Your Options

When it comes to rejuvenating the eye area, Dr. Kerr or Dr. Blagg will develop a unique solution for your facial structure and aesthetic goals. Whether you're a woman or a man, these procedures can help you look younger and more attractive. Your options include:

  • Eyelid surgery: Many patients choose blepharoplasty alone to refresh their eye area. It can enhance the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both areas depending on your needs.
  • Brow lift: For men and women living in the Austin area, a brow lift opens up a welcoming expression by lifting a heavy brow and smoothing out horizontal forehead creases. This procedure is also referred to as a forehead lift.
  • Combined eyelid surgery and brow lift: By combining these procedures patients can erase years from their appearance and look refreshed.

When you visit one of our doctors for your consultation, he will ask you to describe the improvements you'd like to make. He strives to rejuvenate your face while keeping a natural look. For patients with less advanced signs of aging, Dr. Kerr or Dr. Blagg might recommend an injectable filler or BOTOX® Cosmetic in Austin to soften forehead creases or crow's feet.


What to Expect

Our doctors perform brow lift and eyelid surgery using general anesthesia in a hospital setting. They prefer to perform brow lift as a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure because it requires only tiny incisions and less recovery time. The incisions are concealed in the upper eyelid crease and inside the lower eyelid or along the lower lash line.

After your surgery, elevating your head as much as possible (even while sleeping) will minimize swelling and bruising. You may be able to return home soon after surgery, or you may choose to stay overnight at the hospital. You will likely be able to resume light activity within 7 to 10 days; but, you will need to avoid more strenuous activity, including vigorous exercise, for at least the first month.

Common Questions

I've heard that insurance can cover certain eye surgeries. Is this true?

It is true that eyelid surgery is occasionally covered by private insurance. However, this is a special circumstance. In order to qualify for insurance coverage, you must be able to prove that your sagging eyelids or loose skin interferes with your vision and requires surgical intervention to treat. This typically means obtaining a referral from your primary care doctor. Insurance does not cover procedures done for purely cosmetic purposes.

I wear contact lenses. What special precautions do I need to take after surgery?

You won't be able to wear your contacts for at least 1 week following eyelid surgery, and possibly longer. During your consultation, your doctor gives you a more accurate timeline for your anticipated recuperation. It's best to switch to glasses to allow your eyelids to heal undisturbed.

How can I maintain my results as long as possible?

Although the results of plastic surgery don't last forever, there are plenty of ways you can prolong your results and stave off the signs of aging for as long as possible. Our doctors' top recommendations include:

  • Sun protection: Good sun protection becomes doubly important after plastic surgery. In the immediate weeks after your blepharoplasty or brow lift, keeping your incisions out of the sun will ensure they heal to discreet scars. Incorporating regular sunscreen application into your usual skincare routine will help maintain your skin's resiliency and keep your eyes looking their best. Wearing sunglasses can also help prevent crow's feet and other crinkles that form around the eyes.
  • At-home skin care: A good at-home regimen is the foundation of healthy skin. Make sure you use a gentle cleanser at least once a day and completely remove all of your makeup each night. Keep your skin adequately moisturized, and consider using a product that features validated anti-aging ingredients such as retinol, peptides, and antioxidants.
  • A smoke-free lifestyle: Smoking has a negative impact on nearly every one of the body's tissues, including the skin. By restricting blood flow to the skin, smoking can lead to premature aging and a sallow, discolored appearance, effectively undoing your surgical results. If you smoke, make every effort to kick the habit at least a few months before surgery. If you don't smoke, be sure to keep it that way.
