Our eyelids work overtime to protect our eyes from harmful environmental factors like sun, bright natural and artificial light, dust, bugs, wayward makeup, etc. It should come as no surprise that the eye area is typically the first to show signs of aging. Crow’s feet can appear as early as one’s late 20s or 30s and progress into sagging eyelids as the delicate skin loses elasticity beginning in one’s 40s. In 1997, Dr. John LeRoy invented the Band Aid Facelift to help patients who started to notice the signs of aging, but weren’t quite ready for a full facelift.
Since then, Dr. LeRoy has developed an extensive selection of other Band Aid mini plastic surgery procedures including Band Aid Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), liposuction, laser skin resurfacing, brow lift, and tummy tuck. Band Aid Blepharoplasty is an in-office procedure completed with gentle numbing. During the procedure, Dr. LeRoy carefully removes the pockets of fat and tightens the loose skin surrounding the eyes to yield a younger, more alert appearance. Band Aid Blepharoplasty produces more subtle-looking plastic surgery results.
Though the procedure is not as involved as its traditional predecessor, Band Aid Blepharoplasty produces noticeable results in facial rejuvenation patients seeking a little lift to their current appearance. Many Band Aid Blepharoplasty patients combine their procedure with Band Aid Laser Skin Resurfacing to rejuvenate the surrounding facial skin and minimize the appearance of sun damage or dark spots beginning to form. Additionally, some patients will complete their facial rejuvenation with the use of Latisse® eyelash treatment to showcase their refreshed eyes with longer, darker, and thicker lashes.
