About our lower lid blepharoplasty
Under the guidance of Dr. Moubayed, our procedure focuses on addressing cosmetic concerns in the lower eyelid area. Techniques such as the transconjunctival incision are utilized to carefully address eyelid fat and reposition the eyelid skin. This meticulous approach aims to minimize potential risks and achieve a natural-looking outcome. Post-procedure, the goal is to have a naturally positioned eyelid that contributes to an overall balanced facial appearance.
Beyond the procedure: A comprehensive approach to rejuvenation
The engagement with our patients extends beyond the surgical procedure. At Clinique Face MD, we take a comprehensive approach to cosmetic services, considering additional treatments like laser skin resurfacing when suitable. This approach aims to support a harmonious and lasting aesthetic outcome.

Lower blepharoplasty: a comprehensive approach to eyelid rejuvenation
Ideal patients are those looking to enhance their appearance through cosmetic surgeries like blepharoplasty, without the potential risks associated with upper eyelid surgery. The surgeon’s approach aims to preserve a natural eyelid position post-surgery. Additionally, while it’s common for some to combine this with procedures such as laser skin resurfacing or upper blepharoplasty for a comprehensive eyelid lift, the primary focus remains on rejuvenating the lower eyelid structures. It’s essential, however, for candidates to understand the days and weeks after surgery will involve recovery treatments like ice packs and eye ointments to mitigate common complications and promote effective healing.
Recovery insights following lower blepharoplasty
Recovery from blepharoplasty surgery, especially when combined with upper eyelid blepharoplasty or other surgical procedures, varies from patient to patient. Here’s what to anticipate:
- Initial phases: Expect swelling and bruising, typically peaking three days after surgery. Cold compresses can help during this period. Eye ointments will be prescribed to counter conditions like dryness, but may cause some blurred vision.
- Daily activities: Reducing activities like heavy lifting reduces risk of bleeding. Sleeping with the head elevated minimizes swelling. It’s best to limit screen time and also avoid direct sun exposure.
- Incision care: Proper attention to incision sites is vital to minimize visible or external scarring. Laser treatments might help in reducing any unwanted scars.
- Medical considerations: Patients with medical conditions affecting blood pressure should exercise caution. It’s crucial to share your complete medical history with your surgeon.
- Final results: As days progress, the eyelid’s natural crease begins to showcase a more youthful appearance. Though recovery time can span a few weeks, the long-lasting results evolve over months. The excision of fatty deposits can influence outcomes.
- Continued care: Regular check-ins with your surgeon are pivotal. Achieving the best results, especially involving the eyelids, depends on both the expert execution of the procedure and dedicated aftercare.

Potential risks of lower blepharoplasty
While lower blepharoplasty promises transformative results, understanding potential risks and complications is paramount. With both surgical prowess and informed decision-making, patients can navigate the process safely. Here’s a deep dive into what one might encounter:
- Pain: Mild discomfort or pain is common after lower eyelid surgery, but it is typically manageable with prescribed pain medications. Most patients find relief within a few days.
- Bleeding: Although some bruising and minor bleeding are expected initially, these issues are typically temporary. Your surgeon can provide guidance on minimizing these concerns during the recovery period.
- Infection: Infection risk is low, thanks to strict hygiene protocols in surgical settings. Following post-operative care instructions and keeping the surgical area clean can further reduce this risk.
- Scarring: Skilled surgeons strive to minimize visible scarring by making incisions along natural creases or inside the lower eyelid. Any scars that do form usually fade over time and can often be improved with one or multiple laser treatments.
- Double Vision: Double vision can occur temporarily as the eyes adjust to the changes. It usually resolves on its own within a few days to weeks, but your surgeon can offer guidance if needed.
- Eyelid Retraction: In rare cases, eyelid retraction (pulling away from the eye) may occur. Surgeons take great care to prevent this issue, and when it does occur, additional procedures can correct it.
- Eye Dryness: Some temporary dryness and irritation may occur, but it is manageable with lubricating eye drops or ointments. Your surgeon will advise on appropriate eye care during the recovery period.
- Vision Loss (Extremely Rare): While the risk of vision loss is extremely rare, it’s essential to choose a board-certified surgeon with extensive experience to minimize this risk. Comprehensive pre-operative assessments help identify potential concerns.
- Dissatisfaction with Results: If you are dissatisfied with your initial results, revision surgery can often address concerns and achieve the desired outcome. Open communication with your surgeon is key to achieving the best results.Choose a practitioner experienced in both lid procedures and overall facial aesthetics to ensure safety and desired results.
