When you’re full of energy and excited about life, you want your facial expressions to express that passion. Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, rids your upper eyelids of excess skin and reduces the bagginess from lower eyelids. Dr. Scott Haydon
and the Austin Plastic Surgery Institute & Skin Care Clinic team understand how important it is for you to see the world clearly and for others to see the real you.
While eyelid surgery in our Austin, TX office is typically a cosmetic treatment, it can also improve sight in some patients who are dealing with sagging upper eyelids that impede their vision.
When To Consider Eyelid Surgery
The aging process causes the skin to gradually lose its elasticity. The loss of elasticity, partnered with the natural effects of gravity, causes the upper eyelids to accumulate excess skin. Many women find it difficult to put eye shadow on because of this. Lower eyelids often begin to sag, revealing a tired appearance.
If the sagging, drooping skin on your upper or lower eyelids is causing you to look older than you are or blocking your vision, it’s time to consider eyelid surgery. Dr. Haydon will meet with you personally during your initial consultation to talk about your goals and desired outcome. Eyelid surgery can restore the youthfulness you long for and help fight against genetics that may cause droopy eyelids much sooner than expected.
Benefits Of Eyelid Surgery
The physical benefits of eyelid surgery with Dr. Haydon will include the removal of excess skin. The surgery will open your eyes, giving you a brighter, awakened look that is more youthful. Eyelid surgery may also improve your line of vision if drooping skin is a hindrance to your sight.
Beyond the expected physical benefits, choosing Dr. Haydon as your Austin, TX plastic surgeon means your procedure will be performed in a safe and welcoming environment. Our team is highly skilled in walking you through the procedure beginning with your consultation through final results. When the treatment is complete, your confidence will be restored. It’s our goal to help you look as young and vibrant on the outside as you feel on the inside.

Eyelid Surgery Results
The results of upper eyelid surgery can last up to ten years, and lower eyelid surgery results typically last even longer. Once the procedure is complete, you’ll need several days to completely recover. While there’s little pain associated with the procedure, you may experience bruising or swelling. Most patients are back to their normal routine in 10 to 14 days, although you should follow your surgeon’s advice when it comes to your specific healing plan. Final results of eyelid surgery are generally revealed after two to three months.
Dr. Haydon can restore the youthfulness of your eyes and reestablish your confidence. It’s time to look as young as you feel. Schedule your consultation today.
“he exceeded my expectations”
Written onSeptember 2019
Dr Haydon and his staff are top shelf. I had made appointments with other doctors and decided on Dr. Haydon because of his bedside manner, the post op pictures, the 3d Vector Imagery, the fact that the surgical center was in the building was also a plus. Everything was fully explained and my he exceeded my expectations. Never did I feel pushed into anything, or ever too insecure to voice my thoughts and opinions. He and his staff make you feel like family even months after the surgery.
I can’t say enough about Dr Haydon, his staff, and the Skin Care Clinic that I still go to every 3-4 months.
