Eyelid Surgery in Huntersville

Blepharoplasty in Huntersville, NC with H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery


Our eyes are – arguably – the most important feature on our faces. Yet, the area is also usually the first to form lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and bags. It’s downright unfair! For this reason, eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is one of the most popular procedures at H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery in Huntersville, NC, for both men and women. When done with skill, eyelid surgery can make your entire face look younger even though the work has only been done on the upper part of the face. 

At the same time, the effect is not so obvious that people will automatically know you’ve had work done. Obviously, the eye area is delicate, so your choice of surgeon is important, both for safety and for an excellent result. At H/K/B, we understand the intricacies of the skin and muscles around the eyes and are well-versed in the latest techniques in eyelid surgery.

What Can I Expect During An Eyelid Surgery?

Both upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia and sedation at our fully accredited surgical facilities, where our highly qualified nurses will pamper you. Our nurses are certified in advanced cardiac life support, which ensures the highest level of supervision, evaluation, and care in the unlikely event of an emergency. We also work with advanced anesthesia providers.

For the upper eyelids, the incision typically begins within the natural crease of the eye’s inside corner and extends slightly beyond the outside corner into the crow’s feet or laugh lines. The incision line follows the natural contour of the upper eyelid and is camouflaged when healed. Through this incision, the cosmetic surgeon removes excess skin and fatty tissue so that the area is smoother and firmer.

For the lower eyelids, the incision is typically concealed just below the lower lashes where excess skin, muscle, and fat are removed to create a more youthful lower lid. The fat beneath the eye can also be redistributed to remove puffiness or bulges. In some patients, the underlying muscle will be tightened. Many times, a transconjunctival lower lid blepharoplasty is possible where the incision is inside the eyelid where there is no visible scar. Even if the incision is made below the lower lash line, however, the scar will not be visible.

What Can Blepharoplasty Do For Me?

Blepharoplasty in Charlotte, NC 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.

H/K/B: Health, Knowledge, Beauty

Your Trusted Partner For Transformation

The H/K/B Way is a collaborative effort between all of our physicians and staff. Together, we are committed to providing our patients with state-of-the-art procedures, best-in-class surgical technology, and the most advanced methods for ensuring not just optimal results, but also optimal recovery periods.

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

The recovery time from an upper or lower blepharoplasty (or combination eyelid surgery) is 1-2 weeks. Your eyes may tear and also feel dry, and there will be some bruising and swelling. We will give you eye drops to speed the healing process and prevent infection, and you can easily control any pain and discomfort with medication.

You can keep swelling to a minimum if you keep your head elevated for the first few days, and sleeping on your back will be most comfortable. Strenuous activities should be avoided for a few weeks.

Of course, we will monitor your progress and answer any questions you have during your recovery period. Everyone ages at a different rate, so the longevity of an eyelid surgery or lift varies a great deal. For most patients, the results last 5-9 years.
