Blepharoplasty – Non surgical options (fillers)
Recent advances have given rise to new blepharoplasty techniques, some of which can benefit patients without the need for surgery. Filler and other rejuvenation options can achieve comparable cosmetic outcomes without the risks inherent in more invasive procedures.
“Much of blepharoplasty success essentially revolves around choosing the right operation or procedure for the right patient. Patient selection is crucial here, as many blepharoplasty patients could do equally well, if not better, with a filler procedure, sparing them the risks of surgery,” says Robert Alan Goldberg, M.D., chief of orbital and ophthalmic plastic surgery and co-director of the Aesthetic Reconstructive Surgery Service at the University of California, Los Angeles’ Jules Stein Eye Institute.
