LOWER EYELID REJUVENATION

A common complaint of patients is that they look tired but don’t feel tired. This is often the result of bulging fat pockets in the lower lid combined with a tight attachment of the skin at the junction of the lower lid and the cheek known as the tear trough. It is frequently one of the early signs associated with the aging process. Dr. Forley approaches this concern with both a non-surgical and a surgical option. Camouflage of the bulging fat can be achieved with the use of an injectable hyaluronic filler at the tear trough to aid in blending the transition across the lid-cheek junction. Although this can improve early changes, the fundamental cause of the problem remains unaltered. An advanced surgical technique that Dr. Forley utilizes to treat this issue involves releasing the attachment of the tear trough below the eyelid from the inside so that there is no external scar. At the same time, the fat from the lower lid is repositioned to extend across the lid-cheek junction. This changes the orientation of the fat so that the bulging is reduced in conjunction with filling the depression below the lower lid. This procedure is known as a transconjunctival fat transposition lower blepharoplasty. During your consultation, Dr. Forley will discuss the options that would work best in your individual situation.
