About Eyelid Surgery

A Youthful Appearance

Eyelid surgery in Southlake can be performed by itself when a full facelift is not yet necessary, or it can be combined with facelift surgery. An upper blepharoplasty gets rid of the excess skin of the upper lids, and a lower blepharoplasty can remove the bags and puffy appearance under your eyes.

Either upper or lower eyelid surgery in Southlake Texas, or both, procedures can help to make your face refreshed by “opening up” the appearance of the eyes. Patients can experience a refreshed, awake appearance, free from droopy eyelids or under eye bags. To undergo an eyelid surgery in Southlake, a candidate should be in good overall health, a non-smoker and have realistic expectations for improvement and not perfection.

“It is so important for a plastic surgeon to be in-sync with their patients- their goals, their aesthetics, their fears and concerns. The bond I develop with my patients over the course of their pre- and post-surgical care and the trust they place in me to envision what they desire and understand what they need is something I cherish tremendously. It’s the best part of my job”
