Understanding the details of upper facial cosmetic procedures is the key to getting the look you want. To reverse the signs of aging, a first cosmetic procedure is likely to be around the eyes. The eyes are often the first thing people see about your face and they are a big part of your appearance. So, when signs of aging show up around the eyes, people tend to act more readily.
An eyelid lift removes, redistributes and tightens the muscles around the eye restoring a youthful look. However, if you are seeking to remove crow’s feet around the eyes on a lasting basis, it’s important to know how to do that. An educated patient will know that crow’s feet or wrinkles on the outside of the eyes appear due to the repeated use of the eyelid muscles. Even with an eyelid lift, you will still be using those muscles, so eventually, some lines will reappear if nothing is done.
This is one reason why an eyelid lift is frequently combined with the ongoing use of injectables like Botox Cosmetic™, which smooths out facial lines in the upper face. Knowing the right procedure or combination of procedures to attain the look you want is important to ensure you have a great experience with cosmetic surgery. Start by asking questions.
