I think I need upper and lower lid blepharoplasty. I have large fat pads under my eyes that I would like take out. My upper lid is so hidden that I don’t bother using eye shadow any more. When the upper lid is operated on, does that help the crow’s feet at all? Or would I need to get another procedure?
Really good question. In my experience the crow’s feet are not modified to any appreciable extent with upper lid blepharoplasty. Crow’s feet are best treated with a combination of muscle relaxants, like Botox or Dysport, and a procedure to tighten the skin such as, chemical peel or laser resurfacing. Excess upper or lower eyelid skin does not cause crow’s feet.
