Eyelid Lift: Non-Surgical or Surgical?
A non-surgical blepharoplasty involves the use of injectable fillers to revitalize the eye area. The procedure treats different signs of aging around the eyes, including:
- Fine lines
- Dark circles
- Under-eye bags
Additionally, a non-surgical eyelid lift does not require any incisions, and it does not result in any scarring. A non-surgical blepharoplasty patient receives injectable treatments into different areas of the face, and no anesthesia is required. There is also minimal downtime after a non-surgical blepharoplasty, and a patient can often resume their everyday activities within 24 hours of treatment.
In contrast to a non-surgical eyelid lift, a surgical blepharoplasty is more extensive. Blepharoplasty surgery can be completed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, and it requires incisions into the eyelid region.
Patients typically require up to 14 days to recover from a blepharoplasty surgery. Yet, the results of an eyelid lift surgery generally last years after treatment.
When it comes to surgical and non-surgical blepharoplasty in Los Angeles, Dr. Azizzadeh is available to assist patients in any way possible. Dr. Azizzadeh understands that it can be difficult to decide between surgical and non-surgical eyelid lift procedures. Therefore, Dr. Azizzadeh conducts a thorough patient evaluation, then offers a custom treatment recommendation. This allows Dr. Azizzadeh to determine if a patient is eligible for eyelid lift surgery, a non-surgical eyelid lift, or both. It also enables a patient to learn about both types of eyelid lifts and make an informed decision regarding treatment.
Treatment Options for Non-Surgical Eyelid Lift
Common non-surgical blepharoplasty treatments include:
- Restylane: This injectable filler consists of hyaluronic acid, which helps keep the skin hydrated. It is used to treat furrows, wrinkles, and other visible signs of aging in the eyes and face.
- Juvederm: This FDA-approved injectable filler delivers facial rejuvenation results that last six months or longer. It also contains Lidocaine, a local anesthetic that reduces or eliminates pain when Juvederm is injected into the skin.
- Sculptra: This injectable filler stimulates the growth of collagen, a protein that supports the skin’s structure. It restores fullness in the eyes and face.
Along with these eyelid lift treatments, Dr. Azizzadeh may recommend a fat grafting procedure, which involves transferring fat from the abdomen, flanks, and other parts of the body to the face. With fat grafting, patients can address hollowness around the eyes and sagging eyelids.
