Couple of special things about lower lid blepharoplasty or lower lid lifts. There's a couple of other things that can be done. Typically, it's an incision just under the lash line. And then it curves out at the side. We take a little bit of skin, sometimes a little bit of muscle if the muscle is thickened. In guys in the summer with lot of squinting, it can get thick. And sometimes a little bit of fat if that lower lid has some bulging fat. Try and smooth it out and make it nice. In some people, we'll go through the inner part of the eye and just take out a little bit of fat with or without a little bit of lazering to the lower lid to tighten up some wrinkled skin. So it's without a scar in the outside. And it’s not painful. It heals up very quickly. So it's a nice way to do it. Finally, there is the occasional patient we actually put a small silicon implant along the lower orbital rim. And we use a Flowers implant made by Dr. Flowers or invented by Dr. Flowers in Hawaii. It's very nice for someone who says, ''I’ve had bags under my eyes since I was thirteen.'' And typically this is not an aging problem. This is because the orbital rim is a little too shallow, a little bit too deep. The fat of the lower eyelid hangs out. It's been that way the whole life. And that's a very nice operation for that problem.
