Scars after Eyelid Surgery

A common question for my Houston eyelid surgery patients is where the scars will be placed when performing upper eyelid surgery or lower eyelid surgery for bags under the eyes. The scar with upper eyelid surgery will be placed in the crease of the upper eyelid and this scar will hide nicely in this region. The scar may need to be extended out laterally into a crow’s feet wrinkle if there is significant lateral hooding with excess skin. This portion of the scar may take a little longer than the portion of the scar that hides in the crease. But eventually, it will also hide nicely in this region.
