

Patients with a combination of both herniated fat (eye bags) and minimal loose skin will benefit from transconjunctival blepharoplasty.  With traditional blepharoplasty, it is necessary to perform a small additional incision starting below the lashes, which allows for both skin tightening and muscle restoration.

The recovery time for this surgery is 7 days and can be performed as an out-patient surgery.  Dr. Alfredo Harris at NewMeTJ can offer you a complimentary consultation to see if you are a good candidate for a transconjuntival blepharoplasty.
