Will i be left with noticable scarring after lower eyelid blepharoplasty? Do these scars heal well? How long is healing?

In brief: Blepharoplasty scar

Anytime the skin is incised, there will be a scar. If the incision is placed well, it will be hidden in the crease.

In brief: Barely visible

One of the nice features about eyelid surgery or a blepharoplasty is that the scars can be placed either inside the lid or in a crease beneath the lashes.
These scars when healed are barely visible. Additionally, by keeping the lower lid scar short and not extending it beyond the orbital rim the final result blends seamlessly with the normal lid crease. www.artofplasticsurgery.com.

In brief: Practically invisibl

The incision line in lower lid blepharoplasty is usually done in a natural lid fold which makes it practically invisible after healing.
The area is well vascularized so more than minimal scarring is rare. Healing takes place within three weeks to the point of almost invisibility.
