Eyelid Surgery Dallas

Your eyes are the most noticeable feature of your face. Attractive, alert eyes make you appear young and healthy. On the other hand, drooping eyelids and puffy undereye bags can make you look old and tired, even when you feel young and energetic.

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, brightens and refreshes your eyes to give your face a younger, more alert appearance. The procedure can also address vision problems when sagging upper eyelids limit your range of view.

Dr. Yash Avashia has specialized training and extensive experience performing cosmetic and reconstructive facial surgery. Additionally, he deeply appreciates the delicate aspects of facial anatomy. Dr. Yash applies his surgical skills, aesthetic sense, and in-depth medical knowledge to produce outstanding, long-lasting results.

What Is an Eyelid Lift?

Eyelid surgery elevates droopy or baggy eyelids that can make you look old and tired. On the upper eyelids, the procedure removes the excess skin that causes sagging. For the lower eyelids, the surgery tightens and lifts the skin and eliminates fat bulges that create prominent undereye bags. The effect makes you look younger, brighter, more attractive, and alert. Patients often opt for double eyelid surgery, which is upper and lower blepharoplasty performed in the same procedure.

Am I a Good Candidate for an Eyelid Lift?

Determining whether you are a good candidate for an eyelid lift requires a comprehensive evaluation by a qualified plastic surgeon. Blepharoplasty is a popular cosmetic procedure aimed at your appearance by removing excess skin, fat, and muscle, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed look. Here are some factors to consider when assessing your candidacy.

The primary reasons for undergoing an eyelid lift are drooping upper eyelids, undereye bags, puffiness, and wrinkles around the eyes. You might be a good candidate if you struggle with any of these issues and have realistic expectations about the procedural outcome.

Good overall health is crucial for any elective surgery. Dr. Yash will assess your medical history, current medications, and any health conditions to ensure you can safely undergo the procedure.

While there is no specific age limit, most candidates for blepharoplasty are in their mid-30s to 60s, as these age groups typically experience the most visible signs of aging around the eyes.

Dr. Yash will examine your eyelid structure to determine the extent of the correction needed and tailor the procedure accordingly.

An eyelid lift can significantly enhance your appearance, but it is essential to have realistic expectations about the results. It will not change your fundamental facial structure or stop the aging process.

The blepharoplasty recovery period varies from person to person, but it generally involves some downtime and aftercare. Being willing to follow post-operative instructions is crucial for optimal healing.

Schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Yash to determine if you are a good candidate. He will assess your unique situation, address any concerns, and guide you in making an informed decision about the procedure. Remember, individual suitability for surgery can vary, so a personalized assessment is essential.

Am I a Good Candidate for an Eyelid Lift or Brow Lift?

If you’re bothered by the signs of aging in your upper face, such as lines and creases in your forehead, sagging eyebrows, droopy eyelids, or bags under your eyes, you may be a good candidate for an eyelid lift or forehead lift. The best candidates are in good health, don’t smoke, and have realistic expectations for the improvements the procedures can make. 

The best way to find out if you are a suitable candidate for an eyelid lift or brow lift is to meet personally with Dr. Yash in a confidential consultation at our office. During this one-on-one meeting, Dr. Yash will evaluate your facial features and ask questions to understand your goals for improving your appearance. He will also review your medical history. Based on his observations and the information you share in the consultation, he will advise you on the best approach to getting the look you want.

What Can I Expect Before, During, and After My Eyelid Lift?


Dr. Yash is a partner in the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute and will perform your surgery in the Institute’s state-of-the-art surgery center. The Institute is the top facility for aesthetic surgery in Dallas and among the best in the country. You will arrive on surgery day, check in, and meet with Dr. Yash and your anesthesia provider. You will then receive general anesthesia and return to the operating room.


In an upper eyelid lift procedure, Dr. Yash will make incisions along your upper eyelids’ natural creases, where the scars will barely be noticeable after you heal. He uses these incisions to remove excess skin and smooth the eyelids. If the upper eyelids are heavy or puffy with excess fat, he will excise it during the procedure. Then, Dr. Yash will carefully close the incisions with fine sutures. Often, he injects fractionated fat or nano-fat in the infra-brow upper eyelid region to provide a natural volumization to the aged upper eyelid. Upper eyelid surgery usually takes 30 minutes to an hour.

Lower eyelid surgery, also known as undereye surgery, requires incisions either inside the eyelids to remove bags under the eyes or just under the lower eyelash if a drooping lower eyelid needs correction. Dr. Yash removes excess fat that create prominent undereye bags.

To lift sagging lower eyelids, Dr. Yash removes excess skin and fat. As with upper eyelid surgery, he may inject fractionated fat or nano-fat in the infraorbital rim to provide a natural volumization and blending of the lower lid-crease junction. Midface volume augmentation with fat grafting can further improve the lower eyelid tear-trough deformity. Lower eyelid surgery typically takes 30 minutes to an hour.


An eyelid lift is an outpatient procedure. After your surgery, Dr. Yash’s medical team will move you to a recovery area for observation. Once you are alert after anesthesia, a friend or family member can drive you home. Dr. Yash will provide you with a complete list of post-operative instructions and will be available if you have any immediate questions or issues.

What Can I Expect During My Eyelid Lift Recovery?

During your eyelid lift recovery, it is essential to follow your post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth healing process. Here’s what you can generally expect.

You may experience some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort around the eyes. Cold compresses and prescribed pain medications can help alleviate these symptoms.

Plan to take it easy for the first few days after the surgery. Avoid strenuous activities, bending over, or lifting heavy objects.

Dr. Yash typically removes non-dissolvable sutures within the first week after the procedure.

While individual recovery times may vary, most patients can return to work and resume light activities within one to two weeks. However, it may take several weeks for all swelling and bruising to subside.

Refrain from wearing contact lenses, using makeup, or rubbing your eyes during the initial recovery phase.

Protect your eyes from direct sunlight and wear sunglasses outdoors to shield them from UV rays.

The results of an eyelid lift may take a few months to become fully apparent. Be patient and follow up with Dr. Yash as scheduled to monitor your progress.

By following Dr. Yash’s guidelines, taking care of your eyes, and giving yourself ample time to heal, you can expect to enjoy the benefits of a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance after your eyelid lift.
