Eyelid Surgery Overview

Eyelid surgery is a highly adaptable procedure, and we personalize each treatment carefully so that we target your precise expectations. Our goal for each procedure is for our patients to look and feel like their best. We offer several different options for blepharoplasty in Austin, including:

Upper Eyelid Surgery

For the upper eyelids, we focus on improving the looseness or droopy features that come with age. Genetics can also cause eyelids to droop, and we can help with that as well. As our eyelids droop, we can look tired and aged, even if we feel quite the opposite! Upper eyelid procedures can deliver drastic improvements that leave you looking alert, younger, and overall vibrant.

Upper Blepharoplasty

With upper blepharoplasty, we focus on removing excess skin and tightening the eyelid subtly. Even though the changes are minor, the results can be stunning. We also are sure to hide any incisions in the eye’s natural folds. This way, any of the minimal scarring is out of sight! You can also get this procedure on only one eyelid if you want to address any asymmetry!

Quad Blepharoplasty

The ultimate rejuvenation surgery, quad eyelid surgery focuses on both the upper and lower eyelids. We can work with you to build a comprehensive plan that will bring out the best in your eyelids, giving you an incredible aesthetic boost. Go from tired and fatigued-looking to fully vibrant with one procedure.

Asian Eyelid Surgery

This unique Asian eyelid surgery allows patients to add a new dynamic aesthetic to their eyelids. We focus on not “Westernizing” our patients’ eyelids but instead giving them a striking eyelid crease that builds upon their natural beauty. Each procedure is adapted to match your unique eyelid structures and build upon this natural foundation.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Lower eyelid procedures tend to focus purely on cosmetic improvements. But that does not make this option any less important! The cosmetic enhancements that come with lower eyelid surgery can give you a significant boost in confidence and pride in how you look. Aging and genetics can often lead to the under-eye area looking hollow, dark, or thin. When this happens, we may start to look tired or fatigued, even if you feel entirely alert!

What Is Lower Eyelid Surgery Like?

First, you can rest assured that you will be comfortable throughout your procedure. Patients will have either local anesthetic or sedation in order to make the entire surgery stress-free. The option that is best for you depends on your health and personal preference.

During a lower blepharoplasty, your surgeon will make incisions along the lower eyelid, either just below the lash line or inside the lower eyelid itself. This way, any scarring that results from the surgery will be hidden. Through these incisions, your surgeon will then remove any excess skin or fat before repositioning and suturing the lower eyelid into its new, improved position.

The entire procedure usually takes about two hours to complete, although this will depend on the specific needs of each individual patient. The surgery is usually done as an outpatient procedure, which means that you will be able to go home the same day.

How Does Dr. Shah Vira Customize Lower Blepharoplasty?

Dr. Shah Vira recognizes that every patient is unique and, as such, will have different goals for their lower blepharoplasty. In order to give each patient the best possible results, Dr. Shah Vira will tailor the procedure to their specific needs and desired outcomes. This may involve making small adjustments to the incisions or removing a different amount of skin or fat. We may also provide you with options for combining procedures, such as with upper or a brow lift, to further enhance your results. No matter what, you can be confident that you will get the best results possible with Dr. Shah Vira.

How It Works

Lower eyelid surgery focuses on tightening skin and repositioning fat below the eye. Each procedure has a slightly different focus, depending on what is causing your under-eye concerns. This eyelid procedure also has minimal scarring, which we can hide to minimize visibility.

Recovery &

Blepharoplasty is a full procedure and can take about 1-2 weeks for the initial recovery period. In most cases, you can return home the same day as the surgery. However, it will be important to focus on resting for this initial period. Your surgeon will provide you with complete aftercare tips and instructions to help speed along your recovery. It can take several weeks or more for all the swelling to fully go down. But once it does, you will be able to see your full results. With a healthy lifestyle and good care, you can see your improvements last for years to come.
