Lower Eyelid Surgery
Smoother Lower Eyelids For More Youthful Eyes
How can Lower Eyelid Surgery rejuvenate your eyes?
Dr. Bomer specializes in volume-conserving, lower eyelid skin pinch surgery – Lower eyelid Blepharoplasty. The delicate muscle beneath the eyelid skin is not dissected out, cauterized, or removed. This leads to a faster recovery and prevents the rounding of the eye that can occur after lower eyelid surgery in which the muscle is traumatized. The lower eyelid skin is smoother and more youthful after surgery. The shape of the eye is not changed.
Benefits of volume conserving, lower lid skin pinch:
- Quick recovery
- Lower eyelid skin is smoother and more youthful
- Eye shape does not change, results are natural
- Can be done under local anesthesia
- Long-lasting results
In some cases, age-related fat and bone loss under the eye leads to the herniation of orbital fat. If this orbital fat is removed, but the overall volume loss under the eye is not corrected, the patient will look even more hollow and not younger. While some patients benefit from fat removal at the same time as excess skin removal, many patients benefit from filler under the eye. This mimics the lost orbital rim bone and can lift the orbital fat back into place so it is no longer as visible.

Not everyone needs Lower Eyelid Surgery!
Loss of volume can be corrected with filler – Volume replacement with filler can often improve the hollowness that occurs with age under the eyes. In some cases what appears like a problem with excess orbital fat is actually volume loss around it. The solution is not removing the fat (leading to more volume loss and hollowing under the eyes) but restoring lost volume under the eye, which conceals the fat and creates a more youthful look. A consultation at Rejuvent and the analysis of your anatomy will lead to the correct diagnosis, optimal intervention, and the best outcome.
This patient was bothered by his under-eye appearance. Several Plastic Surgeons recommend he undergo lower eyelid surgery including fat removal, but that would have left him more hollow and not made him look younger. Placement of filler along the orbital rim in several sessions restored age-related lost volume and gave him a more youthful appearance without surgery, and with no downtime.

We recommend following this list before your surgery:
- One week before your surgery, avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (Advil, Motrin, Aleve, or Ibuprofen), Gingko Biloba, Vitamin E, or fish oil supplements. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding. If you require a pain remedy during this time period, it is ok to take Tylenol.
- Adding leafy greens to your diet will boost your Vitamin K and help to reduce the possibility of bruising and swelling.
- Avoid eating apples or large quantities of garlic before your surgery.
- Arnica supplements have been shown to reduce discomfort, bruising, and swelling from injectable procedures. Arnica pills may be started the day before or the day of treatment and should be continued until bruising has resolved. We carry Arnica supplements at Rejuvent and RejuventSkinCare.com
You will need a driver to take you home after surgery.
It is normal to experience soreness, bruising, swelling, tightness, and some degree of pain for the first few days following surgery. These conditions will lessen each day. Following blepharoplasty, lubricating eye drops will be prescribed to prevent dryness and protect your eyes. Excessive tearing, sensitivity to light, and double vision may be experienced immediately following the procedure. Incisions will be red and visible at first, and eyelids may be puffy and may feel numb for several days. Ice packs or cold compresses applied to your eyes can help reduce swelling. Pain is minimal, and stitches will be removed after one week.
