How long will eyelid surgery last?

Many of my Houston eyelid surgery patients will ask how long will eyelid surgery last? Upper eyelid surgery to remove excess skin will create a more rested, refreshed, and open eyed appearance. Although eyelid surgery does not halt the aging process, this is a semi-permanent change to the eyelids. After 7-10 years, one may notice more excess upper eyelid skin, lower eyelid bags returning, and further laxity in the eyelid skin. However, the eyelids will still look better than they did prior to surgery at that point.
