Case Study: Eyelid Surgery Before & After Photographs

In this case study, you can observe how much difference eyelid surgery and Erbium laser resurfacing can make when it comes to hooded upper eyelids and lower eyelid wrinkles. Dr Lanzer executes this procedure regularly, so you will find other before and after photographs with similar results. Of course, results may vary from patient to patient, so these photos are just an example for patients considering having this procedure.

Do I Need to Combine Various Procedures to Get Better Results?

Combining procedures is the best way to achieve an all-round result in most cases. Living in Australia, we are exposed to some intense climate conditions. The Aussie sun can cause havoc to our skin texture and complexion as we age. Laser resurfacing is a way to turn back the clock and reduce the visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, as well as unevenness and skin laxity. It can also be used to treat smaller areas such as above the lip and under the eyes. A lower lid blepharoplasty may not be enough to reduce heaviness under the eyes, which is why it is commonly paired with laser resurfacing.

Of course, the results of any procedure will vary from patient to patient. It is also important to note that any asymmetry prior to the procedure may more than likely remain post procedure.

How Much Difference Can I Expect After Eyelid Surgery and Laser Treatment?

Patients must consider that results are different for everybody, even though most patient will notice quite a difference after having the procedure. Of course, certain patients will find the differences more profound than others.

Why Can One Eye Have More Wrinkles Than the Other Before a Procedure?

There will always be one side which has a deeper crease or more heaviness; this can be commonly associated with the preferred side you sleep on. Say, you like to sleep on your right side, you may find that you have a deeper crease along your nasal labial fold or more wrinkling around the eyes.

You will have an in-depth consultation prior to your procedure, whereby Dr Lanzer will view and assess you. He will also highlight any noticeable differences he sees in relation to the outcome you will achieve. It is important for you as a patient to be aware of any asymmetries, because often until we have a procedure done, we do not notice things like this.

Is a Combination of Erbium Laser and Blepharoplasty the Solution for Me?

To determine if a combination of Erbium laser and blepharoplasty is the best solution, you must be evaluated by Dr Daniel Lanzer first. Some patients only require one of the treatments to obtain the results they want, while other patients need both. Therefore, it is advised to speak to Dr Lanzer during a consultation.
