New Treatment For Dark Circles Under The Eyes-lm3886

Medicine Dear Doctor Seckel, I live in Boston and am scheduled for an eyelid tuck called a blepharoplasty. I read on aol that a new procedure called the transconjunctival blepharoplasty is better. I have also read about arcus marginalis release. Can you tell me the difference. I am confused and dont want to have the wrong operation. My problem is puffy bags and dark circles under my eyes. I am 38 years old and have good skin. I also hear this operation can be done with a laser, have you heard of a laser blepharoplasty. Everyone tells me I look tired. Please help. Thank you, Rose, Boston, MA. Dear Rose, Congratulations on being well read and up to date on the latest plastic surgery techniques! The transconjunctival blepharoplasty with arcus marginalis release is the best new method for removing eyelid bags and dark circles under the eyes. I do this procedure with a laser and feel it is the safest and best way to do the operation. There are many advantages to the new techniques. First, with traditional scalpel blepharoplasty an incision is made on the outside of the lower eyelid which cuts through the supporting muscles of the lower eyelid and skin and muscle are removed. The result is that after healing the lower eyelid can turn down and have a sad eyed look called hound dog eyes or technically an ectropion. If you look at many people who have had the standard blepharoplasty you will see this. The transconjunctival blepharoplasty avoids this complication by placing the incision on the inside of the eyelid thus the muscles are not cut, eyelid support stays in tact and there is no visible incision on the outside of the eyelid. The arcus marginalis release is the only method for removing dark circles under the eyes that works. Usually during this maneuver fat or a tear trough implant is placed beneath the dark circle to plump up the skin and remove the shadow. The benefits of using the laser for blepharoplasty is that the laser seals the blood vessels as it cuts thus there is much less bleeding during blepharoplasty. Since bleeding is the most dreaded complication of blepharoplasty, I feel the laser is a much safer technique.
