About Eyelid Surgery
The eyes are one of the most important and prominent features of the face. However, wrinkles, excess skin, and bags can begin to form on our upper and lower eyelids as we age, making us look tired. If this is a concern that you're experiencing, then our team of trusted surgeons at The Face & Body Center would love to help restore your youthfulness and give you back years in your facial appearance. At our Flowood, MS practice, we offer eyelid surgery (medically known as a blepharoplasty) which can lift and tighten the sagging skin on the upper lids and reduce bags under the eyes. The result will be a more youthful, refreshed, and awake appearance that will last for years.
The best candidates for eyelid surgery:
- Have eyelid issues that cause them to look older
- Have vision problems caused by droopy eyelids
- Have droopy, downturned eyelids as a result of aging or genetics
- Have bags under the eyes
- Desire a more refreshed, rejuvenated appearance
- Desire a natural look
Eyelid Surgery Reviews
Did a beautiful job on my right eyebrow.
Excellent Experience - He is a top notch provider and his results are impeccable. Can't say enough good things about him. I went to him for Blepharoplasty surgery and although it's only been a week, I am very happy with the results so far.
I can see! My vision is immensely improved - After a stroke, my vision was being affected by dropping eyelids. Dr. Shelby assured me this could be remedied. My concern was having an "owl" effect after raising the lids. His procedure involved raising the eyebrows as well as well as the lids. I couldn't be more satisfied. My vision is immensely improved and my eyes look normal again. Dr. Brantley is WONDERFUL, so patient and reassuring! Plus he has a fabulous support team. Thank you, Dr. Brantley!
Dr. "Mani" - Here is my story, I am a 32 year old female. I have had four children. I have a petite body even after having my children. I have always been skinny and "flat chested" all of my life, I breastfed all four of my children and of course my breasts would look amazing during that time, I went from an A cup to a C cup but like most women after they stop breastfeeding, my breasts went right back to being flat as a board. I have always been picked on and made fun of for being skinny and flat chested since I was a teenager and I would always wear padded bra's for the illusion of bigger boobs, but when summer came along bikini season was a different story. I always hated going into Victoria's Secret or any type of Lingerie store because I would always leave with tears in my eyes and I have always felt even after having my children that I was a grown woman trapped inside of a teenagers body who never hit puberty. I have always wanted to have a breast augmentation and implants to achieve the look I've wanted to feel as beautiful on the outside as I do the inside. I always enjoyed the look I had when wearing my "big girl" bras but when it came to wearing a bikini or lingerie or just nude at all, I honestly was not happy. I did a lot of research and reading over the years on implants and have seen a lot of the "work" that has been done by plastic surgeons and looked through the before and after photos on The Face and Body Center's website, I was always impressed by Doctor ManiSundaram's pictures, they looked very natural and more of what I was looking for to be able to achieve the look I wanted on my own body. And having the experience of knowing a few of people who have had a breast augmentation and who they used and there answers to my questions, I made a appointment to meet with Dr. Mani back in October of 2016 to discuss my augmentation. He has the most wonderful bedside manner and made me feel very comfortable discussing my options and what I wanted to achieve. His nurse Courtney is also wonderful as well, they both sat with me and answered all of my questions as well as took the time to fully explain in detail my options and what he recommended would be best. I very much appreciated and was so happy with how Dr. Mani treated me. I scheduled my surgery for the end of October. The day of surgery my husband was with me and I was so nervous and yet excited at the same time, when I was called back to get ready for my pre-op I was laying on the hospital bed with my husband by my side. I was very much impressed with and very happy to see that Courtney came in to check on me and she stayed with me for awhile and talked with me about everything, she is so sweet and a awesome person. Dr. Mani came by as well to prepare me for surgery and make his markings. I also wanted to have some lyphomas removed from my arms and my back that where giving me trouble while I was in surgery as well. I can't say enough how wonderful Dr.Mani is and how warm and understanding he is as well as Courtney. I love Dr. Mani's personality and how he made me laugh and comfortable. After surgery I came home. Courtney called both me and my husband to check on me that afternoon and during my healing time any questions or concerns I had Courtney was always happy to answer them for me. When I would go for my check ups as well I always enjoyed being able to see Courtney and talk with her and Dr. Mani. It has been 7 months since I had my procedure and even after I first had it done, I am so happy and impressed with my new look and very impressed with how beautifully my scars have healed from not only my breast augmentation but from my lypoma removals on my arms and back. I'm definitely ready and looking forward to this summer. I highly recommend to anyone and everyone to see Dr. Mani.

What to Expect
Upper Eyelid Surgery: For upper eyelid surgery, your plastic surgeon will make the incision within the natural fold of the eyelid. The incision will be extended outward as much as possible in order to address the extraneous skin folds located on the outside of the upper lid. After the incision is carefully made, your surgeon will remove the excess fat and skin. Afterward, the incision will be closed with absorbable sutures that do not require removal.
Lower Eyelid Surgery: For lower eyelid surgery, the incision will be placed along the bottom of the lash line to allow your plastic surgeon access to remove the extraneous fat and tissue. A special technique is used for patients with puffy lower lids and good skin tone called transconjunctival blepharoplasty. Patients with dark undereye circles caused by a lack of fat in the area could benefit from injectables or fat fillers to add volume to the area.
Upper and Lower Combined: With some patients, both the lower and upper eyelids need to be addressed to correct all issues effectively. When both are combined, surgery can last around two hours.
Although eyelid surgery is usually an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility, it can also be performed as an in-office procedure with a milder form of general anesthesia called twilight sedation. After surgery, you can expect the eyelids to be bruised and swollen – this can be alleviated with ice packs, medicated eye ointments or eye drops, and by elevating the head. These symptoms should last a few days. Eyelid recovery is usually easy for most patients, and normal activities can be resumed within a week. You should expect natural-looking, younger, more refreshed eyelids after their surgery. In addition, scars shouldn’t be visible due to their placement.
