Are there any non-surgical alternatives to Eyelid surgery?
This really depends on an analysis of the eyes to the rest of the face and brow and in relation to what you wish to achieve. More complex enhancement will require surgical correction but if the problem is limited to a specific concern such then a medical alternative such as a filler, chemical peel, dermabrasion or skin laser may be best for you. The skin of the Eyelids is the thinnest skin in the body and so any treatment be it surgical or non surgical will need to be tailored and gentle.
The eyes are usually the first thing you notice about someone and as they often reveal the early signs of ageing, Mr Ahmad sees many men and women seeking treatment to improve the appearance of the eye area. On the upper lid, the issue is folding, creasing and hooding which obscures the natural shape of the eyelid, and on the lower lid, it is usually a case of bagging and pouching as the skin and muscles become more lax. Eyelid surgery, known as a blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that can tackle either the upper or lower lid or both, depending on the patient’s individual requirements. There are certain things that eyelid surgery can’t achieve, such as remove dark circles, eradicate crow’s feet around the eyes, or tackle a drooping brow, but Mr Ahmad will explain this all fully at the consultation. There are a number of alternative procedures he can offer aimed at treating these concerns.
