Eyelid Surgery in Plano, TX
The eyelids begin to sag and droop over time, or may even be a hereditary condition. This can cause an aged appearance and even result in problems with vision. With eyelid surgery at the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas, you can eliminate these unwanted effects of aging to restore youthfulness to the eyes. We welcome patients living in Plano, Frisco and Dallas, TX, and the surrounding areas.
What is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery, also referred to as blepharoplasty, is a surgical technique to improve the signs of aging in the eyelids. This is a suitable treatment for patients who would like to address sagging, puffiness, or obstructed vision that has occurred due to age-related and hereditary changes in the eyelids. Unfortunately, eyelid surgery cannot improve crow’s feet, sagging eyebrows, or other cosmetic concerns around the eyes. However, eyelid surgery can be combined with other facial procedures, including both surgical and non-surgical options to address these and other cosmetic concerns.

How Much Does Eyelid Surgery Cost in Plano, TX?
The cost of eyelid surgery can range from about $4,300 to about $7,500, depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. If you are considering eyelid surgery, we ask that you come in for a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. During this time, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that will include the exact cost of treatment. At the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas, we offer flexible financing options and accept all major credit cards to keep this treatment affordable and accessible.
How is Eyelid Surgery Performed?
During eyelid surgery, discreet incisions are made within the natural crease of the eyelids. Through these incisions, we are able to remove excess skin and fat in order to deliver the desired cosmetic results. For patients who are only addressing changes in the lower eyelids, we may perform a transconjunctival blepharoplasty. This technique involves a small incision in the lower eyelids, which results in the complete absence of any visible scarring. The average full eyelid surgery can vary from 1.5 to 3 hours, depending on the extent of treatment necessary.
What is Recovery like After Eyelid Surgery?
After your eyelid surgery, you may experience soreness, sensitivity, bruising, or blurred vision for a few weeks. These are common effects of eyelid surgery and will gradually fade as the body heals. During this time, we recommend that patients rest as much as possible to ensure that the body heals properly. As such, time off of work and other activities may be necessary. During your consultation, we will provide you with additional instructions regarding your recovery and what you can expect after your procedure.
