Tired of Dark Circles and Puffy Eyelids?
Your eyes tell your story to the world without saying a word. If your eyes are causing you to appear older, angry, stressed, or tired, there is something you can do about it. Enjoy a fresher outlook and regain a smooth, rested appearance with lower blepharoplasty.
Dual Board-certified Plano facial plastic surgeon Dr. Robert “Bo” Brobst has mastered the art of facial rejuvenation. He routinely performs lower blepharoplasty to help his patients in Dallas-Fort Worth to awaken tired, aged eyes and help them recapture the attractiveness and confidence they had in their younger years.
Blepharoplasty, or surgical eyelid rejuvenation, is an aesthetic procedure that tightens, smooths, and tones the eye area. It is sometimes called eye lift surgery or an eyelid lift and can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both.
Lower blepharoplasty, a procedure focused on refining the soft tissues around the eyes, can significantly enhance one's appearance, making a person look more youthful, smoother, and rested. This effective technique, which thousands of patients undergo annually, is instrumental in erasing dark shadows, reducing puffiness, and eliminating the bunching of excess skin or fat. With Lower Blepharoplasty Plano patients can experience a transformative effect, attaining fresher-looking eyes that lead to a substantial boost in confidence and can be life-changing.
You could be a prime candidate for lower blepharoplasty in Plano if you have prominent eye bags, dark shadows, or “jelly rolls” beneath your eyes. Ideal candidates have realistic expectations, are healthy, and do not smoke. Pregnancy and breastfeeding may delay the operation. Dr. Brobst may suggest combining upper and lower blepharoplasty if you also have heavy upper eyelids.
Dr. Brobst evaluates each patient individually, considering their medical history, skin quality, aesthetic concerns, and goals. It all starts with examining your eyelids and developing a personalized surgical plan.
If you and he agree a lower blepharoplasty is the best course of action, he may ask you to complete lab work and an eye exam. Candidates must also quit smoking and avoid medications that increase bleeding.
Lower blepharoplasty nearly always takes place under general anesthesia. IV sedation may be an option if the work is minor. Dr. Brobst makes tiny, discreet incisions either inside the eyelid or beneath the lower lash line. He removes or repositions any excessive tissue before closing the incisions and applying ointment. The operation lasts approximately 90 minutes.
Lower blepharoplasty is an outpatient operation, meaning you can return home the same day. Someone will need to drive you. Dr. Brobst may advise you to administer ointment and medicated eye drops. You can apply a cooling gel pack and sleep with your head elevated to alleviate swelling and bruising.
He removes any sutures within seven days. After a week or two, most patients look and feel well enough to return to work. Please avoid heavy lifting, strenuous exercise, and wearing contact lenses until cleared by your surgeon. Early surgical results are visible after two weeks, with full results at 6 to 12 months.
Even subtle changes to the eyes can have a big impact. That is why it is crucial to trust your results to no one but a board-certified facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Brobst, affectionately known as “Dr. Bo” to his patients, is not only board-certified. He has taken extra steps to complete fellowship training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, mentored by globally renowned plastic surgeons. Despite his impressive credentials and hundreds of five-star ratings, Dr. Brobst has a down-to-earth approach and treats each patient like a family member.

Lower blepharoplasty is generally considered to be a safe procedure. However, as it is a major cosmetic surgical procedure, it can have certain side effects, such as bruising, swelling, and bleeding at the incision site. These commonly subside during the recovery period.
Yes, the results of a lower blepharoplasty are permanent. The face will still undergo the normal aging process, and after about 10-15 years, patients may consider a second procedure to maintain their results.
The cost of lower blepharoplasty in Plano depends on the surgical technique and extent of correction required.
