Can I undergo lower eyelid blepharoplasty if I am prone to poor scarring and keloids?


A lower eyelid blepharoplasty procedure can remove excess fat from the lower eyelid and form the skin in order to tighten wrinkles along the periorbital area.  The patients who are prone to scarring or have had keloid scars can benefit from this cosmetic surgery eyelid procedure.  The risk of scarring on the eyelid is minimal as the thickness of dermis within the lower eyelid is thinner than most parts of the body, thus reducing the chance of hypertrophic or keloid scarring.  In any case, Dr. Karamanoukian will evaluate your eyelid and determine if you are a candidate for blepharoplasty first, and then advise you specific options to minimize postoperative scar formation immediately after your blepharoplasty.  Most patients will benefit from a natural looking blepharoplasty that tightens the skin and removes excess fat without changing the overall shape of the eyelid.  Dr. Karamanoukian can provide you with specific options for lower eyelid blepharoplasty depending on the severity of the fat bags and the tone of the skin.  In addition, some patients will benefit from laser tightening of the skin of the lower eyelid if there is minimal fat bags along the lower eyelids.  If you have questions about blepharoplasty procedures and wish to undergo a consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian regarding eyelid surgery, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office and speak to one of our patient care coordinators regarding blepharoplasty procedures.
