To remove excess skin, fat, and muscle tissue from the eyelids, a plastic surgeon must first create a very small incision. One possible incision site for lower-eyelid blepharoplasty surgery is on the inside of the lid.

Called the transconjunctival incision, this site is primarily used when there is no need to remove excess skin, only fatty tissue. This blepharoplasty incision technique is most-commonly used for younger patients, since their skin is still rich in collagen and thus does not droop very much.
