Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty is designed to remove the "bags" in the lower eyelid region. Dr. Vrcek offers transconjunctival "incisionless" lower eyelid blepharoplasty in which no skin incisions are required. Rather, the "bags" are accessed via the mucous membrane on the inside of the eyelid. Dr. Vrcek also offers Transposition Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty--the most modern technique that achieves ideal results in many cases.
In cases where excess skin is to be treated, this skin can either be carefully removed or treated with laser resurfacing or chemical peel.
Below are several patients of Dr. Vrcek who underwent lower eyelid blepharoplasty.
This patient was unhappy about the way her upper and lower eyelids made her appear tired and somewhat unhappy. She underwent upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty with chemical peel and is very happy with the results.
This patient is a 40-50 year old woman who felt that her eyelids made her look "tired" and older than her actual age. It was very important to her to not have the shape of her eye changed--she wanted to look like herself, just younger and more refreshed. She underwent upper and lower eyelid blepharoplasty with resurfacing. This after photo is taken at just 6 weeks after surgery.
This patient is a 40-50 year old Hispanic male who wanted to minimize his lower eyelid "bags". He felt the "bags" made him look older than his actual age.
The patient underwent trans-conjunctival transposition lower eyelid blepharoplasty. This minimally-invasive and advanced technique can be performed without a skin incision. This after photograph was taken at 1 month.
In addition to insurance-covered upper eyelid surgery, this patient requested lower eyelid rejuvenation to improve the wrinkles in the lower eyelids. A blepharoplasty combined with skin resurfacing was used to achieve this result. The after photograph was taken at 1 month.
It was very important to this patient to not look like he had surgery. His exact words were "Doc, Don't let me look like Burt Reynolds." The patient desired to look natural and age-appropriate, just more "rested." He was very pleased with the final result.
This patient was tired of the bags under her eyes as well as the crepey skin changes. She underwent upper and lower blepharoplasty with chemical peel and was very pleased with the natural results.

Also known as an eye lift, eyelid lift, eye plastic surgery or surgery to remove lower eyelid bags, lower eyelid blepharoplasty is a very effective way to improve the appearance of the area around the eyes. Dr. Vrcek offers a customized approach that focuses on each patient’s unique anatomy and goals to achieve beautiful, natural outcomes.
In most cases, the eyelid “bags” can be removed using a hidden incision inside the eyelid near the eyeball. This avoids any skin incision and allows for more rapid recovery. Dr. Vrcek is pleased to offer transposition lower blepharoplasty (also known as fat repositioning). This advanced technique uses the eyelid fat that is forming the “bag” to fill areas of relative depression or hollowness in the eyelid-cheek junction. In fact, Dr. Vrcek has presented his techniques for lower blepharoplasty at national and international meetings including the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
