In brief: Good operation..
Hard to explain in a short answer but this procedure is used to improve the blending of the lower eyelid/cheek junction and fill the hollow (tear trough) that develops below the eyelids with aging and descent of the cheek soft tissues.
Can be thought of as a hybrid between midface lift and bleph alone. Costs vary: about $5, 000 where i am. Healing and bruising time about 10-14 days.

In brief: Eyelid surgery
Depending on the approach, transconjunctical or combined with mid face lift, the bruizing in general subsides in 7 to 10 days.
This procedure can be done under srtict local anesthesia. The cost varies by location and surgeon from $2000 and up. You can reduce bruising time by avoiding blood thining products and medications like aspirin. Also the post operative care can make a big difference.

In brief: Lower eyelids
Dear nastmom, -i prefer fat transfer instead of transposition to sculpt the eyelid and cheek -the healing time is about 2 weeks of swelling and bruising -the cost depends on your location, it usually starts at around four thousand in los angeles best, nima shemirani.

In brief: Good Combination!
If you need a lower eyelid lift and also have hollowing of the tear trough area then a hybrid procedure may be for you.
Loose skin is removed or tightened with a resurfacing laser and the tear trough is filled with existing eyelid fat (transposed) or with fat from another body area (fat transfer). Cost varies across the usa. Healing time is a little longer than an eyelid lift. Bruising varies.
