The incision on the lower eyelid is made not in the skin, but rather in the pink tissue that sits against the eyeball.  You would have to pull your lower eyelid way down in order to see the incision location.

For those of you who don't mind seeing explicit intra-operative pictures, the lower eyelid surgery tutorial shows exactly how the fat is removed from the lower lids.

Questioner: My plastic surgeon doesn't use drain tubes after Neck Lift/Facelift. Is that okay?
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Drains after facelift

This is a question that cosmetic surgeons discuss regularly and you will find many different opinions. Most feel drains do help minimize seromas (fluid collections under the skin) and improve the recovery process. Some surgeons use fibrin sealants which also work well. Others just depend on dressings and pressure.  In general, however, if your surgeon is experienced with facelifts and getting excellent results, then whether or not they use drains should not be an issue.

Best of luck with your procedure-
