Do I Need a Brow Lift or Blepharoplasty?

Woman with hand on face You want to look as refreshed and youthful as you feel. Are you bothered by forehead lines, sagging brows or droopy, baggy eyelids?  Fortunately, cosmetic eyelid and brow procedures can treat unwanted sagging and help your vibrant personality shine through. Here are some options to consider.

What is a Brow Lift?

brow lift combats the aging process by elevating and tightening the skin of the forehead and raising sagging eyebrows. Using the small incision endoscopic method, Dr. Stern can smooth your forehead, permanently reduce the frown lines between your brows, tighten your upper lids and raise sagging brows, creating a natural, more youthful and refreshed look.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on the area surrounding your eyes. Not only can it improve the appearance of your eyelids, but in some cases, it may also improve your field of vision. Where a brow lift elevates the upper eyelids indirectly by raising the forehead and eyebrows, blepharoplasty, also known as an “eyelid lift”, focuses directly on the eyelids themselves.

This procedure can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both. Our practice offers laser blepharoplasty to achieve rejuvenation of the eyelids without incisions or sutures. The laser device can remove the bags below the eyes and tighten the skin to remove stubborn wrinkles.

Ideal Candidates for Each Procedure

If you have a heavy brow, then a brow lift is likely the best option for you. This procedure has the added benefits of smoothing out forehead wrinkles and helping to open up the eye area.

However, if droopy excess skin of the upper lids and bags of the lower lids are your only concerns, then laser eyelid surgery might be the perfect match.  If you have sagging brows as well as eyelid drooping or bags, these procedures can be combined to achieve the most comprehensive results.  They are often recommended alongside other facial procedures and skin treatments.
