Eyelid Surgery in Charleston

Blepharoplasty in Charleston, SC with H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery


Without a doubt, our eyes command attention as perhaps the most significant aspect of our appearance. Yet, they’re prone to showing signs of aging prematurely, with lines, wrinkles, sagging, and puffiness often taking root. While this feels like an unfair deal, eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can bring about a striking rejuvenation across the entire face, despite targeting only the upper face. This is why eyelid surgery has become one of our most popular procedures at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery in Mount Pleasant. 

Nonetheless, the change isn’t so pronounced that it immediately reveals you’ve had work done. Given the delicate nature of the eye area, choosing the right surgeon is crucial for ensuring safety and achieving excellent outcomes. At H/K/B, we have a deep understanding of the intricacies of the periorbital anatomy and are well-versed in employing the latest advancements in eyelid surgery techniques.

What Can I Expect During An Eyelid Surgery in Mt Pleasant?

Both upper and lower blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can be performed as outpatient procedures under local anesthesia and sedation at our fully accredited surgical facilities. Our highly qualified nurses provide attentive care throughout the process, ensuring your comfort and well-being. Certified in advanced cardiac life support, they are well-equipped to handle any emergency situation with the utmost professionalism. Additionally, we collaborate with advanced anesthesia providers to ensure a safe and comfortable experience for our patients.

During upper eyelid surgery, the incision typically starts within the natural crease at the inner corner of the eye and extends slightly beyond the outer corner towards the crow’s feet or laugh lines. This incision follows the natural curvature of the upper eyelid and is strategically placed to minimize visibility once healed. Through this incision, excess skin and fatty tissue are removed by the cosmetic surgeon, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

For lower eyelid surgery, the incision is usually concealed just below the lower lashes, allowing for the removal of excess skin, muscle, and fat to achieve a rejuvenated lower lid contour. Additionally, fat can be repositioned to eliminate puffiness or bulges, and in some cases, the underlying muscle may be tightened. For certain patients, a transconjunctival approach may be utilized, where the incision is made inside the lower eyelid, leaving no visible scar. Even when the incision is made below the lower lash line, any resulting scar is typically minimal and inconspicuous.

What Can Blepharoplasty Do For Me?

Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. If you have a drooping upper lid that hangs over your eyes and makes them less prominent, an upper eyelid lift can bring your eyes out of hiding. The eyelid surgery can also often smooth frown lines and other fine lines around the eyes.

If you have bags or puffiness under your eyes, a lower eyelid lift can smooth out the area and make your eyes look young again. “Tear troughs” – deep hollows under the eyes – can also be corrected.

Blepharoplasty is often performed in conjunction with a forehead/brow lift, facelift, or neck lift for an overall more youthful look.

How Long Does It Take To Recover From Eyelid Surgery in Charleston?

The recovery period following an upper or lower blepharoplasty, or a combined eyelid surgery, typically lasts 1-2 weeks. You may experience tearing, dryness, bruising, and swelling in your eyes. We’ll provide you with eye drops to facilitate healing and reduce the risk of infection, and any discomfort can be managed with medication.

Keeping your head elevated for the first few days can help minimize swelling, and sleeping on your back will ensure optimal comfort. It’s advisable to refrain from strenuous activities for a few weeks.

Rest assured, we’ll closely monitor your recovery progress and address any questions or concerns you may have. Since the aging process varies from person to person, the longevity of eyelid surgery outcomes can vary significantly. However, for most patients, the results typically last 5-9 years.
