Eyelid surgery – also known by its scientific name blepharoplasty – is a common cosmetic procedure that can be performed on your upper or lower eyelids (or both) to improve the appearance of your eyes as well as alleviate functional problems brought on by aging.
Eyelid surgery can be used to treat the following:
Sagging skin on the upper eyelid, which can impair vision
Puffiness in the eyelids brought on by fatty deposits
With eyelid surgery we can reduce the bagginess of your eyelids, remove excess skin or fat, and eliminate wrinkles and folds. This can do wonders for your appearance since the eyes are often the most striking feature of our face. Our NuBody eyelid procedure can be performed without invasive surgery, using mouth or IV sedation and local anesthesia as needed rather than general anesthesia. Even better, it can be combined with our NuBodyLift facelift and other facial rejuvenation options.
Contact us to schedule a consultation for your eyelid surgery with our experienced board-certified plastic surgeon.
If you are in relatively good health and have realistic expectations about the results of your procedure, you are a good candidate for eyelid surgery. Our double board-certified plastic surgeon has over 20 years of experience in the Nashville area, particularly with facial rejuvenation. If you have unsightly bags under the eyes, excess fatty deposits on the upper and.or lower lids, and loose/saggy skin around your eyes, you can greatly benefit from eyelid surgery to take years off your appearance.
If you have concerns about the appearance of your eyes, or if the functionality of your lids is impaired by excessive drooping, your next step is to schedule a personal consultation with our plastic surgeon so that we can discuss your concerns and aesthetic goals with you and develop a treatment plan.

A less-invasive option than a brow lift, injectables are used to temporarily eliminate crow's feet and frown lines. Facial fillers can also be injected to fill in the folds around nose and mouth, or increase volume in the lips.
A brow lift, also referred to as forehead lift, is a surgical procedure to reduce the horizontal wrinkle lines across the forehead as well as the vertical frown lines on the bridge of the nose between the eyes.
We use fat extracted from areas of your body where you don’t want it and inject it as a natural filler into areas of your face that need firming up. Works well on cheeks and the lines around your nose and mouth.
