Your eyes are what people first notice about you — for better or for worse. Bright, vibrant eyes can make you look young, energetic and alert. Dark under-eye circles, puffy eyelids and crow’s feet can make you appear tired or older than you really are. If you would like to brighten your eyes but are not sure which procedure is right for you, then Dr. Eric Pugash can help. He offers several cosmetic procedures, both surgical and nonsurgical, to help you rejuvenate the eye area. Here, he explains the uses and benefits of each treatment.
BOTOX® is used to treat forehead creases, frown lines and crow’s feet. Dr. Pugash injects BOTOX® into the target areas to temporarily weaken the muscles that create the lining. This smooths out the lines and wrinkles on the skin to create a refreshed, youthful appearance.
Soft Tissue Fillers
Soft tissue fillers temporarily smooth out wrinkles and creases by filling them in. Dr. Pugash uses injectable fillers made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body. These injectables can treat the lines and wrinkles around the eyes as well as fill in unsightly under-eye circles for a more youthful appearance. Soft tissue fillers can also be used to plump up thin lips and fill in marionette lines.
Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. Upper eyelid surgery removes excess fat and drooping skin. Your eyes will appear larger and brighter. Lower eyelid surgery also reduces excess skin and fat, and can minimize the appearance of unsightly under-eye circles and wrinkles for a more vibrant, well-rested appearance.
Brow lift treats the deep creases across the forehead and between the eyebrows that may cause an upset or angry appearance. The procedure also raises the eyebrows to a more youthful position. A brow lift can be performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery or facelift to enhance the eye area.
Depending on your needs and goals, facelift surgery can be performed along with brow lift and eyelid surgery to rejuvenate the lower face. Facelift surgery removes unneeded fat and loose skin around the cheeks and neck to restore the jawline and neck contour. The goal is a refreshed, rejuvenated look that will have your friends remarking on how great you look, but not aware you have had help from your plastic surgeon.
