Eyelid surgery can be done 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 appearance, free from droopy eyelids or bags underneath.
A candidate should be in good overall health, a non-smoker and have realistic expectations for improvement and not perfection.

A small incision to upper lid will be made for an upper blepharoplasty and a small incision along lower lash line will be made for a lower blepharoplasty. During a blepharoplasty, excess skin and fat are removed thus getting rid of the “hooding” of the upper lids or getting rid of bags under the eyes.
There is very little postoperative pain associated with an eyelid surgery in Southlake Texas, also known as blepharoplasty. However, expect to have minimal swelling and bruising that will last for 5-6 days.
