Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that lifts and tightens the eyelids. Eyelid surgery generally involves making a small incision along the crease of the targeted eyelid, following which excess skin tissues and fat cells are removed. Tightening excess skin can make the eyelids look firm and youthful. Eyelid surgery in Dallas can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, depending on your condition and goals.

Goals of Eyelid Surgery Include:

  • Correct drooping or heavy upper eyelids
  • Reduce fine lines and crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Improve vision by removing the drooping eyelid skin
  • Reduce puffiness and under-eye bags
  • Reduce orbital fat bulges
  • Make the eyes look more youthful and rested

Types of Eyelid Surgeries

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper eyelid surgery is performed on the upper eyelids. The surgeon makes an incision on the upper eyelids to remove excess skin and fat tissues, making the eyelids look more youthful. This procedure can treat sagging eyelid skin, reduce puffiness, and improve your vision.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Lower eyelid surgery is performed on the lower eyelids. The surgeon makes an incision on the lower eyelids to remove excess skin and fat tissues, improving the appearance of bags under the eyes. This procedure can also correct deep tear troughs and dark circles.

Double Eyelid Surgery

Double eyelid surgery is performed on the upper and lower eyelids simultaneously. The surgeon for your eyelid surgery in Dallas trims away excess skin tissues and fat deposits from both eyelids to rejuvenate your facial contours, making you look significantly younger and more refreshed.

Candidates for Eyelid Surgery:

  • May look sad, tired, angry, or frustrated because of drooping eyelids
  • May have trouble seeing clearly because of sagging upper eyelids
  • Want to improve the youthfulness and overall contours of the eyelids
  • Have sufficient skin elasticity
  • Are in good physical and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations from the procedure
  • Are nonsmokers or willing to stop smoking before and after the procedure
  • Can take around one week off work and other responsibilities to recover

Dr. Chiodo’s Personalized Eyelid Surgery Technique

Dr. Chiodo performs a highly personalized eyelid surgery after a thorough evaluation. During your consultation, he carefully examines your eyelids, studies the degree of laxity or excess tissues that need to be removed, discusses your goals and concerns, and reviews your medical history. After a thorough evaluation, he determines if you need upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or double eyelid surgery. He also curates a personalized surgery plan.

Your eyelid surgery in Dallas is performed under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. For upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Chiodo makes an incision within the fold of the eyelid, through which he removes excess skin and fat deposits and tightens the muscles. For lower eyelid surgery, he makes an incision just below the eyelash line, through which he removes excess skin and fat tissues. You may also need both procedures.

In some cases, Dr. Chiodo may perform a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, which involves making an incision inside the lower eyelid, following which dissolving sutures are applied to tighten the skin tissues. Regardless of the surgical technique used, you can rest assured that the incisions will be completely invisible and hidden from plain sight.
