Why Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty Is the Best Lower Eyelid Surgery

There is a new style of lower eyelid surgery that has become popular among many who need it known as transconjunctival blepharoplasty. More and more of the best plastic surgeons in Miami are turning to this new method, because it is more direct and less invasive. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is also known to be a safer way to take care of orbital fat. While any Miami plastic surgeon will know why this is a preferred message, many patients are curious about why transconjunctival blepharoplasty is a better choice than other lower eyelid surgery methods. There are quite a few reasons this is becoming more and more popular; when it comes to eyelid surgery it’s best to always get all the facts.

One of the main reasons transconjunctival blepharoplasty is the better choice is that with this method there is almost a zero percent chance of a scar-related lower eyelid retraction. This is because the approach doesn’t disrupt the delicate middle layer of the eyelid. The second benefit is increased precision; this method doesn’t involve taking apart the lower eyelid from the front, so the Miami cosmetic surgeon can more effectively gauge fat removal ensuring the desired results. With transconjunctival blepharoplasty the patient will recover quicker, because the approach less invasive.

After receiving transconjunctival blepharoplasty, patients tend to like the results better than the two other styles of lower eyelid surgery. This is because they can avoid the most feared complication, which is eyelid retraction. Also, the procedure itself just provides a more natural look. Lastly, the scar is considerably smaller; some methods leave a scar extending across most of the lower eyelids. With transconjunctival blepharoplasty the scar will be on the inside surface of the lower eyelid where it is not visible to others. No need to worry, you will not feel the scarring in any way. When it comes to lower eyelid surgery, transconjunctival blepharoplasty is the best choice for both comfort and results.
