Transconjunctival lower lid blepharoplasty with and without fat repositioning

Clin Plast Surg. 2015 Jan;42(1):51-6. doi: 10.1016/j.cps.2014.09.001.


The transconjunctival approach to lower lid blepharoplasty provides access for both fat resection and transposition to soften tear trough deformities and correct infraorbital fat herniation. Overall, there is a paradigm shift that has focused more on enhancing lower lid-cheek shape and contour and preserving orbital volume
