Blepharoplasty is the procedure that removes excess fat and skin from the upper and or lower eyelids. Upper lid surgery is usually performed at the same time as the lower lid surgery, but either may be done as an isolated procedure. This surgery provides a rested and refreshed appearance.
Eyelid surgery will not remove asymmetries, wrinkles, or stop the aging process. Also, it will not raise eyebrows unless a brow or forehead lift is performed.
The eyebrow lift is designed to improve dropping eyebrows and achieve a more rested and youthful appearance. Drooping eyebrows can contribute to an aged appearance; the eyes seem smaller or more deeply set or they may appear tired or look angry all the time. The eyebrow lift can gently lift the brow to a position that is more pleasing and relieve the “aged look.” We strive to obtain a natural look, rather than a surprised appearance. A brow lift will not remove asymmetries, wrinkles, or stop the aging process.
