An upper eyelid blepharoplasty incision is placed along a natural crease which means over time it becomes less noticeable. Scars undergo a maturation process that lasts several months. Before a scar fades away it will have a red appearance for up to about 6 months especially on the sides of the eyelids.
For lower eyelid “eye bags” with no significant excess skin, a trans conjunctival incision is used which means no skin incision is made and no scars are visible. This allows the removal of fat contributing to the bulge. When combined with excision of excess skin, an incision is carried out below the lashes of the lower lid. The expected progression and visibility of the scar is similar to the upper eyelid.
