Is this a common result of lower bleph? How can I get rid of it?

Question:

I had a lower bleph 7 months ago. I am happy with the results (no more wrinkly bags under my eyes) except for the veins that are now visible under my right eye. I was never able to see these veins before the surgery. Is this a common result of lower bleph? How can I get rid of it?

Answer:

Sometimes, small subcutaneous veins can become visible beneath the skin after lower blepharoplasty. In my experience this occurs in a small subset of patients. These veins can be treated by making a small incision in the skin and cauterizing the vein. If necessary, I will perform this minor procedure in an office setting under local anesthesia.
