They say that the eyes are the window to the soul. If that’s the case, then you may want to keep your eyes and the surrounding areas as youthful as possible. When it comes to rejuvenating the upper areas of the face, there are two main procedures to do so: the brow lift and the blepharoplasty. Below, we’ll take a look at the benefits of these procedures to help you decide if they are right for you.
The Brow Lift
The brow lift procedure is performed with the main goal of rejuvenating the brow line. Over time, the eyebrows can begin to sag, contributing to an aged or weathered appearance. If you’ve begun to experience this, you may also notice that you look more tired or angry when your face is at a resting position. All of these characteristics come down to the positioning of the eyebrows. A brow lift can rejuvenate the appearance by restoring the brows to a more youthful position. With this treatment, you can look more alert and attentive.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, focuses on rejuvenating the eyes through the eyelids. It may come as a surprise that your eyelids age just like the rest of the face, but it’s true! The eyelids often begin to droop over time, causing you to look tired or unhappy. In severe cases, this process can even interfere with your vision. Fortunately, eyelid surgery can restore youthfulness to the eyes with a discreet and subtle surgery. Blepharoplasty trims the excess skin from the eyelids so that they rest at a more youthful position. This procedure can also address bags under the eyes to help you look more well-rested.
Combining a Brow Lift and a Blepharoplasty
For complete upper face rejuvenation, you may want to consider combining the brow lift and blepharoplasty procedures into a single treatment. By taking advantage of the benefits that both of these treatments offer, you can achieve more noticeable results and a significantly more youthful appearance. With both treatments, we can place incisions in very discreet locations to minimize scarring. These treatments will require some downtime, which is why patients are encouraged to combine treatments and address their concerns in a single procedure.
