Lower blepharoplasty surgery
As you mentioned, there can be many choices in choosing a surgeon to perform blepharoplasty. In general, there would be three types of specialties that would perform such a procedure. These would be, facial plastic surgeons, plastic surgeons, and oculoplastic surgeons. All can be potentially well experienced in performing surgery on the eyelids. It's really just a matter of finding a board certified physician that you like. Referrals from friends or acquaintances are a good place to start or you could ask for a referral from your general physician.
