Extra skin over the eye can obstruct vision or perhaps just seem unsightly. An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is one of the most common procedures in plastic surgery. Many times a blepharoplasty has more to do with reversing the effects of someone’s genetics than age. Eyelid surgery can turn back the clock, open your eyes to a new you — or both.

And it’s not just for Hollywood. Dr. Rob Schmid, a plastic surgeon, says “I bet there’s 500 eyelid surgeries a year in Lubbock, TX. Absolutely.”  Dr. Schmid says he performs roughly 150 eyelid procedures a year in his office alone and there are other doctors in town who offer the surgery as well.
