Eyelid surgery get rid of wrinkles?
Does anyone know if getting eyelid surgery gets rid of the crow's feet wrinkle lines to the side of your eye? Would an under-eyelid surgery do that? Anywho, I would like to know which is the best way to get rid of those pesky lines that creep up when you smile and now that I'm getting older, they stay there even when I'm not!!!

Those crow's feet wrinkle lines on the side of your eyes are best taken care of with botox. You don't want to pull that skin there too much because it can change the shape of your eye which is definitely not what most people are going for. Now if your wrinkles are extremely severe with deep creases, that would mean u have extra skin that perhaps could be pulled. only your surgeon could determine that but otherwise i would hold off and get botox instead which also acts as a preventative measure.

But will Botox get rid of the lines on the sides of my eyes that give me a hooded look. Will it lift up that skin? Because I need something to prop that skin up and I don't know if Botox will do that. I've never gotten it before so only a guess but it doesn't seem like that would be possible with just an injection. The flip side is I don't want surgery if that is going to open my eyes up so much it makes me look different I'm looking for more of a happy medium between the two. Sometimes don't you feel like our bodies are like cars? As soon as they get a little mileage on them we gotta plunk down all kinds of money here and there to keep them going.

If you want to get rid of wrinkles around the eyes, such as crow’s feet, then eyelid surgery is not a suitable treatment.If you’d like to get rid of crow’s feet, you may want to explore Botox injections instead.

You may want to try Botox, or Coolaser treatments, which is a laser skin resurfacing that helps with fine lines and wrinkles; especially crow's feet. You can search "coolaser" online and see before and after photos. I prefer to use Coolaser over other lasers because there is less downtime (for healing) and it really works wonders. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to help you.

Eyelid surgery does not get rid of crow’s feet lines. Eyelid surgery is performed to reduce overlapping skin in the upper eyelids and improve the appearance of puffy bags and excess skin under the eyes. Crow’s feet line occur when smiling or squinting and can be treated with Botox. Botox or Botulinum Toxin temporarily paralyzes the muscles (called the orbicularis oculi muscle) which is responsible for the formation of these lines. If the lines are present when you are not smiling, these are called static lines. Doctors routinely treat the lines around the eyes as well as wrinkles and sun damaged skin with the Mixto SX micro fractional CO2 laser. Other options for these static lines include chemical peels and Erbium laser.

When dealing with your eyes make sure that you have the ability to speak with a board certified surgeon before going under the knife. By doing so, you can maintain and ensure a successful surgery

Although the generic reply quoted above has some truth, board certified surgeons definitely make mistakes too. Simply being board certified does not guarantee a successful surgery. Eyelid surgery will not clear up crows feet. Fillers would probably be one's best bet.
