The eyes are commonly known as the Window to your Soul. It is your personality’s most attractive feature and a giant secret keeper of your age. Over time, our genetics and natural aging can lead to droopy, puffy, tired-looking eyes. These can communicate unwanted emotions such as tiredness or anger. Nik Rana, M.D. is a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic eyelid surgery in McKinney and Frisco, TX.

Dr. Rana rejuvenates the face during this transformative plastic surgery procedure by contouring the eyes and restoring a refreshed, more awake appearance. Eyelid surgery helps patients look their best and feel more confident in their daily lives.

What is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, or Blepharoplasty, is a facial plastic surgery procedure performed to revitalize the eye area. During the process, excess tissue of the eyelid is removed from the upper and or lower lids to create a more youthful appearance, eliminating hooding, wrinkles, and crepey skin

Who is an ideal candidate for eyelid surgery?

Clients who struggle with drooping and puffiness in the eyelids may appear older than they actually are, which can be distressing. In addition, cosmetic problems with the eyelids can lead to an angry, sad or disgruntled facial expression, even when the patient is in the best of moods. Low-hanging eyelids may also obscure the vision, necessitating surgery. 

Patients who undergo blepharoplasty should be non-smokers who are mentally and physically healthy, and who do not suffer from any major medical conditions such as bleeding disorders or hypertension. They should be realistic and practical in their expectations, based on a private consultation with our team. 

Before & After

What to Expect for Blepharoplasty in McKinney, TX

Dr. Rana will begin blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) by creating strategic incisions in one of three hidden areas: the natural crease of the upper eyelid, along the lash line of the lower eyelid, or inside the lower lid.

Dr. Rana trims the tissue to remove excess skin and sometimes fat. In other cases, the fat is repositioned or surgically adjusted to contour the under-eye area. He then tightens the muscles around the eyelid to create long-lasting improvement.

Once the eyelid surgery is complete, the incisions are carefully sutured closed, or skin adhesives are applied to ensure proper healing without noticeable scars.

After completing an upper or lower eyelid surgery in McKinney, TX, patients will return home soon after their blepharoplasty plastic surgery. Blepharoplasty patients must arrange for a ride to and from the surgery center as they will not be allowed to drive themselves after receiving anesthesia.

Can Eyelid Surgery Be Combined With Other Procedures?

Cosmetic surgery of the eyes is often combined with other facial plastic surgery procedures such as:

For Example, Dermal Fillers can also be used in the nasolabial folds and marionette lines around the mouth to rejuvenate the face. Other patients may not display many signs of aging in other areas of the face and might elect to receive a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) as a stand-alone surgery.

Recovering from Blepharoplasty

The eye area may feel sensitive and tight for the first few days following a blepharoplasty eyelid procedure, and some patients experience dry eyes. It may be a week after surgery before patients notice visible changes to the eye area, as much of the swelling and bruising will have subsided by then.

When undergoing eyelid surgery in McKinney, TX, patients are asked to protect their eyes from the Texas sun, refrain from wearing unapproved skincare or cosmetic products, and take it easy for the first week following a blepharoplasty plastic surgery. Patients should also take all prescribed medications as directed to speed up the healing process. Adhering to all post-op instructions will help prevent complications and encourage optimal results.

FAQ

Are there any alternatives to undergoing a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)?

In cases of mild hooding and creasing of the upper eyelids, brow lift plastic surgery might be an effective alternative to eyelid surgery. The procedure lifts and repositions the brows and smoothens forehead wrinkles. There are also non-surgical options to rejuvenate the eyes, like the BEL procedure (Brilliant Eyelid Lift) or laser skin resurfacing.

Will a blepharoplasty permanently restore youthful eyes?

While an upper or lower blepharoplasty surgically modifies the appearance of the eyes and can provide long-lasting rejuvenation, the area will continue to age with time and lifestyle choices. Smoking, unprotected sun exposure, and other habits will negatively impact the longevity of the results. A great way to maintain the results of a blepharoplasty is to undergo non-surgical procedures like the BEL (brilliant eyelid lift) procedure, laser skin resurfacing, facial fillers, or Botox injections.

What are the possible side effects of blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)?

While unwanted side effects and risks are rare due to numerous precautions, the following may occur: infection, bleeding, injury to muscles around the eye, vision defects, adverse reaction to anesthesia, poor aesthetic results.
