Upper 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 Eyelids, An Age Related Issue
Age-related and structural changes can result in redundant upper eyelid skin, saggy and droopy eyelids and an appearance of fatigue, drowsiness or anger. In addition, the upper eyelid fat pads can bulge forward making these folds of skin heavier and more pronounced.
A cosmetic upper 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.
Low Downtime – Excellent Rejuvenation Results
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty (see also lower eyelid blepharoplasty) is a very commonly performed procedure, with low down-time and potentially excellent rejuvenative results. It is, however, 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. 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 on your eyes to ensure you achieve the best results.
The goal in a cosmetic blepharoplasty (upper eyelid lift) is to reveal a more invigorated, youthful and refreshed appearance. Dr. Sami’s vast experience with cosmetic surgery and Blepharoplasty Eyelid surgery in Houston and her attention to details ensures her patients obtain excellent results and outstanding care.

Blepharoplasty Eyelid Surgery, just like any plastic eye surgery 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 procedure typically takes an hour and can be performed at the same time as other eyelid or orbital procedures, such as droopy upper eyelid (ptosis) repair, lower eyelid blepharoplasty, browlift, eyelid malposition correction and dermal filler injections.
