Your eyes are usually the first thing that people notice about your appearance and are considered a primary aspect of facial attractiveness. Factors such as age, exposure to the sun, poor nutrition and pollution can contribute to premature aging around the eyes.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, has both cosmetic and functional benefits. By removing puffy bags and correcting droopy eyelids, an eyelid lift can give you a much younger appearance, improve your vision, and help you look refreshed. A Blepharoplasty (or eyelid surgery) may be recommended by our Dallas surgeon as an alternative to other facial procedures, such as a facelift or forehead lift, where minor correction is needed specifically in the eye area.
When there is only a fatty bulge in the lower eyelids with no excess skin, Dallas area cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rai uses the transconjunctival blepharoplasty approach. With this approach, Dr. Rai can avoid making an incision in the skin around the eye. Dr. Rai removes the fatty bulge from a small incision behind the eyelid. The transconjunctival Blepharoplasty approach prevents scarring and is often suitable for younger patients.
