GMommy lower eyelid blepharoplasty may be one of the most challenging rejuvenating surgeries for aging grandmas. This is because of the phenomenon plastic surgeons refer to as lid laxity, which describes looseness in the lower eyelid margin. Lid laxity describes lower eyelid margin looseness that results from prolonged aging and the effects of gravity. When gravity pulls on the lid long enough, it will actually bow down and this is called an ectropion. In fact, an ectropion is a side effect of attempting to perform lower eyelid blepharoplasty in GMommies. This is why experienced plastic surgeons should counsel GMommies desiring lower eyelid blepharoplasty. It is important to discuss a lid margin tightening procedure in addition to the elimination of actual skin redundancy.
GMommy Lid Margin Tightening
Your plastic surgeon achieves GMommy lid margin tightening by literally trimming the lid margin near the outer corner of the eyelid. This is called a canthoplasty procedure.

Your plastic surgeon must perform the repair of the lid margin in a layered fashion so it will retain its integrity.
In summary, GMommy’s lower eyelid blepharoplasty procedures are unique. Your plastic surgeon must perform the surgery to eliminate skin redundancy, as well as tighten the lid prophylactically to prevent an ectropion. The combination of these two maneuvers makes GMommy lower eyelid blepharoplasty unique.
