Due to factors that may include heredity, age, or stress, facial appearances may begin to look drained and aged. Many times, the upper and lower eyelids are the first to show these signs of aging. A main facial feature, the appearance of eyes and surrounding soft tissue can make patients look older than they are.

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is an effective procedure for the removal of sagging, excess skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Christopher K. Livingston, M.D., F.A.C.S., P.A. at Livingston Plastic Surgery is a cosmetic facial surgery expert with extensive experience in treating the delicate skin around the eyes.

At Livingston Plastic Surgery, many of our patients often undergo one or more complementary facial procedures with blepharoplasty.

EYELID SURGERY OVERVIEW

A nearly scar-free procedure, this procedure, otherwise known as “blepharoplasty,” can treat a number of imperfections, such as:

  • Sagging or loose skin present on the upper and lower eyelids
  • Bags beneath the eyes
  • Wrinkles around and in the lower eyelids
  • Poor lower eyelid position
  • Excess fatty deposits on the upper eyelids

After accessing and analyzing each individual, Dr. Livingston will determine whether upper or lower eyelids (or both) require attention help you achieve a refreshed look. Treatment can help you attain a younger appearance, and in some cases, provide better vision, free from drooping upper eyelids

PROCEDURAL STEPS OF EYELID SURGERY

Patients are first provided with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia to create a comfortable treatment experience.  Upper eyelid surgery may be performed by first creating an incision on the upper eyelid creases through which fat may be removed, tissue and muscles will be tightened, and excess skin will be removed.

Surgery for the undereye tissue and the lower eyelid may also be performed by creating a small incision below the lower eyelashes to remove the excess skin and fat that cause bags. If hollow spots are present under the eyes, Dr. Livingston can utilize the same lower eyelid incision to transfer fat.

Afterward, the incisions will be closed with removable or dissolvable sutures. For additional treatment to correct dark circles beneath the eyes, a chemical peel or laser resurfacing may also be necessary.

THE RESULTS OF EYELID SURGERY

Although blepharoplasty is a quick and safe procedure, bruising and swelling will still be present after surgery for 5-7 days. During this time, a cold compress and lubricating ointments should be applied to the eyelids.

Final results from the procedure could take 6-12 months, but patients will notice a more rejuvenated appearance in just a few weeks following their procedure. Eyelid surgery provides long-lasting results and leaves patients looking years younger.

Additional Procedures:

The following may be performed in addition to blepharoplasty with our Houston plastic surgeon:

Brow lift surgery reduces the appearance of creases along the forehead, between the eyes, and above the nasal bridge.
