My mother has always had big circles under her eyes. Now that I am a woman in my forties I want to avoid a similar fate! If I get an eyelift, will it help with crows feet or just the bags under my eyes?

A lower lid blepharoplasty (eyelift surgery) addresses the fat pads of the lower lids that cause the appearance of bags underneath the eyes. However, this procedure does not properly address crow’s feet. A better option of the treatment of crow’s feet, include Botox. Other potential treatment options for crow’s feet include skin resurfacing (such as a fractionated laser resurfacing) and hydration with a good eye cream.
