About Eyelid Surgery
The eyes are an attractive aspect of the face that deserve to be seen; however an abundance of skin on top or around the eyes can render an unflattering look. Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. S. Benjamin Albright performs blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, to lift and tighten the upper or lower eyelid, creating a younger and awakened facial appearance. Countless men and women have eyelid surgery at Albright Plastic Surgery to correct sagging skin, which helps with both function and appearance. Whether upper or lower, eyelid surgery creates a softer, younger appearance and can produce subtle yet striking improvements.
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that is popular among both men and women. During the initial consult, treatment alternatives will be provided based on the condition that need to be addressed. Most often, ideal candidates are impaired by excess, sagging skin and folds on the upper eyelid or puffy skin below bottom eyelid. These conditions can cause function problems which can hinder of everyday life. For a rejuvenated facial appearance, eyelid surgery may be the right treatment for you. If you have excess, hanging skin on the upper eyelid, or bulges and puffiness under the eyes, blepharoplasty can repair this to give you a softer appearance.

"THANK YOU to the ENTIRE TEAM for changing my life and never leaving my side throughout this this journey!! Due to a genetic mutation (BRCA2) and an extensive family history of cancer, I elected to have a prophylactic mastectomy with immediate DIEP flap reconstruction. Dr. Albright and Katie discussed all options with my husband and I, and realistic expectations were outlined. Together, they listened to my wishes, concerns and fears with patience and respect. I felt safe, relevant and a sense of calm was finally achieved in my life during a very trying time. The results are impressively beautiful and natural. The surgery was meticulous, requiring the highest level of surgical excellence and precision, which Dr. Albright naturally possesses. The brilliance of his work is reflected in my results.

Plan Your Procedure
what to expect
During blepharoplasty, depending on the nature of the surgery, general anesthesia or IV sedation will be used. This cosmetic procedure may be done on the upper eyelid alone, on the bottom portion, or a combination of both treatments at once.
Upper blepharoplasty assists in reducing the loose of skin that droops over the eye and attains a more flattering look. An incision is usually made along the natural crease to remove skin and tissue.
Lower bleph is performed to reduce bulging, bloated skin underneath the lower eyelid. The incision is made below the lash line to allow access to remove fat, and the skin is gently lifted to create a flatter, smoother look. In some cases, a nonsurgical laser treatment can be performed to assist with discoloration, while injectable fillers can be used for additional volume and smoothness if needed.
Eyelid surgery can last up to two hours depending on whether one or both eyes are treated. After surgery, patients should allow several days to rest. Cold compression can help reduce swelling, bruising, and discomfort. The results from eyelid surgery can last years and even though the results are lasting, the aging process does not stop. To continue to enhance the surgical outcomes, nonsurgical treatments such as injections, filllers, and laser can be paired to create a glowing appearance.
