Rejuvenate Your Appearance with Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) performed by Dr. Suzanne Yee at our Little Rock, AR, practice can lift sagging eyelids and reduce bags under the eyes, giving you a more youthful appearance. In addition to correcting cosmetic concerns, eyelid surgery is sometimes necessary for medical reasons. For example, excess skin around the eyes can cause vision impairment. Dr. Yee accepts CareCredit® payment plans to help you afford any out-of-pocket costs. 

Candidacy for Eyelid Surgery

Anyone considering eyelid surgery should be in good general health. Certain eye conditions can disqualify patients from undergoing blepharoplasty, including chronic dry eyes and glaucoma, so it is important to discuss your health history with Dr. Yee in detail. In general, eyelid surgery can be an excellent option for those wishing to correct:

  • Sagging upper eyelids
  • Puffy lower eyelids
  • Dark circles under the eyes
tired eye
If sagging eyelids are obstructing your vision or making you look older than you feel, you may be a candidate for blepharoplasty.

The Treatment Process

The technique used during your eyelid surgery will depend on a few factors, including the severity of the condition and your goals. Upper eyelid surgery is beneficial for those with sagging or excess skin above the eye. Lower blepharoplasty is used to address puffy lower eyelids.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Once you are comfortable, Dr. Yee will begin the procedure by creating a tiny incision in the natural crease of the upper eyelid. This strategic placement helps to reduce the appearance of post-surgical scars. Next, excess skin is trimmed away and the underlying muscles may be repositioned. Once the desired effect has been achieved, the remaining skin is lifted and sutured into place. With skill and precision, Dr. Yee can help patients achieve natural-looking rejuvenation. 

If you feel that your eyelids are causing you to look tired or aged beyond your years, Dr. Yee can help.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

To begin lower blepharoplasty, Dr. Yee creates a small incision just beneath the lower lash line. Next, excess fat, skin, and muscle are trimmed away. In some cases, pockets of fat may be redistributed to achieve a natural and more flattering look. Muscle laxity can also be addressed at this time. Once your eyelid surgery is complete, Dr. Yee closes the incision with sutures.  

Recovery and Results

Immediately following eyelid surgery, patients can expect some degree of discomfort, bruising, and swelling. It is normal for the eyelids to feel sore or tight as well. These side effects typically subside within one to two weeks. You may need a week to 10 days away from work. Patients can usually begin wearing makeup after a week. Pain and inflammation can be alleviated with over-the-counter medications and cold compresses.
