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.
"Miracle maker - wanted a breast reduction since I was a teenager - I had wanted a breast reduction since I was a teenager. I’m now 60. I lived with pain, discomfort, rashes, wrong fitting clothes, low self esteem, hurting ever day, etc. I decided it was time for me. I had seen Dr. Hix results in other patients and how caring she was. She talks to you understands what YOU want. Her staff is amazing I had my breast reduction done. Was beyond pleased, so glad I picked Dr. Hix and highly recommend her and her team. I will use her again. I absolutely adore her."- A. / RealSelf / Apr 12, 2022

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.
