Dermal filler injections and wrinkle relaxing solutions can go a long way to restore a smoother look to the area around your eyes. However, while cosmetic injections are great for some ageing eye concerns, including crow’s feet and tear troughs, sometimes eyelid lift surgery is needed to get rid of puffy, sagging eyelid skin.
Not only do the results of eyelid surgery last longer than cosmetic and anti-wrinkle injections but they are also more noticeable, and rejuvenating compared to anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injections. It’s all about combining treatments to get the best facial rejuvenation results for the individual patient.
Combining eyelid surgery and eye area injectables (Anti-Wrinkle Solutions and Dermal Fillers or Tear Trough Fillers) often gets better results than stand-alone procedures.
Cosmetic injections CAN help remedy many signs of aging eyelids. However, once the skin has become heavy, puffy or saggy to the point the eyelashes or pupils are quite obscured by the eyelid skin, only a blepharoplasty will tend to get the results most people want for eyelid rejuvenation.
With that in mind, what are some signs of aging that indicate that you may need eyelid lift surgery?
