Eyelid Surgery in Dallas, TX

The eyes are typically the first thing a person notices about someone’s appearance. As a person ages, they can begin to develop lines, puffiness, and wrinkles around the eyes. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, removes fatty tissue and excess skin to eliminate wrinkles and lines to give a more youthful, alert look.

This facial surgery is beneficial for patients looking to improve their eyelids’ aesthetic and patients who have problems with the functionality of their eyelids.

What Can Eyelid Surgery Do?

Reduce Wrinkles & Lines

As a person ages, they begin to develop wrinkles and lines around the eyes. Blepharoplasty works to remove the excess, crepey eyelid skin that is causing the appearance of wrinkles.

Improve Sightlines

The muscles and skin surrounding the eyes can weaken with age. In some patients, this excess tissue on the upper eyelid can hang over the eye, causing vision to be impaired. Eyelid surgery can lift and tighten the tissues, making it easier to see.

Eliminate Puffiness

Over time, the fatty tissue in the eyelids can become displaced. This can cause the eyes to look puffy, giving patients the appearance of being angry, tired, or sad. Eyelid surgery works to remove or redistribute the fat deposits to restore a more youthful appearance.

How Is Eyelid Surgery Performed?

During your consultation with Dr. Morales, he will discuss options regarding which type of eyelid surgery is best for you based on your specific needs and desires.

Upper Eyelid

Upper eyelid surgery lifts and smooths the eyelid for a youthful appearance. It can also make it easier to see by eliminating drooping tissue.

  • A discreet incision is made on the upper eyelid, usually along the natural eyelid crease.
  • The skin, muscle, and fatty tissue are adjusted, and excess tissue is removed.

A lower eyelid lift eliminates the look of wrinkles, drooping, and puffiness below the eyelid to give a more alert appearance.

  • The incision can be made on the inside of the eyelid or directly below the lash line.
  • Displaced fat may be adjusted or removed, and excess skin is removed.
