A friend of mine from Austin just had eyelid surgery and she looks amazing! She said it was transconjunctival blepharoplasty, which I’d never heard of before. What is this? Is it better than regular eyelid surgery?
A transconjunctival blepharoplasty is a blepharoplasty for the lower eyelids which is performed by making an incision inside the eyelid. It is usually combined with either transposing lower eyelid fat into the upper cheek or utilizing fat grafting techniques to fill in the upper cheek orbital groove. The procedure has less risk of eyelid malposition or scarring then techniques which incise the skin.
