Eyelid Surgery

What is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that improves the appearance of the eyelids. You use your eyes to communicate all the time, and you don’t want them to make you look tired or old. Eyelid surgery can be used to address droopy upper eyelids or puffy lower eyelids. By removing the excess tissue and correcting wrinkles, the eyes can be returned to their more youthful appearance making you look happier and well-rested for a major confidence boost!

Patient Results


Your Customized Eyelid Surgery

The techniques used in your blepharoplasty procedure will be tailored to your individual concerns and needs. If excess drooping upper eyelids are your concern, upper eyelid surgery can be performed. Incisions will be made in the upper eyelid crease to lift and tighten loose skin on the upper lids. If puffy lower eyelids and under-eyes are a concern, liposuction techniques may be used in this area during lower eyelid surgery. The upper and lower eyelids can be treated during one outpatient procedure.

Blepharoplasty surgery is often combined with other facial procedures such as a facelift. Sometimes, a brow lift is actually needed instead of eyelid surgery. During your consultation at Shaddix Plastic Surgery, Dr. Shaddix will assess your concerns and help create a plan to make you look your best.

The Procedure 

Eyelid surgery may be performed in the office or in the surgery center under local anesthesia. You will be able to go home after your procedure. Dr. Shaddix makes tiny incisions in the natural creases of your eyelids to leave virtually no visible scarring. Excess skin is removed and the fatty deposits are excised or repositioned. The overall effect is a tightening of the lids to produce a youthful appearance.

Recovery After Eyelid Surgery

You may return to light activities the day after eyelid surgery. There may be very mild discomfort after eyelid surgery that is easily managed with the medication prescribed to you by Dr. Shaddix. You should make sure to keep your head elevated and allow yourself plenty of rest for one week after surgery. There is frequently some bruising with eyelid surgery which will typically resolve within two weeks.

Your result will continue to develop for four to six weeks after surgery as you heal. As with all surgery at Shaddix Plastic Surgery, you will be given detailed before-and-after surgery instructions, and Dr. Shaddix will be available to answer questions and guide you along the way.

I could not have imagined a better experience or a more caring doctor. I had a facial rejuvenation (eyelid lift, minor nose job, & jawline/neck lift). The results are amazing! I feel fabulous every time I look in the mirror. Dr. Shaddix (and his staff) are the most caring medical professionals.”
