Could Restylane improve my eye appearance? Or should I look at orbital rim implants?
Radiofrequency treatments such as Viora® are the current gold standard treatment for non surgical tightening of the eyelids, and can be done up to 1 week before or 2-3 weeks after a facial surgery.
Getting the drop on drooping with Botox, fillers and thermage
I try to lift the lateral eyebrow with botox and fillers. Radiofrequency treatments with thermage work very well to also elevate the brow and pull the skin away from your eye. I would avoid any brow lift surgery or even eyelid surgery as you likely don't have excessive skin but just drooping of the eyebrow due to ptosis and orbital fat pads that are small. These can be done before your surgery. Please see an expert for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer.
See oculoplastic specialist for eye shape
Restylane will not change the shape of the eyes. Canthoplasty and lower eyelid surgery can do that but it is not for everyone. Need personal consultation to determine if good candidate. See following link.
