McKinney & Allen Blepharoplasty
Eyelid Surgery to Improve Overall Facial Appearance
The signs of aging are inevitable, and unfortunately, our skin’s volume and elasticity begin to diminish. As we age, our collagen production starts to decrease, the skin begins to sag, and fatty deposits begin to weigh down the skin, resulting in a more tired appearance. When these aging factors start affecting the eyes, it can affect both the upper and the lower eyelids and may lead to wrinkles and bulges.
Here at Heritage Eye Center, our ophthalmologists and staff are capable of reversing the symptoms of aging, by performing blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery; to improve the appearance of eyelids and surrounding eye regions.
Our experienced team is specialized in eyelid surgery to help you restore a more rejuvenated and refreshed look. Contact us online or call (972) 430-4764 today to learn more about our McKinney & Allen blepharoplasty procedure. We offer same-day appointments!
What Is Eyelid Surgery?
This procedure is generally executed under general anesthesia or an intravenous sedative. Depending on the position, an incision will be made, either along the natural crease of the upper eyelid, the lash line, or via a transconjunctival incision on the lower eyelid. The incisions are then closed with a combination of removable sutures and skin adhesives.
Recovery time for the procedure is considerably short and the side effects are very minimal.
What Can it Treat?
Specifically, eyelid surgery can help with the treatment of:
Excess upper eyelid skin that potentially impairs your peripheral vision
Excess lower eyelid skin that weighs down the lid and droops it to the point where the white part of the eye is seen beneath the iris
Under-eye bags or puffiness
Enlarged bulges that result from the fatty cushion leaking out from the membrane and herniating out, ultimately bulging the eyelids out
Increased appearance of fine wrinkles on lower eyelid
Who is a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Blepharoplasty can help address issues such as sagging eyelids, excessive or puffy skin in the eye regions, dark spots beneath the eyes, and crow’s feet. Good candidates for the surgical procedure include:
Those who have good overall health with no medical conditions that can prolong or inhibit the healing process
Those without pre-existing severe eye conditions that would make the eyelid surgery too complicated to perform
Those who are able to excuse themselves from their work and stray away from certain eye-straining activities during the recovery period
Those who understand the life-altering benefits of blepharoplasty and who desire subtle and natural-looking results
