In this video, Dr Dan Kennedy discussed what the options are for lower lid surgery.

“Lower lid blepharoplasty is a good procedure but it is a more serious procedure than an upper lid Blepharoplasty.

When I am talking with patients about a lower lid Blepharoplasty, I emphasis the risk of dryness, of slower recovery, of chemosis, irritation of the eye because the recovery is slower and people do have a greater chance of having a complication.

I think patients need to take that decision very carefully and be fully appraised of the risks involved.

It is a very effective operation but it can also cause irritation and a slow recovery”
