Upper Vs. Lower Eyelid Surgery in Dallas

Upper Vs. Lower Eyelid Surgery in Dallas

Eyelid surgery—medically known as blepharoplasty—is a surgical procedure that expertly targets the signs of aging in the eyelids, helping you achieve a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. For some people, only the upper eyelids present a problem, while for others, it is only the lower eyelids.

Our facial plastic surgeons offer cosmetic enhancement for both the upper and lower eyelids. Many of our patients approach us wondering about upper vs. lower eyelid surgery in Dallas. Should you get one or the other – or both? We will provide an overview of these two procedures, the issues they treat, and how they are performed.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper eyelid surgery, also known as upper blepharoplasty, is designed to combat sagging, drooping skin that hangs over the eye and can potentially obscure your vision. Cosmetically, it allows the eyes to look more open and awake, and can make our patients look more youthful.

In the upper eyelid surgery, the incision is performed on the upper lash line and every effort is made to conceal the incision. Through this incision, excess skin and tissue is removed to reduce the sag that occurs when your eyes are open.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Lower eyelid surgery, also known as lower blepharoplasty, is performed in the under-eye area and is designed to reduce puffy, baggy eyes that are often a sign of old age. Our plastic surgeon carefully removes excess skin and fat to tighten the lower eyelid area, and can smoothen out the skin to give a rejuvenated appearance.

For this procedure, the incisions can be made on the inside of the lid, the outside of the lid, or both, depending on the need to remove skin and fat. As with the upper eyelid surgical procedure, one of our primary goals is to conceal the incision – and the scar that will eventually form – so it is not noticeable to others. Dallas patients can learn more about lower eyelid surgery scar concealment during their initial consult.

Can I Get Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery At the Same Time?

Yes, you can! Upper and lower eyelid surgery can be performed simultaneously in Dallas, Plano, or Southlake by one of our well-trained, qualified plastic surgeons. In fact, combining your two surgeries will result in a shorter overall recovery time and less risk of complications compared to obtaining them separately.

Many of our patients choose to receive both at the same time to reduce the signs of aging across the entire area. We can fully prep you on the aftercare process before you commit to getting any procedure.
