Eyelid Surgery Q&A

What is blepharoplasty?

Your face changes as you get older. Skin gets more delicate and begins to sag and form wrinkles. The skin around your eyes is particularly susceptible to signs of aging. Skin stretches and the muscles weaken, causing fat to collect around your eyelids.

Many people find these changes make their eyes look droopy and tired. But in severe cases, sagging skin can also affect your vision. Skin may reduce peripheral vision, or keep you from fully opening your eyes.

Blepharoplasty is a popular surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat to give your eyes a more awake, youthful appearance. It’s performed in an outpatient setting, which means you can go home the same day.

What can BOTOX Cosmetic do for me?

Before sagging eyelids set in, you might notice lines and wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes. If you’re bothered by the appearance of these moderate to severe wrinkles, BOTOX Cosmetic could be right for you.

BOTOX injections contain a purified toxin that targets muscles below the surface of your skin. Common wrinkles like forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet develop with repetitive facial expressions, but BOTOX relaxes the muscles to smooth away wrinkles. 

What are the benefits of Fraxel laser treatment?

The Fraxel laser system uses targeted laser energy that triggers collagen remodeling deep within skin to reverse common signs of aging. Precision lasers treat small amounts of tissue, leaving the surrounding skin intact for rapid healing.

In as little as one treatment session, you could achieve smoother, more even-toned skin. That means reduced wrinkles like crow’s feet and brow lines, and less noticeable age spots and sun damage.

What eye treatment is right for me?

Your cosmetic concerns and aesthetic goals are unique. That’s why the IC Laser Eye Care team takes the time to understand your needs before recommending an aesthetic treatment plan. The eyelid surgery or cosmetic treatment that’s right for you depends on your skin and your goals.

Fraxel treatments are completely noninvasive, making laser resurfacing a great option for people who want to look younger without more advanced cosmetic procedures. BOTOX addresses severe expression lines with a few small injections.

For severely drooping eyelids, blepharoplasty is an effective surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat. It can make eyes appear more alert, and even improve vision in some cases.
