Navigating Eye Rejuvenation: Surgical or Non-Surgical Options

eyelid surgery Do you find yourself staring at tired eyes in the mirror? The choice between eyelid surgery and minimally invasive treatments like injectables can be overwhelming without a bit of guidance.

The experts at Austin Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery can help you weigh your options, ensuring you opt for the most effective method based on your unique needs.


Blepharoplasty, commonly known as an “eyelid lift,” offers a surgical solution to enhance the aesthetic of your eyes. The procedure often involves excising surplus skin, fat, or muscle from the eyelids.

This is particularly beneficial for individuals struggling with impaired vision due to sagging eyelids or those looking for a lasting remedy for eye puffiness. Typically lasting one to two hours, the procedure usually employs local anesthesia and offers a rejuvenated appearance lasting up to 15 years.

However, it’s essential to note that the surgery does require a period of recovery, which may include temporary swelling and bruising.

Minimally Invasive Methods

Alternatively, non-surgical interventions like BOTOXⓇ Cosmetic and dermal fillers present a less invasive path. These procedures are straightforward, involving brief sessions where fillers are injected around the eye area, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, tightening skin, and reducing puffiness.

While these treatments offer a speedy recovery, their results are temporary and usually last around three to six months, requiring periodic treatments for upkeep.
