Conditions on the lower eyelid can be corrected with a cut just below the lower lash line. With this incision, excess skin on the lower eyelid is removed. Again, excess oil can be repositioned or removed.
A transconjunctival incision made on the inside of the lower eyelid is an alternative technique to correct lower eyelid conditions and redistribute or remove excess fat. With this technique, the skin is not removed.
