PLEXR® Eyelid Lift vs Blepharoplasty surgery ?
Surgical blepharoplasty is excellent for correcting moderate to severe loose eyelid skin and puffy eyelids. It is still the “gold standard” for patients seeking blepharoplasty, with impressive results lasting more than 10 years, for a few weeks of downtime.
Soft surgery is a new innovative way of tightening loose skin and is an impressive alternative to surgery, allowing a more gentle correction of moderate loose skin. For eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) often 3-4 sessions may be required, which are performed every 6-8 weeks. Perfect for people who want a gradual, scar less correction without the risks of surgery.
