Eyelid surgery rejuvenates the upper part of the face, making you look fresher and more relaxed, and feeling more self confident. Blepharoplasty in Houston, TX is often combined with a browlift to lifting sagging eyebrows or a facelift to improve the lower part of the face.
The surgery removes excess skin and bulging fat from the eyelids through incisions in natural lines extending into the crows feet (smile lines) at the outer edge of the eye. The scars fade with time, and are usually not noticeable.
Eyelid surgery is usually performed under general anaesthetic as a day surgery procedure. There is some temporary bruising and swelling, lasting about two weeks or less. Most patients return to work in 7-14 days.
