The eyes are more than just the window to the soul. They are also often the first area to show the signs of aging. Fine lines form around the corners while the eyelids begin to sag. Eyelid surgery, orblepharoplasty, may be the answer to help you look younger. If you’re considering blepharoplasty in Beaumont, you can trust Dr. Leo Lapuerta for the results.
When you talk to Dr. Lapuerta about blepharoplasty in Beaumont, TX, you’ll discuss whether you want the upper, lower, or both lids treated. He will help you decide what you need and choose the right option for your surgery. You can be placed under sedation, under deep sedation, or under general anesthesia.

Blepharoplasty in Beaumont with Dr. Lapuerta will be set up in an accredited surgical facility. The procedure takes between one and two hours, depending on whether you have one or both lids done. An incision is made where the lid naturally folds on top or along the lash line for the bottom lid. The surgeon removes the excess tissue and tightens the skin for a more alert appearance.
What to Expect in Recovery
Since this is an outpatient surgery, you will have to spend some time in recovery and then have someone drive you home. Most patients experience only mild discomfort, and recovery is usually fast, with results being noticeable as soon as the swelling goes down. You’ll be able to go back to work in a few days and return to full activity about two weeks post-op.
Benefits of Blepharoplasty in Beaumont
