As we continue to wear masks in public, people are becoming more focused on their visible features, especially the eyes. Eye procedures, such as Botox injections and brow lifts, are trending in the world of plastic surgery. Providers are also injecting more units of Botox to the eye area than usual as more patients request a bright-eyed look. Getting Botox injections around the eyes can lessen the appearance of crow’s feet and fine lines and wrinkles. Another noninvasive option, Botox brow lift, is a popular choice for those longing for a bright, wide-eyed appearance. Depending on the patient, Botox treatment will usually last anywhere from three to six months. Injectable fillers can also be used to fill in the tear troughs, helping alleviate the appearance of undereye bags and dark circles. For those seeking a more permanent solution, Dr. Wendel can perform a surgical eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) – either alone or combined with Botox. Eyelid lift surgery involves removing a small amount of skin from the eye for a more open, lifted look. Depending on your goals, Dr. Wendel may recommend an upper or lower blepharoplasty, or a combination. This procedure requires about a week of recovery time and is a bigger investment than Botox and filler treatment.
