If I need to have skin and fat removed from the eyelid, can it be done together?
If a patient has loose falls of skin and fat prolapses this can be done together. Either again by undertaking a oculoplastic surgery by an incision on inside of the eyelids, the transconjunctival blepharoplasty. At the end of the procedure a small amount of the skin can be removed and this refers to the pinch skin blepharoplasty. The patients who have more skin excess or laxity, the incision is made at the beginning of the oculoplastic operation below the eyelashes, trying to camouflage that skin incision as a crease.
