The eyes are a vital part of your facial appearance. Changes to the eyelids can have a dramatic impact on how old you appear and may even make you look tired or sad. The thin skin and delicate tissue around the eyes can sag over time. Droopy upper eyelids or sagging bags under the eyes are not desirable or attractive. At Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center, we offer both upper and lower blepharoplasty to rejuvenate the eyes at our facility in Irving, TX.
Lower Eyelid Cosmetic Surgery
Lower blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, is a procedure that involves rejuvenating the lower eyelids. While blepharoplasty is a relatively quick surgery, it can have dramatic results. The procedure involves skin removal as well as fat repositioning to create a more youthful, alert appearance. Fat grafting is utilized in patients who have a hollowed-out area under the eye, while others may need fat removed to rid under eye bags. The incision can be made inside the eyelid to hide the scar for a discreet and natural outcome.
Upper Eyelid Surgery
Excess skin on the upper eyelid is a common problem. While more common with age, excess eyelid skin can occur due to genetics. Droopy upper eyelids can make the person look tired or lazy. Upper blepharoplasty can remove the extra skin and eyelid tightening can be performed if indicated and may refresh the eye appearance. If skin sagging is severe, blepharoplasty can improve vision as well. Eyelid ptosis, where the eyelid itself is dropping over the pupil, will be evaluated for and treated if needed.
