For eye lift procedures that focus on recontouring a patient’s lower eyelid(s), two types of incisions can be used. These are the transconjunctival method and the transcutaneous method. What are the benefits of a transconjunctival eye lift?

The transconjunctival eye lift works best for those patients dealing specifically with excess eyelid fat. Drooping skin cannot be addressed with this method, so it’s better for patients who have very elastic skin.

During the transconjunctival lower lid eye lift procedure, an incision is created in the skin of the inner lower eyelid. Fatty deposits are removed or repositioned, leaving a more even lower eyelid area. The transconjunctival approach allows for more accuracy when repositioning fat, is less invasive, and does not create any marks on the visible part of the lower eyelid.
