Many men and women can benefit from blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery. Eye lift surgery creates a more alert, open look to the eyes, reducing bags below the eyes and lifting loose skin above the eyes. In addition to the cosmetic benefits of upper or lower eyelid surgery, many people also choose eyelid surgery to improve their ability to see, as excess skin around the eyes can actually impair vision in some cases.
Dr. Bob Basu is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in eyelid lift surgery. His experience, combined with his sensitive approach to each person’s needs, makes him one of the top plastic surgeons in the Houston area, helping men and women throughout Texas look and feel confident and refreshed.

Why Consider an Eyelid Lift?
Those who seem to always appear tired, lethargic or much older than they feel may be good candidates for an eyelid lift. Eyelid surgery can eliminate a variety of concerns, including:
- Excess or loose skin above the eye
- Sagging or puffy skin below the eye
- Drooping lower eyelids
If you’d like to give the tired appearance of your face a boost, an eyelid surgery can help to restore the youthful, alert appearance of your eyes, which can often help to make the entire face look brighter and refreshed.
People Always Say I Look Tired… What Can I Do?
Cosmetic eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can help you rejuvenate your appearance and get rid of the “tired” look.
How Much Does an Eyelid Lift Cost?
The cost of eyelid surgery in Houston varies depending on the surgeon and practice. Your total costs will include facility fees, the cost of anesthesia and your pre-op and post-op appointments. For those seeking eyelid surgery due to a medical concern such as vision impairment, some insurance plans may help to cover the costs associated with your procedure.
Your Eyelid Lift Options
Dr. Bob Basu will discuss your concerns with you and explain the details of eyelid lift cosmetic surgery. There are a number of options that you may want to consider combining with your eyelid lift to help you achieve the results you desire. These can include:
- Ethnic eyelid surgery: Dr. Basu also specializes in ethnic eyelid surgery, which is designed to address the unique cosmetic concerns for those of certain ethnic groups. He will take the time to evaluate your individual eye anatomy, skin characteristics and goals to give you the eyelid surgery outcome that you want.
- Face lift: Although a facelift does not address the skin around the eyes, when combined with an eyelid lift, face surgery can help to tighten the overall structure of the face, resulting in a smooth, younger-looking appearance.
Your Eyelid Lift Procedure
Depending on your individual needs and goals, eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper, lower or both lids. Dr. Basu will explain your options and the details of your procedure and recovery prior to surgery. During your eyelid lift, small incisions will be made following the natural lines of your eyelids, allowing Dr. Basu to remove any excess skin, fat or muscle tissue necessary to achieve your desired results.
Your Recovery & Results
After your eyelid lift, you may experience some swelling, redness or bruising near the eyes, but these symptoms typically diminish within the next 1 to 2 weeks. Giving your eyes plenty of rest in the days following your procedure can help to improve the healing process. Most men and women are able to return to their normal routines within 1 to 2 weeks following surgery.
