Lower-eyelid surgery can be performed for two reasons: It can be done to eliminate excess lower-eyelid skin, or it can be performed to reduce the appearance of puffiness and bags under the eyes due to the accumulation of fat in the area.
If the procedure is performed to address excess fat, the incision is made along the inside of the lower eyelid. The reason for this is because only a small incision is required to reposition and remove excess fat in the area. Making it along the inside of the eyelid ensures that no post-surgical marks will be visible.
