Addressing Age-Related Eyelid Changes

Unfortunately, the eyelids often stretch with age, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess skin and fat can gather above and below your eyelids. This can cause unwanted sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids, and bags under the eyes.

Ptosis Surgery in Dallas, TX

Upper eyelid surgery may correct one or both upper eyelids due to a medical rather than a strictly cosmetic issue—even though similar problems are being addressed. 

Ptosis surgery aims to tighten the muscle that lifts your upper eyelid. This issue can occur with age, or the patient may be born with this condition; the muscle that lifts your upper eyelid stretches and weakens, which causes your upper eyelid to sag, hang, or otherwise not be as responsive as would be considered normal.

Some patients are as young as 25, while others are 65. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that more than 90 percent of patients seeking an eyelid lift are over 40, and most of this segment is over 55. However, patients with ptosis or naturally hooded eyelids may seek treatment in their 20s and 30s or earlier.

Recovery and Results

Upper blepharoplasty in Dallas will not stop your eyes from aging. However, the results usually last a long time. Upper eyelid surgery in Dallas can last anywhere from 5 years to a lifetime. Conversely, lower eyelid surgery rarely needs to be done more than once.

After upper eyelid surgery, you'll usually be wrapped in a loose bandage. Your eyelids will be slightly bruised and swollen for 1 to 3 weeks. However, most of our patients report their eyes looking normal and much better than before after the procedure has healed and settled—from 1 to 3 months.
