Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) in Houston, TX
Droopiness and puffiness in the upper and lower eyelids can give the eyes an aged and fatigued appearance, and even obscure vision for some. By removing excess skin and fat in these areas, eyelid surgery can help the eyes look more alert, refreshed, and youthful. Dr. German Newall, a board-certified plastic surgeon, offers blepharoplasty surgery to patients in Houston and the surrounding areas of Post Oak, Sugar Land, and Katy.
What is Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that aims to repair or reconstruct the upper or lower eyelids. This procedure can help to reduce:
- Puffiness around the eyes
- Hooded eyes
- Heavy eye bags
- Dark circles under eyes
- Excess or loose skin on upper eyelids
What is Eyelid Rejuvenation?
If you are suffering with eyelids that are showing signs of aging but feel that surgery is not right for you, then consider eyelid rejuvenation. If you have mild eyelid laxity, we may be able to treat your concerns with laser tightening treatments. Laser eyelid rejuvenation is a wonderful option for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles by increasing collagen and elasticity in your upper and lower eyelids.
Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
Both men and women can seek blepharoplasty surgery to rejuvenate the eyes and gain a more youthful appearance. Typically, patients who are 35 or older seek out this procedure to reduce signs of aging. A prime candidate for eyelid surgery should have healthy skin around the eyes and no known eye-related medical issues. It is important to be in overall good medical health before undergoing surgery. Discuss your medical history with Dr. Newall during your consultation and make sure to disclose any medications that you are taking.
How is Blepharoplasty Performed?
Droopy lids are corrected through an incision made in the upper lid crease, while lower lid bags are improved through an incision made just below the lower lash line. Any scars will be concealed in the creases. Eyelid surgery can be done under general or “twilight” anesthesia.
