Transconjunctival Lower Blepharoplasty
Eye enhancement procedures must be carried out with the utmost precision and expertise. Because the eyes are such a distinctive characteristic, any alteration to them requires individualized care. Dr. Renato Calabria believes that the non-invasive approach of transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty is the key to delivering success to his male patients. Furthermore, the gentle nature of this operation makes it an ideal choice for the busy man who wishes to look refreshed, but not “overdone,” with a short recovery period.
What Transconjunctival Lower Blepharoplasty Improves
Puffy EyesMany patients have a genetic predisposition for accumulating fat around the eyes, and it is not uncommon for younger patients to suffer from eye puffiness. The puffiness, or “bags,” is due to the presence of excess fat in the area, and it can produce a tired or aged look. Transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty is designed to reduce the appearance of “bags” under the eyes by removing or repositioning fat.
Dark CirclesMen are also commonly concerned about having dark circles under the eyes. Dark circles are caused by a deposition of a pigment called hemosiderin. While the pigmentation can be very difficult to solve, the under-eye swelling that accentuates and highlights the dark circles can be corrected. Once the excess fat is removed, the dark circles are much less pronounced, and the patient appears more awake.
Benefits of Transconjunctival Lower Blepharoplasty
Transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty is an excellent procedure for the male patient wishing to look more awake and refreshed without compromising his inherent qualities. The excess fat is gently removed and, in some cases, repositioned to avoid a skeletonized look. Dr. Calabria strives to ensure that his patients receive natural yet stunning results.
No Visible Scarring
Transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty is performed through a small incision created within the conjunctiva of the eyelids so there is no visible external scar. The dissection is performed meticulously with electrocautery, which prevents any blood loss from occurring. This procedure is ideal for men because there is no visible scar and the downtime is minimal.
The recovery period following the transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty is limited to only a few days.
This procedure is a scarless approach to eye enhancement because the incision is placed within the eyelid. There is no chance of ectropion, scleral show, and other visible complications that can arise from traditional lower blepharoplasty techniques.
The cost of your transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty procedure will vary depending on the extent of correction necessary to achieve your desired results. You will receive an accurate quote for your eye enhancement surgery during your consultation with Dr. Calabria.
You may experience minor discomfort following your eye enhancement procedure. Dr. Calabria provides his patients with oral medication for pain management during their recovery.
