Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure in which a more alert and youthful look is achieved through surgical revision of the area around the eyes. With this procedure, triple board-certified Houston facial plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Eisemann can remove excess skin, eliminate wrinkles, and produce a refreshed and rejuvenated look to one of your most noticeable and attractive features.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of the skin around your eyes, please contact the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center or call 713-790-1771 to schedule an eyelid surgery consultation with our triple board-certified facial plastic surgeon. We help patients in Houston and the surrounding areas of Texas.
Good Eyelid Surgery Candidates
Blepharoplasty removes excess skin and fat deposits from both the upper and lower eyelids. It is capable of removing dark circles and puffiness under the eyes along with the tired look created by droopy eyelids. To be a good candidate for eyelid surgery, you should have one or more of these issues detracting from the appearance of your eyes.
In addition to being able to benefit cosmetically from the procedure, ideal eyelid surgery candidates need to be in generally good health and free of serious medical issues such as thyroid disease or hypertension.
It is also important that you understand what can realistically be achieved through blepharoplasty to be a good candidate for the procedure.
Benefits and Limitations of Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty can improve the appearance of the skin around the eyes, producing a more alert appearance and highlighting the natural shape and beauty of your eyes. It is not intended to address signs of aging elsewhere on the face, nor can it be used to raise droopy eyebrows.
Additional changes to the face can be accomplished through other facial plastic surgery options such as facelift and brow lift, both of which are commonly combined with eyelid surgery for optimal results. The procedures that can most benefit you will be determined during your facial plastic surgery consultation with Dr. Eisemann.
