Eyelid Lift Surgery Fort Worth
Overview Humans are so dependent upon their eyes for self-expression, and if our eyes appear tired or aged, we may not be sending out the messages we intend. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is performed in Anderson Plastic Surgery’s Fort Worth facility to successfully remove under-eye bags, lift drooping or tired lids, and soften wrinkles in a truly natural-appearing presentation. The look does not seem “worked on” so the result allows the real you to be expressed as you intend – happy, youthful, and confident. At your consultation, plastic surgeon Dr. Daniels will thoroughly convey the precautions we take during eyelid surgery to obtain the natural result you seek. Upon completion, you will have a brighter, more open look to your eyes.

Upper Eyelid Surgery
Incisions for upper eyelid surgery are made within the natural fold of the lid and extended outward, allowing for maximal concealing of any scarring. The incision is carried out as wide as possible in order to address any other skin folds outside of the upper eye that require attention. After access is gained through the incision, excess skin, tissue and, when necessary, a portion of the orbicularis oculi muscle, are removed. Closure of the skin is accomplished with absorbable sutures, and the scar remains inconspicuous because of its location in the natural crease.
Lower Eyelid Surgery
After making an incision along the bottom lash line, the surgeon removes excess fat and tissue. For patients who still have good skin tone, a transconjunctival blepharoplasty can be performed. This technique approaches the under-eye from an incision inside the lower eyelid rather than outside it. In patients lacking fat in this area, injectables can be used to fill in any deficiencies. This often occurs in patients with dark under-eye circles. While injectables won’t change the color of dark circles, they will improve the overall appearance of the eye.
What To Expect During And After Surgery
Eyelid surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure in an accredited surgical facility. Patients are placed under general anesthesia for this procedure. For both upper and lower eyelids to be corrected, surgery typically lasts around 2 hours. Afterward, bruising and swelling will be apparent around the eyes. Ice compresses, elevation, and medicated eye ointments will help ease these symptoms. Before long, family and friends will notice the remarkable improvement created by this subtle change. Often, the actual procedure is hard to determine even though the results are unmistakable!
You may be quite pleased to find that eyelid surgery actually improves your vision by omitting any excess skin that may have impaired vision. Aesthetically, a younger appearance is revealed, and you can see the world completely unobstructed. Because the eyelids are so delicate, it is imperative to select a skilled surgeon with expertise specifically in eyelid surgery. Strong attention is given during this surgery to ensure that the eyes themselves remain untouched. [/su_spoiler]
