Eyelid Surgery in Knoxville

Blepharoplasty in Knoxville, TN with H/K/B Cosmetic Surgery


Our eyes are, without a doubt, the most critical aspect of our faces. However, this area is often the first to develop wrinkles, lines, sagging skin, and puffiness—which seems quite unfair! Consequently, eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, remains one of the most sought-after procedures at H/K/B for both genders. When performed expertly, this surgery can rejuvenate your entire facial appearance by targeting just the upper face.

Moreover, the results are subtle enough that it’s not immediately apparent you’ve undergone a procedure. Given the sensitivity of the eye region, choosing a skilled surgeon is crucial for both safety and achieving outstanding outcomes. At H/K/B, we are experts in the complexities of the eye’s surrounding skin and muscles and will employ the most advanced eyelid surgery techniques.

What Can I Expect During An Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgeries, including both upper and lower blepharoplasty, are generally performed as outpatient procedures under local anesthesia and sedation at our fully accredited medical facilities. Here, our highly trained nurses, who are certified in advanced cardiac life support, will care for you, providing the highest standard of monitoring, assessment, and intervention in the rare case of an emergency. We also collaborate with top-tier anesthesia professionals.

For upper eyelid surgery in Knoxville, the incision usually starts at the natural crease of the inner eye corner and may extend just past the outer corner, blending into the lines of crow’s feet or smile lines. This incision line traces the natural shape of the upper eyelid and becomes nearly invisible once healed. Through this cut, the surgeon removes excess skin and fat, resulting in a smoother, more taut appearance.

For the lower eyelids, the incision is generally hidden right beneath the lower eyelashes. Excess skin, muscle, and fat are excised to give the lower eyelid a more youthful look. Additionally, fat may be repositioned to alleviate under-eye puffiness or bulges. In certain cases, the underlying muscle is also tightened. Often, a transconjunctival approach is used for the lower lid, where the incision is made inside the eyelid, leaving no visible scar. Even when the incision is just below the lower lashes, the resulting scar typically remains concealed.

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.

Any pain or discomfort can be effectively managed with medication.

To reduce swelling, it is advisable to keep your head raised, especially during the first few days, and lying on your back will prove most comfortable. It is best to refrain from vigorous activities for several weeks.
