People are fed up with tired looking eyes. And for good reason! It’s annoying when people constantly ask if you look tired. With an eyelift surgery, your eyes appear wider and younger. In fact, blepharoplasty has risen in popularity over the years, leaving many patients happy with the results of their surgery. Though this procedure has increased in popularity, so have the misconceptions surrounding the procedure. Below, we’ll break down some of the eyelift misconceptions and try to right the course.
Instant Wrinkle Remover
Many people think that having an eyelift reduces the appearances of wrinkles. Unfortunately, only injections and dermal fillers help correct the appearance of crow’s feet and wrinkles in the corners of your eyes. If you want wrinkles removed, we recommend making an appointment with our nurse injector, Kimber. Her years of experience will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your face. However, we can combine an eyelift with any of our offered fillers to give you a more youthful facial appearance.
It’s the Same as a Brow Lift
Despite your eyebrows and your eyes being located close together on your face doesn’t mean the two procedures are similar. With a brow lift, your eye brow is surgically lifted to elevate the eye brows. It does nothing for the shape or rejuvenation of your eyelids. If you want to improve visible signs of aging on your forehead, that’s when you’ll need a brow lift. For any other reason, you’ll want to turn to an eye lift. However, we can perform the procedures at the same time to improve your overall facial appearance.
Everyone Sees the Scar
If your surgeon does a good job, you shouldn’t notice a scar. Whether you opt for an upper eyelift or lower eyelift, your surgeon should easily hide the scar near your eyes. Remember, it’s important to let swelling decrease before you judge the overall results of your eyelift surgery. Typically, you can’t see the scar after a few weeks. If you feel like the appearance of the scar is still there after that time, we have options to reduce the appearance of a scar. However, the vast majority of patients rarely see a scar after proper healing.
Dark Circles and Bags Completely Disappear
Unfortunately, while eyelift surgery provides a more youthful look, it doesn’t completely remove dark circles and bags entirely. While we aim to significantly decrease their appearance, they sometimes still persist. The reasons vary from person to person, but it typically is because of genetics. Just like fillers help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet, some skin care products help reduce the appearance of under eye bags and dark circles.
