Dr. Bloom’s approach to lower eyelid surgery

Dr. Bloom ensures that his patients’ results from lower eyelid surgery will look completely natural by making the incision through the lower eyelid or supporting it with a muscle suspension. Doing this prevents a pulled or unnatural result.

His physical evaluation of you is also very important, as this will allow him to determine your skin, eyelid and muscle laxity; skin excess; fat pseudoherniation, and periorbital or infra-orbital hollowing or volume loss.

What happens during lower eyelid surgery?

Lower eyelid surgery is performed with the patient under local anesthesia, perhaps with sedation. Dr. Bloom’s most common approach is a transconjunctival lower eyelid surgery where he will go through the lower eyelid to conservatively remove the eyelid fat, take a skin pinch to tighten up the lower eyelid skin, and finally perform periorbital fat grafting to fill in any hollowing or volume loss. This is a minimally invasive approach that is very natural-looking and produces remarkable results. The procedure takes about one hour to complete. Dr. Bloom frequently performs structural fat grafting in the periorbital and mid-face/cheek areas along with lower eyelid surgery. This helps to fill in some of the periorbital volume loss and hollowing that is associated with aging, and effectively fills in the lid-cheek junction, thereby providing natural volume to the mid-face and periorbital areas.


The recovery time for lower eyelid surgery will depend on if periorbital fat grafting was performed along with the procedure. Swelling and bruising can last for around two weeks, but the majority of patients are ready to go out into public with some makeup at this time.
