If you have had eyelid surgery, you are likely enjoying a refreshed, youthful eye appearance. However, patients who seek out eyelid surgery often have other cosmetic concerns, such as aging facial skin. Sometimes, to achieve a complete result, you may need more than one treatment to address all of your aesthetic needs. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian may recommend procedures that can complement your surgical results, taking into account your specific features and goals.
AccuTite is an in-office procedure that is used to tighten the skin to create a radiant, youthful appearance. This treatment harnesses the power of radiofrequency energy to target areas of the face with precision. This heated energy destroys fat cells and promotes collagen production. It can improve the eyebrows, chin, and the area near the mouth.
Dermal fillers are designed to reduce the look of facial lines while restoring youthful plumpness. This is ideal in cases where the eye area has been rejuvenated with eyelid surgery but the rest of the face still exhibits signs of aging. Fillers can enhance the contours of the face, soften lines, plump up the lips, and even eliminate the shadow cast by the lower eyelids.
There are a variety of dermal fillers available today, ranging from synthetic materials to substances that naturally occur in the body and even fat from the patient’s own body.
Hyaluronic acid: Hyaluronic acid (HA) is available as a dermal filler, but you may have seen this substance in many skincare products, and for good reason. HA is a humectant, which is a substance that naturally retains moisture. It is found in the human body, specifically in the skin, eyes, and joint fluid. Over time, the body decreases its production of important substances, such as HA, which can lead to loss of hydration and plumpness. HA injections provide lasting results and can give the skin a youthful glow.
Fat grafting: Fat grafting involves harvesting fat from the patient’s body and injecting it into areas of the face that are volume depleted. Fat grafting to the face also provides long-lasting results and may be a better option for patients who do not want to introduce foreign substances into their bodies or are worried about potential allergic reactions to other types of filler material.
