Will Eyelid Surgery Smooth Wrinkles?

Posted in Eyelid Surgery

Due to the delicate nature of the skin around the eyes, some of the most visible signs of aging occur around the eyes. You may have heard of the revolutionary new cosmetic treatment called eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, that can help lift and tighten sagging eyelids while creating a softer, more youthful look. But can this procedure smooth wrinkles?

At Livingston Plastic Surgery, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher K, Livingston knows how to correct common problems patients deal with when it comes to aging. Read on if you are interested in learning about how Dr. Livingston uses eyelid surgery to help eliminate wrinkles around the eyes.

How Eyelid Surgery Can Smooth Wrinkles?

Eyelid surgery can help make improvements to the contours of the upper and lower eyelids by the careful removal of loose, overhanging skin. When this excess skin is removed, the results create a smooth appearance and, in some cases, improved visibility. Surgery done to the lower eyelids is designed to remove puffy under eye bags.

Dr. Livingston incorporates his excellent operative skills and years of experience with state-of-the-art techniques to perform his eyelid surgery. With his technique, the procedure is nearly scar-free and can address a number of cosmetic issues including wrinkles, bags beneath the eyes, excess fat deposits in the upper eyelids, and improved visibility.

Are You A Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

Drooping or sagging skin around the eyes is the result of factors such as age, genetics, stress, and gravity. It is not uncommon for the delicate skin around the eyes to stretch as collagen and elastin production decreases with age. Eyelid surgery is a practical way to improve the overall appearance of the eye and take years off of your appearance.

Blepharoplasty is a popular procedure amongst men and women from ages ranging in their 40s to their 70s. During your consultation, Dr. Livingston will provide options based on the conditions that need to be corrected and your specific aesthetic goals. Ideal candidates for a blepharoplasty struggle with puffy eyes and sagging, wrinkled eyelid skin. After a careful examination, Dr. Livingston will let you know if you’re healthy enough for the procedure and which treatment is right for you. Dr. Livingston may also recommend combining this surgery with a brow lift or non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers.
