The upper eyelid incision is placed in a natural contour in the skin, hidden from view. The lower eyelid incisions may be placed externally under the eyelashes (subciliary approach) or internally in the pink area of the eyelid (transconjunctival approach).
The incision location and length vary largely based on the age of the patient and how much lift he or she needs. Dr. Chaboki will minimize the incision but maximize the lift, without creating an unnatural appearance. The eyelid surgery incision, regardless of exact location, fades from view over time.
