Transconjunctival Eyelid Surgery
In the transconjunctival blepharoplasty, the incision is low enough in the depths of the inferior fornix that the sutures are away from the cornea and do not scratch the eyeball. You may not be able to wear contact lenses for several weeks.
For more details, see two or more board certified and experienced plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.
Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty Technique
The trans-conjunctival blepharoplasty is usually combined with an external skin pinch, to remove the redundant skin, once the fat pads are removed and deflated.
Lower lid Blepharoplasty may be performed with a combination of local anesthesia as well as light IV sedation anesthesia. General anesthesia is not necessary, although patient preference should always be taken into consideration.
Hope this at least provides useful information. Good luck and best wishes. Dr. Shah
It is inside the eyelid
TC blepharoplasty incision.
Many patients benefit with a removal of excess lower eyelid skin at the time of transconjunctival blepharoplasty. This leaves a scar beneath the eyelashes which blends in very well, almost to the point of being invisible.
What is transconjunctival lower eyelid surgery?
The incision is around 0.5cm away from the edge of the eyelid and the small scars are usually left to heal on their own without the need for stitches.
If you are a contact lens wearer, I would suggest changing to glasses for around a month after surgery, and keeping your eyes well-lubricated.
I hope this helps!
