About Eyelid Surgery
The eyes are an attractive aspect of the face that deserve to be seen; however, an abundance of skin on top or around the eyes can render an unflattering look. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Schwartz performs blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery) to lift and tighten the upper or lower eyelid, creating a look that appears softer and rejuvenated. Countless men and women have eyelid surgery at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX to correct sagging skin, which helps with both function and appearance. Whether upper or lower, a blepharoplasty creates a younger appearance and can produce subtle yet striking improvements.
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that is popular among both men and women. During the initial consult, treatment alternatives will be suggested by Dr. Schwartz based on your conditions that need to be addressed. Ideal candidates wish to correct excess sagging skin and folds on the upper eyelid or puffy skin below the eye. These conditions can cause functional problems that can hinder everyday life. For a rejuvenated facial appearance, eyelid surgery may be the right treatment for you. If you have excess hanging skin on the upper eyelid or bags under the eyes, blepharoplasty can repair this to give you an improved appearance.

During blepharoplasty, depending on the nature of the surgery, general anesthesia or IV sedation will be used. Eyelid surgery may be done on the upper eyelid alone, on the bottom portion, or both treatments at the same time.
Upper blepharoplasty assists in reducing the loose skin that droops over the eye and attains a more flattering look. An incision is usually made along the natural crease to remove skin and tissue.
Lower bleph is performed to reduce bulging, bloated skin underneath the lower eyelid. The incision is made below the lash line to remove fat, and the skin is gently lifted to create a flatter, smoother look. In some cases, a nonsurgical laser treatment can be performed to assist with discoloration, while injectable fillers can be used for additional volume and smoothness if needed.
What to Expect
Eyelid surgery can last up to two hours depending on whether one or both eyes are treated. After surgery, you should allow yourself several days to rest. Cold compressions can help reduce swelling, bruising, and discomfort. The results from eyelid surgery can last years, but keep in mind the aging process does not stop. To maintain your surgical outcomes, nonsurgical treatments at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery (such as injections, fillers, and laser) can be performed to create a lasting, glowing appearance.
