What is Blepharoplasty?
The eyes are a beautiful aspect of the face that deserves to be seen, but sometimes excess skin around the eyes can render a tired and unflattering facial appearance. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez uses blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery) to remove excess skin and lift the lower or upper eyelid, creating a younger and awakened facial appearance. Many men and women have eyelid surgery at Beleza Surgery to correct sagging skin, leading to improved function and appearance. Blepharoplasty, whether lower or upper, creates a fresh, youthful appearance and can give you natural yet noticeable improvements. If you're interested in rejuvenating your eyes with eyelid surgery to remove excess skin, schedule a consultation with Dr. Hix-Hernandez at one of her locations in Cedar Park, Round Rock, Austin, or Killeen, TX.

Eyelid Surgery Reviews
"Joyce is very experienced to inject botox underneath my eyes, the lines used to bother me a lot. She is the only one I know has been trained to do theses areas."- X.W. / Google / May 11, 2017
"Nancy is so great! This was the first time going to see someone about my issues RE my skin. I had uneven skin tone, dark spots, and terrible bags under the eyes. She put me on a regimen that I’ve currently been on for about three weeks now and the difference already is noticeable. My skin looks and feels more youthful, hydrated, evened out, and the bags under my eyes have been reduced almost completely. I will continue to work with her and adding chemical peel to my regimen. I can’t wait to see the complete transformation. I have owed this to my skin!Also, I saw Nancy for Juvederm fillers in my lips. She made them look so natural with just the right amount of POUT. It’s been three weeks and although I love it, I really miss the way my lips looked about a week after, before the swelling completely went away (she warned me Lol) so I will be going for another full syringe and I know it’ll be perfect. The office staff is a pleasure also. They answered any questions I had over the phone and made everything a breeze. :)"- V.O. / Yelp / Jun 11, 2017
"I’m used to having needles puncture my skin (I have many tattoos and piercings), but I was nervous to get injections in my face. The place was super clean when I walked in. A lady was giving the two girls at the front desk a hard time about HER missing a voicemail they had left her about rescheduling. *rolling my eyes into another galaxy* both of the girls handled this angry lady with such grace. Marissa and Shannon were very patient with her and gave off a great vibe to help ease the situation. I was highly impressed! Kathryn then took me back to give me the details on what would be happening with my lips. She was so knowledgeable and I knew after seeing her passion for pouty lips, I was in great hands. I didn’t realize that there was actually a sculpting process as well as needles and filler. She really does know her craft and perfected my lips like an artist! I will surely be going back in about a month to add more juvederm to my lips! I’m so addicted!"- A.J. / Yelp / Sep 23, 2016

What Can I Expect from Eyelid Surgery?
Depending on the complexity of your eyelid surgery, some form of anesthesia will be provided. This cosmetic procedure may be done on the upper eyelid alone, on the bottom portion, or a combination of both upper and lower.
- Upper: Upper blepharoplasty assists in decreasing the folds of skin that impair vision to produce a more flattering look. The incision point is often placed along the natural crease to remove skin and tissue.
- Lower: Eyelid correction on the lower lid is performed to reduce puffy and bulging skin beneath the lower eyelid. In most cases, an incision is carefully made along the lash line to surgically remove tissue and fat, and the skin is delicately lifted to produce a softer, flatter look.
Your eyelid surgery could last up to two hours at our accredited OR in our Cedar Park, TX location based on whether one or both eyes are treated. After the procedure, you should expect a few days to recover and rest at home. A cold compress can help reduce discomfort, swelling, and bruising. The outcomes from blepharoplasty can last years, but while they are long-lasting, the aging process does not stop. To complement your surgical outcomes, other nonsurgical cosmetic treatments at Beleza Surgery, such as lasers, chemical peels, and fillers, can be paired to create a fresh appearance.
Eyelid Surgery FAQ
What are some other benefits of an eyelid lift?
An eyelid lift not only helps to rejuvenate your face, but it can also improve other aspects of your life. You may find your vision field expanding once loose skin on your upper eyelid is removed. It can also be much easier to apply eye makeup when your upper lid is smooth.
Will an eyelid lift fix wrinkles and Crow's feet?
Forehead wrinkles and crow's feet might be better treated with a brow lift or facelift as the improvements of eyelid surgery are limited to the upper or lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can be performed with a nonsurgical procedure such as BOTOX, which can smooth wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. During your consultation, we will create your unique treatment plan to fit your needs and goals.
What about nonsurgical treatments instead of eye surgery?
Skin tightening without surgery and injectable treatments may give you some improvements. Although, if you have moderate to severe loose skin or want results that last a long time, eyelid surgery would be better than a nonsurgical treatment. Once we discuss your needs and goals for your eyes, Dr. Hix-Hernandez will give you her recommendations for a surgical or nonsurgical treatment plan. She may also suggest combining both surgical and nonsurgical procedures for ideal results.
If you find it difficult to see or apply makeup because of hanging skin on the upper eyelid, or you are frustrated by bulging bags underneath your eyes, then cosmetic eyelid surgery at our accredited, on-site operating room at Beleza Surgery in Cedar Park, TX may be right for you.
