What is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure to rejuvenate and lift the skin around your eyes. Depending on your unique condition, it can be performed on the upper eyelid, the lower eyelid, or both. Eyelid surgery can correct the following issues:

  • Tired-looking eyes
  • Drooping or sagging eyelids
  • Bags under your eyes
  • Excess skin on your upper eyelid that obscures your vision
  • Excess skin on your lower eyelid

Our eyelid surgery in Austin is one of the most popular and practical surgeries for restoring a refreshed appearance around the eyes.

Am I a candidate for a blepharoplasty?

The ideal candidates for blepharoplasty in Austin are women and men with saggy, droopy eyelids or heavy under-eye bags. As with any medical procedure, determining the safety of the surgery requires an in-person consultation and review of your medical history.

During your personal consultation with Dr. Antunes, he will help you discover the most effective ways to achieve your cosmetic goals. Some patients opt for a brow lift with an eyelid lift or an eyelid lift with a custom facelift in Austin.

What to expect with eyelid surgery

Our eyelid surgery in Austin is an outpatient procedure that we perform at our state-of-the-art private surgery center. Most patients undergo this surgery with a local anesthetic, though we can use a general anesthetic upon request. While your eyelid surgery will be 100 percent customized and tailored to you, your procedure will follow these basic steps:

  • Upper Eyelid Surgery: Once the area is numbed and prepared, we will make a small incision to remove excess skin, tissue, and fat, and may tighten loosened muscles. The incision will then be closed and protected for healing.
  • Lower Eyelid Surgery: Lower eyelid surgery typically involves removing fat and tissue, and the incision may be placed within the eyelid or along the lower lash line. Your procedure may also include securing your tissue to the structure underneath to restore a more youthful, lifted, and healthy appearance to sagging lower lids.

what is the recovery like after eyelid surgery?

Following your eyelid surgery, you can return home to rest and recover. The downtime after eyelid surgery is short, and most people can return to work and social activities within a week.

You can expect your eyelids to be swollen and bruised during the initial healing phase, but these issues fade rapidly over seven to ten days.

Before leaving our clinic, Dr. Antunes will provide you detailed aftercare instructions and what to expect during recovery. For minor blepharoplasty in Austin, the recovery can be as short as a few days.

when you will see your blepharoplasty results

You can expect to see the results appear within the first week after surgery. As the swelling and bruising fade away your eyelids will settle, improving your look and self-confidence. The results are long-lasting – one of the most effective anti-aging surgeries available.
