Procedures: Brow lift, Lower Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) + Laser Resurfacing.
Treatment: These concerns were addressed with a brow lift and lower eyelid surgery. Additionally laser resurfacing to the eye area helped diminish wrinkles. Lower eyelid surgery was performed to reduce the fullness beneath her eyes.
History: This 49-year-old patient came to us with concerns regarding her aging face and a “tired” appearance in the eye area. She was also concerned with lines around her eyes and the area beneath her eyes.
Aesthetic eyelid surgery is performed on adults of all ages. Some people have eyelid surgery to correct problems that are a result of aging, while others have inherited traits that cause them to seek treatment as early as their 20s or 30s. Laser skin resurfacing has greatly enhanced the aesthetic plastic surgeon’s ability to rejuvenate the upper and lower eyelid areas, plus the difficult-to-treat “crow’s-feet” wrinkles. Many patients have laser treatments without undergoing any additional surgical procedures at the same time and are happy with the results. Laser treatments are also frequently done in conjunction with eyelid surgery to further smooth the lids. Often the most dramatic improvement in crow’s-feet wrinkles can be achieved by a combination of laser resurfacing and a browlift.
