What Is Lower Eye Blepharoplasty?

Lower eye blepharoplasty is the addition or removal of fat in the area under a person's eye. The procedure involves non-visible incisions just below a person's eye lashes, according to MedicineNet.com. Typical goals include the removal of excess skin and the reduction of wrinkles.

Another goal of a lower eye blepharoplasty is simply to improve the overall shape and appearance of the eye. People who experience bags under their eyes commonly seek this procedure, reports the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. People remove fat and tighten the skin under the eye to eliminate sagging or droopiness, and they add fat to eradicate a hollowed appearance, according to MedicineNet.com.
