If the eyes are the window to the soul, eyelids can be the window to how tired or stressed a person feels. It should come as no surprise, then, that a recent survey by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery revealed eyelid rejuvenation treatments are exploding in popularity in the United States.
At Grossman | Capraro Plastic Surgery, our renowned surgeons provide a variety of eyelid rejuvenation treatments to help you look more alert, more vigorous, and less stressed. Read on to learn about the many procedures we offer to give your face a renewed, youthful look.
Why Are Eyelid Treatments so Popular?
According to a recent study by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, eyelid surgery is the second-most-popular facial plastic surgery procedure in the United States, behind only nose surgery.
One reason for this is the eyelids' ability to convey so much information at a glance. Because the skin around the eyes is so thin and delicate, it's easy for that information not to be what you want to present to the world. A person's eyelids can tell you if they're tired, stressed, or aged. Puffy bags or dark circles under the eyes can be powerful first impressions that affect professional, social, and romantic interactions.
In fact, the Journal of the American Medical Association also recently published a study that found people who've had upper eyelid surgery seem more likable and trustworthy, while people with lower eyelid surgery are more attractive.
Eyelid Rejuvenation Treatments
- Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty): This procedure is performed under general or local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. It can address sagging or wrinkled eyelid skin, excess skin around the eyes, and puffy pouches that make you look tired or aged. Our surgeons will make incisions in the natural creases above and below your eyelids and remove excess skin and fat. Your sutures will be removed 3-5 days after the procedure, contact lenses will be wearable after 7-10 days, and recovery should last 2-4 weeks in total.
- BOTOX® Cosmetic: With BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can attain younger-looking eyelids in as little as one 20-minute session. Daily actions such as squinting cause the muscles around your eyes to contract. Over time, these contractions create lines and wrinkles, including crow's feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles in the treatment area to prevent involuntary contractions without preventing conscious movements. Within days of treatment, the wrinkles will dissipate.
- Laser skin resurfacing: At Grossman | Capraro Plastic Surgery, we offer laser skin resurfacing with the powerful, advanced DOT Therapy Laser. The laser works by destroying in a controlled manner skin cells that have blemishes and imperfections while leaving healthy skin untouched. Then, your skin's natural healing processes take over in the treatment areas to rejuvenate them. When that's done, your skin will look dramatically younger and more refreshed.
