Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty

Looking for the most effective way to eliminate the bags under your eyes and/or dark circles? We have the answer!

At The Adams Center, we utilize a newer blepharoplasty technique called transconjunctival laser blepharoplasty.

Standard scalpel blepharoplasty can cause the support for the eyelid to be lost when the surgeon cuts through the muscle which supports the lower eyelid. The scarring produced by the surgery may pull the eyelid down. If the patient has a lax lower eyelid to begin with, the situation is made much worse.

Transconjunctival blepharoplasty avoids injury to the supporting eyelid muscle by making a small incision with a laser through the conjunctiva (the pink part of the eyelid on the inside). The fat is then removed or repositioned from the inside and the lid is tightened.

Benefits of the transconjunctival laser blepharoplasty include:

  • No visible scar on the outside of the lower eyelid
  • Eyelid shape is not changed
  • Healing and recovery times are usually faster
  • Bruising is typically less severe
  • Sad eyed look or hound dog eyes is avoided

An Arcus Marginalis Release or Tear Trough Implant may be performed to correct dark circles with the transconjunctival blepharoplasty, or as a part of our Total Eyelid Rejuvenation program.
