In recent years, we have seen a sharp increase in the use of injectable solutions like Botox and dermal fillers to reduce many of the common signs of aging. At the same time, interest in blepharoplasty, or eyelid rejuvenation surgery, has also increased exponentially. Many people who address cosmetic concerns with blepharoplasty state that the rejuvenation in the eye area significantly enhances their overall confidence in their appearance.
If you’re struggling to accept the signs of aging around your eyes, you may be considering injectables or eyelid rejuvenation surgery. In reality, this is not necessarily an either/or situation. For many of our patients, eyelid surgery and injectables are the ideal complements. Here, we discuss what can be achieved with each technique.
- Eliminate the appearance of puffy eyes by redistributing or removing fatty tissue.
- Smooth sagging skin beneath the eye.
- Restore a tighter appearance to the upper eyelid by removing sagging skin.
- Eliminate frown lines.
- Improve the elevation of brows that have begun to droop.
- Smooth crow’s feet at the outer corners of the eyes.
This injectable inhibits nerve impulses that cause muscle contractions around the eyes.
Dermal fillers can:
- Reduce the appearance of undereye bags.
- Reduce dark circles under the eyes.
- Improve fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
Fillers are injectables that reduce the appearance of cosmetic concerns by adding volume to superficial tissue.
Getting the Results You Want
Eyelid rejuvenation isn’t really about the eyelids; it’s about making the eyes themselves look more open, friendlier, younger. Sagging skin and drooping brows take away from the vibrancy of the face because it is through our eyes that our inner fire glows. Recognizing this as the goal, we can adequately address the tissue changes that are making the eyes appear tired and old. In many cases, it is the combination of injectable solutions and blepharoplasty that leads to the longest lasting and most dramatic outcome.
