Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty Houston

Blepharoplasty, also popularly known as “Eyelid lift surgery” is one of the most commonly performed ophthalmic plastic surgeries. During this procedure, redundant and saggy eyelid skin and outpouching fat pockets are reduced and repositioned to restore aesthetic balance and improve appearance.

Sagging Lower Eyelids – Age Related Appearance

In the lower eyelids, age-related and structural changes can result in excess skin, wrinkles and loose eyelids giving an appearance of fatigue, drowsiness or anger. The lower eyelid fat pads can bulge forward resulting in puffiness and bags. In addition, facial descent and volume loss in the mid-face can cast an effect on the periorbital region resulting in a gaunt and tired appearance.

A cosmetic lower eyelid blepharoplasty entails not only the removal of extra eyelid skin, but also the reduction and repositioning of the fat pockets to restore the eyelids to a more youthful and refreshed appearance. In some cases, the eyelid ligaments are tightened to restore the dynamics of the eyelid and improve the aesthetic balance. Dr. Sami also performs mid-face lifts and tightening procedures to restore the volume and aesthetics after age-related descent and deflation.

Every Patient Is Different – Tailored Care

It is tremendously important to tailor the approach to each individual patient as, in this area, small and thoughtfully made changes in the eyelid structures can help mask facial asymmetries and flaws. By the same token, these same changes can reveal and sometimes enhance facial flaws if the surgical plan is made in a “cookie-cutter” or inexperienced fashion.

The Procedure

Blepharoplasty, just like any eyelid procedure, begins with a thorough knowledge of periorbital structures together with a unique and customized approach to each individual patient. Remember, no two eyes are the same, let alone any two faces. In addition, every person has some degree of asymmetry between the two halves of the face.

Dr. Sami carefully customizes her operative plan for each patient, taking into account their unique features such as eyebrow position, facial symmetry, shape of the eye, position of fat pads, skin quality, muscle tone, dry eye problems and position of eyeball in relation to the facial bones. Based on her preoperative assessment and the needs and expectations of each patient, she ensures her surgical plan is carried out with compassionate care to yield fantastic results.

The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia or intravenous sedation in an outpatient setting. The surgery can be performed through an external or an internal approach depending on the amount of skin removal required and the presence or absence of skin sutures varies with the approach. The procedure typically takes two hours and can be performed at the same time as other eyelid or orbital procedures, such as droopy upper eyelid (ptosis) repair, upper eyelid blepharoplasty, browlift, eyelid malposition correction and dermal filler injections.

At Houston Oculofacial Plastic Surgery, we pride ourselves on our compassionate patient care, our sensitivity and understanding of each patient’s needs and expectations and our drive for excellence. Our goal is to help you and your loved ones feel welcome, comfortable and 100% satisfied with your experience.
