Look Younger and Energized
We communicate with the world through our eyes. What are your eyes telling about you? Are they saying you’re young, refreshed, and full of energy, or are they making you look tired, worn down, and older than you feel? With blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, Dr. Robert ‘Bo’ Brobst in Plano can rejuvenate your face, making you look more alert and full of life.
Enhance your most beautiful feature
Often an area of early aging, rejuvenation of the eyes can improve a tired appearance. Upper eyelid procedures focus on removing redundant skin and limiting fat. Ptosis, or drooping of eyelids and eyebrows, can be addressed at the same time. Lower eyelid treatment options include smoothing bags of protruding fat, camouflaging the tear trough, improving dark shadows, and conservatively removing excess skin. These procedures can help enhance the most beautiful facial feature.
Dr. Brobst is a facial plastic surgeon who is board certified and has a strong desire to help people in a setting that is kind and inviting. Because of his talent and passion for aesthetics, he is dedicated to furthering his education in plastic and reconstructive surgery by traversing the country to study under some of the most respected surgeons in the field. By booking a consultation for blepharoplasty in the Plano, McKinney, or Frisco region today, you can learn about the many treatments available to revitalize your eyes.
Blink away the Years
A well-rested, alert, and youthful appearance is the result of eyelid surgery. Vision impairment caused by drooping eyelids can be alleviated, and asymmetry in the eyelids can be corrected. Fewer than ten days of downtime is typical, and few patients experience significant pain or discomfort afterward. Fortunately, the effects of plastic surgery are usually permanent, so your new look will stay for years to come. Anyone who isn't completely satisfied with the way their eyes look might consider blepharoplasty. This may occur as a result of having too much skin, too much fat, or malposition of the eyelids. This procedure may remove years of a person's look and is just as effective for males as it is for women. Dr. Brobst is a highly skilled surgeon who can give you the blepharoplasty you want if you live in North Texas.

Eyelid surgery can be performed under local anesthesia, but occasionally sedation or general anesthesia is desired. Upper eyelids are improved through an incision that is hidden in the eyelid crease. This allows for improvement in skin redundancy and eyelid position (ptosis). Position alone can be improved with an internal eyelid incision. For improvement of the lower lids, both internal and external incisions are possible. External incisions are typically best to treat excess skin and fat and correct lower lid malposition/laxity. Internal incisions are best when a fat herniation is the sole problem. An internal incision blepharoplasty is frequently paired with laser resurfacing or chemical peels to optimize mild skin laxity and fine lines. Tear trough correction is performed by fat transposition or fat grafting as needed. Our technique focuses on precision, symmetry, and maximizing results without compromising functions such as dry eye or closing difficulties. Once both sides are completed, ointment and cool gel packs are applied. After awakening from anesthesia and confirming your comfort, you will be able to go home in the care of a responsible adult.
The Perfect Pair
The morning after the procedure, the eyes are checked to make sure healing is progressing as desired. A single suture is occasionally removed, and aftercare is reviewed. Swelling is normal and responds well to a cool compress, head elevation, and light activity. Pain is not part of the recovery. Lubrication is imperative, and a combination of drops and ointment is utilized. After 1 week, all sutures have been removed, and most bruising and swelling is gone from the face. Eye makeup can be worn 10 days after the procedure. With the exception of heavy lifting, normal activities can be restarted after 2 weeks. Unless the lower eyelid position was corrected, contact lens wear can also be restarted at this point. Patients flying in for their operation should make arrangements to stay in town for a week. Swelling continues to improve over the first month.
We will schedule your follow-up appointments to ensure that your healing is progressing the way it should. Dr. Brobst is here to answer any questions or concerns and make sure you stay looking and feeling your best. Schedule your consultation today to get to know Bo.
The overall appearance of your eye will improve. In addition, the size appears larger and more room for makeup is present. As for the actual position of the eyelids, this is not intentionally altered except when upper eyelid ptosis or laxity/malposition of the lower eyelid is corrected for during the procedure.
Lasers can tighten the skin slightly but do not actually remove excess eyelid skin as performed in a blepharoplasty. These procedures can be performed independently, but the results of each are complementary. In a similar manner, chemical peels are often used for the same effect as laser but may have some additional beneficial properties for patients.
