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.
"overdue five star review for Vanessa and the friendly staff. Incredibly satisfied with my procedure done by the talented Vanessa Bennington. I loved how informative she was during my entire visit but still made me feel completely comfortable to ask any questions or concerns that I had. I left feeling so beautiful and happy!!! We did some botox and two syringes (one voluma, one juvederm) to help enhance my cheeks, lips and chin. It’s been nearly 7 months and I’m still happy with my results. I may be due for my second treatment of botox but that’s expected. I wouldn’t even waste anymore time, look no further. Highly recommend her!!!"- C.L. / Yelp / Sep 03, 2021

I’ve been seeing her for over a year now and couldn’t be happier! She is extremely knowledgeable and will be honest with you regarding the best treatment options."- K.T. / Google / Aug 06, 2021
"I love Dr. Hicks & her staff. She took the time to listen to me and really tried to help me. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well. I've already recommended them to my friends... and I've left my former cosmetic/dermatology group...and no going back!"- A.M. / Google / Jul 30, 2021
"Dr. Hix-Hernandez and her medical team were absolutely amazing. I recently had a BBL with lipo done and the experience was seamless and everyone was so attentive to my needs. I chose Beleza per a family member’s recommendation and after tons of research. It is so important to stress to ensure you do research and select and board certified plastic surgeon if doing a BBL. Dr. Hix-Hernandez had the credentials and experience I was seeking in a surgeon. I will absolutely recommend Beleza as they were also extremely prompt and professional from beginning to end. Sincerely, A very happy patient 🍑🍑"- M.M. / Google / Jul 24, 2021
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.
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. This enhancement can allow you to look and feel younger and more alert while offering a gorgeous answer to your vision impairment concerns. We invite you to call one of our locations in Cedar Park, Round Rock, Austin, or Killeen, TX to schedule a consultation with Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez.
