Lower blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that is designed to reduce the appearance of bags and excess skin under the eyes. The surgery is performed by making a small incision on the inside of the lower eyelid. Through this incision, excess fat and skin can be removed or repositioned, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Recovery from lower eyelid surgery typically takes about one to two weeks. During this time, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area. However, these side effects are usually mild and can be managed with pain medication and cold compresses.

After the initial recovery period, most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities. However, it’s important to avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for several weeks to ensure proper healing. Patients should also protect their eyes from the sun and wear sunglasses when outdoors to prevent further damage.
