What is a Blepharoplasty?

Bags under the eyes and drooping skin over the eyelids may cause patients to look tired, uninterested, sad, and worn out, despite how they may feel. Many patients seek rejuvenation of the eyes to appear refreshed, bright, and cheerful. Drooping skin in the eyelids are caused by several factors; progressive loss of elastic tissue and collagen in the skin, changes of the orbicularis muscle that surrounds the eye, and the downward pull by gravitational forces as we age. Additionally, many patients have a hereditary predisposition to loose skin around the eyes. Bags or puffiness under the eyes is caused by orbital fat being pulled out by gravity with a weakening orbital septum. This causes a bulge or pseudogenization of fat, which results in puffy lids. Blepharoplasty is the gold standard for eyelid rejuvenation.

Am I a candidate for Blepharoplasty?

Are you eligible for this transformation? In most cases, yes! However, it's essential to consider some concerns:

  • Age: While there isn't a strict age limit, candidates are typically over 35.
  • Health: Certain health issues or allergies may warrant further evaluation.
  • Consultation: It all begins with a consultation with Dr. Rodman. Your medical and surgical history, current medications, and eye-related concerns will be thoroughly reviewed. The physical examination will assess the extent of skin laxity, lower lid tightness, and tear production.

Sometimes, patients with lower lid laxity might require a lid-tightening procedure in addition to their lower blepharoplasty. Dr. Rodman will make sure to distinguish between excessive upper eyelid skin and a drooping eyebrow, as the latter should be corrected before addressing eyelid issues. The positioning of your eyebrows in relation to the orbital rim is crucial in determining the right approach. Symmetry between the eyebrows and eyelids is equally important. Dr. Rodman, a board-certified Houston plastic surgeon, will rule out any underlying medical conditions, such as allergic rhinitis, thyroid disease, or ptosis, before proceeding with a blepharoplasty.

It all starts with a consultation.

What to Expect

At your Houston Blepharoplasty consultation Dr. Rodman will need to know your full medical and surgical history as well as any medications that you take. She will review any medical history related to your eyes including problems with vision, if you wear glasses or contacts, irritation or tearing, dry eyes. You’ll have a thorough exam which will evaluate how much extra skin you have on the upper and lower lids, tightness of the lower lid, as well as tear production.

Some patients who have lower lid laxity may need a lid tightening procedure at the same time they undergo a lower blepharoplasty Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Rodman will check for this at your visit. The physical exam is very important to differentiate excessive skin of the upper eyelid versus a drooping eyebrow. A drooping eyebrow can push down the eyelid skin and make it appear loose, but the brow should be corrected before the eyelid.T hese two procedures can be done at the same time if needed.

Additional Reading

The position of the eyebrow in relation to the orbital rim is important in determining which procedure should be done to make the patient look more refreshed. In women the eyebrow should sit right above the orbital rim. In men, the brow should sit right at the orbital rim. Any symmetry between the eyebrows and eyelids is also very important to note before undergoing surgery. It is important to be evaluated by a board-certified Houston Facial plastic surgeon such as Dr. Rodman to rule out any medical conditions that may be responsible for the appearance of the eyes such as allergic rhinitis, thyroid disease, and ptosis. These may need treatment before proceeding with a blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty Surgery

discuss which option is best for you

The surgery is performed under local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia or IV sedation depending on which procedures are needed as well as the patient preference. Patients are able to go home the same day after surgery. The upper blepharoplasty is performed through it in incision in the crease of the upper eyelid. This heals extremely well and is barely visible soon after surgery. The lower blepharoplasty can be performed two ways. The first is through a small incision right under the lower eyelashes, which leaves a barely visible scar hidden by the lashes. The second is an incision inside the lower eyelid, which leaves no scar. The each option has risks and benefits, and Dr. Rodman will discuss which option is best for you.

Upper Blepharoplasty?

Upper blepharoplasty, also known as upper eyelid surgery, is a precise procedure aimed at rejuvenating the upper eyelids. During this surgery, a subtle incision is made within the natural crease of the upper eyelid, ensuring that any resulting scar is discreet. Through this incision, excess skin and fatty tissue are skillfully removed. The underlying muscles are often tightened, addressing issues of sagging and drooping. This procedure results in a more refreshed and youthful appearance, with eyes that appear brighter and more alert. Upper blepharoplasty typically takes about 1-2 hours, and recovery is relatively swift, with most patients returning to their regular activities within a week.

Lower Blepharoplasty?

Lower blepharoplasty, or lower eyelid surgery, targets the concerns of the lower eyelids. This procedure offers two main approaches: an external incision just beneath the lower eyelashes, which conceals any potential scarring, or an internal incision within the lower eyelid, leaving no visible external marks. Lower blepharoplasty primarily addresses issues of puffiness, under-eye bags, and excess skin. Orbital fat is repositioned or removed, and the underlying tissues are adjusted to create a smoother and more youthful under-eye contour. Recovery involves some swelling and bruising, which typically resolves within one to two weeks, revealing a revitalized lower eye area.

Blepharoplasty Recovery

After their blepharoplasty Houston patients should expect swelling and bruising that can be dramatic the first week, but will subside the second week after surgery. Patients may have increased tearing, a feeling of dry eyes, and some may have a burning sensation which will resolve after 1 to 2 weeks. Patients should not wear contact lenses for several weeks after surgery.
