CAN PERMANENT MAKEUP AFFECT MY SURGERY RESULT?

permanent make upThe use of application of colored dye usually black or brown to the eyebrow’s upper and lower eyelids and the role of the upper and lower lips are common.

The answer to the above question is maybe. It all depends on where the tattooing is. And, how dark the pigment is. Also, the makeup technique put to use. The upper eyelid eyeliner may be affected by an upper lid blepharoplasty. It may pull this line up slightly onto the upper lid.

The ink fades over time and touchups may be required. There may be a distinction between semi and permanent makeup however ink is ink and will fade with time. A thorough and complete discussion of permanent makeup should be had with the surgeon prior to entertaining any facial cosmetic surgery that may impact this procedure.
