Blepharoplasty (Upper & Lower Eye Lid)

Conveniently located to serve Austin, TX

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids.

Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both.

Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes. (American Society of Plastic Surgeons)

What eyelid surgery can treat

  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
  • Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid


“The year I was turning 60, I needed a “lift” no pun intended. I had never liked my profile and wanted to do a rhinoplasty. I was a previous patient of Dr. Wilder’s, and had asked him for years to do my upper eyelids, but he kept saying there was not enough skin to remove. He finally said there was enough to remove and I could do the upper blepharoplasty with my rhinoplasty. I could not be more pleased with my result! I am very conservative and did not want to have a “surgery look” and knew that Dr. Wilder was the right surgeon for me. I had seen his results, but the funny thing is that my mom and 3 siblings are all unaware that I did anything! It was big change for me, but I truly love that no one in my life that I didn’t choose to tell, knows I did anything! They all just think I am aging well.”
