Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
The final installment in our oculoplastics (eyelid) series is about cosmetic rejuvenation through oculoplastic procedures. The effects of aging are most noticeable on our faces, with skin losing elasticity and resulting in wrinkles and heaviness around the eyes.
Surgical procedures can be used to repair drooping of the upper and lower eyelids and to lift the brow. Both procedures will help improve your vision and give your face and eyes a refreshed appearance.
Non-surgical procedures help restore your facial features by smoothing out wrinkles, crow’s feet, and smile lines. Botox, which has gained popularity in recent years, is an injection that blocks impulses from the nerve to the facial muscle, relaxing the muscle activity and allowing the skin to appear smoother. Botox treatments only take a few minutes and can be repeated every few months for lasting results.
Most cosmetic procedures are performed as outpatient, meaning you can recover in the comfort of your own home. If you’re interested in learning more about cosmetic oculoplastic options, including Botox, contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Mark Kropinak, oculoplastics specialist.
