There are some common misconceptions in the Dallas area about what a facelift can and can’t do. It probably has something to do with the fact that the procedure itself includes the word “face,” making many assume the surgery addresses the entire face. This often causes men and women to think that wrinkling around their eyes will also be taken care of.
Unfortunately, this is an incorrect assumption. However, all hope isn’t lost! Continue reading to learn more about what areas of the face a facelift addresses, and about your options for addressing wrinkling around the eyes.
What Areas of the Face Does a Facelift Correct?
A facelift performed by Dallas plastic surgeon, Dr. Bassichis is only designed to address the mid to lower face and addresses wrinkling and lost volume in these areas.
The surgery begins with Dr. Bassichis of Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery Center performing incisions in your hairline. The incision starts up above your ear, then goes around the back of your ear.
Through this incision, Dr. Bassichis has adequate access to address any facial wrinkling or lost volume you are experiencing in your mid to lower face. Wrinkles are moved, sunken cheeks are filled in, and patients are left with a more youthful facial appearance.
Additional Procedures to Make You Look More Youthful
Of course, as many Dallas residents know, the aging process doesn’t just affect your mid to lower face. As you age, it’s common to experience wrinkling around your eyes, especially underneath your eyes. But, there are a variety of cosmetic procedures available to address wrinkling around the eyes.
Getting Rid of Wrinkles Around Your Eyes
If you have wrinkling around your eyes, it’s likely that you won’t be satisfied with just a facelift. You’ll want your eye wrinkling to be addressed, too.
Thankfully, there are a variety of cosmetic options for addressing this exact issue. These include:
- Routine BOTOX® injections to reduce the appearance of wrinkling around the eyes, including crow’s feet
- Chemical peels and/or laser treatments to address wrinkling
- Specialized facial plastic surgery procedure to target eye wrinkles that don’t respond to BOTOX® injections or chemical peels
BOTOX® injections can be performed in our office by Dr. Bassichis, and other facial and laser treatments can be performed by our Licensed Aestheticians and Laser Technicians.
If your case of wrinkling around the eyes warrants a surgical solution, this surgery can be combined with other facial plastic surgeries, so you only have 1 surgical event.
