Will an eyelid surgery get rid of crow’s feet?
No. Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is intended to improve the contours of the upper or lower eyelid. In upper eyelid surgery, redundant skin and potentially deeper tissue is removed to relieve the overhanging skin. In the lower eyelid surgery is used to remove eyelid bags and if needed the trough of the lower eyelid is filled in with autologous fat or fillers. Crow’s feet are a result of repetitive muscle contraction and skin aging. Therefore that is the treatment. The muscle activity is treated with Botox or Dysport and the skin is treated with a laser or chemical peel.
