What is an Eyelid Lift?
As the skin ages, it loses elasticity, resulting in excess skin on the upper and lower eyelids. This sagging skin can both impair vision and result in eyes that appear tired. Patients concerned about the tired appearance of their eyes can schedule a facial surgery consultation for an eyelid lift (also known as blepharoplasty) with the experienced Dr. Reo Pugao at SkinSational MedSpa in El Paso, TX. Eyelid surgery refreshes the appearance of the eyes by removing excess fat, skin, and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids, resulting in eyes that look youthful, alert, and rejuvenated. Dr. Reo Pugao generously offers free facial surgery consultations to patients at SkinSational MedSpa looking to enhance the appearance of their eyes. Contact our friendly staff today to schedule your consultation at our med spa in El Paso, TX.
How is the Eyelid Lift Performed?
Ideal candidates for blepharoplasty may have noticeable bags under their eyes, excess or loose skin on their upper eyelids, or drooping eyelids. During the free consultation, Dr. Reo Pugao can help patients set up realistic expectations regarding what kind of results surgery can accomplish, how much the procedure should cost, and what the recovery period will look like. Eyelid surgery is typically completed in 1 – 2 hours as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia and can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or a combination of both. Incisions to remove excess skin and tissue around the eye are made where they will be least noticeable when healed. Following the procedure, you will have bruising and swelling, as well as some tearing, burning, or dryness in your eyes.

Eyelid lift FAQs
Will I have scars from an eyelid lift?
Dr. Pugao creates small incisions whenever possible to minimize scarring. Of course, no cosmetic surgery is scar-free. Our office can provide detailed information about what to expect after blepharoplasty and how to take care of the affected area so that scars heal as quickly and as invisibly as possible. No one should be able to tell you've had work done.
Is an eyelid lift painful?
Eyelid surgery is performed using general anesthesia, so there should be no discomfort during the actual procedure. Afterward, you should expect some swelling and irritation that can be alleviated with medication. All of our patients at SkinSational MedSpa say that any side effects of eyelid lift surgery are well worth the youthful results.
How long do results last?
An eyelid lift is considered long-lasting but cannot stop future signs of aging or damage from UV rays. We recommend avoiding excess sun exposure and moisturizing each day to maintain the health of your skin. If age does cause future sagging, patients in El Paso, TX, are more than welcome to schedule follow-up treatments as needed.
