Botox or Blepharoplasty? Dr. Roger J. Oldham of Bethesda can help you decide between an Injectable and Eyelid Lift Surgery

For aging patients Dr. Roger J. Oldham, Bethesda board certified plastic surgeon, offers a number of anti-aging facial rejuvenation and skin enhancement procedures and treatments.  Dr. Oldham has been seeing patients in Bethesda and the greater Washington D.C. area for over 25 years.  During this time, Dr. Oldham has performed countless blepharoplasty procedures for aging patients.  For this reason, and for the professionalism and courtesy of his staff at his Bethesda office, Dr. Oldham has been widely recognized by his patients and his physician peers.  For more than 20 years running, Dr. Oldham has been voted among Washington D.C.’s Top Plastic Surgeons.

For some patients, injectable fillers like Juvederm and Radiesse or even Botox can help combat signs of aging around the eyes, but for many, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) produces results unparalleled by non- and minimally-invasive in-office treatments.  For your convenience, Dr. Oldham hosts an online photo gallery which features pictures of patients before and after blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery) and before and after Botox injections.  Where Botox succeeds as a treatment is in its unique formula which not only smoothes present wrinkles with filler, but also discourages the future formation of wrinkles around the eyes.  Botox, as you can see in the photo gallery, can be particularly effective in treating “crow’s feet”—a term often used to describe the broad fan-like shape of wrinkles that extend from the outer crease of the eye.  Blepharoplasty, however, alleviates symptoms of aging in the lids themselves, alleviating patients from the obstruction of dropping lids.  While more invasive than Botox, blepharoplasty achieves significantly more noticeable results in one procedure than Botox can in several applications.
