How long does eyelid surgery last?

Many of my Houston eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty patients will ask how long does eyelid surgery last? Whether you are having upper eyelid surgery or lower eyelid bags surgery, it is important to understand the healing process and what you are looking to achieve. Eyelid bags do not typically grow back after lower eyelid surgery but the skin will continue to mature and become crepe and wrinkly. This goes for upper eyelids after upper blepharoplasty as well. Usually eyelid surgery will last 5-10 years depending on the age of the patient when it was performed, the severity of the eyelids, and what type of surgery was performed.
