Augmenting Blepharoplasty: A 3D construct with hyaluronic acid
Aesthetic rejuvenation of the upper face has traditionally focused on surgical procedures, which redistribute and fixate tissues to counteract aging descent. The age related changes in the eyebrow, eyelid and mid-face continuum should be thought of as three-dimensional, with deflation and volume loss rather than just gravitational descent or ‘sagging’.
Unlike traditional surgical techniques, which alter volume proportions, replacing and augmenting what is lost in a minimally invasive fashion, is the latest trend in eyelid rejuvenation. Instead of simply excising and lifting the tissues as with eyelid surgery, the volume paradigm of Hyalu-Blepharoplasty restores a more youthful appearance in an area that conveys so many emotions. In this perspective, the use of hyaluronic acid fillers can be a powerful and predictable tool and subtle changes, when executed correctly, can be transformative.
