Eyelid Surgery (Upper/Lower Eyelid) – Blepharoplasty – Plano, TX*

Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, improves the changes made by aging surrounding the upper and/or lower eyelids and gives a rejuvenated appearance to the eye area for a more rested, and alert look. Dr. Vu Ho, a Plano, TX double board-certified plastic surgeon, performs the surgery for aging patients with excessive skin and fat in the eye area. The surgery can also help diminish lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

Upper lid surgery addresses the loose skin hanging above the eyes. Dr. Ho makes an incision that follows the natural crease of the upper eyelid to remove excess skin and fatty tissue. Lower lid surgery is a similar process, with the incision following just under the lower lash line, or hidden behind the eyelid. Fat pockets are removed or repositioned to diminish the looks of “bags” under the eyes. In addition, excessive skin below is removed or tightened with laser treatment.

Ideal Candidates

The best candidates for eyelid surgery:

  • Have eyelid issues that cause them to look older
  • Have vision problems caused by droopy eyelids
  • Have droopy, down-turned eyelids as a result of aging or genetics
  • Have bags under the eyes
  • Desire a more refreshed, rejuvenated appearance
  • Desire a natural look

What to Expect

Upper Eyelid Surgery

For upper eyelid surgery, the plastic surgeon will make the incision within the natural fold of the eyelid. The incision will be extended outward as much as possible in order to address the extraneous skin folds located on the outside of the upper lid. After the incision is carefully made, the surgeon will remove the excessive fat and skin. Afterwards, the incision will be stitched close with absorbable sutures, which do not require removal by the surgeon. 

Lower Eyelid Surgery

For lower eyelid surgery, the incision will be placed along the bottom of the lash line to allow the plastic surgeon access to remove the extraneous fat and tissue. A special technique used for patients with puffy lower lids but good skin tone is called transconjunctival blepharoplasty. Patients with dark under eye circles caused by a lack of fat in the area could benefit from injectables or fat fillers to add volume to the area.

Upper and Lower Combined 

With some patients, both the lower and upper eyelids need to be addressed to correct all issues effectively. When both are combined, surgery can last around 2 hours.
