Excess skin and fat bags are removed. When there is no skin excess in the lower eyelid a transconjuntival approach is possible with not visible scar at all. The procedure takes about 45 minutes, after you will have a bandage over the eyes for 2 hours, after a cold pack is applied to reduce swelling.
