The transconjunctival no-scar lower blepharoplasty is a great procedure for the male patient wishing to look less tired. This procedure is ideal for men because there is no external scar and the down time is minimal.
The transconjunctival no-scar lower blepharoplasty is geared to improve the so called “bags” under the eyes. The “bags,” or fullness under the eyes, is due to the presence of excess fat in the area. The predisposition of this problem is somewhat genetic and it is not uncommon for younger patients in their thirties to have this issue.
The typical patient also usually complains about “dark circles” under his eyes. Dark circles are caused by a deposition of a pigment called hemosiderin. Unfortunately, this can be a very difficult problem to solve. What usually happens for patients who complain of both “dark circles” and bags under their eyes, is that the swelling in the lower eyelid area accentuates and highlights the dark circles, making them worst. Once the excess fat is removed the dark circles are much less visible and the tired look is gone.
The transconjuntival (no scar) blepharoplasty is performed through a small incision in the conjunctiva inside the eyelids, so there is no visible external scar. The dissection is performed very carefully with an electrocautery, so there is no blood loss whatsoever. The excess fat is gently removed and, in some cases, repositioned to avoid a skeletonized look.
The recovery period following the transconjunctival no-scar lower blepharoplasty is limited to only a few days and the result is very natural. With this no scar approach, there is no chance of ectropion, scleral show, and other typical complications of the traditional lower blepharoplasty. Furthermore, the minimal invasive nature of this operation makes it a must choice for the busy man who wishes to look refreshed but not “overdone,” and nothing like the appearance of a man’s eyelids determines how natural the result looks.
Top Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Renato Calabria believes that the non invasive approach of the transconjunctival no-scar lower blepharoplasty is the key of delivering success in the male patient.
