Transform Your Look with Blepharoplasty in Nashville

The eyes are one of the most important facial features.

Eyes cue the world into how a person is feeling. Bright, well-rested eyes are a hallmark of youth. Aging eyes have a more tired appearance. It can even make a person look angry or sad when they are not. If you are tired of people asking why you look tired or upset, it may be time to visit Dr. Lucas Bryant for a blepharoplasty in Nashville.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin, muscle, and sometimes fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids. The primary goal is to address droopy or sagging eyelids, puffiness, and under-eye bags, which can result from aging, genetics, or other factors. Blepharoplasty can help restore a more youthful and refreshed look to the eyes, improve vision obstructed by excessive eyelid skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

Types of Blepharoplasty Procedures:

Dr. Bryant, a dual board-certified and fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon, has perfected innovative techniques for your blepharoplasty in Nashville.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

This surgery fixes heavy upper eyelids, addressing age-related crowding that creates a hooded eyelid effect. The procedure removes excess skin and fat and repositions muscle and fat as needed, resulting in well-rested, rejuvenated, youthful eyes.

The incision is discreetly concealed in the eye crease, leaving no visible marks once healed. This surgery can make you look 5 to 10 years younger and can be combined with lower eyelid surgery or a brow lift for enhanced results.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

A common procedure is known as the pinch eyelid surgery technique. This allows your surgeon to remove excess lower eyelid skin without touching the fat layer or muscles beneath it.

This is ideal for giving the eyes a much-need refresher with minimal tissue damage and a surprisingly fast recovery.

A Specialty Technique for Reconstructive Eyelid Surgery

Transconjunctival or Incisionless Blepharoplasty. This lower eyelid procedure is ideal for those with minimal skin excess or in reconstructive cases. It involves making an incision on the inside of the lower lid (conjunctiva) to access the fat, muscle layers, and upper cheek. Fat can be re-contoured or reduced as needed, improving appearance without any external incisions. The quick recovery time ensures minimal to no external scarring.

Transcutaneous Muscle Flap Blepharoplasty

This highly effective procedure combines skin and muscle release from the cheek, addressing "eye bags" and hollows under the eye. Repositioning and sculpting fat pads produces a rejuvenated lower eyelid and upper cheek contour.

This technique offers long-lasting results compared to repetitive filler injections or unstable fat injections. The outcome is refreshed and well-rested eyes, with imperceptible incisions after healing. Temporary dissolving sutures may be used to reduce swelling and provide support during the healing process, resulting in a pleasantly lifted, youthful appearance.

Fat transposition Eyelid Surgery

This eyelid surgery is performed in Nashville at Refine Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics. Instead of removing bags of fat under the eyes, creating a hollow, skeletonized appearance, the fat is moved (or “transposed”) into the hollow tear troughs.

This helps correct under-eye tear trough hollows, where dark circles form. At the same time, it improves heavy lower lids — all-in-one surgery. When filler and skincare treatments are not enough, an outpatient treatment including surgical fat transposition, may be a good option.

Did you know that raising droopy eyebrows can help heavy upper eyelids to look more youthful and toned?

Elevating the brows has the effect of tightening the upper eyelid skin. Dr. Bryant’s customized approach to brow lifting allows you to refresh your brow position with natural and pleasant results.

Many patients considering eyelid surgery in Nashville are often taken aback to discover that sagging brows contribute significantly to the drooping of upper eyelid skin. In a consultation with Dr. Bryant, he will thoroughly explore your options and assist you in determining the best procedure for you.

Non-Invasive Option What is AccuTite?

At Refine Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics, we are proud to be the 1st practice in Tennessee — and one of the first in the country — to offer AccuTite skin tightening for the eyelids and brows. The AccuTite procedure mimics the results of a blepharoplasty surgery or forehead lift without the need for incision or scars.

AccuTite is an excellent eyelid surgery alternative for patients that prefer a minimally invasive treatment. AccuTite relies on the same FDA-proven technology as FaceTite, just with a smaller wand to reach the tiny curves and contours of the upper lid, lower eyelid, and brows with ease. Best of all, there are no incisions or scars. It is often used to treat lower eye bags, festoons, jowls and other smaller trouble areas on the face.
