Eyelid Surgery: A Minor Procedure That Delivers Major Results

When it comes to changing your appearance with facial plastic surgery, even minor procedures can produce dramatic results. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is no exception. 

At The Yeung Institute in Houston, Texas, Dr. Cecil Yeung offers eyelid surgery on its own or in conjunction with other surgeries, such as a facelift. But how exactly does this minor surgery deliver major results? Here’s what you need to know.

Understanding eyelid surgery

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that focuses solely on your eyelids. As you age, the skin around your eyes tends to lose elasticity. Loss of elasticity often leads to sagging, puffy eyelids, as well as the formation of wrinkles. 

Eyelid surgery addresses these concerns by removing excess skin and eliminating or repositioning pockets of fat to restore a more youthful and alert look.

Benefits of eyelid surgery

When it comes to results, eyelid surgery provides many. 

Restores a more youthful appearance

The eyes are often referred to as the windows to the soul, but unfortunately, sagging eyelids can make you appear tired, sad, or older than you actually are. Eyelid surgery can effectively reverse these signs of aging, rejuvenating your entire face and making your eyes appear more vibrant and refreshed.

Eliminates puffiness and under-eye bags

Eyelid surgery can eliminate puffiness and under-eye bags that are often caused by fat deposits. By precisely removing or repositioning these deposits, Dr. Yeung creates a smoother eyelid contour, resulting in a more rested and energetic appearance.

Improves your vision

What’s more impressive than a plastic surgery that enhances your appearance and your vision? If excessive skin on your upper eyelids obstructs your field of vision, it can make daily activities challenging. Eyelid surgery can remove excess skin and enhance both the aesthetic appearance and functionality of your eyes.

Boosts your self-confidence 

When you look good, you feel good. Eyelid surgery that restores a more youthful and vibrant appearance can have a profound impact on your self-esteem. The refreshed look you achieve through this procedure often translates into increased self-confidence and a positive outlook on life 一 at home, at work, and in social settings.

What to expect during this minor procedure

Eyelid surgery is typically an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia. Dr. Yeung carefully makes incisions along the natural creases of the eyelids to minimize scarring. 

Through these incisions, he removes excess skin and removes or repositions and fat to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome. When paired with tiny dissolving stitches, scarring is minimal. 

The procedure generally takes a few hours, and the recovery period is relatively short, with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Eyelid surgery always starts with a consultation

To ensure the best results and minimize potential risks, your plastic surgery journey starts with a consultation. Under the guidance of Dr. Yeung, you can commit to eyelid surgery after reviewing your aesthetic goals and determining whether you’d like to add other procedures.

In other words, you can count on great results when you work with an internationally renowned facial plastic surgeon who provides a thorough assessment, offers personalized recommendations, and guides you through the entire process.

Eyelid surgery 一 a minor yet powerful procedure 一 has the ability to transform the appearance of your eyes and rejuvenate your entire face. By addressing concerns such as sagging skin, puffiness, and under-eye bags, this surgery can help you regain a youthful and refreshed look.
