1. Done under local anesthesia, which brings the cost down but also means that you hear everything: the skin cutting, the cauterizing. It takes about one hour per eye.
2. My surgeon also relocated fat pads; it makes sense to do this at the same time, and is a straight-forward cut and tuck. But, this means that instead of just a skin pinch, you have your lower lid skin stretched and trauma done to the substructure which means bleeding which means bruising.
3. So, while I had thought a skin pinch would be simple and minimal and short down-time, the best choice (if you can benefit from fat repositioning) is to do that at the same time. Probably if you're over 35, it's a good choice.
4. Two weeks recovery time, definitely. Two black eyes.

5 months post lower bleph

Scarring: completely unnoticeable
Under-eye laxity: improved, and the under-eye area is smooth. There is still wrinkling when I smile, but no where near as much.
Pain: none, really
Numbness: slight

Overall, I am very happy with the results.
