Blepharoplasty

The eyes are one of the first features people notice about one another. Unfortunately, as the signs of aging creep in, the skin around your eyes begins to sag and wrinkle. Droopy skin along your lids makes the eyes appear small, causing you to look older than you are. Puffy eyes can create a permanently sad and tired expression that affects your self-image.

Dr. Eric Wright offers blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery) at his Little Rock practice to help patients from Fayetteville, Jonesboro, Conway, Hot Springs, Pine Bluff, and across Arkansas look more youthful and alert. He is a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience in anti-aging procedures. By reducing undereye bags and removing loose skin, Dr. Wright can open up your eyes again and boost your confidence.

What is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance of the eye area. It can be performed on both the upper and lower lids, depending on a patient’s particular needs. Treatment can also rejuvenate the area surrounding the eyes and address other skin imperfections. A few issues that eyelid surgery can treat include:

  • Loose, sagging skin that droops over the eye
  • Puffiness in the upper eyelids
  • Bags below the eyes
  • Sagging skin or hollowness below the eyes
  • Excess skin and wrinkles around the eyelids

Am I a good candidate for eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery helps patients of any age who struggle with puffiness or sagging around their eyes. Ideal candidates are nonsmokers who:

  • Are in overall good health
  • Have no serious eye conditions
  • Suffer from drooping skin that blocks their vision
  • Experience excessive bags under the eyes or wrinkling around the lids

During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Wright will carefully examine your eyes and determine whether eyelid surgery can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

What happens during eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure that uses local anesthetic with sedation or general anesthetic. During upper eyelid surgery, an incision is made along the natural crease of the lid. For lower eyelid surgery, the incision is placed inside the lid or along the lower lash line. Sagging skin is tightened, fatty deposits are removed, and wrinkles are smoothed out. Once the proper adjustments are made, the incisions are carefully closed with small, fine sutures.

How long does it take to recover from eyelid surgery?

After eyelid surgery, have a close friend or family member drive you home. During the first couple of days, swelling and bruising may develop, but these issues will gradually fade within the first week. Apply cool compresses and keep your head elevated to help resolve swelling and minimize any discomfort. The sutures used during surgery are removed after around 5 to 7 days. Most patients return to work and their daily routine after 2 weeks.

Can eyelid surgery be combined with other procedures?

Yes, eyelid surgery can easily be combined with other anti-aging procedures. It is often used alongside a facelift to tighten loose skin of the lower face and neck area. During your consultation, Dr. Wright will discuss all your options, including whether this procedure combination is right for you.
