A new trend has surfaced that involves combining laser resurfacing treatments with blepharoplasty to provide patients with optimal anti-aging results. This powerful cosmetic surgery combo will leave patients with a balanced and rejuvenated facial appearance.
Younger Eyes with Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty, also called an eyelid lift, can improve the appearance of your eyes and create an overall younger and brighter look. As we age, the tone and shape of our eyelids can loosen and sag. Heredity and sun exposure can also contribute to this process. The resulting excess, puffy or lax skin can make you appear more tired or older than you actually are. Depending on your needs, Dr. Taban will either perform an upper blepharoplasty, to remove excess skin on the upper eyelid, a lower blepharoplasty, to combat under eye bags or hollowness, or both upper and lower blepharoplasty procedures. After a blepharoplasty with Dr. Taban, your eyes will appear refreshed and rejuvenated.
Younger Skin with Skin Resurfacing
The goal of skin resurfacing is to improve the texture and appearance of the skin by using laser technology to exfoliate the skin’s top layers. With the help of a laser treatment, patients can battle the effects of sun damage by treating facial lines, wrinkles, and dark spots simultaneously. The new skin is more even in color, with a smoother texture.
An Age Fighting Duo
To provide his patients with optimal rejuvenation results, Dr. Taban often recommends combining blepharoplasty with laser resurfacing treatments. First, Dr. Taban will perform the blepharoplasty to lift dropping eyelids or correct under eye bags and hollows. Next, the patient can receive a skin resurfacing treatment either with a laser or chemical peel to to treat wrinkles around the eyes. Combing the eyelift with skin resurfacing truly provides stunning results and can take years off of a person’s face.
Typically the recovery time for a blepharoplasty is extremely quick, with most patients returning to their normal daily activities in a very short period of time following the procedure. Skin resurfacing either with a laser or chemical peel can be done in the same day, with recovery time varying, depending on the strength of the laser treatment.
During that time, it is not advised you wear makeup. You should also follow Dr. Taban’s post care instructions carefully.
