Eyelid surgery is a procedure that addresses cosmetic concerns in the eyelids. Eyelid surgery is also referred to as blepharoplasty, an eye lift, or undereye bag surgery. Dr. Ameen Habash provides high-quality eyelid surgery to Southlake patients who want to reduce eyelid sagging, puffiness, and fine wrinkles.
What Is Eyelid Surgery?
People commonly experience saggy, puffy, and wrinkled eyelids as they grow older. These issues become more noticeable over time, creating a constantly sad or tired appearance. In some cases, drooping eyelids can even cause issues with vision. Eyelid surgery is an excellent solution to addressing these issues.
Ideal candidates must have realistic goals when it comes to eyelid surgery. Blepharoplasty surgery is best for patients who want to enhance the aesthetics of their face, especially in the eye area. Candidates with saggy, wrinkled, or puffy eyelids can undergo eyelid surgery. Patients who have vision issues due to their eyelids are also excellent candidates for blepharoplasty.
Your Eyelid Surgery Consultation
During your consultation, Dr. Habash will discuss your goals and the different options available to achieve your ideal results. Dr. Habash will check your medical history, including information regarding any past eyelid procedures. Dr. Habash will examine your eyelids and the surrounding areas to develop the ideal treatment plan.
If eyelid surgery will be your best option, Dr. Habash will provide instructions to prepare you for the surgery. This may include changes in your current medications and supplements. Drinking alcohol and smoking must be stopped prior to the surgery.
The Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Blepharoplasty typically takes around two hours. The eyelid surgery will be customized to achieve the desired results. Anesthesia will be administered before making very tiny incisions in the upper or lower eyelids. Tissues will be removed, tightened, or repositioned as needed. The incisions will be closed after the procedure.
Before & After Patient Photos
What Is Recovery Like?
After the surgery, once the patient is cleared to return home, they must be driven home by a friend or relative. The recovery process may include Dr. Habash removing the sutures within four days. This will not be necessary if dissolvable sutures are used, since they will safely dissolve on their own within a week.
The patient can expect temporary bruising and swelling around the eyes in the first few days after the surgery. Normal activities will be allowed after 10 days. Three weeks must pass before strenuous activities can be resumed.
The Cost of Eyelid Surgery
The cost of eyelid surgery varies depending on the eyelids being treated and the techniques used for the procedure. The overall price will fluctuate depending on the anesthesia administered to the patient and the facilities used during the procedure. Functional eyelid surgery may be covered by your health insurance provider.
