The eyes can say so much about you and are one of the first features that people notice. When the lower eyelids are puffy, sagging or drooping, it can make you look older, tired and sad. A lower eyelid lift, or lower blepharoplasty, can have a dramatic impact on the appearance of your eyes and face. Dr. Lesley Rabach is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon at LM Medical NYC who offers rejuvenating lower blepharoplasty at our clinic in Manhattan.

Benefits of Lower Eyelid Lift Surgery

When the skin and tissue on the lower eyelids stretch and sag, it can result in circles and bags under the eyes. The bottom lid can also droop, changing the shape of the eyes. A lower blepharoplasty removes the extra skin and fat, tightening and firming the area under the eye. The benefit is diminished eye bags, circles and wrinkles under the eye for a more youthful and energetic appearance.

Lower Blepharoplasty FAQs

What are the credentials of my surgeon?

Dr. Lesley is a world-renowned, double board certified facial plastic surgeon, and one of the few elite surgeons who specialize specifically in operating on the face and neck. She completed her internship and residency in head and neck surgery at Yale New Haven Hospital followed by an ABFPRS accredited fellowship in facial plastic surgery. With the most advanced surgical technique and an artistically trained eye, Dr. Lesley sculpts the upper or lower eyelid to achieve a natural, youthful look.

What is the difference between the “transconjunctival” approach and the “subcilary” approach in lower eyelid cosmetic surgery?

In a transconjunctival approach, an incision is made inside the eyelid, and not on the external part of the lower eyelid. This is the preferred method and is advantageous because the incision is made inside of the eyelid, without requiring stitches, and the recovery time is much shorter. The disadvantage is that the excess skin cannot be corrected with this approach. Sometimes transconjunctival surgery is combined with laser resurfacing to improve skin texture and remove fine lines and wrinkles.

Are the results of the lower eyelid surgery permanent?

Yes! Unwanted fat bags that are removed do not come back, and it is very uncommon to see patients return for revisions.

What is the recovery time for the “transconjunctival” approach in lower eyelid cosmetic surgery?

There is a variable amount of bruising and swelling. Our optimized pre- and post-operative approach allows for minimized bruising and swelling and a faster recovery.

Blepharoplasty can have a dramatic impact on the appearance of your eyes and face. If your eyes are making you look older and tired, consider the benefits of upper or lower eyelid lift surgery. Contact us at LM Medical NYC in Greenwich Village to schedule a blepharoplasty consultation.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
