Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty Houston
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty, also popularly known as lower eyelid lift surgery, is a commonly performed ophthalmic plastic surgery procedure. During this facial procedure, redundant and saggy eyelid skin and outpouching fat pockets in the lower eyelids are reduced and repositioned to restore aesthetic balance and improve appearance. Dr. Mirwat Sami is an expert in the field of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery who can provide you with outstanding results from your lower eyelid blepharoplasty in Houston.
SAGGING LOWER EYELIDS CREATE AN AGED APPEARANCE
In the lower eyelids, age-related and structural changes can result in excess skin, wrinkles, and sagging. These create 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 negatively affect the periorbital region, resulting in a gaunt and tired appearance.
COSMETIC LOWER EYELID BLEPHAROPLASTY
Although this procedure has been in existence for a long time, it has been tremendously refined, and its true potential towards achieving aesthetic harmony is well appreciated and harnessed in today’s enlightened age.
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.
The goal of cosmetic blepharoplasty is to reveal a more invigorated, youthful, and refreshed appearance. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty only requires a short period of downtime and offers potentially excellent rejuvenating results.
Dr. Sami also performs mid-face lifts and tightening procedures to restore the volume and aesthetics after age-related descent and deflation.

TAILORED CARE FOR EACH UNIQUE CASE
Lower blepharoplasty, just like any eyelid procedure, begins with a thorough knowledge of periorbital structures coupled 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.
It is tremendously important to tailor the lower eyelid surgery approach to each individual patient because 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. That is why it is imperative that you seek an oculoplastic surgeon trained in all the subtle nuances of this procedure and its countless outcomes to perform this cosmetic procedure. This ensures that you can achieve the best results possible.
Dr. Sami is an expert oculoplastic surgeon with years of experience performing lower blepharoplasty surgery in Houston. Dr. Sami’s high degree of skill and her attention to detail ensures that her patients obtain excellent results and outstanding care.
The first step will be coming in for your lower eyelid blepharoplasty consultation in Houston. Dr. Sami carefully customizes her operative plan for each patient, taking into account their unique features. These include eyebrow position, facial symmetry, the shape of the eye, position of fat pads, skin quality, muscle tone, dry eye problems, and position of the eyeball in relation to the facial bones.
Based on her pre-operative assessment and the needs and expectations of each patient, Dr. Sami ensures her surgical plan is carried out with compassionate care to yield fantastic results.
The lower blepharoplasty 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.
Once the tiny and precise incisions are created, the excess fat and/or skin tissue is removed to tighten the area. 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, brow lift, eyelid malposition correction, and dermal filler injections.
LOWER EYELID BLEPHAROPLASTY RECOVERY
The average recovery time following lower eyelid blepharoplasty is between 10 to 14 days. Patients can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, blurred vision, dryness, and some discomfort. The recovery period is typically not painful. Medication can help to manage any pain you may experience.
