In addition to traditional plastic surgery procedures like a cheek lift or brow lift, there are many new types of plastic surgery currently available. Upper eyelid surgery and liquid facelift are two such examples of new procedures.
Upper eyelid surgery can be done for either functional or cosmetic reasons. As we age, it is common in some people for their upper eyelid to start descending over their eyeball. When this affects their everyday vision, upper eyelid surgery becomes necessary. In the procedure, the surgeon first makes an incision in the upper eyelid. The surgeon then removes or repositions the skin, fat, or muscles in the eyelid so that it sits at a higher resting position. Upper eyelid surgery can also be done for cosmetic reasons, such as addressing chronic puffiness of the upper eyelids. Contact our Los Angeles upper eyelid surgery expert for more information.
A liquid facelift is a non-surgical method for achieving the effects of a traditional facelift. Instead of undergoing surgery, the doctor injects dermal fillers and Botox into the face in order to restore facial volume and to smooth out wrinkles.
