Eyelid Lift

Nashville Location

As you enter your mid to late thirties, your eyes may start to exhibit signs of aging. The skin around your upper eyelids can loosen or become lax, resulting in drooping that may even impair your vision. The area beneath your eyes may appear puffy or tired, even with the use of high-end eye creams.

If these signs of aging are troubling you, consider consulting with Board Certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. DeLozier, for an eyelid lift. Blepharoplasty involves the tightening of the muscles around your lower eyelids and the removal of excess fat tissue and skin. The procedure will give your eyes a more open and youthful appearance, making you look alert, refreshed and rejuvenated.


About Eyelid Lift Cosmetic Surgery

To ensure your safety and comfort, your eyelid lift procedure will be performed under general anesthesia. At the DeLozier Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. DeLozier typically completes both upper and lower eyelid lift surgery within one hour. Incisions for the upper eyelids are typically hidden within the natural fold of the eyelid. Dr. DeLozier will remove any excess skin and fatty tissue during this process.

For the lower eyelid, an incision will be concealed beneath the lower lash line. Dr. DeLozier will tighten the surrounding muscles and remove any excess skin through this incision. In some cases, excess fat will be removed or redistributed to eliminate puffiness or bulging beneath the eye. As part of the lower eyelid surgery, a trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel will be performed to further tighten the skin and remove dark circles. You will prepare for the chemical peel by using a complimentary Retin-A product for two weeks prior to your surgery.

Your Individual Goals For Eyelid Lifts

Your goals for your eyelid lift will be discussed realistically with Dr. DeLozier. Blepharoplasty is often performed in conjunction with other facial surgeries. You may opt to improve both your upper and lower eyelid regions, or simply desire to address one area. Together you will decide which procedures he will perform in order to achieve your desired results.

Recovery From Eyelid Lift

Your stitches will be removed between five and seven days after your blepharoplasty procedure. Immediately following surgery, you will be expected to apply ointment, eye drops, and ice to your eye area. To reduce swelling, you must keep your head elevated for several days. Although patients feel very well after just a few days, it may take up to a week or two to feel comfortable appearing in public. There is little pain associated with this procedure, but patients should expect to be bruised around their eyes for at least the first week.

Blepharoplasty Results

Crows feet, wrinkles or sagging skin around your eyes will no longer give your age away. After your eyes have been rejuvenated, you can feel and look youthful again. You won’t have to worry about trying to conceal wrinkles or other such imperfections with heavy, harsh make-up and facial products. You won’t have to worry about drooping skin impairing your vision or feeling tired and aged. Over time, the results of your eyelid lift will keep you looking younger than if you’d never undergone the surgery.



Our consultation process is a journey of discovery — here’s what to expect when you begin yours at the DeLozier Cosmetic Surgery Center.

Your consultation is an opportunity to gather information and explore cosmetic surgery and non-surgical options. During your journey here, we encourage you to ask questions, examine possibilities, and discover what procedures can enhance and improve your appearance and boost your confidence.

There are several steps to your consult; the most important is meeting with Board Certified Dr. DeLozier to discuss your objectives. Dr. DeLozier will offer his professional opinion on your requested procedure and may suggest other options that work best for you and your desired goals. This is the perfect time to ask questions and educate yourself about your treatment. The entire consult is an hour long, and the fee is $75.00, which will be deducted from your procedure cost.


The first step is to meet with our Front Desk Coordinator. They will assist you with the patient intake process and inquire about your demographics, and medical history. After sharing the necessary information, you’ll be invited to have a seat in our relaxing waiting area.


After your initial intake session, a member of the DeLozier team will escort you to an examination room. You’ll have the opportunity to discuss what surgical or non-surgical procedures you are interested in and share your goals. Next, you’ll meet with Dr. DeLozier to learn about the treatments and explore which may match your goals. During this discovery session, you’ll receive his professional opinion and advice about what is best for your desires and have the opportunity to ask questions. There are also photo albums available with before and after images of each procedure so you can see real results.


Once you’ve completed your consult with Dr. DeLozier, you’ll meet with our Patient Care Coordinator, Jennifer Moore. She’ll discuss the cost of the procedure and the financing options for your surgery. Jennifer will also assist with scheduling; if you have a particular date in mind, she’ll work to accommodate your schedule. She is your go-to contact at the clinic if you are still in the information-gathering stage or have questions.
