can I do for this problem?

makes his approach different from other plastic surgeons?
Dr. Byun offers two different methods when it comes to lower eyelid blepharoplasty. The first, the subcilliary approach, is recommended for patients who have excess bulging as well as skin wrinkles along the eye area. Dr. Byun uses an incision along the eyelashes that means the resulting scar is nearly invisible. He then removes fat from up to three pockets under the skin, ensuring that he doesn't remove excess fat which would cause dark circles.
The second approach is the transconjunctival, which is recommended for patients who only have minor bulging, or the beginning stages of lower lid skin ptosis. This approach uses no incisions on the outside of the eye, instead using a laser to cut through the conjunctiva.
much down time is involved?
One week after surgery has ended, Dr. Byun was conduct a post-operative appointment to remove all sutures. Significant swelling and bruising are often present for 24 to 72 hours after surgery has concluded, but the healing process differs from person to person, so Dr. Byun may opt to keep sutures in place until the healing is suitable for their removal. The estimated time for complete recovery is approximately three months, but patients who undergo subcilliary incision can return to work with light duties in about three to four weeks. Patients who undergo transconjuctival incision will have an estimated downtime of about three days.
