Ideal Candidates for Eyelid Lift Houston

You may be a good candidate for an eyelid lift in Houston Tx if you:

  • Are in generally good physical and mental health.
  • Don’t have underlying medical conditions that prevent optimal wound healing or recovery.
  • Don’t smoke or are willing to stop smoking several months before and after the surgery.
  • Have realistic expectations from eyelid surgery.
  • Have saggy or droopy upper eyelids, excess skin on the upper eyelids, poor peripheral vision, or bags under your eyes.

Dr. Chaowen Wu carefully examines your eyelids, discusses your goals, and reviews your medical history to ensure you’re a suitable candidate. She favors natural procedures that improve your overall facial appearance while providing natural-looking results inspired by your own body.

Types of Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Wu specializes in various blepharoplasty techniques to suit the needs of different patients.

  • Upper Eyelid Surgery – this procedure focuses on the upper eyelid, removing excess skin and fatty deposits that can cause drooping eyelids or a hooded appearance. This can improve vision in some cases and create a more alert and youthful look.
  • Lower Eyelid Surgery– this procedure targets the lower eyelid, addressing puffiness, bags, and wrinkles. It can involve removing excess fat or repositioning it to smooth out the under-eye area, resulting in a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.

Dr. Wu's Approach

Eyelid rejuvenation may begin by restoring the position of your eyebrows followed by removing excess skin from the eyelids. This will reduce the sagging and drooping appearance, making your eyes look youthful and alert.

In some cases, your eyelid surgery may be complemented with carefully administered fat injections. If you have under-eye hollows due to the loss of volume and collagen, Dr. Wu can harvest fat cells from other parts of your body and inject them into your under-eye region. This can reduce puffiness and under-eye hollows, thereby improving the results of your eyelid surgery.

Eyelid Surgery Procedure

Your eyelid surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia with sedation. Dr. Wu avoids general anesthesia to negate the possibility of the associated risks. The specific surgical techniques depend on your specific cosmetic goals and concerns. For upper eyelid surgery, the incision will be made along the natural crease of the upper eyelid. For lower eyelid surgery, the incision will be made just beneath the lower eyelid lashes.

After making the necessary incisions, Dr. Wu will carefully remove the appropriate amount of unwanted skin from your eyelids and reposition the muscles. Furthermore, if you have dark circles or under-eye hollows, the surgeon will draw fat cells from other parts of your body, such as the abdomen, and inject them under your eyes. This will make your eyes look more youthful and brighter.

Blepharoplasty Recovery

After your blepharoplasty procedure, you may take oral medications to reduce pain and discomfort. The sutures will be removed after 5 to 7 days, and the post-treatment swelling and bruising will gradually dissipate after 1 to 2 weeks. You can resume wearing contact lenses after 7 to 10 days. Dr. Wu will provide a comprehensive list of aftercare guidelines to ensure you have a smooth and safe recovery process.

Dr. Wu's Facial Procedures

Dr. Chaowen Wu specializes in multiple other facial plastic surgery procedures to suit the needs of different patients:

Full Facelift

Because your face represents you to the world, a facelift may be the most intimate procedure you have ever considered. The goal of facelift surgery is to tighten the facial skin by removing excessive skin from the face due to age, hereditary factors, or weight loss. Learn how Dr. Wu can preserve all of your defining features with a gentle facelift.

Mini Facelift

If you are bothered by signs of aging in your lower face including jowls, marionette lines, and general loss of definition in your jawline, the mini facelift can provide the solution to these problem areas. The incisions are kept in natural creases to keep them concealed.

Neck Lift

A neck lift is the most powerful way to treat advanced neck aging including horizontal wrinkles, vertical neck bands, loose neck muscle and loose skin that form the dreaded “turkey wattle.” It is often combined with a facelift procedure to achieve harmonious rejuvenation as it uses the same incision around the ears.

Facial Fat Transfer

Facial volume is lost over time and can be restored to your youthful self using your own fat. Facial fat transfer heals without scars and provides a natural, soft, and lasting alternative to fillers. This is a great way to rejuvenate the eyes, cheeks, and even lips with minimal down time.

Eyelid Lift

Aging of the eyelids can appear as eyelid hooding, hollowing, dark circles and puffiness under the eyes, and just general tired appearance. Eyelid surgery can remove excess skin and reposition the fat to reawaken tired eyes.

Brow lift

Your eyebrows frame your eyes and with age may start drooping. This can lead to the appearance of looking sad, tired, or angry. A brow lift restores the eyebrows to a youthful position which can help you look rested and relaxed.

Rhinoplasty

Aging of the eyelids can appear as eyelid hooding, hollowing, dark circles and puffiness under the eyes, and just general tired appearance. Eyelid surgery can remove excess skin and reposition the fat to reawaken tired eyes.

FAQs

If you don’t find the answer you are looking for, simply contact us!

How long does the Revel EyeLift last?

The Revel EyeLift will last years as long as you maintain a stable body weight. As our skin continues to age over time, further procedures may be desired.

What is the down time after eyelid surgery?

It may take 1-2 weeks for the swelling and bruising to dissipate after eyelid surgery. Generally individuals will feel comfortable being out in public after 1-2 weeks.

How can I determine if I need a brow lift, upper eyelid lift, or both?

If you have both saggy brows and upper eyelids, a brow lift will likely be recommended to address your symptoms. Once your brows are in proper position and your upper eyelids are still saggy, then an upper eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) procedure may also be recommended.
