Eyelid Surgery for Droopy Eyes

When I discuss droopy eyes with my Houston eyelid surgery patients this is typically referring to the upper eyelids. As we mature, we lose elasticity and collagen in our skin. The eyelid skin is the thinnest skin in the body and therefore demonstrates these features first in our 30’s. Upper eyelid surgery removes the excess eyelid skin and hooding of the upper eyelid. This is a straightforward procedure frequently done under light sedation or even local anesthesia only. It is a very tolerable surgery with little to no pain. Sutures are removed 1 week after surgery and many patients are up and mobile with sunglasses the following day after surgery.
