Blepharoplasty (Baggy Eye Lid Surgery)

Baggy eyelids appear worse when you look straight up or squint slightly with your mouth open. Your bags look worse when you are talking and looking around. In other words your bags look worse when you can’t see them. The people you are talking to, however, can see them. The bags of the lower eyelids are clearly visible in the before picture and are completely gone in the after picture. What you do not see is any surgical scars, that’s because Dr. Tinsley performs the procedure from inside the eyelid, eliminating any possible scars. This is called the transconjunctival approach used exclusively by Dr. Tinsley. The intraoperative photo below shows the procedure being done, the right eyelid has been completed and the fat of the left eyelid is the yellow tissue. The eye (eyeball) is protected and not involved in any way. The procedure takes less than an hour and you go home the same day.
