As a facial plastic surgeon, I know how important it is to achieve the best possible results for my patients. That's why I'm excited to tell you about a treatment that can enhance the results of blepharoplasty: fractional ablative laser resurfacing with the Pixel laser.

At Profile Aesthetic, we offer a range of surgical and non-surgical treatments to help you transform your profile. One of our most popular procedures is blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift or eyelid rejuvenation. This procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids to create a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

While blepharoplasty can produce excellent results on its own, combining it with laser resurfacing can take the outcome to the next level. Fractional ablative laser resurfacing with Pixel, a part of the Harmony XL Pro laser from Alma, provides a more complete facial rejuvenation. It can improve the texture and tone of the skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles.

What is blepharoplasty?

Before we dive into the details of how laser resurfacing can enhance the results of blepharoplasty, let's take a closer look at what the procedure involves.

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both. During the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions in the natural creases of the eyelids to remove excess skin and fat. They will then carefully reposition the remaining tissue to create a smoother, more youthful appearance.

The procedure can be performed under local anaesthesia with conscious sedation if required, depending on the extent of the surgery and the patient's preferences.

How can laser resurfacing enhance the results of blepharoplasty?

Laser resurfacing with Pixel can be performed before or after blepharoplasty, depending on the patient's needs. When performed before blepharoplasty, it can improve the texture and tone of the skin, making it more pliable and easier to work with during surgery. When performed after blepharoplasty, it can help to smooth out any remaining wrinkles or unevenness in the skin.

Pixel laser resurfacing works by creating tiny, controlled injuries in the skin, which stimulate the body's natural healing response. The laser penetrates deep into the skin, targeting the dermis to stimulate collagen production and promote new skin cell growth. This leads to smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking skin.

Answers to some common questions

How much does peri-orbital rejuvenation or blepharoplasty cost in the UK?

Blepharoplasty costs can vary depending on the specific procedure and the surgeon performing it. At Profile Aesthetic, we offer customised treatment plans based on each patient's individual needs and goals. Please contact us for a personalised quote.

What is a good age for peri-orbital rejuvenation or blepharoplasty?

The most appropriate age for blepharoplasty can vary depending on the individual and there is no “ideal” age - it’s highly individual. Generally, it is recommended for patients who are experiencing signs of ageing around the eyes, such as sagging skin or puffiness. It is important to consult with a qualified surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Can peri-orbital rejuvenation or blepharoplasty fix hooded eyes?

Yes, blepharoplasty can help address hooded eyes by removing excess skin and fat from the eyelids, resulting in a more open and youthful-looking eye area. Hooded eyes are one of the most common indications for blepharoplasty.

Will I look younger after peri-orbital rejuvenation or blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty can certainly make the eyes look more alert, awake, and youthful, but the extent of the results can vary depending on the individual. It is important to have realistic expectations and to understand that the results may not be permanent.

Will I look different after peri-orbital rejuvenation or blepharoplasty?

Yes, blepharoplasty can significantly improve the appearance of the eyes, resulting in a more rested and refreshed look. However, the goal of the procedure is to enhance the natural features of the face, rather than to create a completely different look.

What are alternatives to peri-orbital rejuvenation surgery or blepharoplasty?

For patients who may not be good candidates for blepharoplasty, or who are looking for non-surgical alternatives, there are various options available, such as Pixel laser alone, or in combination with injectables, other laser treatments and skin tightening procedures. At Profile Aesthetic, we offer a range of minimally invasive treatments that can help to address concerns related to the eyes and lower eyelid bags. Please contact us to learn more.
