Botox or Eyelid Surgery

Botox or Eyelid Surgery – Many women consider Botox injections or perhaps eye lift surgery when it comes to reducing wrinkles and fine lines for a more youthful appearance.

Botox or Eyelid Surgery

What Botox Can Accomplish

Botox presents a lot of benefits. Millions of women have selected Botox treatment and seen very good results. It’s effective for decreasing crow’s feet, frown lines between the eyebrows and wrinkles across the forehead. A quick outpatient procedure, Botox results generally last for about three to four months. If your main concern is wrinkles, Botox could be right for you. It’s a terrific way to obtain more youthful looking eyes if you have a big event coming up or if your schedule is simply too full for cosmetic surgery. Botox, however, is not a replacement for an eyelid lift – particularly for women who seek correction for problems like sagging skin.

When Eyelid Surgery Is the Better Option

While Botox has many benefits, sometimes the issues you’d to correct are best resolved with eyelid surgery lift. Botox relaxes facial or forehead muscles that result in wrinkles and lines while eyelid surgery actually removes extra or sagging skin and fat tissue that’s making you seem fatigued, stressed or simply less youthful than you’d prefer.

During eyelid surgery, your cosmetic surgeon removes sagging skin from the upper, lower or both eyelids. This results in a more uplifted, youthful looking eye area.
