Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty

Lower eyelid blepharoplasty is performed to address the lower eyelid bags or hollows.  In 2019, the treatment for lower eyelid bags and hollows is different than it was a decade ago.  There are many old surgeons that simply remove lower eyelid fat in everyone causing that hollow, sculpted, surgerized, look that was commonly seen in the early 90s.    Over the last decade, the advances in hyaluronic acid fillers have helped defer or avoid surgery in many people. There are, however, many people who still need lower eyelid surgery to address those bags under the eyelid.

As one of San Diego’s most experienced oculoplastic surgeons, Dr. Iyengar is regularly asked to fix complications from other surgeons who often do not perform eyelid surgery regularly. These are a few of those challenging cases.

We are the referral primary practice for med-spa and aesthetic practices in the area for lower eyelid blepharoplasty.  Our practice regularly sees patients who have undergone lower eyelid blepharoplasty by a general plastic surgeon and now need repeat surgery to fix a suboptimal result. As a fellowship-trained oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Iyengar brings the highest level of expertise to the periocular area.  Also, an expert in lower eyelid rejuvenation and with a decade of experience in lower eyelid fillers, Dr. Iyengar is able to distinguish who might benefit from fillers and who might benefit from surgery.
