Blepharoplasty; Will Crow's Feet Worsen?
Blepharoplasty should not worsen crow's feet.
By smoothing out wrinkles and excess skin around the lids with blepharoplasty, crow's feet lines may become more noticeable than before when the focus was on the eye lids.
A little Botox after your blepharoplasty will give your lateral eye skin nothing to crow about.
Good luck and be well.
Upper eyelid surgery can worsen the crows feet
When the upper eyelid skin encroaches on the eyelids, the brain sends a signal to the forehead to lift the eyebrows. When you have upper eyelid surgery, this skin is trimmed, There is a reduced incentive to lift the eyebrows, so the forehead relaxes. This causes a fall in the eyebrow position. Along with this, the brow tissue also falls into the crowsfeet area making the lines look worse. When this issue is significant, the solution is a forehead lift provided enough eyelid skin has been left below the eyebrow so the eyes can close once surgery is performed.
