What are the credentials of my surgeon?

She completed her internship and residency in Head & 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 re-sculpts the 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, no stitches are required, 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 back 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, which, if any, can be covered with concealer. There is minimal to no pain associated with this procedure.
