About eyelid surgery
The eyes are a unique and alluring aspect of the face, but sometimes an abundance of skin on top or around the eyes can create an unattractive look. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Younghoon Cho performs eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) for men to remove excess skin and lift the lower or upper eyelids to achieve a more youthful appearance. Countless patients receive eyelid surgery at Chiseled in Spring, TX to eliminate saggy eyelids, which leads to improved functionality and appealing contours. Whether upper, lower, or a combination of both, eyelid surgery can help create a softer, younger appearance and natural yet striking improvements. If you're interested in refreshing your eyes by removing excess skin, schedule a consultation with Dr. Cho today.
Eyelid Surgery Reviews
"Having experienced a medical condition that affected the appearance of my eyes, I felt the need to try and restore their appearance. I am so thrilled with what Dr. Cho achieved. With just the right amount of filler to the upper left eyelid, and perfectly placed, he has completely refreshed my look. He has impeccable qualifications but more importantly to me, he has a kind demeanor and a very gentle touch. Together with Rachel, his lovely assistant, they calm you right down and you honestly feel very little. Dr. Cho listens to you and understands your concerns and obviously understands subtlety really well. I am conservative with my appearance, less is usually more for me and Dr. Cho seems to understand what you need. I really appreciate that and his absolute mastery of fillers. A great front desk, a great personal assistant and a wonderful doctor. Thank you so much."- L.A. / Google / Nov 09, 2019
"Lip Lift Life-Changer. Houston, TX - My first three photos say it all. I only had to take a couple aspirin yesterday when I got home. Right now I'm on day 2 and experiencing very mild swelling and no bruising, and I'm keeping the stitches moist like they told me. Most of the stitches are invisible, dissolvable, and the ones you see will come out on day 7. The procedure was actually enjoyable. I was on a nice padded fully reclined procedure table and the nurses suitably pampered me with pillows, blankets, footies, gently covered my eyes and mouth with soft cloths, then asked what music I wanted to listen to. Then in walked Dr. Cho who I had just seen in the photo room for measurements, markings and a nice little pep talk. The local anesthetic was administered with extreme gentleness while one of the nurses talked to me and patted my legs. Within seconds I was numb and Dr. Cho began his work. All of us were talking, cracking jokes and soon it was over. When they said to open my eyes and take a look in the mirror, I had been having such a great time I wasn't ready to open my eyes. But when I did I was thrilled at what I saw and decided this needed to be shared on Real Self where I learned about the lip lift from others. Eventually, you'll get to see how well the scar healed. I'm just as anxious as anyone else reading this to find out. So stay tuned."- J. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2017
"54 Yr Old Did the Profound RF, Kybella, Botox and Silk for Tired Face with Fat Pocket Under Chin - Spring, TX - I am in my mid 50s and had a sunken tired look with a fat deposit under my chin.

I have also had Botox around the eyes and Silk on the lips in subsequent trips."- P. / RealSelf / Mar 09, 2017

Candidates for eyelid surgery
Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that has been performed for many years and continues to grow in popularity. During your private consultation, Dr. Cho will explain treatment options based on the cosmetic concerns you'd like to address. Generally, ideal candidates are men frustrated with excess, hanging skin on their upper eyelids, puffy skin below the bottom eyelids, or both. These skin irregularities can also impair one's vision, making it difficult to perform everyday activities. For a more awake and youthful appearance, eyelid surgery may be the right option for you.
Depending on the nature of the eyelid surgery, some form of anesthesia will be used. This surgery may be done on the top eyelid(s) by itself, on the bottom eyelid(s), or a combination of both upper and lower.
Upper eyelid surgery assists in diminishing lax skin that droops over the eye to create a more appealing eyelid appearance. The incision point is often placed along the lash line or crease to excise loose skin and fatty tissue.
Eyelid surgery on the lower lid is performed to reduce puffy and bulging skin underneath the lower eyelid. In most cases, an incision is made below the lash line to surgically remove tissue and fat, and the skin is subtly lifted to create a softer, flatter look.
after your procedure
Eyelid surgery can take up to two hours depending on whether we're treating both eyes or just one. After this outpatient surgery, you should set aside several days to recover and rest at home. Cold compresses can assist in reducing swelling, bruising, and discomfort. It's also important to adhere to all post-operative instructions provided by our office. The results from blepharoplasty can last many years, but it will not stop the natural aging process for men. To complement your surgical outcomes, we can also incorporate facial rejuvenation treatments, such as dermal fillers and lasers, to create a glowing appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are some other benefits of an eyelid lift?
Blepharoplasty not only helps to refresh your face, but it can also improve other aspects of your life. You may discover an improved field of vision once excess hanging skin from your upper eyelid is gone. It can also be much easier to apply eye makeup to a smooth upper lid. Eliminating fine lines, lax skin, dark circles, and puffy bags under your eyes can also make your eyes look fuller.
Will an eyelid lift fix wrinkles and Crow's feet?
Crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles might be better addressed with a brow lift or facelift because the results of blepharoplasty are confined to the eyelids alone. Blepharoplasty can be combined with a nonsurgical treatment like BOTOX, which combats wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead. An injectable filler may also be effective because it adds volume to hollow areas for a softer, smoother appearance. During your initial consultation, Dr. Cho will create a custom treatment plan to fit your needs and goals.
What about nonsurgical treatments instead of eye surgery?
Nonsurgical skin tightening and injectable wrinkle treatments (for example, BOTOX, JUVÉDERM, and Restylane) can provide mild improvements. However, if you have moderate to severe loose skin or would like to see long-lasting results, an eyelid lift is probably better than a nonsurgical treatment. When you've talked to Dr. Cho about your concerns and goals for your eyes, he can explain his suggestions for your personalized treatment plan. He may also suggest a combination of surgical and nonsurgical procedures for ideal results.
