What Is CO2 Blepharoplasty?

CO2 laser blepharoplasty is a revolutionary procedure that combines traditional eyelid rejuvenation techniques with the precision and healing benefits of CO2 laser energy. This method allows for meticulous removal or repositioning of skin, muscle, and fat around the eyes, while the laser promotes collagen production and minimizes your recovery time.  By targeting these delicate areas with such accuracy, CO2 blepharoplasty offers a more refined and natural-looking outcome.

Transcutaneous Blepharoplasty with CO2 Laser

Transcutaneous blepharoplasty with CO2 laser is performed by making a small incision along the natural crease of the eyelid, through which excess skin, muscle, and fat will be removed or repositioned. The use of the CO2 laser helps to significantly reduce bleeding and swelling thanks to its cauterizing capabilities.

This method is particularly well-suited for patients with a considerable amount of excess skin. The surgeons at Elite Plastic Surgery excel in this technique, ensuring that the incisions are discreetly placed for minimal post-procedural scarring. The result is a brighter, more alert look that will properly reflect your inner vitality.

Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty with CO2 Laser

For those primarily concerned with bags under the eyes without significant skin redundancy, transconjunctival blepharoplasty with CO2 laser offers a less invasive alternative. This technique involves making an incision inside the lower eyelid, leaving no visible scar. Your surgeon can then precisely remove or reposition fat deposits, reducing under-eye puffiness. This approach benefits from reduced recovery times and virtually no risk of altering the eyelid's natural shape.
