For many women and men, some of the earliest signs of aging develop around the eyes. Delicate eyelid tissues become thin and start to wrinkle and sag. Fat pockets develop and create puffiness. As an experienced plastic surgeon with specialized training in facial aesthetics, Dr. Sean Hill helps patients look rested and more youthful with eyelid surgery in Frisco, TX.
Am I a candidate for eyelid surgery?
Candidates for eyelid surgery may be adults of almost every age. Concerns are often due to the natural aging process or heredity, and commonly include:
- Lax, drooping skin on the upper eyelids
- Puffy bags under the eyes
- Pockets of fat around the eyes
- Obscured peripheral vision
At the private consultation, Dr. Hill discusses the reasons for seeking eyelid surgery. He will determine whether the patient needs eyelid surgery, a brow lift, or a combination of the 2 procedures to attain the desired improvements.

What happens during eyelid surgery?
Dr. Hill performs eyelid surgery as an outpatient procedure using local anesthetic with sedation or general anesthetic. The upper eyelid incision is hidden along the natural crease. The lower eyelid incision is placed inside the lower eyelid or along the lower lash line. Incisions are closed with fine sutures that are removed in approximately 5 to 7 days.
What is recovery like after eyelid surgery?
After surgery, swelling and bruising develop over the first few days and then gradually fade. Applying ice packs and keeping the head elevated helps minimize these side effects. Patients usually can return to non-strenuous jobs and light activity within 3 to 5 days depending on the extent of the surgery.
