Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)

Your eyes are often the first things people notice about you, and are an important part of your overall appearance. Over time, the upper eyelid skin loses its elasticity and stretches, the fat bulges, the eyelid muscles weaken, and the eyelids droop. This condition detracts from your overall appearance and can make you look older or tired. The droopiness can irritate your eyelashes or even touch your glasses. And, in more severe cases, this excess skin may interfere with your field of vision and activities such as driving.

What is Blepharoplasty?
Eyelid surgery, or   Blepharoplasty , is a procedure to remove this excess skin and bulging fat, and to tighten lax muscle of the upper eyelids. Blepharoplasty may restore a more youthful appearance and enhance your vision by the removal of the excessive skin. For an incredibly rejuvenated appearance, this may be just what your looking for.

Who is a Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
The best candidates are those who are healthy and well-motivated with realistic expectations. Some medical conditions may increase the risks in Blepharoplasty such as thyroid disease & patients who do not make sufficient tears to keep their eyes well lubricated.

During your initial consultation with English Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center, we will discuss your individual situation and any concerns you may have. After thoroughly discussing your expectations and the limitations of the procedure, an appropriate treatment will be customized just for you. For a consultation please call us at 501-227-9556.

Injectable wrinkle fillers can give you a more youthful look for a fraction of what a traditional facelift costs. Most will fill lines and wrinkles in less than 30 minutes with results that can last up to 6 months. Injectable wrinkle fillers, unlike BOTOX injections that relax the muscle under a wrinkle, fill the line, crease, or area with one of several different substances. As a result, trouble spots nearly disappear.
Wrinkle fillers can also be used as “volumizers,” plumping and lifting cheeks, jawlines, and temples; filling out thin lips, and plumping sagging hands.

The treatment is fast and easy. But not every wrinkle-filler is right for every type of wrinkle. The least risks and best results come from using the right one correctly. That’s why you should only have fillers injected by a specialist with ongoing, special training.
Here is a breakdown of a few dermal fillers and BOTOX available at the English Surgi-Spa.

Wrinkles
Many wrinkles originate from creases in the skin that are caused by making the same expression over and over. These “frown lines,” “crow’s feet,” and “smile lines” result from the contraction of muscles under the skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic improves these wrinkles by blocking the electrical impulse from reaching the area. As a result, the muscle becomes less active, the skin over the muscle relaxes, and the wrinkle gradually softens and frequently disappears.

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are used to improve wrinkles between the eyebrows, on the forehead and around the eyes. On occasion, other areas may also be treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Restylane is an injectable filler whose sole purpose is to help provide filling or plumping within the foundational layers of our skin known as dermis which makes up eighty to ninety percent of the skin’s thickness. Why is that necessary? With each decade of life lived, the foundational layers of our skin lose approximately 6% of their thickness. As age, sun exposure, genetics and life style choices slow down the skin’s ability to renew itself, we begin to see and feel our skin’s thickness diminish. This loss initially becomes obvious in the areas around the eyes, the mouth and the hands but its effects are ongoing in other areas as well. As the skin thins with age, wrinkling and the formation of facial lines of expression are not far behind. Restylane smooths away wrinkles and scars, enhances facial contours, and rejuvenates skin. Treatments are tailor-made and the results are instant!

Restylane Lift is a hyaluronic acid, as is Restylane, both of which are capable of the same hydrophilic properties of our own native dermal properties that attract and hold a significant amount of water within the superficial and deep layers of our skin. However, since the molecular weight and particle size of Restylane Lift is larger, it allow us to place it deeper within the confines of the reticular dermis (lower layer of the skin) and adjoining subcutaneous layers (layers just under the skin) without the rapid degradation and/or loss of results as seen when the smaller hyaluronic products are placed in these areas.

Restore fullness to lips
Restylane is also specially designed to create fuller lips. Whether you would like to have softer, fuller lips or just add a touch of volume in the lip border to give a more sculpted look.

Shaping facial contours
Belotero is specially designed to integrate into your skin and mold to your distinct facial contours. By adapting to the individuality of your skin, it softens lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth for smooth and natural results that are uniquely you. Belotero balance dermal filler has a unique manufacturing process that offers a soft, cohesive gel which is able to fill in your wrinkles for results that are even, smooth and immediate.
Restylane can give you a stronger, more defined chin and improve your profile. By replacing lost natural volume in the skin you can also create fuller cheeks, by lifting the skin over your cheekbones to restore shape to the upper part of your face.
The benefits of a Restylane treatment generally last for several months and can be maintained by repeated treatments once or twice a year.

How long does a Dermal Filler to work?
It’s immediate, but it can take a few days to “settle into” its final shape. It often looks even better after a day or two. Many patients are surprised at how much better they look right after their treatment.

What will I look like right after my filler treatment?
Most patients put their make-up on and go right back to normal activities. If you’ve remembered the no aspirin, Advil, Ibuprofen, Aleve (think ones that start with vowels) rule, then you should have very little bruising after your treatment provided your provider is gentle. A small amount of puffiness or mild swelling for a day or two is normal.

Do I need to come for repeat or maintenance treatments?
Yes. Dermal Fillers require maintenance a couple of times a year depending on which filler, the area injected, and your own particular body chemistry. You should be given an estimate on this at your initial consult.

Years ago, people seeking cosmetic surgery would bring pictures of celebrities to their doctor — and ask for “Angelina Jolie’s lips,” “Kate Beckinsale’s nose” or “Jennifer Aniston’s arms.”
But now people bring in their selfies — filtered through Instagram.
It’s a huge trend that we’re seeing more and more of.  Selfies are everywhere.  Go to a restaurant and people are stacked up behind the arm of a cell phone posing for a selfie. Instagram is flooded with the selfie crazed photos. It’s being socially engaged and definitely a part of our culture. People are bringing in pictures of themselves taken at a favorite angle or filtered, and saying they want to look like that all the time. The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery says there’s been a 33% bump in procedures driven by self-awareness from social media since 2013.
Just about anyone can look refreshed thanks to Photoshop—which many celebrities admit using in order to always look their best. But real life requires real solutions, and that’s where we come in.
At the English Surgi-Spa we have an arsenal of minimally invasive, lunch-break treatments for under $1,000. The results are outstanding, but friends and family often don’t know that any work was done. Some describe post treatment as looking really well-rested. Wrinkles or fine lines diminished and blemishes visibly improved. No more relying on the Amaro filter to soften those selfies when you have Restylane and Belotero fillers to reduce lines around the mouth and marionettes. And forehead lines or those pesky 11’s between the brows? BOTOX can take care of that. Maybe you need a little lip action? Plump that pucker with a filler, it’s amazing the immediate result it gives! Partnered with an Ultra Jessners Facial Peel and Microdermabrasion treatment and the result is that you look like you, but better. Amazingly better!
We’re taking selfies to a whole new level! To learn what’s right for you contact us today at 501-227-9556.
